reetingsfi'om the Maryville 
College Campus! 



The last fall ot the century! And an 
exciting tall it is! Maryville College has 
grown to the 1,000 mark in enrollment 
for the first time in history. 
Construction is underway on two 
major projects: the rebuilding of 
Fayerweather Hall and the renovation 
and expansion of Harriett Hall to create 
a splendid new 
student center. A 
b e a u t i t u I I \' III 
restored Center for 
Campus Ministry 
is in frequent use. 
The College is 
implementing a 
major technology 
initiative that 

promises to be 
nothing short of 
transforming for 
the campus. And 
we are celebrating 
recognition for the 
fifth time by U.S. 
News eJ" World 
Report as a top- 10 
Southern regional 
liberal arts college. 

One hundred 
years ago things 

were also exciting for Maryville 
College. Collegiate enrollment had 
grown from the 13 students present 
when the College reopened in the fall 
of 1866 to 93 in the fall of 1900 (plus 
another 309 preparatory students). 
Fayerweather Science Hall was new. 
Bartlett Hall was almost completed as 
Maryville's first student center. The 
fourth president of the College, Dr. 
Samuel Ward Boardman, was entering 
his last year of service after presiding 
over the decade that saw more progress 




than any decade since the College was 
founded in 1819, progress that includ- 
ed the addition of the technological 
advancement of the time - electric 
lights! 

I sometimes wonder what President 
Boardman and the faculty, staff direc- 
tors and students of the College would 
have ptojected for Maryville as they 
stood on the threshold of the 20th cen- 
tury. Would they have predicted an 
enrollment growth of nearly 1,000 per- 
cent by the year 2000? Would they 
have foreseen the 40-percent increase 
in cam.pus acreage and the tripling of 
major campus 
Ir buildings? Would 
they have expect- 
ed several major 
curriculum revi- 
sions with new 
major programs 
ranging from 
Environmental 
Studies to 

American Sign 
Language? Would 
they have guessed 
that the prepara- 
tory department, 
with about three 
times the enroll- 
ment of the colle- 
giate department, 
would disappear 
entirely? Could 
they possibly 
have extrapolated from electric lights 
to the World Wide Web in every resi- 
dence hall room? 

In this issue o( FOCUS we look back 
over the century that has passed since 
Dr. Boardman's day. At Maryville 
College we are keenly aware that 
awareness of and appreciation for the 
past is important even as we look 
toward another new century 
Knowing that the progress of the 
MC2000 period is built on the 
foundation laid down by others, we 
give thanks for all those whose labors 



have brought Maryville College to the 
dawn of the 21st century. The overar- 
ching aim of the MC2000 Plan has 
been to assure that the College enters 
the new century in a position of the 
greatest strength that it has enjoyed in 
its 181-year history. I invite all the 
readers oi FOCUS to reflect with us on 
Maryville's progress during the century 
just past, to celebrate with us the 
achievements of the present, and to 
envision with us the Maryville College 
of the future. 

The envisioning of the future centu- 
ry is, of course, a tricky business. The 
best futurist among us can't possibly 
imagine the world or the College of the 
year 2100. (If you doubt this, find a 
magazine from, say, 1950, and see what 
was projected for the year 2000!) 
Change in the world around us is 
increasing at a breath-taking pace. All 
we can say with certainty is that the 
Maryville College of 2100 will be as 
different from the college of 2000 as 
Dr. Boardman's college was from 
Maryville today - and that's probably 
understated. 

What is important is to recognize 
that we not only can shape Maryville's 
future, but that we have an obligation 
to do so. We have an obligation both to 
build and preserve, to reach for new 
heights and to hold firmly to the faith, 
the principles, the sense of mission 
that have brought this college through 
an amazing century. As we enter the 
homestretch of the MC2000 Plan, we 
are beginning a new strategic planning 
process that will assure that the 
College is not merely buffeted about by 
external changes, but that we set 
thoughtfully and boldly the course we 
want to follow.

In 1912, aviation legend Orville Wright responded to a letter written to him by Samuel Boardman, then president emeritus ofMaryville College, 

"Your very kind letter of June I4th was duly received, " Wright wrote. "The matter of combining the principle of the balloon and flying machine 
has been considered by a number of persons, and some actual attempts have been made to do it, but without success. If the gas bag is made Imge enough 
to have any lifting effect, its resistance is so great and its speed so slow that the efficiency of the aeroplanes is almost entirely overcome. " 

Ten years after Boardmans death in 1917, the world would become a little smaller and life's pace would become a little faster when Charles 
Lindbergh would land the Spirit of St. Louis in Paris, following a 33-hour solo fight across the AtLmtic Ocean. 

One has to wonder if Samuel Boardman ever envisioned the cLiy when the masses would travel by air ...or when the president ofMaryville College 
himself (or herself) would depend on such a device - "flying machine" or "aeroplane" - to visit constituents and donors across the country. 

Certainly the thought of receiving Orville Wright's response by fax or e-mail would have astonished even Boardman, ivho was highly educated and 
forward-thinking. 

Today, Maryville College lives with these realities - the airplane, the fax machine, the Internet - and many others. Science and technology guar- 
antee that the 21st century will be filled with more change. But one reality of yesteryear rings as true today as it did in 1900: Maryville College is

TURIES 



". . . Maryville gathers within its walls an 
exceptionally earnest body of young people. 
Many of them have some definite vocation 
in mind before entering, and lend all their 
energies toward adequate preparation for 
it. " - Samuel Tyndale Wikon, 1916 

As a high school senior, Nikki Note knew 
that she was being called to be a minister. What 
she didn't know was where God was calling her 
to begin her higher education. 

The daughter of a Presbyterian minister and 
a young woman deeply involved in Presbyterian 
youth organizations, Noto eventually setded on 
a Presbyterian-affiliated school in South 
Carolina. 

But it was not for her. 

"What I was looking fot was a school with a 
connectedness to the church and the communi- 
ty," Noto explained. "1 didn't feel that at all 
where I was." 

At that point, the Sweetwater, Tenn., native 
remembered a conversation she had had with 
Maryville College Chaplain Stephen Nickle 
prior to her first semester in South Carolina. 

"Stephen Nickle's father was my father's pto- 
fessor at Columbia Seminary in Decatut, Ga.," 
Noto said. "We had met somewhere, and 1 told 

FOCUS Autumn 1999 2 



him where I was going to college. 

"He asked me, Are you sure you want to go 
there?'" she continued. "When I told him I was 
sure, he asked me to keep Maryville in mind in 
case things didn't work out." 

Things didn't work out, and Noto trans- 
ferred to Maryville College for the second 
semester of her freshman year. But she still was- 
n't sure whether or not the East Tennessee 
school was where she was meant to be. 

"I assumed that I would come here for a 
semester and then go elsewhere," she said. "But 
here I found what I was looking for: a connec- 
tion to the community and a connection to the 
church as a whole." 

At Maryville, Noto is double majoring in 
religion and theatre. Completing the require- 
ments for two majors demands a lot of class- 
room and study time, but whatever free time 
she has left, Noto fills with extracurricular activ- 
ities that mirror her passions. Noto has become 
a regular cast member on the MC stage, and she 
contributes much to the spiritual life of the 
campus. 

It was during the summer of 1998 when 
Noto and another student, Sara Baker '99, 
decided to form "Sisters in Spirit," a campus 



organization whose purpose is to encourage 
women on campus to discuss theit faith, 
become educated about world issues that affect 
humankind and involve themselves in service. 

"We attended the National Network of 
Presbyterian Women in St. Louis and learned 
about the need for women to connect on a spir- 
itual level," Noto said. "We felt that we needed 
to start a group that would provide that kind of 
community." 

With a mailing list of 70 students. Sisters in 
Spirit has received a wonderfiil response from 
women on campus, Noto said. Last May, the ^ 
group was recognized as the best student organ- 7 
ization by the College's Student Development 
Office. 

Noto said she knows she will be a leader in 
the church "in some way" following graduation. 
Seminary is a likely possibility for Noto; infor- / 
mation from McCormick and Columbia semi-"' 
naries is already appearing in her mailbox. The 
Presbyterian Church's Young Adult Intern 
Program interests her, as well, because of the 
opportunity to serve in women's ministries. 

Her experiences at Maryville College have 
opened her eyes to the broad scope of ministry, 
she said. 



"Never let a professor of this institution say, 
as one of the professors of one of our larger insti- 
tutions is reported to have said: 'We are not 
responsible for the character or the morals or the 
vices of our students; only for their instruction. ' 
Let this College continue to accept responsibili- 
ty for character as well as teaching. " - Rev. E. 
A. Elmore of the Synod of Tennessee at the 
inauguration of Dr. Wilson, 1901 

They are her heroes. 

They minister to her - not always in an 
"overt kind of way" but by showing the love ot even though Edwin 
Christ through compassion and concern, she Hunter, Horace Orr 
said. 



said. "Over and over I hear how these teachers 
changed and shaped the lives of these former 
students. 

"Most often the emphasis is on the standards 
thev set, the "enuine care thev demonstrated tor 



their students and the 
imparted," he added. 

Sadly, many of the 
faculty members Dr. 
Gibson reads about 
have passed on. And

"They're incredible people doing interesting 
things with their lives," Nikki Noto said of her 
professors and faculty mentors. "1 feel privi- 
leged to have them as teachers." 

Perhaps no thread runs more visibly and 
strongly through Marwille College's history 
than that of faculty admiration. 



Dr. Russell Parker

several current

And to alumna and registrar Martha Hess 
'67, there are striking similarities between the 
faculty members she learned from 30 years ago 




Dr. Chad Berrv 



Dr. Wayne Anderson, the College's eighth and those with whom she works today, 
president, once told an audience in 1982 that On her drive home late one afternoon, she 

he kept in his desk a thick file of "hearrwarm- saw Associate Professor of Biolog)' Dr. Paul 



ers" - letters from former Maryville College stu- 
dents who wished to thank faculty members for 
having "profound impacts" on their lives and 
showing concern for them as individuals. 

Maryville College President Dr. Gerald 
Gibson frequently heats similar testimonials as 
he travels the country' for alumni gatherings. 

"The facult)' I hear about the most often are 
Arda Walker '40, Fred Griffitts '25, Dr. 
Hunter '14, Professor Howell '22, Dr. Orr

Cummings, Elizabeth Jackson," the president

Threadgill and several students on campus, 
labeling the trees. She said it immediately 
brought back fond memories of Dr. A. 
Randolph Shields '34, who chaired the 
Division of Natural Sciences for many years 
before retiring in the early 1 970s. 

The combination of gruff exterior and kind 
heart seen in Threadgill also makes her think of 
Shields. 

"He's a wonderful advisor. He cares about his 
students," Hess said of the biology professor "I 
never worr)' about Paul's advisees being short on 

credits or requirements 

for graduation." 

Both instructors ot 
primarily treshman 
composition courses, 
Lynn King Coning 
'89 and Jessie 
Katherine Johnson 
'21 would have taught 
in the same building 
and enjoyed each 
other's company had 
30 years not separated 
the retirement of one 
and the employment of 
the other, Hess specu- 
lated. 

"Miss Johnson was a 



''^''l^ 



grammarian with a capital 'G.' She spoke very 
precisely and clearly," the registrar said. "Lynn's 
speech is also ver\' accurate and precise. I'm sure 
her teaching is like that." 

Johnson was a beauty queen while at 
Maryville College in the early part ot the centu- 
ry, and Coning's blond 
hair and fair features 
serve as another 
reminder of their simi- 
larities. 

To the best teachet 
she ever had in her life, 
Hess compares Dr. 
Dean Bolden, professor 
of sociologj' and for- 
mer dean ot the College. 

"Dr. Arda Walker gave her students the won- 
derful foundation vou have to have when you 
study history," Hess said. "Her travel experi- 
ences made the difference. She brought those 
experiences into the classroom, so her students 
learned more than the dates, the places and the 
people of histot)'. They learned about the 
hearts of the people." 

Bolden, who took a sabbatical and traveled 
the Middle East last year, will teach the first 
World Cultures 350: Comparative Cultures class 
this spring. 

"The basis ot his teaching comes from his 
travels," Hess said. "He has to travel to be the 
teacher he is." 

Local interest - and not so much interna- 
tional - creates for Hess a similarit}' between 
Dr. Russell Parker and Dr. Chad Berry. 

Parker, who chaired the history department 
until his death in 1987, studied the histon,' of 
the Alcoa community and was interested in the 
Cherokee history of the area. Berry, a native 
Hoosier and assistant professor of history, has 
become an active member of the city of 
Maryville's Historic Zoning Commission and 
the College Hill Historic District. He works to 
preserve the historical neighborhoods in 
Mar)'ville. 

Bert)' said he is "honored" to be compared to 
Parker. Before the history department moved 
into Anderson Hall, Bern.' occupied the same 
office as Parker and said he often "felt [Parker's] 
presence." 

"We are both American historians," Berry 
said of himself and Parker. "And another simi- 
larity is that Dr. Parker taught Aftican history 
here. I teach southern African history now."

Hess never met the legendan' Lady Jane 
Bancroft Smith Alexander, but from what she 
has read, Hess said Dr. Susan Schneibel is doing 
for the Humanities what Lady Jane did for the 
division in the early 1900s. 

But the similarities don't stop there, Hess 
said. 

"The breadth ot what they can teach is very 
similar," the registrar said. "Lady Jane taught 
French, German, history and literature. She was 
also very educated - I think she spent a year at 
the Sorbonne. 

"Susan has studied abroad and teaches simi- 
lar courses, " Hess continued. 

Because of the collective efforts of Alexander 
and Schneibel, the English and histon,' depart- 
ments of Maryville College have been "particu- 




Lady Jane Alexander Dr. Susan Schneibel 

larly strong" and will continue to be strong, she 
said. 

"The general object of the courses of study is 
the thorough and symmetrical development of 
the intellectual powers and moral character of 
the student - not so much to make specialists as 
to graduate men fidly equipped for the highest 
demands that may be made of college-bred men 
everywhere. The liberally educated man is best 
equipped for achieving success in any special 
work to which he may be called in subsequent 
life." -The Maryville College Bulletin, 1905 

For the Senior Thesis project she will begin 
during the Spring 2000 semester, Nikki Noto 
will combine her religion and theatre majors 
into a single project. Currently, she believes that 
project will take the form of a play based on the 
biblical book of Esther. 

Noto said she is interested in studying the 
feminism demonstrated by Queen Vashn and 
Queen Esther. 

While students at the turn of the 20th cen- 
tury would have certainly studied the Bible, 
they would not have been required to write a 
Senior Thesis. Though several students wrote 
theses as part of an Honors Work program, it 
wasn't until the curriculum revision of 1947 
that they had to undertake the research and 
writing project (then called "Special Studies"). 

More than five curriculum revisions have 



occurred since 1900, but general education 
courses have always reflected the values of a lib- 
eral arts education. 

The 1905 catalog places courses into 10 
"groups," which would likely be considered 
"majors" by today's standards. The groups were; 
classical, Greek, Latin, English, English litera- 
ture, modern languages, chemistry, biology, 
mathematics and economic and political sci- 
ence. Eight of the 13 graduates in 1905 con- 
centrated their studies in Latin. 

In 1910, students were required to complete 
36 courses before earning the bachelor of arts 
degree. By 1923, the requirement had changed 
to 126 semester hours. The "liberal arts course," 
as outlined in the 1923 catalog, recommends a 
balance ot Bible, math, histor}', natural science, 
ancient or modern languages, English and phys- 
ical training courses for freshman and sopho- 
more students. 

Dr. Edwin Hunter, who served as dean of 
curriculum from 1935 until 1957, started the 
first formal counseling and orientation pro- 
grams for freshmen in 1931. Honors work was 
offered in 1 932, which included comprehensive' ' 
exams at the end of study. By 1937, compre- , 
hensive exams were adopted as a requirtotent ; 
tor graduation. ^ f^ ^ ■: ~''' 

Hunter led the curriculum reviskm of l^Aj., 
for which he and other facul^f'meEHbers spent 
three years planning. Tjze Special Studies, 
tfie "cornerSfqr(e" ' 



requirement was consideS 

of that revision, but sUo included two other 



objectives: a strond^tore of general education 
courses (with an emphasis 0n Western World 
history and literatufe^_:lii^ea|^ pf strictly 
American history and literatitfdjdajjd a deduc- 
tion in both the numbet of courses, offergd.aiJd' 
the number of classes a student cwild t^ J)er 
semester. The latter objective was adopted to 
give students greater opportunity to concen- 
trate their studies. 

Twenty-five majors (not including teacher 
licensure) were offered in that curriculum. 

The next major revision was implemented in 
the fall of 1967 and designed to "take into 
account the latest developments in education." 
In contrast to the curriculum of the 1940s and 
1950s, the core curriculum had four new 
emphases. First, it attempted to make clearer 
the interrelationships among the disciplines. 
Secondly, it strengthened the courses and 
requirements for non-Western studies. Thirdly, 
it brought into the curriculum - through the 
introduction of philosophy courses for the 
freshmen - a concern for values. Lastlv, the cur- 



riculum of 1967 created more opportunities for 
students to complete experiential studies. 

Courses that offered both interdisciplinary 
study and independent study were offered dur- 
ing the four-week period between the end of fall 
term and the beginning of Christmas break, 
beginning in 1967. Called "intetim," the course 
was eventually moved to three weeks in January 
- after Christmas break and before spring 
semester. 

In the early 1980s, the curriculum was fine- 
tuned to meet more expectations in the job 
market. New majors like computer science, 
management, international studies and pre-pro- 
fessional health sciences joined the relatively 
new major in Sign Language Interpretation (a 
formal major since 1974). 

Students wishing to minor in available stud- 
ies were able to aftet the curriculum revision of 
1982. Mountain Challenge participation 
became a popular one-hour course for freshmen 
m 1986. 

The latest cutriculum revision was imple- 
mented in 1996. A curriculum task force of fac- 
ulty, staff and students submitted for approval 
general education courses that "emphasize the 
cultivatiorv-Bf those intellectual and personal 
qualities mat' mark the educated petson." The 
college catalogijeads: "Through the enhance- 
ment of skills and knowledge, the deepening of 
setisitivities and the clarification of personal 
purpose, students learn to deal responsibly with 
a world of uncertainty and accelerating 
change." 

Today, 60 credit hours of "core" curricultan^i 
courses are required for a bachelor^ of aff^ , 
degree. In addition to classes in composition," 
statistics. Biblical studies, fine, arts And natural 
and social sciences, students nb\y enroll in

Within 

these 

Halls 

hy Laurie Grogan, Director of Public Relations 



If walls could tcilk, the historic buildings on 
the Maryville College campus would be 
humming with the stories of generations. 
Until structures gain the ability to speak, how- 
ever, they must find their voices in the people 
who live, work, and learn within them. 

One of the most prominent of these voices is 
certainly Dr. Sarah McNiell '53, who experi- 
enced lite at the College as both a student and a 



campus, Anderson Hall, was completed in 
1870 and has an individual designation on the 
National Register, which was granted in 1975. 
Thanks to its distinctive tower, there is probably 
no other building on campus more closely asso- 
ciated with Maryville College. Beyond its rec- 
ognizable Federalist facade, however, Anderson 
Hall has stories to tell that reveal more about 
the character of the College and its impact on 



history professor. McNiell, who calls the cam- the community than can be learned by a simple 
pus, "an architectural museum," played a key examination of its architecture. 



role in the formation of the Maryville College 
Historic District. Comprising nine buildings, 
the Historic District was officially placed on the 
National Registet of Historic Places in 1982. 
Five more buildings were registered in subse- 
quent years. 

"Historically the college built as the need 
arose and when the money was available, and 
built in the style that was popular at the time. 



Maryville College's policy of excluding none 
from its benefits by reason of race or color, not 
only set it apart from other institutions in the 
region, but also helped the college in its 
attempts to raise funds for Anderson Hall. 
Researching the history of the building, 
McNiell discovered a letter written in 1869 by 
a lieutenant in the Knoxville office of the 
Bureau of Refugees, Freedmen and Abandoned 



The major architectural trends of the past 150 Lands, in which he commended the College for 



its policy and recommended a donation from 
the Bureau to the building fund. 

According to McNiell, the construction of 



years are represented here," said McNiell 

According to McNiell, such architectural 
diversity is common, especially among southern 
institutions. Much like 
Maryville College, many 
schools have a central cam- 
pus of older buildings with 
more contemporary struc- 
tures on the periphery. 

While McNiell noted 
that a more uniform con- 
struction style might help 
to foster a stronger sense of 
community, variety also 
has its merits. Each build- 
ing has its own personality, 
its own distinguishing fea- 
tures that link it to its era. 

The oldest building on the walkways to the Lamar Memorial Library (CCM) and Anderson HaU

Anderson's Fayerweather Addition, which was 
completed in 1892, involved a unique fund- 
raising effort as well as the personal fijnd-raising 
plan of a Maryville native with dreams of 
acquiring land in Oklahoma. McNiell recount- 
ed a story told to her by Adele McKenzie about 
her father, Thomas Brody As a young man, 
Brody drove the brick wagon used on the proj- 
ect to finance a ticket to Oklahoma where he 
hoped to stake a claim for land. After reaching 
his original goal, he reconsidered and continued 
on the job long enough to earn money for a 
return ticket in case his dreams of acquiring a 
homestead failed to materialize. 

Of all the legends surrounding the buildings 
on the Maryville College campus, the most 
retold and beloved revolves around Bartlett Hall 
and the heroic efforts of student BCin Takahashi. 
Under his direction, fellow students made more 
than 300,000 bricks for the structure, and he 
spent two years after graduation diligently rais- 
ing funds before returning to Japan. Completed 
in 1901, Bartlett Hall served as the Maryville 
College athletic center until the 1923 comple- 
tion of Alumni Gym and housed the YMCA 
until 1970. Currently undergoing extensive 
restoration and construction of a new addition, 
Bartlett Hall will be home to a new student cen- 
ter in fill 2000. 

Throughout the years, although architectur- 
al themes changed, the spirit and determination 
that made Bartlett Hall possible remained 
steadfast. Following the loss of the original 
Carnegie Hall dormitory to fire in 1916, stu- 
dents and faculty cleaned 80,000 bricks from 
the old building for use in constructing its 
replacement, which was built in 1917. In their 
book By Faith Endowed, Carolyn Blair and 
Arda S. Walker '40, tell of the especially ardent 
efforts of the students, faculty and surrounding 
community to raise funds for rebuilding the 
dormitory. 

Another common thread running through 
the tapestry of the Maryville College history is a 
sense of utility and resourcefiilness. As needs 
changed, many of the buildings took on roles 
that were quite different than originally 
planned, and often the later use proved to be 
even more fitting. 

A perfect example of this metamorphosis lies 
in Lamar Memorial Library Located in the cen- 
ter of campus, it was built as a memorial to 
Thomas Jefferson Lamar. With its turret and 
stained glass, the building had from its very 



beginning a religious air. It wasn't until 1981, st)'le into the mix.

es. It really depends on the individual experi-

ALUMNI SPOTLIGHT 



^^^ightfoot 



By Karen E. Beaty '94 

Director of News and Sports Information 

Although his contributions to Maryville 
College are widely known, Samuel T. Wilson is 
a person personally remembered by tew today - 
some 35 years after his death. 

Viola Lightfoot '34 remembers him. 



"He was nice. Impressive," she said. "He was 
a tall sort of person, a nice looking gendeman; 
sort of had an air about him. 1 was expecting 
him to look like that." 

Lightfoot met the Mary\'ille College alum- 
nus (1878) and president emeritus in 1930, just 
days after she arrived at the College lor under- 
graduate study. A student assistant to Registrar 
Anna Jones '17, Lightfoot was called upon to 
t)'pe letters to family members and other docu- 
ments lor Dr. Wilson. Later, she aided the pres- 
ident emeritus in his "Second Century 
Beginnings" addition to his 1916 history book 
"A Century of Maryville College." 

"Miss Jones admired him so much. She 
wanted to send him the best that she could for 
what he wanted done," Lightfoot said. "I con- 
sidered it quite a compliment." 

One of only three students who could t)'pe 
proficiently, Lightfoot said she worked for Jones 
almost every working hour that she was not in 
class. For 1 5 cents an hour, she took dictation 
and typed in Dr. Wilson's home on Indiana 
Avenue. Defying the rule that forbid female stu- 
dents from going downtown without a chaper- 
one, she also took Dr. Wilson's letters to the 
Maryville Post Office - alone. 

"Dr. Wilson knew how strict the rules were," 
Lightfoot said. "If I was caught. Dr. Wilson told 
me to refer the night watchman to him. He 
said: 'I'll take care of that.'" 

It was during such encounters that Lightfoot 
said she would glimpse a "rwinkle in his eye." 
Although described as "puritanical" in a 
Maryville Times editorial written at the time of 
his death. Dr. Wilson had a "keen sense of 
humor" and a mischievous side in his latter

years, according to Lightfoot. When her work 
for him needed correcting, he always corrected 
it "in good humor" and without harsh 
criticism. 

"But I tried to be carefiil," Lightfoot 
added, "because I wanted to please him." 

When Viola Lightfoot, 90, hears or reads the 
name of Samuel Wilson today, the sessions of 
t}'ping and writing in his home come to mind. 
What she remembers of his conversation and 
history book is the admiration he held for 
Maryville College and its founder. Dr. Isaac 
Anderson. 

"He was always talking about how Mar}'ville 
College stood out," she remembered. "He was 
proud that the College offered religious educa- 
tion - and that there was no detriment to the 
quality of the teaching because of [a religious 
influence]." 

From those sessions, she also remembers stu-

dents interrupting their work to ask Dr. Wilson 
about vocational choices and courses. Though 
she didn't know it at the time, Lightfoot would 
be offering the same advice to students who 
sought her counsel in the Registrar's Office only 
a few years later. 

Mentors 

Viola Lightfoot almost missed her own grad- 
uation. Figuring requirements and rolling up 
diplomas until the ver\' last second, Lightfoot 
hurriedly slipped into the procession with 125 
of her classmates and graduated cum laude. 

Jones, the College's registrar since 1930, had 
passed away a month prior to Commencement, 
leaving Lightfoot and a staff assistant to deter- 
mine who was graduating and who wasn't. 
Jones' death was "scary" to the student assistant 
for more reasons than the workload. 



"She was my mentor. She made a lot of deci- 
sions for me," Lightfoot said of Jones. "I was 
fascinated with biology and couldn't make up 
my mind what to major in. She persuaded me 
to major in English ... She thought I'd be bet- 
ter in that kind of work than [in] teaching." 

Before her death in April of 1934, Jones had 
permission to hire Lightfoot as assistant to the 
registrar. Lightfoot continued working after 
graduation, keeping the "assistant" title even 
though she was doing more leading than assist- 
ing in the office. In the late 1940s, MarvT/ille 
College President Dr. Ralph W. Lloyd '15 gave 
her the official title of "Registrar. " She remained 
the registrar until her retirement in 1974. 

In more than 40 years of service to the 
College, Lightfoot humbly said she has only 
one "claim to fame." It is not the student 
records that she kept meticulously. It is not the 
self-imposed requirement 
to learn the pronunciation 
of ever)' student's name. 
Nor is it the overtime she 
worked to stay current on 
changing requirements and 
an unyielding schedule. 

Her claim to fame is the 
very thing that Dr. Wilson 
and Miss Jones modeled 
for her: a willingness to lis- 
ten and a willingness to 
advise. 

"I would listen to stu- 
dents, listen to their 
griefs," she said. 'A lot of 
times I went beyond what 
was required. I was probably 
more patient than some teachers." 

In the Rome, Ga., apartment where 
Lightfoot now lives, the walls are lined with art- 
work created by Maryville College students 
who tried to repay the mentor in the registrar's 
office. 

A watercolor of Anderson Hall reminds her 
of an art student she "prodded, argued with, 
fussed at and encouraged" to graduate. It 
worked; Lightfoot watched her walk across the 
Commencement stage. 

The former registrar occasionally receives 
letters from former students. They are the rea- 
sons, she said, she wouldn't choose biology if 
she - or Miss Jones - had it to do all over again. 
"I made several friends, and I liked the aca- 
demic atmosphere, but I also learned a lot about 
human beings and relationships," she said. "I 
liked my job."

Templeton recognizes Maryviile for character and service 



"Intelligmce plus character - that is the goal 
of true education. " 

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

Mar}'ville College has once again been rec- 
ognized by the Templeton Foundation for lead- 
ership in the area of student character develop- 
ment. Two of the College's programs, the 
Freshman Curriculum and the Student Literaa- 
Corps are featured in a guidebook entitled The 
Templeton Guide: Colleges that Encourage 
Character Development, which was released 
nationwide in October. Designed for students, 
parents, and educators who believe that 
character matters, The Templeton 
Guide contains profiles of exemplar)' 
college programs in ten categories 
including First Year Programs and 
Volunteer Service Programs, two 
areas in which Maryviile College 
excels. 

Since its inception five years 
ago, the Student Literacy 
Corps has grown into one of 
the nation's most respected 
college-based literacy pro 
grams, according to Jen Serio of 
the Student Coalition for Action in Literacy 




Education. Serio said Mar\'ville's program is 
one of the few directed by students and that 
SCALE often uses the Marndlle College 
Student Literaq' Corps as a model tor other 
schools interested in developing their own liter- 
aq' initiatives. 

The Templeton Guide cited as exceptional 
three areas of the Student Literacy Corps — MC 
Families, the Blount Count}' Jail, and the 
Blount County Children's Home. The highest 
praise came in the summan,' of the profile: "At 
Mar}'ville College, graduates develop sound val- 
ues through outstanding examples of ser\'ice." 
In its description of the Freshman 
Curriculum, The Templeton Guide said: "By 
engaging students in application 
of academic skills to con- 
crete life situations, the 
program challenges students 
to take responsibility for 
their environment, their soci- 
ety, and themselves." The 
quote precisely describes what 
the College intended to achieve 
when it developed the current 
Freshman Curriculum in 1996, 
said Dr. Pegg}' Cowan, coordinator 
of the Maryviile College General 



Education Curriculum. In honoring the 
Freshman Curriculum, The Templeton Guide 
featured Mountain Challenge, Perspectives on 
the Individual, Perspectives on the 
Environment, and Perspectives on the 
American Communit)', noting that such cours- 
es "lay the foundation for a liberal arts educa- 
tion that supports Maryviile College students in 
developing informed ethical judgement, a com- 
mitment to service and global citizenship, and a 
sense ot responsibilin' for the common good." 

Though recognized in separate categories by 
the Templeton Foundation, the underlying goal 
of both programs is the same — to develop lead- 
ers for productive lives in a changing world, 
which is an overall goal for the College as well, 
and one for which the liberal arts education is 
ideally suited, according to President Gerald 
Gibson. 

"We are very proud of Maryviile College's 
work to help students develop the strong values 
that will serve them well beyond their college 
years, said Gibson. "Character development is a 
lifelong process, and we believe that colleges 
and universities have a very important and 
unique role to play. We are delighted to be 
among the institutions profiled in The 
Templeton Guide" said Gibson.

Unlike many grants. Tide III proposals allow 
colleges and universities to shape the nature of 
the project - the work plan - to meet the great- 
est needs of the campus, said Karen Wentz, 
Mar}'ville College's Tide III Project Director. 

"In the proposal, we described the College's 
strengths, weaknesses and problems," Wentz 
explained. "And we described the College's 
strategic plans, setting forth our goals and 
objectives. The activit}' in the grant is the solu- 
tion to fulfill aspects of those goals." 

The MC2000 Plan, a strategic plan 
approved by the College's board of directors in 
1993, specifically calls for the establishment of 
a state-ot-the-art instructional technolog}' cen- 
ter and aims for the development of "instruc- 
tional use of technolog}' that contributes signif- 
icantly to the educational experience of stu- 
dents." 

Title III grant handing will definitely help 
meet that goal, Gibson said. 



Southeast is MC Choir

ALUMNI GIVING 



Alumni called upon to help reach 50-percent goal 



The Executive Board ot the Marn'ille 
College Alumni Association and the 
College's Office of 
Advancement are 
working together 
to help reach the 
50-percent alumni 
participation goal 
by the end of this 
fiscal year (May 3 1 , 
2000). 

In 1998, the 
Alumni Board set a 
goal of 50-percent 
alumni participa- 
tion by the year 



2000. In tracking that goal, 
a 45-percent participation 




ii^i 4 



Members of the 1999-2000 Phonathon Team include (front 
row) Mark Rogers '01, Erica Hayes '01; (back row) Jennifer 
Lowe '03, Elisha Giles '01, Krista Smith '02, Erin Verhofstadt 
'02, Christina Fisher '03 and Amanda McMaster '03. 



Board members set 
goal in fiscal year 
1998-99, and 
alumni came 

through with a 
record-breaking 46 
percent of alumni 
making a gift to 
Maryville College. 
(The national aver- 
age of alumni par- 
ticipation among 
peer institutions is 
32 percent.) 

"There is much 
work to be done," 



said Ned Willatd, directot of annual giving. 
"In order to reach levels that tival presti- 
gious institutions, we need to increase the 
support received from alumni. " 

According to Willard, foundations and 
rankings, like those found in U.S. News 
and World Report, consider the financial 
support of alumni as a critical indicator of 
"customer satisfaction" among its gradu- 
ates. 

Phonathon callers (all MC students) ate 
working year-round to contact all alumni 
and ask them for a gift. Willard asked 
alumni to remember the 50-percent par- 
ticipation goal when on the phone with 
student callers. 



Three Reasons to Establish Your Own Endowment 



There are manv reasons you should consider 
establishing your own endowment at Maryville 
College. Here are rhree: 

/. Unending Annual Gifts 

As a friend of Maryville College, you prob- 
ably make annual gifts to suppott the College 
and, quite possibly, gain great personal satisfac- 
tion from doing so. Our endowment program 
allows you to make certain that yout annual 
gifts continue in perpetuity after you are gone. 
The rule of thumb to "lock in" your annual gift 
is to give an amount equal to 20 times the 
annual gift. For example, a bequest of $20,000 
to the general college endowment would gener- 
ate an annual gift of at least $1,000 a year and 
allow a portion to be reinvestment for future 
inflation. 

Endowment funds ate basically investment 
funds that pteserve principal and make pay- 
ments (or gifts) to the College from the earn- 
ings. Assets are commingled lor the sake of sim- 
plicity and economies of scale, but the College 
maintains records of the individual endowment 
funds. After you are gone, your endowment 
would take your place in providing annual sup- 
port for the College. And this could continue 
indefinitely. 

2. A Lasting Legacy 

This is one of the most powerful reasons to 

FOCUS Autumn 1999 14 



establish an endowment. The ongoing nature of 
these funds provides an unending way to not 
only support Maryville College, but to remind 
family and friends of one's deeply held values 
and commitments. 

Grandchildren, great-grandchildren and fur- 
ther generations will encounter their own her- 
itage as they see "their" endowment at work. It 
you want to build a lasting legaq' to benefit the 
College and inspire people for years to come, 
establish your own endowment. 

3. Financial Stability 

MarjTille College derives financial strength 
from its endowment funds. Just knowing that 
we can count on a stream of endowment 
income permits us to make better financial pro- 
jections and to plan tor the future more confi- 
dently. 

Also, income from endowments allows the 
College to do some things it might not other- 
wise be able to do. One donor established an 
endowment to provide students with scholai- 
ships for overseas study. Another donor is estab- 
lishing an endowment to provide scholatships 
for students who will do service in the area of 
literacy. 

Another point: An organization with strong 
endowment assets tends to dtaw recognition 
and prestige as well as support ftom other 
donors. 



Several Possibilities 

You can establish your endowment in sever- 
al ways. You could do it all at once by making a 
major gift of cash ot marketable assets. You 
could also start now with a modest amount and 
add to your endowment later. Or, you could 
make all the arrangements now to establish 
your endowment in the future. You can do this 
through a bequest in yout will or othet planned 
gift such a charitable gift annuity, insurance 
policy or even the use of a charitable trust. 
Those who establish endowments through their 
estate plans are eligible for membership in the 
Society of 1819. 

You can establish your endowment for a 
variet)' of purposes. For example, a named 
scholarship fund can be established for 
$25,000. Endowing a particular building on 
campus or providing for faculty development 
are other options. 

Many of our alumni and friends have dis- 
covered that endowment building is one of the 
most satisfying means of supporting Maryville 
College. If you want to learn more about this 
program and how you can participate, contact

Donors Answering Call To Meet Kresge Challenge 



Since the Kresge Foundation of Troy, Mich., 
issued a $500,000 grant in early July, challeng- 
ing Maryville College to raise the remaining 
fiinds needed to complete the student center 




Jean and Harold Lambert were recognized by Maryville College President Dr. 
Gerald W. Gibson, left, during the 1999 Founder's Day Banquet. The 
Lamberts have pledged $1 million to the Bartlett Hall Student Center Projea. 



project by Aug. 1, 2000, response has been 
enthusiastic and meaningful. 

The College has received nearly $1,100,000 
in gifts and pledges in support of this challenge, 
and is actively pursuing the remaining 
$315,000 needed to meet the challenge and fin- 
ish the project. 

"The commitment by the Kresge 
Foundation is a timely one, and I truly believe 
it has helped to spark people who have been 
thinking about ways to help the College," said 
Anna Graham, Director of the MC2000 
Campaign. "To be under the half-million-dollar 
mark for this project is exciting. So many peo- 
ple have renewed their commitment and enthu- 
siasm for this special place - at this special time 
in the history of the institution." 



Jean and Harold Lambert '50 of Marvville 
are a perfect example ot Graham's sentiment. In 
response to the Kresge Challenge, they pledged 
$500,000 toward the effort in October. The gift 
followed a gift of $500,000 
made eadier in the year. 

Originally, the Lamberts 
intended tor their gifts to be 
anonymous but had a 
change of heart when 
requested by the College to 
share their storj-. 

"We thought it might 
inspire others to make a con- 
tribution, just as we were 
inspired," Harold said. 
"We're willing to do all we 
can to help make the new 
student center a reality. 
"We are so proud of the school and what it 
means to Maryville. The community would 
really be lost without Maryville College," he 
added. 

Vince and Cindy Evans, parents of Brandon 
Evans '01, were inspired to make a gift to 
Maryville College after a series of events 
prompted them to attend the Atlanta campaign 
event at the home of Nancy Gamble Bromley 
73. 

"Vince and I were driving back to 
Conyers [Ga.] after a football 
game (Brandon is a member of 
the Fighting Scots football 
team), and we were talking about ■-, 
how great it would be if we could 
make a gift to the MC2000 Campaign, 



Cindy said. "We put it into the back ot our 
minds until we received an invitation to the 
Atlanta event and decided we wanted to hear 
more." 

Just a few days before the Atlanta event, fire 
destroyed Fayerweather Flail. 

"This heightened our awareness of the need 
to take action and make a gift," Cindy 
explained. "And on the way to the event, as we 
were thinking about how to budget tor a gift, 
we remembered some stock we had not includ- 
ed in our long-term financial planning. We 
decided to make the gift with that. It's been a 
very attractive option tor us." 

Giving appreciated stock is a convenient way 
to make a gift to the College, according to 
Graham. 

"We're seeing more and more donors make 

gifts to the Campaign and in support of the 

Kresge Challenge through gifts of stock,"

Graham said. 

"We're able to give something back - not just 
the tuition we pay - and not just in support of 
this building but also in support ot the whole 
College - facult}', staff, students - who have 
helped make Mary\'ille a good place tor 
Brandon," Cindy said. 

Christine "Teenie" Havworth, mother of 
Deborah Hayworth '81 and member of the 
MC Board of Directors, is an avid promoter of 
all things Mar)'ville College. And even though 
she did not attend MC, her enthusiasm for the 
College never dwindles. 

"I always get the biggest kick when I'm back 
on 'my' campus, " Hav'worth explained. "I real- 
ly think this excitement I feel has its origins in 
the fact that I didn't attend a liberal arts college. 
It's left a big hole in my life, especially when I 
look at what it's meant to our children - all of 
whom attended liberal arts colleges. 

"The sense of community that prevails at 
these schools is immense," Haworth added, 
"and they've taken it into their adult lives as well 
- as good citizens and parents."

For Mary Swain Wood '29, there was never 
any question that she would attend a liberal arts 
college. 

"In my family it was understood that first 
you went to a small, private liberal arts college, 
and then you could go on to an\'where else you 
wanted." 

The year Wood entered college was a provi- 
dential one for MC. 

"Centre (in Danville, Ky) was the college for 
my grandfather, my father, my brother and my 
brother's son. The year I entered college. Centre 
was merging with the women's college down the 
road and weren't accepting any other women as 
freshmen. So the family looked for the nearest 
Presbyterian school." 

The nearest Presbyterian school just hap- 
pened to be Mar)'ville College. 

She had little idea of what college was like. 
Her hometown, 30 miles outside of Louisville 
Ky., had a little high school with no laborator)' 



town. 1 temember walking to the Quaker 
church (now St. Andrew's Episcopal Church) 
for Sunday services because it was the longest 
walk back with our beaus." 

When the depression hit in 1929, Wood's 
family was unable to send her back for her sen- 
ior year, so she got a job teaching elementary 
school in Kentuck)'. Eventually, she was recruit- 
ed by the Scott Foresman Publishing Company 
as a reading consultant for the state of Texas. 
Her job: to promote a new line of reading mate- 
rials, starring now familiar characters Dick and 
Jane. 

"Every first grader in the state of Texas 
thought I was Dick and Jane's mother," she 
said. 

When Wood heard about the MC2000 
Campaign, the Fayerweather fire and the Kresge 
Challenge, she decided to make a gift in addi- 
tion to her regular gifts to the Annual Fund. 

"I'm so happy about MC today," she said. 
"The growth and improvement thrills me. You 
know the Presb)^erian Church is known for 
believing in education, and I believe MC has 
successfully met that goal. 

"I was a student when Dr. Wilson was presi- 
dent, and I never shook hands with him," 
Wood added. "I feel like if I were a student 
today. Dr. Gibson would know me."

Center for Campus Ministry nears 
completion, fund-raising goals 




Workers paid close attention to detail when it came to restoring the Center for Campus Ministry. A metal roof 
and white "dimples" across the top of the building would have been visible features of the building in 1888. 



by Anna Graham, CFRE, MC2000 Campaign 
Director 

As the students returned to campus for the 
fall semester, they found workers completing 
the restoration of the Center for Campus 
Ministry (CCM). 

It's easy to see why this project has been par- 
ticularly meaningful to Andy McCall, project 
manager and Maryville College's director of 
physical plant. The restoration of a building 
President Gerald Gibson has called "an archi- 
tectural jewel in the center of our campus" has 
been a labor of love. 

When McCall talks about the project, he's 
careful to stress that this has been a restoration 
- not a renovation. 

He and his team paid close attention to 
detail when it came to replacing the roof plas- 
ter and woodwork. "Walls were re-plastered 
rather than replaced with sheet rock. A large 
part of the wood used for replacing missing or 
damaged detailed pieces came from the College 
Woods. 

"About 10 years ago we cut down a few dead 
oak trees, and we saved the wood," McCall 
explained. "It was too valuable to throw out, 
and I'm glad we didn't." 

The metal roof is a near replica of the origi- 



nal one. The white "dimples" across the top of 
the root were discovered in an old photograph 
of the building. When the roofers took the 
existing roof off McCall explained, they found 
what they believe is the original metal roof (that 
had been covered with tar) with some of the 
bases of the white dimples remaining. 

"[Roofing company] Baird and Wilson was 
able to reproduce the original pattern of the 
roof and spacing of the dimples, " the project 



manager said. 

The sole original door remains as the door to 
the office of support staff member Rachel 
Moore '67 and has been reproduced lor the 
entrances to the building. 

Dr. Chad Berry, assistant professor of histo- 
ry and member of the Maryville City Historic 
Zoning Commission, lound this attention to 
detail particularly appealing. 

"The detail of the small squares ot glass, 
based on rhis original door, really becomes a 
motif lor the whole building, " he said. 

The stained glass borders on the windows 
throughout the building continue this theme, 
and memorialize or honor individual donors. 
They were designed and crafted by Catherine 
Carter-Stiles '81. 

The Reverend Stephen Nickle, chaplain and 
director of volunteer services, said he is pleased 
with the results. 

"It's a warm and hospitable space that invites 
people to come in and seek nourishment," the 
chaplain said. "If there were a day when all the 
staff was home in bed with the fiu, the open 
doors of this place would continue to draw peo- 
ple into a community. ' 

According to McCall, the building is 
equipped with all safet)', ADA, electric and fire 
requirements. 

"It should be a good building for a long 
time," he said. 

Of the $700,000 needed to restore the 
building, $80,000 remains to complete the 
fundraising. For more information, please con- 
tact MC2000 Campaign Director Anna B. 
Graham at 865/981-8200. 




Inside the CCM, walls were re-piaitered. Wood work that was missing or damaged by water leaks was 
replaced by oak trees salvaged from the College Woods.

MC2000 CAMPAIGN 



ensures Gamble legacy lives on 



by Lyn French, Director of Gift PLvining 

The following article is reprinted from the Fall 
1999 edition of MC Futures, the planned giving 
newsletter for friends and alumni of Maryville 




Margaret Gamble Purcell 



Among the tamily names that punctuate the 
chronicles of Mar)'ville College is that of 
Gamble. There have been 
Gamble board members, 
Gamble benefactors and 
Gamble students galore. 
There is even a Gamble 
Hall, named after Joe 
Gamble who was a stu- 
dent, board chairman and 
benefactor. 

Far away in Calitornia, 
Margaret Gamble Purcell 
grew up an only child, 
learning the lore of 
Maryville College, where 
her grandfather, mother 
and father were all stu- 
dents - as well as scores of cousins, nieces and 
nephews - many of them twice removed. Other 
strands of Margaret's family were MC alumni as 
well, for example, her grandfather. Scales 
Amerine, who later owned the mill and the gen- 
eral store in Maryville. 

Margaret's mother, Eva Amerine Gamble 
1899, entered Mar^'ville Preparatory School at 
the tender age of 12. It even required a special 
board vote to admit a child so young. When Eva 
graduated she was - and remains - the youngest 
student to graduate from the Preparatory School. 
This was in 1902 - a time when Fayerweather 
Hall, Harriett Hall, and Willard House were 
brand new buildings on campus and Samuel 
Tyndale Wilson had recendy assumed the college 
presidency. 

FOCUS Autumn 1999 18 



Margaret's father, Sidney Gamble, left 
Mar)'ville College that same year. You might 
assume her parents had met at Maryville College, 
but no; they met as children in the school play- 
ground for a game of mumblet)'peg. 

"It was always understood, " Margaret said of 
her parents, "that they would one day marry." 

Sadly, however, Eva Gamble was widowed in 
1915. She developed a furnirure business to sup- 
port her young family and, in her 
volunteer work, eventually built a 
national reputation as a leader 
among Chrisrian women. She was 
a renowned public speaker and 
the founder and president of a 
statewide Christian women's asso- 
ciation in California. 

In 1920, at the age of 10, 
Margaret first traveled by train 
across country to Maryville, 
Tenn., for a Gamble tamily 
reunion. 

"A five-generation photograph 
was taken at the time," she 
recalled. 

Because her mother held it important to 
maintain family ties, Margaret traveled across 
country to Maryville every few years. At a 
reunion attended by more than 100 family mem- 
bers, she inquired of her Grandmother Gamble, 
"Are these people really all my relatives?" 

Her grandmother responded, "Oh, Honey, 
that's just a few!" Many of them were Mar}^^^ 
College alumni. 

Margaret did not go to Maryville College but 
inherited a love of learning. She earned her bach- 
elor's degree at San Jose State University and a 
master's of art degree (in music education) at 
Universit)' of Southern California and became an 
educator and administrator in California schools. 
Yet her scholarship was rooted in East Tennessee. 
She wrote her thesis on the folklore and music of 



Cade's Cove. 

Margaret and her mother became reconnect- 
ed with Maryville College in 1968 when they 
were contacted by then-president Dr. Joseph 
Copeland and Board Chairman, Joe Gamble 
'26, a relative. They were inspired by the 
College's dedication to liberal arts and its 
Christian values. 

Even after her mother's death, Margaret's rela- 
tionship with the College continued. In 1992, 
she decided to make a provision in her living 
trust, leaving the bulk of her estate to Maryville 
College to establish the Margaret Gamble Purcell 
Chair of English. Her mother had requested that 
she leave the biJk of her estate to a Christian 
organization. 

In a letter to then Interim President, Dr. Mark 
Ebersole, Margaret wrote: "This has taken a great 
deal of thought and many prayers. A great load 
has been lifted from my shoulders and I am sure 
my mother would be pleased with our decision." 

But her philanthropy was not over. This 
January she established a $400,000 charitable 
gift annuity to benefit the College, the residuary 
of which will support the chair in English. This 
generous gift not only provides for the future of 
the College, but also provides Margaret a sub- 
stantial income tax deduction and a generous 
income tor life. 

Giving to her parents' alma mater felt so grat- 
ifying that Margaret decided to make yet anoth- 
er gift. Inspired by the MC2000 Campaign and 
concerned for the loss of Fayerweather Hall, she 
recently donated appreciated stock valued at 
$50,000 for the new Student Center. 

"I am delighted," she said, "to be able to help 
in this way." 

Margaret recendy had dinner with Maryville 
College President Dr. Gerald Gibson and his 
wife Rachel and pronounced the College "in 
good hands." 

The Gamble name has been an illustrious 
part of the Maryville College chronicles in the 
1 9th and 20th centuries. Margaret Gamble 
Purcell's gifts, as well as those from other 
Gambles, will ensure that the name remains an 
illustrious part of Maryville College for a long 
succession of generations in the new millennium.

LETTER FROM THE ALUMNI PRESIDENT 




Tim Topham '80, MCAA President 



W' ere sharing a lot ot information in these pages of 
FOCUS. I hope it paints tor you a good picture of 
things happening on campus. 
But with a college ot 1,001 students, 100 or so courses, two 
building projects underway, 10 athletic teams, a calendar full of 
fine arts events, and many club and organization-sponsored 
activities, it's difficult to paint a detailed picture - even in 52 
pages. 

As the Maryville College Alumni Association (MCAA) pres- 
ident, I'm happy to report that the alumni presence on campus 
is dynamic, too - just as it is represented on the cover of this 
autumn's FOCUS. 

New members to the Association's Executive Board are list- 
ed on page 13. A complete listing of the 
Board is on page 51. We met Sept. 10 and 
1 1 to discuss the work of the Association. 
It was a productive time. As in every meet- 
ing. Board members receive from the pres- 
ident an update on the present state of the 
College, and staff advisots share particular 
details about their respective departments: 
admissions, alumni programming, devel- 
opment, public relations, student develop- 
ment. And while there's no question about 
the positive direction in which Marwille is 
moving, the Executive Board is also 
apprised ot the areas in which the College 
needs help - help from its alumni - to keep 
the momentum going. 

If you read this column regularly, you've read some of my 
suggestions for how alumni can get involved. You've tead about 
the importance of building a new student center, boosting 
alumni participation, identifying prospective students for the 
College, adding new members to the VISA Affinity Program, 
planning (and attending) outreach events. I still stand beside 
those "causes, " and I hope other alumni do, as well. I'd like to 
share additions and updates, as they came trom the September 
meeting. 

Just as Maryville College grows, so does its needs. 
• The VISA Affinit}' Program. Several years ago Mar\'\'ille 
College established the VISA Affinity Card. The number of 
card carriers varied, as businesses joined and left the program. 
In recent years, carriers numbered about 300, but the Executive 
Board voted to have 200 new participants before Dec. 31, 
2000. 

With each putchase made on an affinity card, the 
Association receives a percentage of the purchase. And, as 
you've likely read before, the Association purchases gifts for stu- 
dents (see freshman T-shirt on opposite page) and sponsors 
alumni-student events with the money earned. 

I'm happy to report that First Tennessee Bank has decided to 



re-market the VISA Affinity Card, which should make it easier 
tor alumni to apply Applications should be mailed this winter. 

• The Milestone Traditions School Ring program. Alumni 
trom reunion classes may have received a brochure in the mail 
this summer about the official ring now being offered to stu- 
dents who earn a minimum of 59 credit hours. 

The MCAA took this program over last yeat, because Board 
members believed that a school ring could come to represent a 
tradition at Marwille College. And who better promotes and 
keeps traditions than alumni? 

Through an agreement with ring manufacturer Milestone 
Traditions, the MCAA receives a small amount ot money for 
each ring purchased. The MCAA has decided to use that 
money for a special ring ceremony, during which juniors and 
seniors will be presented the ring by President Gibson. 

Martha Bess Ellis DeWitt '64 chaired a committee of 
alumni and students to plan the first ting ceremony. It was 
scheduled tor Dec. 1 in the Proffitt Dining Room. 

• The Career Services Task Force. Connecting alumni with 
students who need job experience has been an important issue 
of the Executive Board for some time. This summer, a seven- 
member committee of faculty, staff, students and alumni was 
formed to discuss students' internship and job placement needs 
and ways in which alumni can meet those needs. The last few 
months have been a great learning experience for everyone 
involved; we hope the next few months will be very productive. 

Along those lines, the MCAA co-sponsored the annual 
Senior Luncheon with the College's Career Services Office. 
During the luncheon program, Austin "Cole" Piper '68, Ann 
Little Rigell '69 and Wil Lukens '91 gave students advice for 
life after Maryville College. 

Although juniors and seniors may be too buried in exams, 
labs and Senior Thesis projects to realize it, there is life - for 
many alumni, long and fulfilling life - after Maryville College. 

Alumni on the cover of this FOCUS illustrate that. D. H. 
Briggs '19 earned doctoral degrees at the University of North 
Carolina and returned to teach psychology at MC for almost 
30 years. George Callahan '20 went to medical school after 
MC and became a doctor. He died in 1995 at the ripe old age 
of 94. Ethel Burchfiel '19 (the woman in the letter sweater) 
married Finis Cooper '18, and before their deaths in 1984 and 
1990, they set up a trust fiand for Maryville College. That trust 
fund, now maintained by daughter Maggie Cooper, has pro- 
vided funds for (among many other things) the renovation of 
the physical education building. The building was renamed the 
Cooper Athletic Center in 1993. From the trust fund. Miss 
Cooper has also given money for the kitchen area in the new 
Bartlett Hall Student Center. 

If any of those early century students were living today, I'm 
sure they would applaud the efforts of the MCAA to ensure 
that Maryville remains "for students for centuries."

What^s key in taking a picture of the largest freshman 
class in Maryville Collegers history? 

"Location, location, location," according to Knoxville 
photographer Neil Crosby. 

For the fourth consecutive year, Crosby has pho- 
tographed the freshmen in their Alumni Association 
T-shirts. 

The side entrance of Thaw Hall is perfect for the 
shot, he said. 

"The steps are just the right height, the 
columns are nice in the picture and the sun is 
angled out of the way by 
the size of the build' 
ing," he said. "The green grass in 
front really shows off the beauty of the setting." 
Technically, Crosby uses a medium format camera that produces 
a negative roughly four times larger than a 35 mm negative. Standing no more than 
20 yards from his 300+ subjects and using a standard 90 mm lens, Crosby said he 
is able to get a "true" picture, a proportionate picture. 

He lines students up by height, starting with those over 6 foot. From there, 
every step is designated in inch increments: one step for those who stand 5- 
foot-11; another for those who stand 5-foot-IO and so on. The shortest stu- 
dents are asked to kneel or sit. 

"It's the largest group I shoot," Crosby said. "But we can get it done in 30 
minutes - largely because of that great location. Those steps are life savers." 

Not only does the Class of 2003 total more than 300 students, but the College reported the 
largest student body ever - it's 1 ,00 1 strong.
