A CoUeKfe, 



Peter Cartwright 



"A College 'mid plains is standing, standing there from olden days, 

The Pioneer of prairies, first in untrodden ways. 

For service and Christian culture, for efficiency she stands, 

Her sons and daughters praise her, with voices, hearts and hands."

. .A COLLEGE 15 STANDING 

High upon the "Old Hill" at 
Lebanon, Illinois, stands a true 
"Pioneer of prairies." Though the 
school loyalty song has been since 
changed to read "Pioneer of learn- 
ing," the original version caught 
the spirit of the oldest Methodist 
college in the United States.

. .A COLLEGE IS STANDING 



Into the establishing of that 
college went the dreams, faith, 
and prayers of many people. Mc- 
Kendree is not the largest college ; 
she is not the wealthiest. Her 
buildings aie not gleaming struc- 
tures of steel and glass. But Mc- 
Kendree offers something else. 
At McKendree the seeker may 
find faith in God, and what may 
be more important, faith in him- 
self. 



Mellow brick buildings, ivy- 
covered walls, a twisting walk, 
the soft chimes of the chapel 
bell — these are McKendree Col- 
lege today. And McKendree of 
.yesterday ? Out of the swirling 
mists emerges a circuit rider. 
With tall hat, high boots, and 
well-worn saddle bags, he jogs 
along — Peter Cartwright — educa- 
tor, farmer, autht)r, and lecturer 
— one of the founders of McKen- 
dree.

In this, the 125th anniversary year of the founding of 
the college, we have found it only fitting to center our ef- 
forts around these 125 event-packed years. Thus, the theme 
of the 1953 McKendrean is dedicated to the history of our 
Alma Mater. 

. . . A College Is Standing. 

One September day in 1827 when the leaves were turning 

to a mass of flame and gold, twenty-seven circuit riders with 

their hymn books, reports, and Disciplines stowed in their 

saddle bags rode into Mount Carmel for the annual meeting 

of the conference. 




Among them was Peter Cartwright, 
man of many abilities, who carried a 
petition from the citizens of Greene 
County asking that a seminary be 
established at Lebanon, 111. The peti- 
tion was referred to a committee, and 
the citizens of Lebanon began to plan 
and work. Such was the unpreten- 
tious conception of McKendree College, 
called then simply the Lebanon Sem- 
inary. 




Pictured above are McKendree Journalists and their in-

the Illinois College Press Association meeting in Bloomington 
where the 1951 McKendrean cover was awarded first place.

BISHOP J. MAGEE, resident Bishop of 
the Chicago Area of the Methodist church 
and a member of the McKendree College 
Board of Trustees, was Baccalaureate 
speaker for the 1952 graduating class. 

Bishop Magee was graduated from Mor- 
ingside College and Boston University 
School of Theology. Two honorary de- 
giees, D.D., and LL.D., were conferred 
upon him.

Illinois Governor Adlai Stevenson 
visited McKendree to deliver the 1952 
Commencement address in outdoor 
graduation exercises at HjiJes Field. 
An honorary degree of Doctor of Laws 
of McKendree College was conferred 
upon Gov. Stevenson at that time.

Among other statesmen who 
have played prominent parts in 
the history of McKendree are 
Governor Charles S. Deneen, an 
alumnus of the college; Lawrence 
Y. Sherman, fonner United States 
Senator from Illinois; and Augus- 
tus French, Illinois Governor who

dree College faculty.

. . .A COLLEGE IS STANDING 

And the name McKendree? When 
Bishop McKendree visited Lebanon in 
1830, he became so enthused about 
the progress of the school that he 
donated a quarter section of land near 
Shiloh. Thus, the school was named 
in that great clergyman's honor. 

. . .A COLLEGE IS STANDING 

From the halls of McKendree where 
the white-bearded leaders of the past 
gaze unperturbed out of their lofty 
i^rames, have gone great numbers of 
Christian men who have, in their own 
ways, contributed much to the build- 
ing of a Christian society and a better 
world. In its 125 years, McKendree 
College has aided the Methodist 
Church in many ways. The entire 
church has been enriched by the minis- 
ters trained at McKendree. 



Almost every hour during the school 
week, the sonorous tones of the chapel 
bell ring forth to summon students 
and teachers alike to class. For over 
30 years, McKendree has possessed 
this — the oldest chapel bell in the 
United States. Its past is as myster- 
ious as the tones it creates. Centuries 
before Columbus discovered America, 
the chime of this same bell was heard. 
Historians claim that it was cast in 
Spain during the 8th century ! Brought 
to America during the early days of 



our country, it found its way to 
Florida, then to St. Louis, where it 
was recast, and finally to the Illinois 
State Fair in Centralia. It was here 
that Mr. Cobleigh, who was then 
president of McKendree, saw the bell 
and purchased it. 

Resting now in the dark clock tower 
at McKendiee, the bell is little seen by 
the outside world. Few people realize 
the romance of its long history. 

. . .A COLLEGE IS STANDING 

Another "first" is the building 
known as Old Main — the oldest assem- 
bly hall west of the Alleghenies. Of 
a plain, sturdy design. Old Main, to- 
day as in the past, houses the ad- 
ministrative staff, six class rooms, and 
Philo and Plato halls. The interior 
was recently redecorated and now is 
sparkling in fresh paint and new wood. 
The exterior remains much the same 
as when it was erected in 1850. 

. . .A COLLEGE IS STANDING 

The original building, a frame con- 
struction, was burned in 1856. It had 
been used for religious services and 
assemblies. This destructive fire led 
to the building of the Chapel, the land- 
mark of McKendree. When one thinks 
of the college, the chapel automatically 
comes to nind. Located near Cen- 
tennial Walk, this historic building 
was completed in 1858. 



"Enduring and strong she stands there, stands upon our College Hill, 
Though others may outnumber, she holds the first place still, 
For beauty and truth and knowledge, and for sei-vice without bound, 
Then let us raise our voices, until the plains resound."

Dr. Russell Grow came to McKendree in 
1950. In the ensuing years, Dr. Grow 
has devoted much effort to making McKen- 
dree College better in every way. 

Old Main has been renovated, the stu- 
dent lounge completed, and the library re- 
modeled. Dr. Grow's plans for the future 
of McKendree are even more promising.

CONFERENCE 
HAMPIONSHIP 



The McKendree College Bearcats, during the 1952-1953 
basketball season, have been as affable as a wet dog, as re- 
bellious as the sea, and, at times more gentle than the wind 
in the summer. 

It was an interesting campaign, sparkling with All- 
American opponents, exciting games, and a conference cham- 
pionship. Shooting one of the highest point averages in the 
histoi-y of McKendree, the Bearcats hit 83.5 points a game,

shot a respectable 37 per cent of their field goal 
attempts, and won 19 of 27 games. They ex- 
tended their undefeated home record to a span 
covering two and a half years. Five times they 
surged over the 100 mark. 

A just and fitting finale to this coloiful 
season occurred on Feb. 28 when the Bearcats rose 
like dust before the whirlwind's force to ascend 
on and devour Ft. Leonard Wood, one of the world's 
greatest military teams. The Hilltoppers snarled 
like old dogs as Collie's quintet captivated the 
hearts of the applauding fans by forging ahead 
in the final minutes to win, 98 to 92. 

Loy Dale Cruse, Gene Hoyt, George Butler, 
Richard Herrin, Burton Gedney, Charles Leckrone 
and Dean Heitman should receive laurels for their 
magnificent performance in this game. 

It was an inconsistent season. The team ac- 
cepted defeats that should have been victories. 
The Bearcats looked as if they were in a labyrinth 
as they hob-nobbed their way through the Vin- 
cennes, Southeast Missouri and Shurtleff games. 
Perhaps some defeats were more triumphant than 
victories. No McKendreans came home saddened 



McKendree's tallest and shortest bas- 
keteers are Gene Hoyt (6-7) and George 
Butler (5-8). 



after the 84-to-55 loss to the Phillips Oilers. It 
was rather a celebration for few teams had ever 
come within 30 points of these Olympic greats. 

A good standard of sportsmanship along with 
basketball excellence are two criteria that have 
been and will continue to be well-known traditions 
at McKendree.
