Union College 
Barbourville, Kentucky 


The Transition 

of the 


Mahlon A. Miller 

As usual, the Union College school year was a conflicting mixture of stability 
and change with returning upper classmen and the arrival of new students. 
However, the fall of 1982 was marked by the resignation of Dr. Mahlon A. 
Miller after 23 years of leadership as President of Union College. 

Mahlon Miller was born in Verona, Pennsylvania. He received a B.S. degree 
in Aeronautical Engineering from the University of Pittsburgh in 1943 and did 
graduate work at the Cast Institute of Technology (mathematics and engi- 
neering) and at Western Reserve University (psychology, personnel, and 
management) while he was employed by the Air Force as a civilian research 
worker from 1943-47. From 1947-53, he studied and taught at Drew Univer- 
sity, Madison, New Jersey, where he received the degrees of Bachelor of 
Divinity and Master of Sacred Theology. During these years he taught mathematics, New Testament Greek, philos- 
ophy, and religion, served as assistant to the dean of the seminary, and served a pastorate in New Jersey. He then 
attended the University of Zurich, the American School of Classical Studies in Athens, and the American School of 
Oriental Research in Jerusalem, and continued his advanced studies in theology at the University of Tubingen, as a 
member of the first group of Fulbright students in Germany. Mahlon Miller interrupted these studies to come to 
Barbourville in 1955 when he was appointed assistant to the president. In 1959, he was named president of Union 

President Miller's presence on campus acted as a catalyst for a great deal of reorganization, planning, and eventual 
growth of the college. For example, very early in his tenure, the president prepared the first issue of the Trustee 
Newsletter (June 15, 1959), an important means of communication between the campus and the trustees, which has 
appeared at least once a month and has played a notable role in involving the trustees more deeply in college affairs. 
Also, the campus was literally transformed by the projects undertaken during the 1960's. The new construction 
included an additional wing to Pfeiffer Hall, the faculty housing project known as College Park, the Physical Education 
Building, the Student Center, a new men's residence hall, and an addition to College Courts. Baldwin Place was 
remodeled and Tye House completely renovated. Plans for the most recent building on campus, the science building, 
were made during this time even though its actual construction was delayed. The Board of Trustees surprised President 
Miller with a well-deserved honor: When the building was dedicated at Commencement, 1973, it was the Mahlon Miller 
Science Center. 

On September 23, 1982, Dr. Miller resigned from the presidency and chancellorship of the college. However, he 
offered to continue as president emeritus and work out of Louisville part-time, raising funds for the college, until May 
31, 1983. In the meantime, a Central Management Team was appointed to direct the college. The team was made up 
of Edward H. Black, Director of Institutional Planning and Evaluation, as Chairman, with Robert D. Carey, Executive 
Vice-President; Dwight C. Stewart, Dean of the faculty; H. Warren Robbins, Dean of Graduate Academic Affairs; Boyd 
R. Todd, Business Manager and Treasurer; and Milton H. Townsend, Vice-President for College relations and 
Development, as members. 

The Reverend Dr. Jack Carter Phillips, former president of The National United Methodist Foundation for Christian 
Higher Education in Nashville, Tennessee, was elected president of Union College at a called meeting of the Board of 
Trustees of Union College in Lexington, Kentucky, on December 9, 1982. Dr. Phillips, who is 48, began his duties on 
January 3 on the campus where he received an honorary Doctor of Law Degree in 1981. Dr. Phillips earned the 
Bachelor's Degree at Birmingham-Southern College and the Master of Divinity Degree at Vanderbilt University. 

The inevitability of change has touched Union College once again in the 1982-83 year. Mahlon Miller and his wife, 
Laura, had quickly gained the liking and esteem, not only of the Trustees but also of the faculty and students, when 
they first came to Union. Likewise, Jack Phillips and his wife, Juanita, have already won many of the hearts which lie 
close to Union College. And so, as history seems to repeat itself in this sense, Union can look hopefully to a new future 
of planning, reorganization, and growth built upon the firm foundation which has already been laid. 

Jack C. Phillips 




After 23 years, President Mahlon A Miller resigned as president of Union College. 

Dr Milier came to Union in 1955 as assistant to the president. In 1959, he was appointed president. 

Dr Miller has been a friend to the student and a leader to the campus Because of this, the 1983 
Stespean staff dedicates this yearbook to Dr Mahlon A. Miller.

The Union College Soccer Team finished the season by placing third in their division at the state championship tournament. In contrast to last year's 
overall winning record, the team finished this year with an overall 4-7 season record. 

The Bulldogs lost several players to graduation before fall 1982. Only seven of the 17 members of the Union squad had played college soccer before. 
Out of the other 10 new players, only three had ever played soccer. Adding to the obstacle of inexperience were injuries to the team's two leading 
scorers, Mohammad Jahangiri and Stephen Nagbe. 

"I was pleased with the way our season turned out even though we had some trouble getting started," Coach Inkster said. "I think after the first 
couple of games we began to play better as a team and learned from our mistakes." 

Coaches Larry Inkster and Drew Pringle agree that with a year of experience behind the 

. things will only get better for Union College soccer next

The Union College Men's Basketball Team ended their 1982-83 with an overall record of 13-15. The Bulldogs finished their conference record at 8- 

The Bulldogs were led in scoring and assists by sophomore guard Al Gover. Gover also led the KIAC Conference in assists, averaging 7.1 a game and 
averaged over 15 points a game. Guy Carter, a senior center, led the team and conference in rebounding. Averaging 11.2 rebound, a game. Carter 
made the KIAC all-conference team. 

The team as a whole averaged 74.9 points per game and shot over 50%. One of the highlights of the season was the Bulldogs' victory over Berea 
College by a score of 76-75. Union also used the good ol' Bulldog bite on LMU in their last home game, winning 84-83 in overtime. This game was 
particularly memorable because it was the last home game for Coach Pete Moore. 

Coach Moore was pleased with the enthusiasm of the students and faculty, which was better this year than in previous years. He was also impressed 
by the turnout of Union fans at the KIAC tournament held at Berea. The team's play was greatly influenced by this kind of support.

The added responsibilities Pete Moore has acquired during the past 
ten years cut into the time he could put into coaching the Union 
College Men's Basketball Team. "We need to bring someone new in 
and break them down a little," he said. 

When Moore took over as head coach prior to the 1962-63 season, his 
only duty besides coaching was teaching. Since then, he has become 
the Union College Athletic Director and the Head of the Department 
of Health and Physical Education. He will remain as Athletic Director 
and Head of the Department of Health and Physical Education so that 
the new coach will have more time with his players. He said, "I've been 
thinking about it for several years. It is not just something that has 
come up out of the blue." 

Moore said 21 seasons of coaching is enough. "You don't do some- 
thing for 21 years and not miss it some. But I think the basketball 
program needs some new blood — a younger, enthusiastic person, so 
that they can have a better program." 

Dr. and Mrs. Pete Moore pose for their picture commemorating his 20 
years of coaching.

The Lady Bulldogs ended their 1982-83 season with an overall record of 11-16, 3-8 in the conference. They finished as runners-up in the KWIC 
Tournament with players Regina Hubbard and Billie Cornett making KWIC All-Tournament Team 

By the end of the season, freshman Virgella Combs led the Lady Bulldogs in scoring and rebounding. She averaged 14.7 points a game and 7.8 
rebounds per game. Following Combs was sophomore Regina Hubbard, who averaged 11.6 points and 4.8 rebounds per game. Sophomore Billie 
Cornett averaged 9.4 points and 5.7 rebounds per game, despite missing much of the early season due to a lower back injury. Another sophomore. 
Sherry Caudill, averaged seven points and 4.6 rebounds per game while sophomore guard Lisa Johnson contributed five points and led the team in 
assists, averaging 3.7. 

As a team, the Lady Bulldogs a/eraged 43.3% from the field and 60.9% at the line. Union averaged 68.5 points and 35 rebounds per game. 

The Lady Bulldogs will be graduating only three seniors. With eight sophomores and three freshmen returning. Coach Karen Fishbaugh is viewing 
next year with optimism. "The girls coming back next year can form the nucleus of a good team, along with a couple of good recruits."

The Union College Bullfrogs finished the season with a 2-8 record. This 
year's team captain was third-year member Byron Walker, who re- 
ceived the Kathy Brick Memorial Award and holds the school record in 
the 500 freestyle. 

The Bullfrogs completed the 1983 season at the State Swim Cham- 
pionship Meet. Even though Union did not finish high in overall scor- 
ing, Coach Drew Pringle said he was pleased with his team's effort. "I 
thought our swimmers did a real good job and represented the college 
well. We are still in the early stages of building a strong swimming 
program here and I think we're off to a good start."

The Union College Tennis Team finished their regular season with a 2- 
12-1 record. On Thursday, April 28, Union participated in the KIAC 
Tournament at Clinch Valley College with Johnson and Jackson win- 
ning at #2 doubles. It was the only victory for the Bulldogs after 
drawing #1 and #2 seeds in the singles draw. "We drew some tough 
opponents," Coach Allen Green said, "but we played some good 
matches against real tough opponents We only lost one match out of 
the ones we should have won." 

Union had to overcome bad weather all through April. Coach Allen 
Green attributes their inconsistent play to this. "It's been disappointing 
recordwise, but I think the guys have really improved a lot, particularly 
given all the practices and matches we have missed due to bad 
weather," he said.

Combining speed and power, the 1983 edition of Bulldog Baseball was one of the most exciting in recent years- After starting out very slowly, playing 
below .500 for much of the season, the Bulldogs finished strongly, winning their last nine games. These nine victories qualified them for the National 
Association of Intercollegiate AKIL (NAIA) District 32 Playoff and also earned them at least a tie for the K1AC. 

The season began with two trips to Alabama, one during spring break and the other a weekend trip later in March, which saw the Bulldogs come in 
second in the University of Montivallo Baseball Classic. This tough early-season competition laid the foundation for the type of baseball the Bulldogs 
would have to play later in the season. 

During their final nine games, the Bulldogs scored 116 runs, had 114 hits, hit 15 home : 
team record of .327, hit 41 home runs, and stole 124 bases in 142 attempts. 

i and stole 52 bases. For the season, the Bulldogs hit , 

Their final record of 20-15 included records of 12-4 in the conference and 15-7 in the district. It was a very exciting year indeed for the fans who 
watched the home runs fly out of the Recreation Park.

The 1983 softball season got off to a slow start due to bad weather and to losses in several close games. However, the Lady Bulldogs played well the 
latter part of the season, winning nine of their last fourteen games. They finished the season with a 9-17 record and placed fourth in the KWIC 

Jana Angel and Billie Cornett had fine performances in the outfield, and Regina Hubbard and Tammie Perkins did excellent pitching jobs. Felicia 
Pembleton led the team in hitting with a batting average of 394 Lisa Johnson was selected to the KWIC All Tournament Team for her fine offensive 
and defensive play
