My condolences to the Spellman family. I just recently heard about Dr. Spellman's passing. After reading the obituary, i am struck by how humble he was. i had the pleasure of attending many family events and had no idea I was in the presence of such a great man.

On November 11, 1938 Bro. Mitchell W. Spellman and seven other men chartered the Beta Phi Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity located on the campus of Dillard University. Since that day every brother of Beta Phi learned your name and held high the principles of scholarship, service and brotherhood. I want to say thank you Bro. Spellman for setting the bar high for us to follow in your example of excellence. It was an honor to have been in your presence in 2004 and to learn of your early fraternal experience. The Brothers of Beta Phi will continue to pray for your family and please know that your brothers of Beta Phi will always remember you. 06-38

My prayers are with the Spellman Family. I feel like a member of the family because I was delivered by Dr.Frank Spellman also my five sisters in Alexandria,Louisiana. Dr. Spellman named me after Mrs. Spellman. I spent time with them during the summers. The people of Alexandria were very close to this family. May God Bless all of you.

What a beautiful photo of Dr. Spellman. It is exactly how I remember him at those wonderful gatherings at your family home on Colorado Ave. and in Newton, MA. He was shining light and inspiration for African American and human achievement during a very difficult period of U.S. history. Heartfelt condolences and blessings from our family to yours - Margaret Hanson-Muse on behalf of Muriel Hanson, Ann Marie Hanson, Mary Ann Hanson, Jessica Muse-Clutter(Chance),Dana Muse and Zoe Clutter

I will always remember Dr. Spellman as a kind and gentle person. I worked with him at Harvard Medical International in the early 2000's providing tech support and was often impressed at Dr. Spellman's successful attempts to master the ever changing Microsoft programs! God Bless him and his family.

My thoughts and prayers are with the Spellman family during this difficult time. Dr. Spellman was a Charter Member of the Beta Phi Chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc. founded at Dillard University in 1938. I had the honor of meeting him in 2003 during a visit to New Orleans. We honored him at a reception while here in New Orleans shortly following our 65th Anniversary Celebration. Many brothers from Beta Phi were present and were able to fellowship with him. We are forever grateful for his vision, sacrifice and commitment to Alpha Phi Alpha and Beta Phi. May you rest eternally in Omega Chapter my Brother.
