$4 Million Needed to Complete 'Strategy' 

Lenoir-Rhyne College alumni have been asked to play 
an important role in the largest single program of ad- 
vance ever undertaken by the college. A goal of $1 
million, or approximately one-fourth of the remaining 
needs of the Strategy for the Seventies program, was 
recently approved by the Alumni Board of Directors. 

The Strategy for the Seventies is the plan of academic 
program and physical plant development which incor- 
porates an adjusted fund-raising goal of $12 million for 
the years. 1970-79. Approximately $8 million has been 
secured through the first seven years of this period, and 
the total cost of meeting remaining needs is estimated 
at $4,1 70,000.

The Strategy for the Seventies program has been suc- 
cessful through its first seven years. The fulfillment of 
the remaining needs of the long-range development 
program is the immediate challenge in the concluding 
three years of the decade. When these needs are met, 
the college will have completed one of the most 
significant programs in its long history. 

A Board of Trustees — authorized study is presently 
underway to determine whether there is a base of 
leadership support to develop a major campaign and to 
determine the goal level for the campaign program.The 
Board has secured the services of Ward, Dreshman and 
Reinhardt, Inc., of Columbus, Ohio, to conduct the 
"feasibility plus" study and develop a campaign by the 
end of July. 

The proposed campaign is visualized as being an in- 
tensive and extensive effort among all support con- 
stituencies within the six contiguous counties of the 
Greater Catawba Valley, as well as all alumni 
throughout the U.S. 

The Loyalty Fund which alumni conduct each year in 
support of current operations of the college will be in- 
corporated in the proposed campaign and projected 
over a three-year period of pledge support. Nearly half a 
million dollars will be sought for this vital area of alumni 

Alumni will also be challenged to raise an additional 
half million dollars to help meet other needs. These 
needs are illustrated in the following inventory of needs. 


(Thumbnail Description) 

Completion of Shuford Physical Education Center. . . 

Addition to Shuford Memorial Gymnasium will include 
classrooms, office space, men's and women's locker 
facilities, handball courts, a physical education gymnasium 
and an Olympic swimming pool. 

Learning Resources Center 

A two-story addition to the library to unify and centralize 
campus services, facilities, learning resources, equipment 
and material to provide a more efficient and fruitful learning 
experience. The facility will include TV/radio studio, audio 
and control room, 2 graphics laboratories, 3 photographic 
darkrooms, 1 equipment pool, repair shop, offices, rest- 
rooms, service rooms and space for the academic com- 
puter, curriculum lab, language lab, and printing services. 

Professorship - Business Administration 

Endowment established to enable the college to employ 
a faculty member with an earned doctorate. Competition 
for persons holding doctorates in the business field is 
keen. To meet comparable salaries as commanded in 
industry makes it mandatory that a means of meeting this 
challenge is provided. 

$ 800,000 





Loyalty Fund for Operations 1977-1979 

Loyalty Fund needs over the next three years are incor- 
proated into the capital program to benefit from the inten- 
sive effort to be developed in the campaign.

complete decade needs of the Biology Department; addit- 
ional lighting, and parking facilities, and an energy study 
and conversion.

vide travel funds for faculty and students to sites of hearing 
-impaired specialization; and purchase of equipment for 
use on campus that is particular to the needs of the hearing 
impaired program.

April 1977 


Donors who pledge to the Greater Catawba Valley and 
Alumni Campaign over a three-year period will not be 
contacted for a pledge to Loyalty Fund again in this 

It is hoped that every alumni contributor to past Loyalty 
Fund efforts will plan their gifts at an unprecedented 
level to help assure the achievement of the $1 million 
alumni goal and in turn the realization of the $4,1 70,000 
total college need. 

The approach to be developed among alumni is to 
secure leadership enlistments in every community of 
the U.S. with a concentration of five or more alumni. 

North Carolina with the largest concentration of alumni 
is being organized into three separate areas which will 
ultimately reach into 127 communities and provide op- 
portunity for more than 10,000 alumni to be reached in 
the campaign program. 

Twenty-two additional states will also be organized 
which will bring another 2,500 alumni into the campaign 

It is estimated that more than 2,000 alumni will par- 
ticipate as leaders in the campaign. 

The success of the alumni phase of this major cam- 
paign will depend upon the willingness of all alumni 
throughout the country to serve in these important 
leadership roles in the developing campaign structure. 

Contacts are being initiated among alumni and as you 
are contacted, your active involvement and par- 
ticipation will be vital to the success of the college's ef-

Development Up-Date 

Dr. R. Paul Kercher 
Director of Development 


Total gifts to Lenoir-Rhyne College in 
1976 from all sources amounted to 

$1 ,071 ,894 — up $92,685 from 1 975. 
This is the first time in our history that 
gift support has exceeded the million 
dollar mark in any given calendar year. 
A summary of the sources of this 
support begins on page nine. 


Total funds received in cash or 
pledges in the Strategy for the Seven- 
ties program now stands at $8,1 1 2,840 
— up from $5,200,000 one year ago. 
The revised goal of the Strategy 
program is $12,000,000 for current 
operations, buildings and endowment 
by December 31, 1979. The Strategy 
for the Seventies is a comprehensive, 
decade-long plan aimed at 
strengthening the academic and in- 
structional program of the college, 
renovating and updating the physical 
plant, providing new buildings and 
facilities, and adding substantially to 
the endowment. 




The Lenoir-Rhyne College Forward 
Together Campaign among the 207 
congregations of the North Carolina 
Synod of the Lutheran Church in 
America now stands at $1,600,000 in 
pledges and commitments. This 
amount exceeds the basic goal of 
$1,200,000 and the advance goal of 

$1,500,000. The challenge goal is 
$2,000,000. The intensive phase of the 
campaign ended March 31, but ad- 
ditional field work and follow-up will 
continue through the 33-month pledge 
payout period, April 1, 1977 - Decem- 
ber 31, 1979. 

Forward Together funds will provide 
a new classroom building, the 
renovation of the Rhyne classroom 
building and additional endowment. 

Dr. Walter T. Nau 


Dr. Walter T. Nau, a professor 
emeritus of Lenoir-Rhyne, has been 
engaged as Campaign Progress Direc- 
tor for the Forward Together Cam- 

A long-time Hickory resident, Dr. Nau 
was an active member of the Lenoir- 
Rhyne faculty from 1945-1974. He 
taught French and German and chaired 
the department. Before joining the 
college faculty, he was an instructor at 
Duke University. 

Dr. Nau holds a bachelor of arts 
degree from Guilford College, as well 

as master of arts and doctor of 
philosophy degrees from Duke. Also a 
graduate of Concordia Seminary, he 
has been a Lutheran clergyman for 
many years. He has served parishes in 
Virginia, Illinois and North Carolina, the 
last being St. Mark's Lutheran Church 
in China Grove. 

Dr. Nau has distinguished himself in 
many different fields. He has served as 
chairman of the Hickory City School 
Board and a district governor of Rotary 
International. He is currently president 
of the Western Piedmont Symphony 
Society and chairman of the State Con- 
tinuing Education Committee for Men- 
tal Health Services. 

We are pleased to have Dr. Nau join 
our development staff for the vital work 
of the campaign's follow-up phase. 


The Spring Development Board 
meeting, set for Saturday, April 30, on 
the campus, will mark the tenth an- 
niversary of the founding of the Board 
in 1967. The principal business of the 
meeting will be the consideration of the 
restructuring plan whereby the Board 
would be organized into four 
permanent committees — Human 

Resouces, Constituency Services, 
Development Program and Student 

Chairing the 35-member Board is Dr. 
George P. Hager of Chapel Hill; vice- 
chairman is Harley F. Shuford Sr. of 




Lenoir-Rhyne College is now in the 
midst of the feasibility phase of a prop- 
osed Catawba Valley and Alumni 
capital funds campaign. The fund- 

Lenoir-Rhyne Magazine 

raising firm of Ward, Dreshman & 
Reinhardt of Worthingfon, Ohio and 
New York City was engaged by the 
Campaign Steering Committee of the 
Strategy for the Seventies and the 
Executive Committee of the Board of 
Trustees to do the study. The director 
of the feasibility phase is Mr. William S. 
Ralston of Staunton, Virginia, who 
began his work at Lenoir-Rhyne on 
March 7. 

The feasibility phase incorporates an 
added dimension called "Feasibility 
Plus" which includes the enlistment of 
top community leaders and solicitation 
of pledges for the campaign from 
selected major donor prospects to 
establish our fund raising potential. It is 
hoped by the end of the "Feasibility 
Plus" period, toward the end of April, 
that leadership and gift commitments 
will be such that a campaign can be 
projected at a goal level which will 
assure that the balance needed for the 
full cost of the proposed Shuford 
Physical Education Center at an 
estimated total cost of $2,200,000 can 
be underwritten. 

Also, at the conclusion of the 
"Feasibility Plus" period, the Cam- 
paign Executive Committee will, with 
representatives of Ward, Dreshman & 
Reinhardt, determine whether there is 
support for a full-fledged Greater 
Catawba Valley and Alumni Campaign 
and, if so, what the objectives and the 
overall goal should be. 

The proposed campaign, which 
would also incorporate the Alumni 
Association and all living alumni into 
their first capital funds campaign in this 
decade, will be the final campaign in 
the Strategy for the Seventies 
program; it is designed to complete the 
objectives set at the beginning of the 
Strategy for the Seventies program in 


Dr. F. L. Conrad '16, through a gift in 
the Forward Together campaign, has 
established the Flavius Leslie and Mary 
Huffman Conrad Scholarship Fund. 
The fund will be endowed ultimately by 
a will bequest which has already been 
arranged. An alumnus of Lenoir- 
Rhyne, as was his wife, the late Mary 
Huffman Conrad '16, Dr. Conrad is an 
honorary chairperson of the Forward 
Together Campaign for which he has 
made numerous visits over the past six 

April 1977 

months across the synod. Dr. Conrad, 
now residing at Kure Beach, was 
president of the N.C. Synod, 1949- 

Mr. & Mrs. C. C. Graham, long-time 
members of St. Mark's Church, China 
Grove, have established the Cecil C. 
and Beulah Linn Graham Scholarship 
Endowment Fund through the Forward 
Together campaign with an initial gift of 
$10,000. The fund will be supplemen- 
ted by additional gifts from the 
Grahams and ultimately through a will 
bequest which has already been 
arranged. The annual income from the 
fund will be awarded to pre-theology 
students at Lenoir-Rhyne planning to 
enter the Christian ministry. 

Miss Suzanne Farrell, a 1972 
Lenoir-Rhyne College graduate now 
employed by the Maryland Institute of 
Emergency Medicine, has established 
an endowment fund to be used for 
strengthening the college nursing 

The fund has been set up in honor of 
Dr. Frances M. Farthing, chairman of 
the Lenoir-Rhyne nursing department, 
and in memory of Miss Louise Clark, 
former Director of Nursing at Grace 
Hospital in Morganton. Miss Farrell had 
both Dr. Farthing and Miss Clark as 
nursing instructors at Lenoir-Rhyne. 

Miss Farrell is a native of Durham, 
where her parents, Mr. & Mrs. L. S. 
Farrell, still reside. 

The Lenoir-Rhyne College Depart- 
ment of Nursing Endowment Fund 
may be added to by interested persons 
at any time. It may be named as the 
beneficiary in wills or used ap- 
propriately as a memorial fund. 

Dr. Voldemars T. Bernards, Lenoir- 
Rhyne professor of Latin, Russian, 
Greek and German languages (1959- 
1973), has arranged for a significant 
bequest in his will for the General En- 
dowment Fund. Now retired and living 
adjacent to the campus, Dr. Bernards 
is a native of Latvia. He earned a doc- 
torate in General and Comparative 
Linquistics from Columbia University 
and became a naturalized citizen of the 
U. S. in 1958. Following an amazing 
career in teaching and Bible tran- 
slation, he was cited in 1973 as "An 
Important and Valuable Human 
Resource of the U.S.A." by the 
American Bicentennial Research In- 


Dr. J. White Iddings '27, who will 
be retiring May 1 as Institutional 
Chaplain for the N. C. Synod of the 
Lutheran Church in America, will be 
joining the development staff of Lenoir- 
Rhyne College on June 1 . To be em- 
ployed on a two-thirds basis, Dr. 
Iddings will devote most of his atten- 
tion to a deferred giving program within 
the synod. He will also be available for 
Forward Together Campaign follow-up 
work, particularly with congregations 
whose campaigns are scheduled after 
June 1. 

Dr. Iddings, whose chaplaincy office 
is at Duke University Medical Center, 
resides in Durham where he and his 
wife — the former Pauline Kuhn of 
Hickory — will continue to live. 

Dr. Iddings was born in Rowan Coun- 
ty, and was educated at Lenoir-Rhyne 
and Southern Seminary, receiving an 
honorary doctorate from Lenoir-Rhyne 
in 1958. 

His last pastorate was First Lutheran, 
Albemarle, 1965-1977. He was Secret- 
ary of the Lenoir-Rhyne Board of Trust- 
ees, 1955-1965. 

Dr. Iddings is one of the ablest and 
most respected ministers in the N. C. 
Synod. We welcome him to his new 
role with Lenoir-Rhyne.

"Personal Reflections" 

by Lois D. Snyder, President 

Lenoir-Rhyne College Alumni Association 

Lois Snyder '53 

To say that this has been a busy year 
would be a gross understatement! But you 
should know that any time I have spent 
during the year working in behalf of Lenoir- 
Rhyne College has been pure pleasure. It is 
very difficult for me to adequately express 
my deep gratitude for having had the honor 
of serving as the first woman president of 
the Alumni Association. I have been in 
touch with people at the College and alumni 
from through-out the nation on a rather 
regular basis. I am beginning to think of the 
campus as my second home — I'm there 
so often. I feel such a part of the family and 
fellowship of life on campus that I truly am 
going to miss being so closely involved, 
thank you for having the faith in me and for 
electing me as your president. 

Before I bring you up-to-date on my ac- 
tivities on your behalf, I would be remiss if I 
did not express my very special thank to 
Clarence Pugh, Evelyn Carswell and the 
rest of the Alumni Office staff for the way 
they have supported me and the 
Association committees this year. They 
have gently reminded me of things I have 
forgotten to do and we truly appreciate the 
way they have been available during ex- 
tremely busy times. Thank you, Alumni Of- 
fice, for you great support! 


was truly a thrill for me to have had the 
pleasure of representing the alumni on the 
search committee that selected Dr. Ander- 
son as our eighth president. I think we did a 
good job and we're confident that the entire 
Anderson family is winning its way into the 
hearts of the alumni and the entire college 
constituency. Let's continue to give our 
president all the support he needs to lead 
our alma mater! 

LOYALTY FUND 76 & 77 — We 
congratulate John Yoder for providing the 
leadership that enabled the Loyalty Fund to 
reach the second highest dollar total in the 
history of Lenoir-Rhyne! (The details 
covering this campaign are within the 
pages of this issue of PROFILE, so we 
won't elaborate here.) Thanks, John to you 


and your leadership teams! 

Mrs. Elsie Deaton has chaired several 
meetings in preparation for her campaign 
and with the exciting opportunity that is 
before us, as alumni, to assist the College in 
fulfilling the needs for the remainder of the 
decade, we look forward to her leadership! 
Elsie always does a good job in everything 
she undertakes! 

Valerie and Charles Deal of Hickory served 
as co-chairman of the seventh annual held 
at Lake Hickory County Club on April 1. 
There were 173 paid reservations and the 
dance was a tremendous success! Vee is 
so organized that, as usual, everything 
went off without a hitch. 

Helgi Shuford and Mrs. Anne Guthrie have 
things lined up for this May 10 event which 
will also be held at Lake Hickory Country 
Club. We're all looking forward to the 
evening and we appreciate the work of 
these gals and the seniors in making this a 
very nice and memorable occasion. 

THE GRADUATE magazine, a publication 
designed to assist seniors upon leaving 
college, has been distributed again this 
year by the Association. The book is full of 
great ideas for 'starting over' again — this 
time in the world of 'making a living'! 

ALUMNI CHAPTER -This has been 
one of the better years for chapter meetings 
and expansion — thanks to Mrs. Nancy 
Skinner! In response to my request for 
chapters to be formed in the greater 
Hickory area, (we've never had them 
before), she, Clarence and I met with alum- 
ni from some six area counties and, from 
the latest reports, it looks as if we will have 
chapters formed in some of these areas by 
the end of May. Great! 

In addition, it was great that Florida chap- 
ters met in late March for the first time in 
some five or six years! We are grateful to 
Director of Development, Dr. R. Paul 
Kercher, for his combining these meetings 
with his business trip to the annual CASE 
Conference held in Orlando. From the 

reports, these were among the best 
meetings these areas have ever had ! If your 
area hasn't had a meeting recently, contact 
your local chapter president or get in touch 
with the alumni office and express your in- 
terest and/or concern. 

TOURS — I wasn't able to make the trip 
to Russia in November, however, my son, 
Steve and his grandparents, had a mar- 
velous time! They were among some fifty 
(50) alumni and friends who were part of 
some 180 'charterees' on that particular 
trip! Everything went well and we're happy 
that Lenoir-Rhyne alumni can take advan- 
tage of low-cost travel programs. Mark your 
calendar — July 29-August 13 — tentative 
plans are for a trip to Munich-Vienna- 
Budapest. By the time you read this, you 
may have already received the details! 
Strong interest in these programs will insure 
a continuation of opportunities! 

ALUMNI DIRECTORY — I am very hap- 
py that this very special project, while star- 
ted last year, under Jay Harbinson's ad- 
ministration, was completed in such fine 
fashion. I've actually heard of alumni 
staying up all night to catch up on their 
classmates' where-abouts! It certainly 
makes for great reading and if you didn't 
reserve a copy, it may not be too late. Con- 
tact the alumni office! 

Anne Guthrie and Mrs. Jean Lineberger are 
co-chairing this committee and are fast at 
work to make May 21 a memorable day for 
all of us! In addition to a 'full' day of special 
opportunities for fellowship, they have even 
promised to try to make the program at the 
banquet "short and sweet". It looks like a 
great day — watch your mail for the details! 

Again, thank you for all your faith in this 
woman, for your support and confidence in 
any program I have tried to start. It's been a 
busy and great year. I will always remem- 
ber my presidency with pride and with 

Let's hope that I will see all of you on 
Saturday, May 21 — I'll thank you per- 
sonally! ! !

A number of cash gifts and pledges were made in 
1976 to Lenoir-Rhyne's Forward Together campaign 
in the North Carolina Synod of the Lutheran Church in 
America. We are deeply grateful for this strong support. 
In that the campaign is still is progress in some 
congregations and, for the most part, pledges were 
made through the local churches, we are refraining from 
acknowledging individual donors in this manner at this 
time lest we inadvertently omit some.

Loyalty Fund is sponsored annually by the Lenoir-Rhyne College Alumni 
Association to promote 'unrestricted' financial support. 

The 1 976 campaign had as its theme "The Spirit of L-R in 76" and raised the 
second highest amount for Loyalty Fund in the history of the program. As part 
of that campaign, donors were encouraged to increase their level of support as 
an expression of appreciation for Lenoir-Rhyne in the bicentennial year. As 
part of that recognition, two additional 'giving levels' were introduced — 
'Founders': $500-999; 'Bicentennial': $200-499. Participants at these levels 
are listed within those respective sections. 

In addition to new giving levels, special emphasis was placed on a campaign 
within the business, industrial and professional community, to seek unrestric- 
ted gifts of $1 ,000 or more. These donors appear in the section designated 
'President's Club'. 

For this special bicentennial campaign, the traditional 'Grand Patron' giving 
level was re-named 'Grand Patriot'. 

The Loyalty Fund committee expresses its gratitude to all donors — from all 
constituent groups — for continued support — support that will help to make 
Lenoir-Rhyne's educational programs stronger than ever! 

On behalf of the entire College family — faculty, administration and student 
body, we say Thanks'!

A $5.5 million budget for Lenoir- 
Rhyne College during 1977-78 was 
approved by the Board ot Trustees as 
it held its spring meeting on the college 

The Lenoir-Rhyne trustees also 
received a report on bidding for a 
proposed physical education addition 
to Shuford Memorial Gymnasium and 
heard several promising reports on 
financial support of the institution as 
part of their day-long agenda. 

Acting on a recommendation of the 
CommitteeiohFinanceand Investment, 
the Lenoir-Rhyne board approved a 
1977-78 budget of $5,559,520. The 
approved financial plan represents an 
increase of approximately $100,000 
over the current budget. 


Herman-Sipe Company of Conover 
was announced as the low bidder for 
the physical education addition, but the 
board did not award a contract at its 
meeting. Final action on the proposal 
will be taken by mid-May. 

The Conover firm submitted a bid of 
$1,765,469 with subcontractors to be 
Ingold Company, Inc., of Hickory, 
mechanical; Kenworthy Electrical 
Company, Inc., of Hickory, electrical; 
and Todd Pool builders of Charlotte, 
swimming pool. , 

Encouraging reports were offered to 
the Lenoir-Rhyne trustees on both 
voluntary support of the institution 
during 1976 and the current capital 
funds campaign in the North Carolina 
Synod of the Lutheran Church in 


Trustee O. Leonard Moretz '32 of 
Hickory, chairman of the committee on 
Promotion and Development, reported 
to the Board that Lenoir-Rhyne topped 
the $1 million mark in voluntary sup- 
port for the first time in its history 
during 1976. 

Moretz announced a total of 
$1,071,894 in voluntary giving — up 
more than $90,000 over the 1975 total. 
Leading the way to the historic first 
were restricted gifts to current funds, 
donations to endowment and building 
funds, gifts from bequests and the 
Alumni Association's 1976 Loyalty 


Lutheran Laymen's Movement coun- 
selor Clinton P. Schroeder made his 
final report on the N. C. Synod cam- 
paign. Schroeder has completed his 
work of conducting the initial phase of 
the drive, and Dr. Walter T. Nau of 
Hickory was introduced to the Board 
as the Campaign Progress Director for 
the concluding 33 months. 

The "Forward Together" campaign, 
Schroeder told the Board, has ex- 
ceeded its basic and advance goals 
while reaching a March 29 total of 
$1,518,131 in commitments. Ad- 
ditional funds are expected during the 
pledge payout period. 

Money raised in the synod drive will 
be used for a new classroom building, 
.renovation and endowment at Lenoir- 


In other business the Lenoir-Rhyne 
trustees heard reports from president 
Albert B. Anderson and a Student 
Government Association task force; 
approved proposals for lighting and 
electrical improvements on campus; 
and scheduled a July seminar. 

Included in Dr. Anderson's report was 
an announcement that an agreement 
would soon be reached for Charlotte 
Memorial Hospital to become a part of 
Lenoir-Rhyne's cooperative program in 
medical technology. The college 
currently has similar agreements with 
Presbyterian Hospital in Charlotte, as 
well as Bowman Gray School of 
Medicine and Forsyth Memorial 
Hospital, both in Winston-Salem. 

The lighting and electrical proposals 
authorized the Lenoir-Rhyne ad- 
ministration to prepare plans for ad- 
ditional lighting around campus and to 
complete needed electrical additions 
to Highland Hall. 

Scheduled for July 11 and 12, the 
Board seminar will include a study of 
institutional mission and organization. It 
was announced by trustee James R. 
Stephenson of Hickory. 




A Federal District Court ruling which 
cleared Lenoir-Rhyne College of 
discrimination charges in January, 
1976, has been upheld by a 2-1 
decision in the U.S. Court of Appeals 

for the Fourth Circuit, it was announ- 
ced recently by college officials. 

The appeal of District Judge 
Woodrow W. Jones' 1976 decision 
was filed by Dr. Annie Laurie Keyes of 
Hickory, a former Lenoir-Rhyne 
professor. She was represented in the 
Richmond, Va., appeals court by J. 
Levonne Chambers of Chambers, 
Stein, Ferguson and Becton in Char- 

In the district ruling Judge Jones 
found in favor of Lenoir-Rhyne on 
charges that it had breached Dr. 
Keyes'contract and had discriminated 
against her and all females on the 
faculty in terms of salary, benefits and 
other conditions of employment. 

As in the original suit, the appeal was 
filed against the college, its chairman 
of the Board of Trustees, Dr. Wallace 
J. Jorgenson of Charlotte, and its for- 
mer president, Dr. Raymond M Bost of 
Philadelphia, Pa. They were represen- 
ted in Richmond by W. Gene Sigmon 
of Jesse C. Sigmon, Jr., Sigmon and 
Sigmon in Newton. 

In the appeals court opinion, Chief 
Judge Haynsworth and Senior Circuit 
Judge Field discussed the basic fin- 
dings of the district court and closed 
with these words, "Discerning no error 
of fact or law, we affirm the judgment 
of the district court." 

Circuit Judge Craven filed a dissen- 
ting opinion. 





Dr. James M. Unglaube, a 
faculty member and top administrator 
at Lenoir-Rhyne College since 1967, 
has resigned as dean of the college to 

Lenoir-Rhyne Magazine 

accept the position of assistant director 
of the Department for Higher Education 
of the Lutheran Church in American. 

Dr. Unglaube left Lenoir-Rhyne in 
early April to begin his new work. 

"Dr. Unglaube's decision to join the 
Department for Higher Education 
represents a great loss to Lenoir-Rhyne 
and a great gain for the LCA," noted 
college president Dr. Albert B. Ander- 

"We wish him and his family God's 
blessings," the Lenoir-Rhyne chief 
executive concluded. 

Dr. Anderson said that plans were 
underway to effect an appropriate 
transition and eventually select a suc- 
cessor to Dr. Unglaube. 


A native of Milwaukee, Wis., Dr. 
Unglaube came to Lenoir-Rhyne in 
1 967 as an instructor in chemistry. The 
following year he was promoted to 
assistant professor, and in 1972 he 
became an associate professor in the 
same department, a rank which he 
held when he left. 

Dr. Unglaube assumed administrative 
duties in 1 970, a year which saw major 
changes in Lenoir-Rhyne's calendar 
and curriculum. The young chemistry 
professor became academic dean at 
that time and supervised the begin- 
nings of Lenoir-Rhyne's 4-1-4 calendar 
and interdisciplinary core curriculum. 

The 4-1-4 features a special one- 
month term, the Interim, sandwiched 
between two shortened semesters. It 
provides students with special oppor- 
tunities for travel, independent study 
and unusual campus courses. 

The core curriculum is designed to 
provide a broad foundation for a 
student's liberal arts education. It in- 
cludes courses in communications, 
natural science, mathematics, social 
and behavioral sciences, the 
humanities and physical education. 


In 1974 Lenoir-Rhyne's Board of 
Trustees named Dr. Unglaube dean of 
the college, a new position which en- 
compassed not only the supervision of 
the college's academic program, but 
its student life as well. 

Throughout his tenure as academic 
dean and dean of the college Dr. 
Unglaube was a leader in 
strengthening Lenoir-Rhyne's aca- 
program, both in terms of faculty and 

The Lenoir-Rhyne dean saw the per- 
centage of faculty members who hold 
earned doctorates almost double in his 

April 1977 

years at the college, and he developed 
several programs for the continuing 
development of faculty members as 
teachers and scholars. 

Dr. Unglaube also witnessed a 
significant increase in the holdings of 
Lenoir-Rhyne's library. Volumes have 
now topped the 1 00,000 mark. 

Lenoir-Rhyne also added four new 
majors in the last decade, including a 
general studies program which allows 
outstanding students to tailor majors to 
their special needs and desires. 

Dr. Unglaube joined the Lenoir-Rhyne 
faculty after completing a bachelor's 
degree at Carthage College in 
Kenosha, Wis., and a master's and 
doctorate at the University of Iowa. 


After coming to Hickory, the dean did 
post-graduate work at Harvard Univer- 
sity, completing its Institute for 
Educational Management in 1 972. 

"In ten years here in Hickory," Dr. 
Unglaube announced, "I have had the 
opportunity to become closely tied to 
Lenoir-Rhyne and the Catawba Valley 
area. Both have meant a great deal to 
my life." 

"Hickory was the first real home for 
LaRue and me," continued the dean, 
"and our children were both born here. 
Leaving it means that many dear 
relationships will be missed, but the 
challenges and excitement of a new 
position and surroundings are also in- 

"The Unglaube family," concluded 
the dean, "will always treasure its 
memories of a fine college, wonderful 
people and a great town." 




Robert A. Smith 79, a sophomore 
music major at Lenoir-Rhyne College, 
won the 7th National Organ Playing 
Competition held recently in Fort 
Lauderdale, Fla. 

The Hudson student was selected 
from among three finalists after a 20- 
minute recital at the First Presbyterian 
Church in Fort Lauderdale. He won a 
first-place award of $700. 

Smith played "Prelude and Fugue in E 
Flat Major" by Bach and "Song of Joy" 
by Langlais before a large crowd and a 
panel of judges headed by noted 
musician Dr. George Folkel. The other 
finalists, both graduate students, also 
played for 20 minutes each. 

The Lenoir-Rhyne musician was 
chosen for the national finals from 
among 29 entries. Each submitted a 
tape to the judges. 

Lenoir-Rhyne officials were excited 
about Smith's national victory. "It is 
quite a credit to Robert and our music 
program at Lenoir-Rhyne," said music 
faculty member Larry H. Lowder.

The Downfall of a King, a doctoral 
dissertation by Lenoir-Rhyne College 
faculty member Dr. Russell E. Benton, 
was published in January by the 
University Press of America in 
Washington, D.C. 

Dr. Benton's 244-page work is about 
the 1910 Portugese revolution and the 
overthrow of the monarchy which had 
existed there for eight centuries, it is 
based on research in the National Ar- 
chives and National Library in Lisbon 
and the Public Record Office and 
British Library in London. 

An assistant professor of history at 
Lenoir-Rhyne, Dr. Benton completed a 
doctor of philosophy degree at 
Louisiana State University in 1975. He 
holds a master's from Stetson Univer- 
sity and a bachelor's degree from Er- 
skine College. 

Dr. Benton is in his 11th year on the 
Lenoir-Rhyne faculty. He has also 
taught at the University of South 
Carolina and Gardner-Webb College.

Hawn '26 

Spurlock '27 

Stasavich '35 

Wells '57 

Four storied names from Lenoir-Rhyne College's 
athletic history — H. C. "Joby" Hawn '26, Albert 
Spurlock '27, the late Clarence Stasavich '35, and 
Raeford Wells '57 — were honored April 15 as the first 
inductees to the college's newly-formed Sports Hall of 

The men were recognized at the annual meeting of the 
Piedmont Educational Foundation, an organization 
which provides support for Lenoir-Rhyne's athletic 

The dinner guests were treated to an address by 
University of Tennessee head football coach Johnny 
Majors in addition to viewing the Hall of Fame awards 

Majors recently joined the Tennessee staff after being 
named the National Collegiate Athletic Association's 
1 976 Coach of the Year as head of the football program 
at the University of Pittsburgh. 

Chairman Dr. Voist R. Cromer '26, lauded the work of 
the Hall of Fame Committee which has worked for a 
number of months to establish a program to honor "in- 
dividuals who have made significant contributions to 
Lenoir-Rhyne's noteworthy athletic tradition." 

The committee includes college officials and a mem- 
ber of the Board of Trustees, as well as representatives 
of the Piedmont Educational Foundation, the Alumni 
Association and the Hickory community. 


The credentials of the first inductees to Lenoir-Rhyne's 
Sports Hall of Fame read like an athletic fairy tale. 

Hawn is a native of Catawba County who now resides 
in Winston-Salem. He graduated from Lenoir-Rhyne in 
1 926 after playing football, basketball and baseball. 

For several years Hawn tried his hand at professional 
baseball, signing a contract with the Pittsburgh Pirates 
in 1924 and playing in the Sally and Cotton State 
Leagues in 1925. In 1926 and 1927 he played for and 
managed the Hickory Rebels semi-pro baseball team. 

Hawn taught and coached for 20 years after com- 
pleting his degree at Lenoir-Rhyne. He served at 
Granite Falls High School, Marion High School and 
Reynolds High School in Winston-Salem, taking several 
of his teams to the state playoffs in various sports. 

During the same period of time Hawn worked toward a 
master of arts degree which he received from the 
University of North Carolina in 1 944. 


A football and basketball official for the Southern and 
Atlantic Coast Conferences, Hawn officiated in the 
Sugar and Cotton Bowls and twice in both the Gator and 
Dixie Bowls. Later he supervised and assigned officials 
for ACC football for nine years. 

In 1946 Hawn became Industrial Recreation Director 
for P.H. Hanes Knitting Company in Winston-Salem. He 
served in that position for 1 6 years, winning a number of 
honors for his work throughout North Carolina in the 
field of recreation. 

Taking early retirement from Hanes in 1962, Hawn 
became the first full-time Commissioner of the Carolinas 
Intercollegiate Atheltic Conference. Until his retirement 
in 1976 he also assigned and supervised football and 
basketball officials for the conference. 

In 1 970 the football officiating booklet of the Collegiate 
Commissioners Association was dedicated to Hawn, 
and recently the Carolinas Conference began awarding 
an annual cup named in his honor. 

April 1977 


Spurlock, a resident of Hickory and former official of 
the Catawba County schools, is a virtual legend in the 
annals of Lenoir-Rhyne sport. A "Charlotte Observer" 
feature of several years ago quoted veteran sports fans 
as saying he was the nearest thing to a Jim Thorpe Nor- 
th Carolina has ever produced. 

A native of Mount Cory, Ohio, where he attended high 
school, Spurlock attended Centre College in Kentucky 
before transferring to Lenoir-Rhyne in 1924. His athletic 
feats at the Hckory institution are fabled and include 
booming 90-yard punts in football, pitching one-hitters 
in baseball and breaking state track records. 

During his college days Spurlock was referred to as 
"the premier toe artist of the South," by the noted Atlan- 
ta sports journalist Ed Danforth, and in 1926 he almost 
won the state track meet single-handedly. 

After earning a bachelor of arts degree at Lenoir- 
Rhyne in 1927, Spurlock completed a bachelor of 
science at North Carolina State University. Later he 
taught and coached at Columbia University while 
earning a master's there. 


Spurlock also served in the public schools, coaching 
at Raleigh High School for several years and taking his 
teams to three state basketball championships and one 
trip to the state football finals. In 1937 he worked for 
three months as interim football coach at Lenoir-Rhyne. 

During World War II Spurlock instructed college and 
high school coaches in methods of teaching for the 
armed services. He emerged from the service with the 
rank of major. 

From 1951-1975 Spurlock served as the Educational 
Coordinator for the Catawba County Schools. He has 
won numerous awards for his services to education and 
his athletic achievements, including selections to 
"Who's Who Among School Officials" and the National 
Association of Intercollegiate Athletic's Helms Hall of 

Another athletic legend, Stasavich -was one of the 
premier football coaches and athletic directors in the 
nation until his death in 1 975. 


A native of Illinois, Stasavich first came to North 
Carolina as a student at Lenoir-Rhyne. He distinguished 
himself as both a student and athlete while earning a 
bachelor of arts degree in science. Later he added a 
master's degree from UNC-Chapel Hill. 

After his graduation from Lenoir-Rhyne, Stasavich en- 
tered the coaching ranks at Campbell College in Buies 
Creek. Three years later, in 1938, he returned to his 
alma mater as football line coach, assistant basketball 
coach and head tennis coach. 

His tennis teams won two conference championships. 

World War II interrupted Stasavich's coaching career 
in 1942. He entered the U.S. Navy and served with 
distinction in the European, Mediterranean and Pacific 
theaters as an LST commander. 

After discharge from the service in 1946, Stasavich 
returned to Lenoir-Rhyne to build the only national 
championship football team that North Carolina has 
ever produced — the 1960 Bruin squad that captured 
the NAIA title. 

In addition, Stasvich's teams won nine Carolinas Con- 
ference titles during the period 1946-1961, and they 
compiled a spectacular 1 20-37-7 record. 


In 1962 Stasavich accepted a new challenge at East 
Carolina University. His eight years as head football 
coach there marked the most successful period ever in 
the school's gridiron history. Three of his teams in suc- 
cession posted 9-1 records and won bowl games. 

A member of both the Helms Hall of Fame and the N.C. 
Sports Hall of Fame, Stasavich was twice named 
national small college coach of the year and five times 
won district honors. 

The immortal coach, known to many as "Stas," closed 
his career as athletic director at ECU. 

Wells, a native of Catawba County and graduate of St. 
Stephens High School, is considered the finest all- 
around basketball player in Lenoir-Rhyne history. 

During four years of college competition, the standout 
eager scored 2,627 points, including 810 points his 
senior year when he averaged 28.9 points per game. 
He holds the vast majority of Lenoir-Rhyne's career and 
single-season basketball records. 


Wells earned a bachelor of arts degree from Lenoir- 
Rhyne in 1957 and later completed master's degrees at 
both the University of North Carolina and the University 
of Arizona. He has been quite successful in public 
school administration and is now Superintendent of the 
Vail Public Schools in Vail, Arizona. 

A member of the Helms Hall of Fame, Wells won All- 
Conference, All-State and All-American honors at 
Lenoir-Rhyne. He was named to the NAIA first team in 
both his sophomore and senior years. 

As a prep player, Wells led St. Stephens to the state 
basketball title and was named to the All-State squad. 


The Lenoir-Rhyne College women's basketball 
team proved that it, too, was interested in 
establishing a winning tradition by defeating 
North Carolina A & T for the Division III cham- 
pionship of the NCAIAW. Final score: L-R, 
70— A &T.59. 

The victory gave the Lady Bears a 17-3 overall 
record under Coach Dale Abernathy 71 in their 
second season of intercollegiate participation. 
Last year, the team finished second in the state 

Team leaders included Christy Jones, Sally Reid 
and. Grace Sherrill, all of whom were named to 
the All-Tournament team. In addition, Sherrill 
was named to the All-Division team — the 
second year in a row she has received that

pions, the back page of this issue of PROFILE
