OGDEN BROS. & CO., PRINTERS AND BINDERS,
The Alumni Association of the College of Liberal Arts of
U. S. Grant University, at its Annual Session, May 22nd, 1895,
in Athens, Tennessee, took action favoring the publication of
a General Catalogue and Record of the Graduates at Athens
since the founding of the University. The following were
appointed a committee with power to act in the proposed pub-
lication: D. A. Bolton, J. W. Bayless, H. B. Case, W. F.
McCarron, W. A. Wright. The committee thus constituted,
after a series of meetings, proceeded to collect material for
this Record, and appointed D. A. Bolton as editor of the same.
Tills work was coinmenced in 1895, and completed August,
1896. The causes of delay will be appreciated when it is con-
sidered that the committee had no fund to pay current ex-
penses, that it has been impossible to find tlie post-offices of a
few alumni, and to get any responses to circulars sent to
some others. This accounts for the absence of facts in connec-
tion with a few names in this pamphlet.
The thanks of the committee, and especially of the editor,
are hereby tendered to all who have in any way aided in the
publication of this Record.

A Statement and a Plea.
We now have thirty years of history behind us. This Record will show
that our alumni are scattered over many States, and are successfully pur-
suing various avocations. All have not attained wealth and fame, Ijut
most are enjoying a competence of this world's goods ; and, with scarcely an
exception, by a life of industry and Integrity, they are reflecting honor on
their alma mater. But a new generation has sprung up since we ended our
college days— among them our own children. The work of Chrlsilan edu-
cation must be carried forward; and In this, the University expects the
co-operation and support of her alumni. My brothers and sisters, a united
move on our part along the line of endowment, will give an Impetus to the
work that must result In the pei'manent establishment and enlargement
of the school. Many have already responded, and we trust all will count
It a privilege to do something. Notes may be given In denominations of
$100 and upward, the interest payable annually, and the principal In easy
Installments. Blank notes and further Inforrnatlon will be furnished on
application. Fraternally yours,
W. A. WRIGHT,
