DEVELOPMENT CAMPAIGN NEWS 



ARTHUR HOWELL 




John C. Spencer, Chairman of the Development Committee, spot- 
lighted Arthur Howell in his February newsletter. This distinguished 
Princeton graduate and Atlanta lawyer has done many noteworthy 
things for Oglethorpe as Trustee but none so awesome as his having 
obtained the $250,000 anonymous challenge matching pledge. The 
Development Committee continues an all-out effort to meet the chal- 
lenge and Dr. Pinholster, Dean of Administration, has begun a program 
of involvement with the students and faculty at Oglethorpe to enlist 
their cooperation in securing the funds to realize this $250,000 grant. 

It seems fitting that we spotlight a Princeton man this month in 
view of Thornwell Jacobs' dream to produce a Princeton of the South. 
Arthur Howell (former Chairman of Oglethorpe's Board of Trustees) has 
the remarkable distinction of attending Harvard too; after which he was 
admitted to practice law in 1942. His firm's name is Jones, Bird and 
Howell. His son "Speed" (Arthur, Jr.) recently joined the firm fresh 
from Princeton where he was an outstanding member of the varsity 
tennis team. Another son, Richard, currently plays for Princeton. Tennis 
has been a family affair at the Howell house as Arthur, wife Carrie, and 
all six children have racked up enough trophies to fill one room of their 
home on Tuxedo Road. Carrie gets all the credit for tutoring the clan 
on their backyard court. Arthur is a director and counselor for Atlantic 
Steel Company; Vice President, Director of Creomulsion Company and 
Southwest Investors, Inc.; the General Chairman of United Appeal in 
1955, and a Trustee of Atlanta Speech School, Morehouse, Westminster 
and Princeton to mention a few of his many activities. He is the past 
President of the Atlanta Lawyers Club, a Presbyterian (deacon), mem- 
ber of Phi Beta Kappa and the Piedmont, Commerce and Capital City 
Clubs. In the words of his loyal secretary, Mrs. Thompson, "In addition, 
he does practice law." 



THE FLYING PETREL 
PROUDLY SPOTLIGHTS 




TWO - ALL-TIME 
PETREL GREATS 

Back when basketballs were hard to 
come by at Oglethorpe . . . 

Back when our Petrels roared to 
victories in borrowed gyms and 
practiced in their famous "cracker 
box" located under (yes, down un- 
der) Lupton Hall . . . 

Back when the coach wore a flat 
top haircut and bow tie . . . 

Back when Steve Schmidt won the 
office of President of the Boosters' 
Club every year . . . 



Pat Stephens 



these two youngsters were both 
Oglethorpe students and athletes. 
They cracked their skulls against 
the gym wall every day learning 
things like the Wheel, aggressiveness, 
discipline, continuity, spirit, and 
how to be a winner! 

Pat Stephens began a training pro- 
gram with Goodbody & Company 
in Atlanta on March 2, 1970, to 
become a Registered Representative. 
He will complete the program on 
September 2, 1970. Pat and his 
family reside in Atlanta and he and 
wife, Sandra, keep busy these days 
with their 1 1 month old daughter, 
Susan. Pat left a very successful 
basketball coaching career at the 
University of Georgia to join Good- 
body.

Johnny Guthrie 



On the other hand, John Guthrie is finishing up his first season 
as Assistant Basketball Coach at the University of Georgia. He 
has played an important role in the success of this year's 
basketball program at Georgia. John's wife, Angela, is a grad- 
uate of Georgia State University and is currently teaching at 
Oglethorpe Elementary School in Athens. 

Both Pat and John are not only highly respected in their pro- 
fessions but also as community leaders. They are winners in 
the truest sense while wearing Oglethorpe's label. 

Oglethorpe College takes pride in saluting these two out- 
standing alumni.
