MCKENDREE COLLEGE 
LEBANON/ lll\HO\S 




MRS. RUSSELL GROW 



DEDICATION 



The staff of the 1954 McKendrean dedicates this annual to the most gracious first 
lady of McKendree college, Mrs. Russell Grow. 

The wife of our college president, Mrs. Grow has been an inspiration to every 
woman attending McKendree. Among her many duties, she has served as President of 
the Faculty Women's Club, Sponsor of the Clionian Literary Society, and as an instruct- 
or in the Division of Social Studies. 



Of her time she has given unhesitatingly. Of herself she has given to the fullest 
measure. No one has done more to bring beauty to our campus. No one is more de- 
serving of recognition. 




Mrs. Russell Grow, and Dr. Grow are shown with the late Mrs. 
Tillie M. Stevenson in Stevenson House as she welcomed them on the 
day Dr. Grow received word of his appointment as President of the 
college. 



IH MEMORY 

of an outstanding McKendree benefactress 

of a sincere Christian leader 

of Mrs. Tillie M. Stevenson, Sparta, 111., widow of Dr. N. G. Stevenson

MR. PRESIDENT 



Truly MR. PRESIDENT of McKendree campus, Dr. Russell Grow has added dignity 
and charm to the highest office at McKendree. A man of rare oratorical ability and an 
outstanding Methodist layman , he is very much in demand for speaking engagements. 

Dr. Grow is indeed an Ambassador of Good Will for our college. McKendree has 
grown and will continue to "Grow With Grow"! 



A graduate of Northeastern State College, Tahlequah, Oklahoma, Dr. Grow holds his 
M. A. from the University of Nebraska at Lincoln, and his Ph. D. also from that univer- 
sity. He became president of McKendree College in 1950. 



WELCOME 

TO OUR NEW DEAN 



In 1953, McKendree college welcomed a new dean, Dr. Norman Grandy. Dr. Grandy 
replaced Dean L. B. Van Winkle who served at McKendree for six years. 

Coming to McKendree in 1951, Dr. Grandy was professor of philosophy and religion 
until his appointment as dean. 

A graduate of Lawrence College, Appleton, Wisconsin, he received his B. D. at North- 
western University, Evanston, Illinois; his M.A. at Garrett Biblical Institute, Evanston; 
and his Ph. D. at Northwestern.

Six McKendree seniors were selected to be listed in "Who's Who Among 
Students in American Universities and Colleges" in the 1953-54 edition of the

Moral support for the Bearcats was led by this 
quartet of cheerleaders. With the exception of Mary 
Ellen Sichling, they were all new to the position, 
but each carried off the responsibility very well. 
They are left to right, Alice McPherson, Mary 
Ellen, Shirley Sydnor, and Sharon Reed. 




Physical support was provided the team by train- 
ers Bob Dosier (right) and Lou Kampmeyer. Their 
work behind the scenes helped make possible the per- 
formances on the court, and in this year of accidents, 
sprains, and strains, they were worth their weight 
in tape. 




Despite a pre-season accident which cost the serv- 
ices of a regular and two squadmen for the whole year 
and another regular for the first semester, coach 
James E. Collie's Bearcats came home with a very 
satisfying 18-9 record, and more important, a share 
of the PCC title. 

Rich Herrin, a 13-point-per-game scorer as a 
sophomore, and JV letterman Jim Jackson were 
unable to work out all year. Letterman Phil Leuellen 
could appear briefly only in two games. Regular 
George (Tip) Butler came back second term in time 
to get in 14 games and rack 193 points. 

When the accident news made the rounds of the 
conference, heads were shook and McKendree was 
relegated automatically to the second division. These 
predictions looked good when Shurtleff beat the 
Bearcats, with Hoyt ineligible, in the league opener 
at Lebanon. 

But the defending champions bounced back to win 
the next nine and a well-deserved split of the crown. 
Though playing subpar ball against several weak con- 
tenders, McKendree ran all over Rose Poly, edged 
Shurtleff at Wood River, and finished the PCC race 
by tripping Greenville 92-63. 




Several members of McKendree's 1954 track team were gathered for this 
pre-season picture. Shown, left to right (kneeling), are Phil Leuellen, Virgil 
Motsinger, Burton Gedney, Dale Sanner;( standing) coach James E. Collie, Douglas 
Johnson, Charles Leckrone, Darrel Conner, Finis Dewe, Dick Thompson, Rich 
Stein. 



Other season highlights were a 19-point pasting of Scott in the first meeting, 
victories over well- rated Missouri Valley- -twice conqueror of Shurtleff--and 
Kalamazoo, and a 98-84 burst against Quincy to close out the campaign. 



Gene Hoyt, 6-7 front-liner, added a new set of career scoring records to the 
books to go with his season and game standards. In 115 appearances as a Bearcat 
he fired 2510 points for a game average of 21.8.
