TO THE MEMBERS OF THE SENIOR CLASS OF 1951 

One of the keenest satisfactions that can come to the Administration 
of a College is to watch the gradual growth of a student from entrance 
in to the Freshman Class on through the four years to the time of grad- 
uation. It has been an inspiration to observe you through this four year 
period and a source of pride to see the great progress which you have 
made. 



Every student is a potential Alumnus and every Alumnus is one link 
in that endless chain of strength that makes the College what it is. 

It is my hope that this final year for you at St. Augustine's College is 
merely a stepping stone to a realm of experience in which all of your 
splendid talent will reach its highest fruition. 
Yours very cordially, 




Harold L. Trigg 
President

DEDICATEE 









The best things in life completely surround us, even to the point of making history. 
This book is a marker, dedicated to one who has made history. The setting sun casting 
shadows over the graduation of this class, has shone throughout a day, four years long, 
in which the Class of '51 and the Dedicatee together began their story at St. Augustine's. 
To say why we dedicate this work to him, would entail a complete history of his life. 

A prominent person requires only a short introduction, since his work speaks more 
strongly than words can express. For this reason, the Class of '51 proudly dedicates this 
"Falcon" to Dr. Harold L. Trigg, first Negro President of St. Augustine's College. The 
Class of '51, therefore, would like to assure you, President Trigg, of their sincere appre- 
ciation for your expert guidance during the four years beginning September 1947, when 
we started our respective careers here. 

And so, with very deep regrets, we take leave of you, and at the same time promising 
that we shall ever keep before us and practice those precepts that you taught us.

THE REVEREND WENDELL M. PASCO 

Chaplain 

To the first senior class that I've seen go out from St. Augustine's, I say "God go 
with you." 

I could describe the senior class as those who have successfully passed Bible I and 
II. But I hope I can further describe them as those who have caught a glimpse of the 
spirit of true religion, the spirit of God who has been at work among men since the 
beginning of time. I hope you are leaving with the conviction that the living Spirit who 
shines so clearly through the problems and uncertainties of the Holy Bible does in the 
same way survive the chaos and darkness of the modern world and of our sometimes 
confused lives. If this is your faith, you take with you "one perfect thing." 

I can sincerely say that some of my best friends are seniors.

CLASS SONG 



Great day of days that here has brought us, 
For nought, save the joy of success. 

New friends to meet 

New faces greet, 
New emblems of those words so rare 
Veritas Liberabit Vos! 

Long have we lived within thy safe walls, 
We count the hours midst joy and hope. 

Our fates foresaw, 

Our dreams in awe — 
Yet in the midst we always saw 
Veritas Liberabit Vos! 

Now with the wide sea of life before us, 
Our ships with mast and rudder fit. 

And ivhen storms wage 

And tempests rage, 
May we cry out with louder strains 
Veritas Liberabit Vos!

CLASS POEM 



Saint Augustine's, Saint Augustine's 

Thy gate shall forever stand ajar, 

As the open arms of a mother eager to enfold 

Daughters and sons from near and afar, 

Seeking comfort from the winds and the cold. 

Thy guiding light in which we trust 
Leading onward to unknown heights 
Higher and higher we climb, fearing the dust — 
That blinds us on our way. 

Saint Augustine's, thou art a ivinding path, 

Years long trodden by men of renown. 

In their footsteps we are walking 

Forward, looking upicard — yea, up; never down. 

Dear Saint Augustine's, 

Thou art an ever-springing fountain of knowledge, 

That surges o'er the mountain's brink. 

Thou quenchest our thirst and yet we crave — 

Ah! But one more drink. 

— Thelma Powell 






A THOUGHT FOR THE SENIOR CLASS 



I expect to pass through this world but once. Any good therefore that I can do, or any 
kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now. Let me not defer or 
neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again. 

— Anonymous 



CLASS HISTORY 



Dear Alma Mater, 

It is just about time for us to leave you, but before we say our goodbyes, there are a 
few unforgettable events from the past four years that we would like to record. 

Do you recall that September day in in 1947 when we first arrived? There were one 
hundred and ninety-seven of us; but though we were strong in number, we were a little 
frightened, a little excited, and above all, a little homesick. 

'47 was an eventful year at St. Augustine's for it was that year that Dr. Harold L. 
Trigg assumed the presidency of the College. This was especially significant in that Dr. 
Trigg was the first Negro to hold this position. 

Somehow, we managed to survive the hazing of the upper classmen, and we soon felt 
that we knew each other well enough to elect class officers. We chose the following: 
President, Sylvester Thorpe; Vice President, James Brown; and Secretary, Valena 
Wynne. 

During the second semester we began to feel more at home and we joined some of the 
now extinct social clubs. There were the Les Elites Society, the Veleda Club, and the 
Zeta Sigma Kho Society for the girls; and for the boys there were the Acies and the 
Chancellors' Clubs. 

We contributed such athletes as Lorrie Alexander, Roland Miles, Clifford Statham, 
Willie Young and others. 

When the end of the year came, we found that we had not done too badly. Barbara 
Hall, Althia McLaurin, Jacqueline Mitchell, Lawrence Overton, Myrlin Skinner, Cecil 
Randall, and others were recipients of some of the awards and scholarships, which were 
presented on Commencement day. 

When we returned for our Sophomore year, we greatly missed those who had not 
returned. They were Sylvester Thorpe, Catherine Holliday, Pauline Martin, and others 
However, they had our best wishes for success in whatever new situation each found 
himself. James Brown replaced Sylvester Thorpe as class president. 

Most of the fraternities and sororities got chapters on the campus that year. The 
power of the social clubs was gradually ebbing, and by the end of the year they had all 
disbanded. Although we welcomed the Greek letter organizations to the campus, it was 
with a twinge of regret that we saw the last of the social clubs. 

Mary Perry Rudolph Archer, Malvina Demby, Nancy Pethel among others appeared 
in the Music Department's production of the Gilbert and Sullivan Operetta, the 
"Mikado." They did a fine job and we were proud of them. 

That is the year that the President's Assembly came into being. Instituted by Dr. 
Trigg, it was designed to give recognition to the worthy for the achievements of the 
past year. 

We faced the Junior Year with James Brown again at the helm. 



Several memorable events occurred that year. Among them. Alexander Morris 
received C. I. A. A. recognition in the field of boxing. Leroy Jones was appointed as a 
candidate for West Point. Laurels to them both! 

At the President's Assembly that year the Kappa Zeta Chapter of the Alpha Kappa 
Mu Honor Society received its charter. Here again our class was represented — by 
Myrlin Skinner. Leroy Jones. Donald Ashman, and Leonard Allen. 

And so we come to the Senior and final year. There is only about half of the 
original number left yet it is still the largest graduating class in the history of the 
College. 

We were quite proud of Inez Hall, Mary Perry, Myrlin Skinner, and Leroy Jones, 
Ruth Swindell. Valeria Wynne and Donald Ashman, for being selected to appear in 
Who's Who Among Students in American Colleges and Universities. 

We cheered at the news of Roland Miles and Clifford Statham's being signed up with 
the Boston Braves. May they go far in the world of sports! 

We can never forget that due to the efforts of the mighty Falcons. St. Augustine's 
defeated Shaw for the first time in almost two decades. This was trulv a gala event in 
the history of the school. 

So, our four years have come to an end. You, Alma Mater, have prepared us to take 
our places in life, and we will never forget what vou have done for us, and so we bid 
you Adieu!
