To paraphrase, Betas in the Arts reflects mightily on the Fraternity principle that "man without intellect would be little better than the brute." With intellect, it follows, comes an appreciation of the arts and achievement therein.
The third book in the series -- the first two being Beta Statesmen (2010) and Beta Heroes (2011) -- painstakingly chronicles those distinguished Betas who have devoted their lives to the arts: visual, musical, performing and writing, even those who labor behind the scenes in television, motion pictures, opera, theater, music and publishing.
"As you read these pages," the author notes, "it will not go unnoticed that you may ponder, 'Hmmm, I didn't know he is a Beta.'" Many such surprises await you, from painters and writers to musicians and poets, actors, producers and directors.
"Such a remarkable legend of talent has rarely been assembled under a common umbrella" -- the nearly 200,000 members of Beta Theta Pi since 1839 -- as today many more Betas position themselves to make their contributions and prove themselves in the arts in the years ahead.
