Dear Fellow Alumni:
Your Ahiinni Bulletin is reaching you after Homecoming this \ear clue to the fact that October 18
was so early in the year that we could not get the Bulletin to you before that time.
Homecoming weekend was a very full and satisfying one. Thursday evening man\ Alumni attended
the Industrial Appreciation Banquet for Area businessmen and their wives at which Mr. Frank .\Iagee, Presi-
dent of the Aluminum Company of America, made the keynote address. Miss Ware, as usual, prepared us
a very delightful meal. Friday evening brought something new to the campus in the way of musical
entertainment. A compan\- from Broadway presented the musical satire "Candide." It was also the first
"standing room only" in the Artist Series history.
Saturday, at the Founders Day Ceremonies, Mr. Magee was awarded an LL.D. degree and was wel-
comed as a new Alumnus by your president. Mr. Magee was great in his praise of the contribution Mary-
ville College has made to the Aluminum Company of America as well as to the nation and the world. This
was followed by an Alumni Luncheon attended by fifty-five persons, a soccer game between .Mar\ville and
King College, an organ recital, a parade, a swimming and diving exhibition and was climaxed by the annual
barbecue at which more than five Inmdred and fifty lunches were served. Ernie (Caldwell, Ernie Lowe and
the many others who worked so faitlifully in preparing and serving the meal deserve tiie praise of all of us.
Oh yes — there was a football game but tlie Alumni Association takes no responsibilit\ For the score.
We .\iumni can contribute much to our Alma Mater and shoidd do so at every opportunity. The
best aiKertising the (^olli-ge can get is through the enthusiastic recommendation of an Alunmus. Let us
begin now to help send more freshmen to the Hill next fall. The new dormitory will be finished and
there will be room for many more students.
I hope you presidents of reunion classes won't wait too long to begin making plans for the biggest
Commencement ever: the one in Ma\', 1959.

DEAR FELLOW ALUMNI:
1. A FACULTY RETREAT was a new event in the open-
ing week of the college year. For most of two days between
seventy-five and a hundred members of the faculty and staff
were at Laurel Lake, in the mountains fifteen miles from
Maryville. Long range and short range plans were discussed
and made. It was adjudged a valuable addition to our pro-
gram and probably will be repeated in some form next year.
2. THE FOUNDERS AND HOMECOMING DAY events
on October 18, reported in more detail elsewhere in this issue,
were both pleasant and significant. The weather was perfect.
The Founders Day Convocation emphasized Maryville College
in the business world and the honorary degree of Doctor of
Laws was conferred upon Frank L. Magee of Pittsburgh,
Pennsylvania, President of Aluminum Company of America
( ALCOA ) . Two days before, there had been held a com-
munity "Industry Appreciation Dinner" in our College Dining
Hall with 650 present and Mr. Magee as the speaker. On
Saturday afternoon we had one of the largest Homecoming
crowds of alumni of recent years, and the students' Home-
coming parade was above average in its floats and community-
3. THE DIRECTORS' FALL MEETING on October
17-18 was well attended and there were some important
actions, of which probably the most far-reaching had to do
with our Development Program. I am writing a brief article
about that program for another page. A comprehensive plan
and organization have been effected and the Directors have
initiated a vigorous long-term effort in which alumni will be
asked to take an important part. You will be hearing more
4. LOSSES BY DEATH in our official family during 1958
have been heavy. Two of these have been in the Board of
Directors. Judge Samuel O. Houston, an alumnus of the Class
of 1898, a Director since 1909 and Chairman of the Board
from 1932 to 1953, died on August 29. Rev. Dr. Stuart Nye
Hutchison of Pittsburgh, a Director since 1943, died April 5.
Bonnie Hudson Brown, a member of our Biology faculty since
1929, fell ill of a brain tumor in August and died September
12. We are grateful for their services, saddened by their
going, and under necessity of increasing our commitment and
endeavors to compensate in some measure for our loss of them.
5. THREE NEW DIRECTORS were elected by the
Synod of Mid-South in June: R. Arnold Kramer, Maryville
College '40, Knoxville Attorney; Rev. Paul Floyd Jones, Pastor
of Graystone Presbyterian Church, Knoxville; and Rev. Robert
Barr Stewart, Pastor of Second Presbyterian Church, Chatta-
nooga. All three were present at the Fall Meeting. In June
also the Synod elected as Honorary Directors three Directors
in the Class of 1958 whose terms had expired and who had
reached the retirement age of seventy specified in the By-
Laws: James L. Getaz, New York; Albert D. Huddleston,
Orniond Beach, Florida; and Roy E. Vale, Indianapolis. Honor-
ary Directors are eligible to serve in all ways that Directors
serve except that they are not eligible to vote or hold office in
the Board. To these we are grateful and to those who are
new we offer a hearty welcome "to take part in this service
6. THE SYNOD OF MID-SOUTH, which elects our Di-
rectors and to which we report, is now an "integrated" synod.
Heretofore, it has in fact been a "white synod," since its pres-
byteries and congregations had only white members. In June
it officially united with Blue Ridge Synod, whose presbyteries
and churches were composed of Negro members; and also
accepted the former United Presbyterian Presbytery of Ten-
nessee, whose members were for the most part of the Negro
race. This merger, to which Maryville College has an indirect
relationship, represents what we at the college count a sig-
nificant advance in the life of our Church in the South.
7. THE NEW WOMEN'S DORMITORY is now well
along in construction as will be noted on another page. It
was delayed by a general strike in the summer but we are
still hoping to move into it before Commencement.
8. REHABILITATION OF OLD DORMITORIES made
striking progress in the interior remodeling of Carnegie, as
you will find reported on the front cover and in these pages.
Work in Memorial is scheduled to begin as soon as we move
into the new dormitory, and in Pearsons immediately after
Commencement. The cost for renewing these three older
buildings will total something like $275,000, of which all but
$50,000 is being secured through a long-term loan from the
U. S. Housing and Home Finance Agency. All of this is part
of the Development Program.
9. ATTENTION IS CALLED to an article in this issue
by Alumni Executive Secretary James W. Hampton concerning
Maryville College graduates who received earned doctorates
between 1936 and 1956. His analysis and comparisons should
be gratifying to all who are interested in Maryville's scholastic
7 UK pir/nn.s o/ ncu laiilciui hull /nr imnifti. Idkin by Dr. Griffitts on October
As tlif iicc()nip;inying picture will show, the new women's
(lorinitory, on wliieli eonstruction began in early summer, is
now at full height even though far from complete. The
schcchile calls for occupancy in the middle or late spring,
to allow the start on rehabilitation work in Memorial referred
to by President Lloyd on his page.
Even in its skeleton form the building is attracting con-
siderable attention and promises to be not onl>' an exceed-
ingly solid structure of concrete, steel, brick, and glass, but
also one of great artistic beauty. And its location is unsur-
passed, on high ground with open views of the Great Smoky
Mountains on one side and of the Tennessee Valley and
distant Cumberland Mountains on the other.
There will be a recreation and utility basement; a ground
floor of lobby, offices, and apartments for housemother and
guests; and second and third floors of rooms with space for
Interior — the "netc Carnef^ic."
while the big news is the story of the final appearance
on campus of the long-awaited residence hall for women,
the story of Carnegie Hall is also of far-reaching significance.
The renovation and remotleling of this dormitor\. which cost
approximately $14(),()()0, has resulted in what is practically a
new building. The work was completed last summer in time
for the opening of college by B. F. Churchill of Kno.wille.
I'lans and specifications were prepared by Barber and
Mc.Murry, architects, of Knoxville.
Many major changes were made, including new steel stair-
ways, new hardwood floors in all rooms and the fourth floor
hall, new doors throughout the building with tran.soms elimi-
nated, new plumbing, rebuilt bathrooms with marble partitions
and tile baths, alumuuun window frames in fourth floor nmms,
a clothes closet for each person, alteration in the size of
many ri«)ms, additional lounge space on the groimd and
first floors with a total loss of twenty-three beds, bringing the
student capacity ilown to one hundred and ninety-four men.
elevator shaft fire doors, repair and new painting throughout.
New furniture finally arri\etl for the lobby and lounge
and on Sunday, No\fmber 2. there was an Oix-n House which
was attended by between four and five hundred persons.
Needless to say, there has been a tremendous improvement
in morale among the Carnegie men this year. In all respects,
the ilormitor>- is just about the etjuiNalent of a new dormi-
tory. As the new residence hall for women becomes available
in the spring or whenever the ilate may be. if is planned to
turn Memorial over for u.se by men students, thus providing
an all-around increase in living quarters which will make
po.ssible a substantial increase in enrollment.
ACHIEVEMENT IN EXCELLENCE
Tlie remurkable record of Manjville College in the production
of Doctorates in the Sciences, Arts, and Humanities for
the years 1936-1956.
James W. Hampton
Executive Secretary, Maryville College Alumni Association;
editor from 1949-1953 the Good Housekeeping Report
on Small Colleges; contrdnttor to national magazines and
editor of The Small College Annual.
In 1948, a book on doctorate-level training called The
Baccalaureate Origins of Science Doctorates Awarded in the
United States, 1936-1945, was published. It showed clearly
that the great preponderance of scientists in America origi-
nated in the small colleges of our nation. Some years later
(1945), a second study on the same subject but adding a
fifteen-year span to the original period made its appearance.
In 19.56, a third book, including this time the Arts, Humani-
ties, and Social Sciences, doctoral fields not covered in the
previous studies, was published, and recently, the most com-
prehensive of the four-volume series. Doctorate Production
in United States Universities, 1936-1956, with Baccalaureate
Origins of Doctorates in Sciences, Arts, and Humanities, ap-
peared. Published by the National Academy of Sciences and
the National Research Council, this important document com-
piled as were the previous studies by the Office of Scientific
Personnel under the direction of Dr. M. H. Trytten, combines
all doctorate fields into a single volume and covers a span of
As an alumnus of Maryville College, you are justified in
wondering how your Alma Mater stacks up in a comprehensive
study like this. Has Maryville produced a fair share of Ph.D.'s
in the various doctorate fields — the Sciences, Arts, and
Humanities — or does the College on the Hill have to take
a back seat in comparison with other institutions of higher
Prepare yourself for a pleasant shock: a shock that ouglit
to make your spine tingle with pride. For Maryville not only
holds her own with the best of the small college field — she
outstrips most of them, especially the church-related colleges
within the Maryville enrollment limitation.
Let's start right here at home and see how your Alma
Mater compares in doctorate production with other colleges
in Tennessee. Note, if you will, how evenly divided the
doctorates are in the four fields, a factor which seems to
indicate quite clearly that Maryville is indeed a College of
Arts and Sciences. Here are ten institutions of higher learn-
ing in Tennessee, with their respective doctorate productions;

In other words, Maryville tops every institution of higher
learning in the state except, of course, Vanderbilt University
( 1957 enrollment, 3,437 ) and the University of Tennessee
(1957 enrollment, 13,612)! Actually, the Maryville total is
nearly double that of the nearest competitor in the small
So much for Tennessee. How does Maryville fare in
comparison with some of her sister colleges in the Presby-
terian fold — nationally? Again, you are in for something of
a shock — a pleasant one. Only Wooster and Lafayette out-
rank Maryville, the former with 226 and Lafayette with 155.
Enrollment in 19.57 at these colleges was 1,134 and 1,616,
respectively. Of the other Presbyterian colleges, twenty-seven
had fifty or less in the total doctorate column! Maryville and
Occident:d are tied with ninety each. Coe with 88, Park with
87, Monmouth with 86, and Muskingum with 83 are Mary-
ville's closest competitors. Which seems to indicate that
Maryville alumni can hold their heads up in any Presbyterian
company! Enrollment at Maryville in 1957 was 732, in case
you're interested in comparative enrollment figures.
So much for the Maryville rating against ( 1 ) home state
competition, and (2) Presbyterian institutions of higher learn-
ing. Now I'd like to get in some pretty stiff comparisons
nationally with outstanding small colleges of all denomina-
tions as well as those which are independent.
For a list which affords top calibre comparison, I shall
use the original Good Housekeeping list of recommended
small colleges which appeared in my 1949 report and was
considered by leading educators an excellent representative
list. This list was expanded in subsequent reports by action
of an Advisory Board consisting of leading American edu-
cators, but remained a solid basic list in all of the Annual
There were fifty of these colleges in the 1949 study. They
are listed below, with their 1957 enrollment and the total
doctorates in the 21 -year period of the Trytten report:
(W. Va.) 570
Central (Mo.).... 589
Grove City 1,284
Our Lady of
St. Lawrence ....
U. of the South
Of these fifty outstanding small colleges throughout the
nation, Maryville, in total actual doctorates, ranks sixteenth
with a total of ninety. Top third isn't bad, but it seems
fair to eliminate those with an enrollment of more than one
thousand, which cuts out Clark (163), Antioch (143),
Allegheny (1-12), Mope (120), BirmiriRham-Soiitlum (111),
Redlands (108), Furman (99), Gettysburg (97), Willamette
(96), ami Trinity (9-4), leaving only six eoUeges with an
enrollment of less than one tiiousand. of which Mary\ille
We eoukl stretch a point, in all fairness, and go a step
further, eliminating the men's colleges and the private coed
colleges and work Mary\ille up to first place as the top,
church-related, coeducational college in the entire group of
fifty, which is actually the case. But these three lists ought
to convince you of something you knew all along anyway:
that Maryville College is doing an outstanding job, one of
which you can be jiroud, one about which you can do some
talking. This is incontrovertible fact, not the vague, intan-
gible bombast of college promotional material! This is out-
standing achievement in excellence of which every alumnus
of Mary\ille should be aware.
Top small college in Tennessee in producing doctorates
in four major fields, among the leading three or four Presby-
terian church-related colleges regardless of size, and in the
upper five or six per cent among all church-related colleges
in the United States, within enrollment limitations: this is
your Alma Mater.
As Maryville embarks upon a major Development Pro-
gram outlined on another page in this Bulletin, we hope you
will take an active part in telling the Maryville Story — to
prospective students, to prospective donors, to all whose in-
terest is essential to the College. For this Story is well worth
Two faculty members returned to the campus with Ph.D.
degrees. Miss Walker, Associate Professor of History, was
on leave of absence last year doing graduate work at the
University of North Carolina and the University of Paris,
France. Her degree was granted by the University of North
Carolina in June 1958. The title of her dissertation is "Life
and Status of a Generation of French Women from 1150-
1200." Mr. Lynn, Associate Professor of Business Adminis-
tration, was awarded the degree of Doctor of Philosophy by
the University of Illinois, Urbana, and is returning to the
campus after an absence of two years. His dissertation is
entitled "Wholesaling Used Automobiles." Dr. Lynn is not
only teaching this year but he is also helping with the manage-
ment of Carnegie Hall. He and his wife (Naomi Burgos, '54)
and daughter, Mary Lou, are living in the right-hand comer
apartment in Carnegie.
Other faculty members returning after an absence from
the college are: Mr. Ainsworth, Political Science, who for the
past year has done graduate study at the University of
Lausanne, Switzerland; Miss Blair, English, who has been
doing graduate study at the University of Tennessee; and
Miss Crews, Music, who for the past year has done graduate
study at the Florida State University.
Continuing on leave is Miss Martin, Spanish and French,
who is studying at the University of Madrid, Spain.
Four other persons are absent from the College this fall.
Miss Craven, Drama and Speech, will be away on Sabbatical
Leave for the entire year studying at Yale University; Miss
Hunter, Dr. Lloyd's Secretary, following visits to Hawaii,
Philippines, and the Far Fast this summer, is spending six
months in India doing volimtary work under Dr. Dorothy Lee
I'erris ( '28 ) at the Frances Newton Hospital in Fer<JZepore;
Dr. and Mrs. Queener are on Sabbatical Leave during the
first semester and are located in London, England, where Dr.
Quccner is studying at Queen Mary's College, University of
London, and Mrs. (.)ueener is studying in the Department of
Ilealtli Kducalion, University of London.
There were several promotions among the faculty this
year: to Professor— Dr. Jackson (English), Dr. Buchanan
(Bible and Christian Education), Mr. Tolar ( Mathematic-s ) ;
to Associate Professor — Mr. Harter (Music), Dr. Walker
(History), Dr. Lynn (Business Administration); to Assistant
Professor — Mr. Kinsinger (Music), Mrs. McNiell (Social
Sciences and Special Studies), Mr. Cragan (Sociology), Mr.
Schoen (Music), Mr. Horst (Religion and Philosophy), Mrs
Kincaid ( Home Economics ) .
A number of faculty members were abroad this summer.
After completing his study in Switzerland, Mr. Ainsworth
returned to the United States via Holland and the Brussels
World's Fair. Others visiting in Europe were Mr. Bloy, Miss
Lightfoot, Dr. Lloyd, Mrs. McNiell, and Miss Davies which
was a part of her trip around the world. Another traveler,
to a far-away state, was Mrs. Kramer, who spent most of the
summer in Alaska with her daughter and family.
Several of last year's faculty engaged in further study this
summer. Mr. Bloy studied organ with Helmut W'alcha in
Frankfurt, Germany, and piano with Bruno Seidlhofer at the
International Academy, Mozarteum, Salzburg, Austria; .\Ir.
Cragan and Miss Moose were at the University of Tennessee;
Miss Guss studied at the Concordia Lutheran Theological
Seminary in St. Louis, Missouri; and Mr. Harter was at
Union Theological Seminary again.
Teaching this summer were Dr. Barker and Dr. Briggs
at Furman University, Dr. Griffitts at Birmingham-Southern,
and Mr. Howell at the University of Tennessee.
Weddings among the faculty included Mr. Collins who
married Marion Lois Dando on June 1 and Mr. Witherspoon
who married Mary Lee, '56, on June 21.
Additions to families are reported by the Beards, a little
girl, Caroline, born July 28; and the Tom Cragans, a boy by
the name of Dan, born August 4. Also, Dr. Buchanan is
reporting the birth of a granddaughter, Margaret LeNoir
Buchanan, born September II.
Several members of the faculty ha\e had articles and
choral works published during the past year. Mr. Collins
had "Superstitions and Belief Tales from Louisville, Kentucky,"
published; Reinholdt Publishing Company published a Chemi-
cal Encyclopedia in which Dr. Griffitts had an article on
Catalytic Poisons; Mr. Hampton's article, "Is Your Child Col-
lege Material?" appeared in The Rotarian for May 1958;
Harr>- Harter had a spiritual, "Koom bah-ya" and "One
Church, One Faith, One Lord" published in Jime 1958 b>-
Shawnee Press, Inc.; Dr. Hunter's "Keats' Idea of Beauty"
appeared in Tennessee Studies in English; Dr. L\nn had
an article in Business History Reiiew imder the title of "In-
stallment Credit Before 1870"; a series of articles on Soviet
Education by Dr. McClelland appeared in The Maryville-
Alcoa Daily Times this past summer; and Mr. Williams wrote
a c-ouple of articles for the Augvist 1958 }oumal of Proto-
MARYVILLE COLLEGE DEVELOPMENT
Raijtnond I. Braliams, Jr.
The Board of Directors at its Spring Meeting in 1956
voted "That the President and Chairman of the Directors
be authorized to appoint a committee, known as a Special
Long Range Planning Committee, to give special study to
the future development of the College." Of course, both short
and long range planning has always been part of the regular
on-going service of the Directors, the President, and the
Faculty and Staff; but this was to be special, intensive, and
Pursuant to this action, a special committee of thirteen
was appointed, composed of the President of the College as
Chairman, the Chairman of the Board, si.x: other Directors,
and five other faculty and staff members including the Dean.
This Special Long Range Planning Committee has met from
time to time during the past two years; as a whole committee
and also in four sub-committees dealing with: (1) Curricular
and E.xtra-Curricular Offerings and Program; (2) Faculty
and Staff; (3) Physical Facilities; (4) Relationships. A year
ago seventeen Faculty Study Committees were appointed by
the President; also alumni have provided useful information
and estimates through questionnaires sent out by the Long
Range Planning Committee, and have made valuable sugges-
tions. With the aid of the studies and suggestions of these
various groups, the Board of Directors has recently taken
a number of significant actions relating especially to additional
funds and clientele.
A Development Committee has been erected, consisting
of the Chairman of the Board, Joe C. Camble; the President
of the College, Ralph W. Lloyd; the following fund-raising
committee chairmen: David W. Proffitt (Capital Gifts Com-
mittee), Earl W. Blazer (Individual Current Gifts Commit-
tee), Rev. Dr. Francis W. Pritehard (Church Relations Com-
mittee), Howard F. Lamon, Jr. (Alumni Annual Fund),
Edwin J. Best (Foundations Committee), the chairman of
a Business and Corporation Committee, and a General Chair-
man not yet appointed.
Organized work is being inaugurated on the first stage
of a new long range financial program of which alumni as
well as others will be hearing more specifically from time to
time. All of this effort is related to the total purpose of
maintaining and increasing the greatness of Maryville College.
On September I, 19.58, Raymond L Brahams, Jr., began
service as Director of Development. At the same time through
a special arrangement, Mr. Milton L. Smith, on leave of
absence from Lake Forest College where he has achieved
distinction as Vice President for Development and Public
Relations, began to give about one fourth of his time during
the ne.xt year to Maryville College. They are leading in the
organization of the Development Program.
"Brick" Brahams, as he is generally known, is a graduate
of Maryville College in the Class of 1949, holds an M.A.
degree in history from the University of Colorado, served as
high school teacher and athletic coach in Phoenix, Arizona,
and for the past two years has been Director of Public
Relations at Whitworth College, Spokane, Washington.
"Brick" was an excellent student at Maryville and he and his
brother "Hap," who then lived in California, were star ath-
letes at Maryville. Alumni from those years will remember
"Brick's" high scores as, with his 6'-4," he played center on
the Nhiryvillc College basketball team. His wife was Ellen
Collins who graduated from Maryville in the Class of 1950.

Rev. Paul Floyd Jones, Pastor of the Graystone Presbyte-
rian Church, Kno.xville, Tennessee. He is a native of Ohio,
a graduate of Davidson College, North Carolina, and Union
Theological Seminary, Richmond, Virginia. He was a pastor
in Florida and New York before coming from North Pres-
byterian Church, New York City, to First Church, Elizabeth-
ton, Tennessee, in 1950, and to Graystone during the past
year. Two of his daughters have attended Maryville College
from which Patricia graduated in 1955. Rev. Dr. William
Robert Dawson, a graduate of Maryville College and Chair-
man of the Board of Directors from 1927 to 19.32, was the
founder of the Graystone Church and its pastor for a third
of a century. And Mr. Jones' immediate predecessor there
was Rev. James R. Smith, a graduate of Maryville College
and for several years Alumni and Public Relations Secretary
at the College.
R. Arnold Kramer, Kno.xville, Tennessee, is a practicing
attorney in the law firm of Kramer, Dye, McNabb, & Green-
wood, of which his father, Russell R. Kramer, is the senior
partner and with which his brother Jackson C. Kramer, '42,
also is associated. Arnold is a graduate of Maryville College
in the Class of 1940, and of the Law School of the University
of Michigan. As a college student he was a leading athlete
and debater. The family has long been prominent in the
Methodist Church. Arnold was the oldest among four sons
and a daughter in his parents' home, all five of whom gradu-
ated at Maryville College. He married a Maryville classmate,
Sara Lee Heliums, of Rotan, Te.xas.
Rev. Robert Barr Stewart, Pastor of Second Presbyterian
Church, Chattanooga, since the fall of 1956. He was born
in Wishaw, Scotland, took a teacher's degree in shorthand
in Scotland and a Royal Society of Arts degree in accounting
in London, and for some time did sports and other news-
paper reporting in London. He then came to this country,
decided to take a liberal arts college course, graduated at the
College of the Ozarks, and went to Princeton Theological
Seminary. After graduating at Princeton, he was a pastor in
Maryland and New Jersey until he came to Tennessee. In
Chattanooga he succeeded Rev. Donald A. Spencer, now of
Pittsburgh, also a Director of Maryville College. Rev. Dr.
Edgar A. Elmore, a graduate of Maryville College, and
Chairman of the Board of Directors from 1906 to 1927, was
pastor of this same church for more than thirty-five years.
THE ALUMNI DIRECTORY
With ;i iiii;inimous vote i)i the Executive Board of the
Ahiiiiiii Association to provide eiicoiiragciiient, the piibhcation
of tlu.' 1958 Ahiinni Directory was undertaken in hite October,
1957, and cuhninated nearly ten months later with tlu- long-
awaited appearance of the finished prothicl.
More than one liundred notes and letters have already
hecn received from enthusiastic ahunni, ranging from pithy
"Congratulations on a job well done" to a lengthy two-page
epistle from an alumnus of an older generation who was
roused to the heights of nostalgic reminiscence by the names
which the Directory recalled.
Acknowledgement of these letters and of the many checks
in extra amounts from pleased alumni has been an impossi-
bility. Checks have ranged from the fifty cents set as the
cost to as high as twenty-five and thirty dollars! Alumni
( and alumnae! ) from whom we haven't heard in years were
moved to express their thanks in writing, like the alumna
who quipped: "I have spent all afternoon looking at it . . .
You have literally heaped coals of fire on my head by keeping
me on the mailing list when I have been so remiss. I promise
to do better in the future."
Typical comment comes from the Rev. John T. Wriggins,
'28, of Bremen, Ohio, who writes: "The Directory should go
a great way toward bringing Maryville folks together." "A
monumental job," comments Beth H. Kemen, '47, of Craw-
fordsville, Indiana. And Dr. Wendell Whetstone, ex'42, now
of Vero Beach, Florida, says, "You and your staff are to be
congratulated on the fine completion of a staggering under-
The heart-warming experience of browsing through the
Directory and renewing acquaintances with names long-forgot-
ten was emphasized by many. Mrs. John C. ( Myrtle Ardis )
Groome, '25, Mt. Holly Springs, Pa., reports an immediate
personal experience while holding a conference at Carlisle
( Pa. ) High School. She was called to the phone, and a
"voice of the past," that of Dr. Clinton M. Puff, '26, of
Scottdale, Pa., came to her ears. It was the result of a
perusing of the Alumni Directory by Dr. Puff, who was at-
tending a meeting in nearby Harrisburg.
And all the way from Vernon, Texas, Mrs. Curtis Renfro
(Vera Scales) writes: "I have just returned from a week in
the hospital to find my new Directory. Needless to say, I
spent many hours studying it — and now I can write letters
to some of my friends."
From "right around home," Mary W. Wolfe, ex'20, of
Piney Flats, Tenn., offers the following comment: "The Direc-
tory has meant the renewing of some old friendships that
I doubt I would have made otherwise. College friendships
are just different and more lasting than others." And Mrs.
N. H. (Ruth Buchanan) Briggs, '30, of Maplewood, N. J.,
echoes the idea: "The Alumni Directory is a wonderful piece
of work. I have been poring over it, looking up old friends,
and enjoying reminiscences."
Lest you think the alumnae are the only one impelled
to say something, here is a quote from Lciand T. Waggoner.
'38, a Vice President of the Life Insurance Company of
North America in Philadelphia, Pa.: "The Directory \\'as
received, and I just want to say that I think this is the
best project the Alumni Association has ever had." Jim Dance,
'51, a real pro who knows what he's talking about since he
is a librarian at the Detroit Public Library with an impres-
sive record of outstanding T\' productions and similar acliieve-
ments, chimes in with this word: "The Directory is a compact
and useful little volume, and you are all to be congratulated
for producing it with such efficiency." Jim then makes a
couple of top-notch suggestions which we are tucking away
for future reference.
There were omissions and errors. We're sorry, and we
appreciate the fact that ahunni have been extremely under-
standing. Don Briggs, who practically fathered the project
as Alumni Association President last year, wrote a highly
complimentary note thovigh his wife's name had not appeared!
Actually, her name has not been on our mailing list as all
communications from the College are addressed to Don, which
explains the omission but does not excuse it. For your in-
formation, she was Ruth Farlee, ex'34. Joe C. Gamble,
Chairman of the Board of Directors, also tripped us up with
several corrections among his family, and although we par-
tially saved face, he had us dead to rights on at least one.
But Joe and Don and all the other patient alumni not only
came through with a congratulatory note, despite the errors
of commission and omission, but also helped with a sub-
stantial contribution over and above the fifty cent minimum!
As of this date — late October — we've received S640 since
August first, and approximately $150 had come in prior to
last summer. That's about half the publication cost. 'N'uff
We knew we were vulnerable on several counts, and
three or four criticisms, all very kindly, have been made on
these points. We are taking steps to remedy each. A handy
supplement for alumni in the years from the 1880's to about
1910 is planned immediately, for it is indeed difficult for
some of them to search through the fine print of the Direc-
tory in an effort to find the few names of their classmates
and friends; the Class of 1958 will also come in for special
treatment in another supplement; and the many corrected
addresses which we knew would be the inevitable result of
the publication of the Directory will be made available
By the time we get around to another edition of file
Directory, we'll be set up (we hope) to handle either an
alphabetical or a class by class Directory — or both. In addi-
tion, of course, to the present geographical presentation.
You'll have to admit we made a good try!
THE BEWLEY STORY
The Associated Press last May carried on its wires
throughout the nation the fascinating story of one of the
Maryville College graduates in the Class of 1901. It barely
missed by a week the perfect timing which would have
made it a natural for the Commencement Week program.
Dr. Luther B. Bewlcy, who has been tenncd the "father
of education" in the Philippines, was the alunmus thus hon-
ored. Dr. Bewley went to the Philippines in 1902, just a
year after graduation from Maryville, and served variously
as teacher, di\ision superintendent of sch(X)ls, assistant di-
rector of education, and finally, as Director of Education,
a post which he held for eighteen years, the longest period
any man has held this position.
Dr. Bewlcy retired from public service in 1957, shortK'
after the death of the late President Ramon Magsaysay in a
plane crash. He now lives in the Manila Hotel, where the
.■\P dispatch says his secluded life is punctuated by visits
to or from his two young grandchildren.

DEATH OF JUDGE HOUSTON
DEATH OF BONNIE HUDSON BROWN
One of the most honored names among Maryville College
alumni and Maryville College Directors has long been that
of Judge Samuel O'Grady Houston, '98, who died on August
29, 1958. He was Chairman of the Directors for twenty-
one years, from 1932 to 1953. At the Fall Meeting of the
Board of Directors, October 17, President Ralph W. Lloyd
read the following minute which he had prepared concerning
Judge Houston, and we are glad to make this available to all
Samuel O'Grady Houston, a Director of Maryville
College for 48 years, chairman of the Board for twenty-
one years, and an Honorary Director for one year, died
at his home on Island Home Pike in Kno.wille, on
August 29, 1958, at the age of eighty-seven.
Judge Houston, as he was universally known, was
born on April 13, 1871, in the venerable parish of
Eusebia Presbyterian Church, twelve miles east of Mary-
ville; and his boyhood home was there. His paternal
ancestors came to East Tennessee from Virginia. A grand
uncle was General Sam Houston who lived as a youth
in the Maryville area before going west to achieve fame
in Tennessee and Te.xas.
Samuel O'Grady Houston and four brothers in due
time attended Maryville College and Samuel graduated
with the B.A. degree in 1898. He then attended the
Law School of the University of Tennessee, from which
he received the degree of Bachelor of Laws in 1902.
He was married to Catherine Love whom he met when
she too was a student at Maryville College.
For the twenty-four years after graduation from
Law School he practiced law in Knoxville. In 1926 he
was elected Judge of Knox County in which office he
served sixteen years, until 1942, when at the age of
seventy-one he returned to the practice of law in which
he continued until forced by health to retire.
Judge Houston served on many civic committees and
boards to which men of integrity, judgment, and devotion
to the public good are called. He was for many years
an elder in the Presbyterian Church, and for long periods
served as Sunday School teacher and superintendent.
For more than fifteen years he was Chairman of Pres-
bytery's Committee on National Missions.
He was closely related to Maryville College: as a
student and graduate; as father of three sons who at-
tended the College; as a member of the Board of
Directors for forty-nine years, being elected in 1909 only
eleven years after his graduation; and as Chairman from
1932 to 1953.
Some of the present Directors will remember well
the interest, the judiciousness, and the kindliness with
which he presided here for so many years. Two Presi-
dents and a host of others have testified to his interested,
wise and loyal counsel and leadership.
Judge Houston exemplified the Christian spirit and
ideals of Maryville College to a remarkable degree,
and in 1938 the College recognized this officially in
conferring upon him the honorary degree of Doctor of
Laws. As he closes his earthly career in the fullness
of years we thank God again for his life and work.
About the middle of August Bonnie Hudson Brown and
her husband. Rev. George E. Brown, went to Kentucky for
a short vacation before the opening of college and the begin-
ning of her fall work as Assistant Professor of Biology. She
drove the car and seemed well. On arrival she noticed some
slight trouble in coordination, soon found it increasing, ulti-
mately was taken to a hospital in Louisville where diagnosis
indicated a brain tumor, an operation was performed, and
then a second operation. But the condition was so serious
that she became steadily worse and died on September 12.
Her body was brought back to Maryville for burial. On
September 14 President Ralph \V. Lloyd and Professor
Horace E. Orr conducted the funeral service in the College
Mrs. Brown graduated at Maryville College in 1927 and
was a member of the Faculty from 1929 initil her death.
She was married in 1936 to Rev. George E. Brown, a
Maryville graduate of 1933. She was an excellent teacher,
was much beloved and her loss is a serious one for the
Since this Almnni Issue went to press there have
occurred two deaths in the Faculty and Staff about
which fuller information will be given to alumni later.
Dr. Horace E. Orr, a Professor at Maryville College
since 1920, died on November 1; and Mrs. Elizabeth
Benedict Hall, whose service as Matron of the College
Infirmary began in 1920, died on November 11.
PRESIDENT LLOYD'S TRAVEL ABROAD
FEBRUARY MEETINGS - 1959
During 1958 President Ralpli W. Lloyd luis iiuido three
trips outside of the United States. All have been in eon-
nection with the Churehes' ecumenical mission and relation-
During August Dr. Llo\d attended two meetings across
the Atlantic. The first was that of the Executive Committee
of the World Presbyterian Alliance in Edinburgh, Scotland,
August 4-9. The second was that of the Central Committee
of the World Council of Churches at Nyborg Strand, Den-
mark, August 21-28. He and Mrs. Lloyd, accompanied by
their daughter Ruth Lloyd Kramer, M.C. '47, and their niece
Margaret Sloan of Pittsburgh, went over on the Queen Mary
to Southampton, England, and returned by air ( KLM ) from
Amsterdam. There were visits also to the World's Fair in
Brussels, to Paris, and to Munich, Germany; and Dr. Lloyd
had speaking engagements in London, did a BBC broadcast
in Edinburgh, and spent a week in Geneva, Switzerland,
on business of the World Presbyterian Alliance.
The last week in September took President Lloyd to
Mexico City as official representative of the World Presby-
terian Alliance to the Second Conference of the Presbyterian
Churches of Latin America. There were present appro.xi-
mately seventy-five representatives from eight Latin American
countries. Dr. Lloyd was one of the speakers on the pro-
gram and on Sunday preached in the principal Methodist
Church of Mexico City. On the way to Mexico, he stopped
at Trinity University, San Antonio, Texas, where he spoke
at the opening chapel convocation of the year. He saw there
three Maryville College alumni who are on the faculty and
staff there: Frank R. Neff, Jr., '33 (Associate Professor of
Religion), Stanley H. Hall '37 (Associate Professor of Health,
Physical Education, and Recreation) and Walter P. West,
'38 ( Director of Admissions ) .
During the first half of November, Dr. Lloyd visited
Brazil and other countries of South America, in behalf of
the World Presbyterian Alliance. He is General Chairmari of
the Committee on Program and Arrangements for the 18th
General Council of the Alliance which will be held in Brazil
July 27 to August 6, 1959. This is a meeting held usually
once in five years with delegates representing a Presbyterian
and Reformed Church constituency of about forty-five million
in over forty countries. Dr. Lloyd and Dr. Marcel Pradervand
of Geneva, Switzerland, (M.C. Honorary Alumus, '49), Gen-
eral Secretary of the Alliance, were together in Brazil con-
ferring with Brazilian church leaders on arrangements for
the world meeting next siunmer.
He filled various speaking appointments in Protestant
churches in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo, Brazil, and Bogota,
Colombia, and in other church groups including J. M.C. (Col-
lege) in Brazil where Olson Pemberton, Jr., M.C. '43, is Dean,
and the Presbyterian Theological Seminary at Campinas, Brazil.
There are a number of Maryville College alumni in Latin
America and Dr. Lloyd was able to see several of them both
at the September Conference in Mexico City and on this
trip to Brazil.
The 83rd scries of I'Vbruary Meetings is scheduled for
February 4-12, 19.59. The leader and speaker will be the
Rev. Joseph J. Copeland, D.D., Pastor of Second Presbyterian
Church, Knoxville, Tennessee.
-Associated with him to torm the "February Meetings
Team" of three will be Rev. John Magill, D.D., Pastor of
Abington Presbyterian Church, Abington, Pennsylvania, as
song leader; and Henry Barraclough, LL.D., Philadelphia, as
This will be the second time Dr. Copeland has led the
Meetings, the first being in 1954. The invitation to return,
which he has generously accepted, is evidence of the great
effectiveness of his ministry then. Dr. Copeland has been
Pastor of Second Church, Knoxville, since 1952, when he
came from the First Presbyterian Church, Denton, Te.xas,
as successor to Dr. Clifford E. Barbour. Since the 1954
Meetings his church has built a large and beautiful completely
new plant at a cost of nearly one million dollars. He is a
graduate of Trinity University, Texas, and McCormick Theo-
logical Seminary, Chicago; is a member of the Board of
Directors of Maryville College, and of the Board of Christian
Education of the United Presbyterian Church in the U.S..\.
This will be the sixth time that Dr. Magill has led the
singing. He is a graduate of Maryville College in the Class
of 1939 and of McCormick Seminary and renders this ser\-ice
as a kind of avocation. Music is not his vocation but merely
one of his various accomplishments. He takes time for the
Meetings from heavy duties as pastor of a church of nearly
twenty-five hundred members.
Likewise Dr. Barraclough ( "Barrie" ) gives this big block
of time from a crowded program which is quite apart from
music. As is well known, he is Associate Stated Clerk of
the General Assembly of the United Presbyterian Church in
the U.S.A. When a young man he came from England to
America as pianist of the famous evangelistic team of
Chapman and Alexander, and his playing in the February
Meetings is a brief annual return to that notable period in
his career. This will be his eighth year at Maryville.
The Meetings will open on Wednesday morning, Febru-
ary 4, and close on Thursday morning, Febnuiry 12, with
daily services at 9:45 a. m. and 7:00 p. m.
IN APPRECIATION ....
The spring issue of the Alumni Bulletin was dedicated to
Mr. Ernest C. Brown, or "Brownie," as he is well known to
hundreds of alumni, lie and Mrs. Brown have received uiany
messages from friends all over the world following the publi-
cation of the Btillctiii. They ha\e asked that these man>-
notes and letters be acknowledged and the writers thanked in
this issue. It is a virtual impossibility for them to answer
them all personally. But the> arc truly apprcciati\e.
SPORT-LIGHT ON THE HILL
Facing a tough schedule with a typical situation this
fall — few returning letternien and a number of promising
freshmen — Coach John A. (J. D. ) Davis and his assistants,
Marvin Mitchell and Tom Cragan, switched from the tradi-
tional single-wing to the T-formation which was used so
successfully at the close of the 1957 season. Only nine letter-
men returned this fall, and the squad numbered at least fifty
per cent freshmen.
Opening the season was a newcomer, Gordon Military
College, of Georgia, an unknown which turned out to be a
tartar, taking the Scots by an 8-6 score. It was a good game,
close all the way, and a couple of breaks could have turned
things in favor of the Highlanders. But the cards simply
didn't fall that way.
Centre College of Kentucky, traditionally one of our better
games, was another squeeker, with the Scots coming out once
more on the short end of the score, 1.3-7. Jacksonville State,
of Alabama, a powerhouse as usual, ground out a 28-8 victory
over the Highlanders in their third start.
Then the injury jinx, successor to last year's flu epidemic,
hit the small but fighting squad, with three starters sidelined
with knee injuries and an assortment of other ailments which
really riddled the team. Georgetown of Kentucky, a top-
heavy favorite to roll over the Scots, had its hands full and
was happy to escape with a 25-12 victory. The scrappy
Highlanders, with half a dozen freshmen in the starting
lineup, made a real battle of it but went down from sheer
force of numbers, outweighed in the line by more than
twenty-five poimds per man.
Emory and Henry, with one of its best teams in years,
caught the decimated Maryville eleven in the Homecoming
game before an enthusiastic and loyal alumni crowd and
steam-rollered them by a convincing 42-0 count. The High-
landers never could generate steam in this one and were
Sewanee, enjoying a pigskin renaissance with a slick squad
ably coached by Shirley Majors, then powered its way to a
46-0 victory over the Maryville eleven, making the season's
record after si.x games a rather unimposing 0-6 count.
Remaining on the schedule are contests with powerful
Lenoir-Rhyne, for three years in succession the winner of the
North State Conference in North Carolina, Concord State, of
West Virginia, and the final contest of the season with arch-
rival Carson-Newman, Lenoir-Rhyne packs too many heavy
guns for the Highlanders to hope for much in this engage-
ment, so whatever is to be salvaged from a disheartening
season will have to be gained in the Concord State game and
the Carson-Newman setto, when anything can happen. In
the meantime, we'll be hoping!
Again, the Alumni Association will present two trophies
to members of the football squad, an award to the most valu-
able player, and a similar trophy to the most improved player.
It won't be long now before the winter sports season
starts. Basketball hopes are high and the wrestling squad
will have several veterans. Here are the schedules:

SOCCER AT MARYVILLE COLLEGE
The Maryville College soccer team, now in its second year
of operation, has had quite a successful year. The final record
was two wins and four losses. The two victories, one over
Carson-Newman by a 5-4 count and the other over the Uni-
versity of Tennessee by a 3-0 score, were very encouraging,
and showed definite promise of better things next year, as the
twin victories came in the final games of the schedule.
Last year, two games were played, both resulting in losses
to King College. King also took the measure of the High-
landers this fall in two well-played games, 2-1 and 3-0. The
other two early season losses were to U.T. by a 3-2 count and
to Carson-Newman in a 3-0 contest.
