ALUMNI DAY - 1967 



Presidential Changes Announced 




Dr. Paul K. Vonk to Become New 
Oglethorpe President 



Dr. Paul Kenneth Vonk has 
been named President of Ogle- 
thorpe College. 

Assuming his duties on June 1, 
Dr. Vonk becomes the eleventh 
president in Oglethorpe's history 
which dates to 1835. He will be 
the seventh president since 1916 
when the College established its 
current campus in Atlanta. 

In making the announcement 
of Dr. Vonk's appointment, Rob- 
ert L. Foreman, chairman of the 
Oglethorpe trustees, said: "We are 
extremely fortunate to obtain Dr. 
Vonk's services. He is a tested aca- 
demic administrator whose wealth 
of experience will be of great 
benefit to Oglethorpe College." 

The new Oglethorpe president 
was born on July 6, 1913 in 
Grand Rapids, Michigan, where 
he attended the public schools 
and Grand Rapids Junior Col- 
lege. He received his B.A. Degree 
from Calvin College in Grand 
Rapids in 1935 with history as 
his major. In 1939, he received 
an M.A. Degree in philosophy 
from the University of Michigan. 
He received a scholarship and 
graduate assistant at Duke Uni- 
versity in 1939-41 and after 
World War II he continued work 
at Duke on his Ph.D. Degree 
which was conferred in 1951. 

Dr. Vonk spent 15 years at the 
University of Miami, starting as 
an assistant professor in 1948 and 
serving as dean of the University 
and College from 1960-63. He 



was vice-president for Academic 
Affairs and professor of philos- 
ophy at Parsons College in Fair- 
field, Iowa from 1963 until 1965 
when he joined the University of 
West Florida in Pensacola where 
he has been vice-president for 
Academic Affairs and professor of 
philosophy the past two years. 

A member of many professional 
organizations, Dr. Vonk is a past 
president and vice-president of 
the Southern Society for Philos- 
ophy and Psychology, a former 
secretary-treasurer of the Florida 
Philosophical Association and 
chairman of the Higher Educa- 
tion Section of the Florida Edu- 
cation Association. He is a mem- 
ber of several honorary societies: 
Phi Kappa Phi, Omicron Delta 
Kappa, Phi Eta Sigma, Kappa 
Delta Pi and Phi Delta Kappa. 

A member of the Presbyterian 
church, Dr. Vonk has been a very 
active participant in campus and 
community religious groups. 

He is co-author of "Introduc- 
tion to College," published by 
Allyn & Bacon. He has written 
numerous book reviews and spe- 
cial papers. 

Dr. Vonk is married to the for- 
mer Idalee Wolf and they have 
two children, Claire, 18, a sopho- 
more at Tulane and Paul Ken- 
neth, 13, an eighth grader. Mrs. 
Vonk is a celebrated author of 
many books and other publica- 
tions in the field of religious edu- 
cation and children's literature. 




Dr. Paul R. Beall Resigns 
Oglethorpe Presidency 

Dr. Paul R. Beall, president of 
Oglethorpe College, has resigned 
effective May 31. 

Having served as the College's 
chief executive since October of 
1964, Beall will return to his 
chosen field, that of aerospace 
consultation. 

In formally submitting his res- 
ignation to the trustees, Dr. Beall 
stated: "Working with you, we 
have, in a short time revitalized 
the College, started new build- 
ings, and developed a master plan 
for one of the nation's best inde- 
pendent Arts and Sciences Col- 
leges. Let us continue our faith 
and work in assurance that Ogle- 
thorpe will come to its destined 
excellency. I know that it will." 

Under Beall's administration, 
Oglethorpe has grown from an 
enrollment of 325 to the present 
900 students. A building program 
was instituted and new dormi- 
tory facilities and a student union 
building are currently under 
construction. The school also 
adopted the trimester system and 
strengthened its faculty. 

Robert L. Foreman, chairman 
of the Oglethorpe trustees stated: 
"We will always be indebted to 
Dr. Beall for his untiring efforts 
in behalf of Oglethorpe. The 
growth program that he insti- 
tuted will be carried forward in 
the years to come. On behalf of 
the trustees, I would like to 
thank Paul personally and wish 
him well in his future endeavors."

The scene: Alumni Day, 1966 
Remember? Senator Herman Talmadge is shown ad- 
dressing the group assembled for ground- 
breaking ceremonies of the new dormitories 



and student union building. 

This year, alumni will be able to visit the 
nearly completed dormitories and see the 
progress made on the student union. 



Paul Rensselaer Beall 




Shortly after the exodus of a president, his ad- 
ministration is given a tag. 

Dr. Paul R. Beall will probably be remembered as 
the "building president" at Oglethorpe. 

During the almost three years of his presidency, Dr. 
Beall fought for, guided and watched with interest the 
progress of the dormitory complex and the new stu- 
dent union building. The dormitories are nearing com- 
pletion and hopefully will be ready for occupancy this 
fall. The student union will be finished in 1968. 

Paul Beall leaves Oglethorpe on May 31 to continue 
his career in writing and consulting. He has made his 
mark at Oglethorpe and he will long be remembered 
as "the man who revitalized the College." Beall was 
urgently concerned about the master plan for the col- 
lege and the architectural conceptions to support the 
plan. He thoroughly agreed with Mr. Justice Holmes 
that "We need education in the obvious more than in 
investigation of the abstruse." Not a reactionary, he 
enjoys Mencken, Thurber, Runyon, Graves, and Stein- 
beck to mention a few. He likes to visit artist friends 
at Big Sur. He has been adamant however, in his quest 
to keep the new buildings in the architectural style of 
Old Oglethorpe. This he has managed to do. 

A firm believer in private education, Beall dreamed 
of a school that would be one of the best in America. 
He wanted 2,000 students eventually. There were 325 
on hand when he came, now Oglethorpe nears 900, 
almost half-way to the Beall formula. 

Beall dreamed of a superlative faculty and added 
many new Ph.D.'s . . . enough to rank Oglethorpe 
with the highest percentage of these distinguished fel- 



lows in Georgia and one of the best in the South. 

The campus took on a new look under Beall's ad- 
ministration. The grass got greener, the rooms were 
painted (with the exception of woodwork), the fac- 
ulty and staff offices were improved, new student 
facilities and recreation areas were made available 
and the rusty coke box in front of Lupton was carried 
to the junk heap. In fact, cobwebs became a rarity 
instead of an everyday thing. 

The challenge of Oglethorpe did not ruffle Beall's 
crusty Iowa mien. He responded magnificently the 
best way he knew how ... by taking action. He has 
what the Scotch call "a touch o' class," the kind of 
thing Adlai Stevenson had, and Arnold Palmer and 
Charlie Chaplin — a touch of class which gives grace 
to work. 

Paul Beall started something that the new adminis- 
tration, Trustees, President's Council, faculty, students 
and alumni will have to continue. The challenge is 
now ours. 

In submitting his resignation to the Trustees, Dr. 
Beall said: "In the present changing patterns (growth 
patterns) at Oglethorpe College, Helen and I hope that 
we have your understanding and good wishes; we 
cherish them, as also we cherish the College." 

In his inaugural address, Dr. Beall concluded with 
remarks Daniel Webster once stated : "It is, sir, a small 
college. And yet, there are those who love it." 

We might paraphrase the ebullient Mr. Webster in 
a summation of the Beall regime: "It is, sir, a much 
improved college. And there are those of us who will 
always remember you." 




"Our cultural heritage is the lasting traditional 

and conventional. 'Most every contemporary thing is 

incessantly on trial to see if il will be good 

enough lo become traditional." 



"J know the merit of much contemporary 
structural lechnk thai is economical Certainly ire 
must use the sensibly indicated modern materials 
components and fabricating methods. 'Too frequently, 
however, a quick and dirty method proves lo 
be cheap and so is adopted as vogue. Example-. il is 
cjuite ibe thing nowadays in painting a room to, 
by jiminy, paint it. Blind labox is satisfactory. Paint 
being selected, walls, woodwork, light and 
switchplate, picture moulding, window frames, 
doorknobs, lockplates and bey are painted. A cat 
walking in on such a paint job does so at bis peril. The 
ultimately cheap paint fob. Hall oj the beautiful 
rooms in Old Oglethorpe have been so painted. We have 
restored some of them and hope lo rescue others." 



"Jbe indomitable men who built the Cathedral 

of Charlies might bare built a hundred lesser churches and 

contributed insignificantly lo architecture and Christianity." 




Tommy Norwood Joins Oglethorpe Coaching Staff 



Tommy Norwood is the new Ogle- 
thorpe baseball coach and assist- 




ant basketball coach. 

An ex-Oglethorpe athlete, Nor- 
wood is considered by many to 



be the greatest basketball player 
ever to wear a Petrel uniform. 

The new Oglethorpe coach re- 
places John Guthrie who is the 
new assistant basketball coach at 
George Washington University. 

Norwood, who played with ath- 
letic director and head basketball 
coach Bill Carter during the 1959 
season at Oglethorpe owns prac- 
tically all of the career basketball 
records at Oglethorpe. Between 
1959 and 1962, Norwood scored 
1201 points, bagged 470 field 
goals and averaged 12.6 points 
per game. All are current Petrel 
records. He was All-State all 4 
years at Oglethorpe and was 
named captain of the elite five 
his senior year. 

The 27 year old Norwood was 
also All-Star in baseball during 
his college days. He signed pro- 



fessionally with the Philadelphia 
Phillies in 1962 and played AA 
ball with Williamsport, Pennsyl- 
vania and Chattanooga, Tennes- 
see the next two seasons. He was 
traded to Washington in 1964 
and played with the Senators' 
York, Pennsylvania farm club. 

For the past two years, Nor- 
wood has coached basketball at 
Clarkston High School. 

An Atlanta native, Norwood is 
a product of Southwest DeKalb 
High School where he was a much 
sought after prep star. 

In announcing Norwood's ap- 
pointment, Carter said: "It will 
be a real pleasure to team with 
Tommy again. We considered 
several prospects but feel that 
Tommy's basketball and baseball 
savvy makes him invaluable to 
Oglethorpe's athletic program. 



John Guthrie Named Assistant Basketball 
Coach at George Washington University 



John Guthrie has been named 
assistant basketball coach at 
George Washington University, 
in Washington, D.C. 

The 26 year old Guthrie leaves 
Oglethorpe College where he has 
served as assistant basketball 
coach for the past two years and 
head baseball coach for the past 
year. 

His duties at George Washing- 
ton will be those of assistant to 
head basketball coach Wayne 
Dobbs, scouting and recruiting. 
Dobbs himself is a former Ogle- 
thorpe graduate. 

One of the all-time greats at 
Atlanta's Murphy High School, 
Guthrie graduated in 1958 after 
making All-State in basketball 
and playing in the All-Star bas- 
ketball and baseball games. 

Guthrie received his BA in 
Secondary Education at Ogle- 



thorpe in 1962, and lettered in 
basketball and baseball. He 
coached the Oglethorpe Junior 
Varsity to a 9-3 season in 1962. 

In 1963 he served as assistant 
coach at Southwest DeKalb and 
became head coach the following 
two seasons. His teams won a 
total of 25 and lost 20 during his 
two years at the school. He was 
assistant coach in baseball for 
three years at Southwest DeKalb 
and his teams won 26 out of 30 
ball games. 

Guthrie is a member of the 
growing roster of Basketball 
coaches who played at Ogle- 
thorpe under Garland Pinholster. 
Others are Bill Carter, head coach 
at Oglethorpe and Pat Stephens, 
assistant coach at the University 
of Georgia. Numerous Pinholster 
products are coaching High 
School teams in Georgia.

Have You Made 
Your Alumni 
Gift This Year? 



Jim Walker of Providence, who 
made everybody's All-America, is 
the top vote-getter on Ogle- 
thorpe's All-Opponent team. 

The Friar senior, who is the 
top pro prospect of this season, 
was a unanimous first team mem- 
ber on. the ballots of the Petrel 
players, as was John Dickson of 
Arkansas State and Herb Mc- 
Pherson of Murray State. 

Walker was instrumental in 
breaking the game wide open as 
Providence defeated Oglethorpe 
74-57. The Petrels trailing by 
only a point at halftime grabbed 
an early lead in the second half 
at 37-32, and then Walker took 
command. He scored 13 of his 
team's next 26 points and made 
several assists to put the contest 
out of reach. The Petrels did take

Walker to 22 markers, one of his 
season's lowest scoring efforts. 

Dickson, the 6-11 Arkansas 
State giant scored 36 points in 
leading Arkansas State to an 82- 
81 win over Oglethorpe. Dickson 
made 15 out of 16 field goal at- 
tempts, his last one was the most 
important. With 4 seconds left, he 
hoisted the shot that won the 
game. 

Murray's McPherson had 22 
points and 9 rebounds as Murray 
stopped the Petrels 90-75. Mc- 
Pherson more recently showed 
the way in Murray's upset win 
over Western Kentucky. 

Billy Chumbler, Murray guard

Petrels Conclude 
Fine Season 

Doug Alexander scored 43 points 
(including 16 field goals) for a 
new school record. Bill Carter fin- 
ished his initial season on a win- 
ning note with a winning 18-8 
record. 

These were the items on which 
the Petrel squad took stock as 
they polished off their last post- 
game meal of the season on 
March 2. 

Chattanooga had become the 
final victim of 1966-67 when 
Oglethorpe doomed them 86-78. 
It was sweet revenge for Carter's 
Club which was upset by Chat- 
tanooga 77-76 in mid-January. 

The mood was a happy one 
except when someone would men- 
tion the NCAA College Division 
Tournament. The Petrels still 
feel that they should have been 
invited for several good reasons: 

Reason #1— The 18-8 mark of 
Oglethorpe was better than the 
17-8 record posted by Stetson, 
who received the bid. 

Reason #2 — The tougher 
schedule that was played by the 
Petrels, as compared to the one 
played by Stetson. 

Reason #3 — The past good 
showings by Oglethorpe in NCAA 
tourney competition. 

Bitterness is not an Ogle- 
thorpe trademark, however, and 
the Petrels will pack away the 
basketball equipment with an eye 
toward next season. 

Next year should be a good 
one as Oglethorpe will return all 
of its players. 

The record-breaking Alexander 
plus Jerry Sams and Roger Lit- 
tell will be Seniors. Johnny-come- 
lately Mike Dahl, J. P. Bruzek, 
Jim Hoggarth, Earl Blair, Doug 
Cole and Jerry Lee will be Ju- 
niors with a good crop of Fresh- 
man hopefuls moving up to sec- 
ond-year status. Carter is also 
hopeful of nabbing some high 
school stars for a good freshman 
crop. 




Oglethorpe Teams Take Spring Break 



The Oglethorpe College tennis 
team took the spring vacation 
break with an impressive 6-2 
record. 

Coach Bill Carter's swingers 
have lost their matches with two 
national powers, Georgia and 
Kalamazoo, and came up with 
impressive victories over Vander- 
bilt and William and Mary. They 
also defeated West Georgia twice 
and posted single triumphs over 
Appalachian and Chattanooga. 

Mid-season statistics show that 
the Petrel's big four of Joe Den- 
nis, Robbie Smith, Byron Wal- 
beck and Robbie Danner have 
played exceptionally well. Dennis, 



who plays the number three sin- 
gles spot leads the club in wins 
with 7 out of 8. Smith and Wal- 
beck who have alternated at num- 
ber one and number two and 
Danner, number four, have identi- 
cal 6-2 marks. 

The number one doubles com- 
bo of Smith and Dennis lost their 
opening match and then rolled 
to seven straight triumphs. Wal- 
beck and Danner have won 6 out 
of 7 in their partnership. 

The first female varsity ath- 
lete in Oglethorpe history, Sharon 
Gleason has fared well against 
the male competition, winning 3 
of 5 outings.
