NACTA (North American Association of Colleges and Teachers of Agriculture)

Delta Tau Alpha (DTA) was founded in 1960 as a result of a proposal by Professor John D. Schatz, Southwest Missouri State College during a NACTA Conference in 1958. He believed that there was a need for a national organization or society for agricultural majors in the non-land grant colleges and universities for promoting and honoring scholarship in these schools and he moved that such a national scholastic society be organized. Thus, DTA became a reality. A complete history of DTA may be found in the National Constitution & By-Laws of the Honor Society of Delta Tau Alpha.
