The story of the first fifty years of ^est Virginia Wesleyan 
College was concluded in the spring of the year, 1940, so that the 
publication would be ready for distribution during the approaching 
commencement season in early June. The subsequent period, or 
SIXTH DECADE, may be counted as comprising ten years beginning where 
the former one ended. 

A comprehensive survey of the conditions prevailing then as 
related to the College reveals a very gradual recovery from the 
economic nose-dive of the late twenties and early thirties. The 
forty percent cut in salary sustained by the faculty and other 
employees of the College was beginning to be relieved by slight 
increases of from three to five percent calculated on the 1930 basis. 

Whatever the final judgment of historians as to the influence 
of the New Deal on recovery, it was at least different, and its 
difference could be made the basis for hope and optimism. President 
McCuskey was an optimist. With the support of the College Board of 
Trustees he planned the College Semi-Centennial Financial Campaign, 
the goal of which was a half-million dollar s. The proceeds of the 
campaign were to be used, (l) to liquidate existing Indebtedness, 

(2) to restore endowment losses due to depression shrinkages, and 

(3) to improve the general welfare of the College. This campaign, 
incomplete, was approaching its climax when the former annals went 
to press.

Plans for the campaign were being laid in the middle thirties. 
Former President, W. B. Fleming, of Wesleyan College, (1915-1922), 
would complete his fifteenth year as President of Baker University 
at Baldwin, Kansas, in 1937» fi t which time, it was agreed, he would 
come to Buckhannon to organize and direct the campaign. He was 
given the title of Vice President of the College, and the green 
light to proceed. 

At this point our survey should take note of some new factors 
and forces affecting the general welfare. Man proposes, but it 
isn't always God that disposes. In this case it was his opposite, 
Hitler. The war drums of Europe were sounding, and we were becoming 
alerted to the dangers of a new, second global conflict. Economic 
reaction to such dangers is always sensitive and prompt. Tne only 
moderately well-to-do will retrench by reducing their philanthropies 
to insure their own personal economic security. We do not blame 
them for this attitude, we commend them. 

Dr. Fleming will give us the story of this, and a subsequent 
campaign, the "Greater V/esleyan" in his own language and figures. 
But, whatever the results, we may be sure that to attain the goal, 
required greater time and effort because of the existing economic 
uncertainties. (See article- "TEN YEARS OF FINANCIAL PROGRESS") 


When West Virginia Wesleyan College was approaching its Semi- 
centennial year, its financial situation was difficult. The great 
depression had seriously affected it. General mortgage bonds in the 
amount of $36,000 were outstanding; the bonded debt against the Agnes 
Howard Hall was $91,000 plus a large amount of past due interest; 
then there was a serious total of unsecured debts outstanding. The 
sum of all these obligations was approximately $250,000. 

At that time Dr. Roy McCuskey was President of the College and 
Dr. Wallace B. Fleming was Vice President. Under their guidance the 
Semi-Centennial Movement was launched. Wesleyan College entered into 
a contract with the Mellon Trust Company of Pittsburgh by which the 
Trust Company became investment adviser of the College and custodian 
of its endowment funds. 

In the Semi-Centennial Campaign the first objective was the 
liquidation of all debts of the College. The general mortgage bonds 
and the unsecured obligations had been met, and $2/j.,000 had been paid 
on the claim against the Agnes Howard Hall, when Mr. Antnony McCue, a 
very efficient member of the Board of Trustees, evolved and promoted 
a plan that received tne hearty cooperation of all members of the 
Board, and that completed the clearing up of all claims against the 
Agnes Howard Hall. Thus the College became free of debt. 

These Agnes Howard Hall bonds had been issued when the new 
annex was built in 1928. It should not be Inferred that the addition 
to this Hall was a burden to the College in the difficult years of 


the depression. The trutn Is that the annex produced revenue every 
year, but the income had to be applied to the operating funds of the 

The first major gift to the College in the decade now closing 
was that of Mr. Calvin A, V.est. Mr. West was a native of West 
Virginia; he spent one year of his boyhood in Buckhannon. He became 
a very successful business man in Cleveland, Detroit, and St. Louis. 
At the end of his business career, he and Mrs. V.'est made their home 
in Orlando, Florida. 

Mr. West had been actively interested in helping young people to 
attend College; and, being an ardent Methodist and very loyal to his 
native state, he decided to establish a fund, that would ultimately 
serve as an endowed scholarship fund at West Virginia Wesleyan College, 
By the terms of his will the securities are now held by a trust company 
in Cleveland, Ohio. The income goes to certain relatives while they 
live. When this purpose has been served, the money will become a part 
of the permanent endowment of the College and will be known as the 
Calvin A. West Scholarship Fund. The amount is $200,000. 

After the death of Mr. West, Mrs. West became deeply interested 
in Wesleyan College. She was a frequent visitor on the campus. 

Within a short t^me she was made a member of the Board of Trustees. 
Her deepening interest led to a desire to join in her husband's bene- 
factions to the institution. In the summer of 1948, Mrs. West left 
a bequest to the College of $100,000 to be used in the erection of 
a chapel on the campus. This building will be known as the Calvin 
A. West Memorial Chapel. 


Dr. Joseph V.arren Broyles became president of the College in 
September, 1942, and served a little longer then three years, at his 
solicitation Mrs, Annie Merner Pfeiffer of New York agreed to give 
$100,000 for a library building to be known as the Annie iwerner Pfeiffer 
Library. Dr. Broyles dieo. in September, 1945i 8n(i dTS * Pfeiffer in the 
following spring. 

In her will Mrs. Pfeiffer left a substantial amount of money to 
the Board of Education of the Methodist Church for distribution. From 
this source, upon the recommendation of Dr. John 0, Gross, Secretary 
of the Board of Education, the College is receiving ?50.000 to be 
aadea to tne $100,000 from the estate, making a total of $150,000 for 
the Annie Werner Pfeiffer Memorial Library. 

Mrs. Lawson L. Loar of Clarksburg decided, to provide for a Hall 
of Music at Vest Virginia V.'esleyan College. In her will she bequeathed 
to the College the largest single gift it has yet received. The 
securities are valued at $275i000. Of this amount .$100,000 is for 
erecting the building ana the balance is to be held as a permanent 
endowment fund, the interest of whicn is to be used for the maintenance 
of the Loar Memorial Hall of Music. 

Mr. L. C. Shingleton of Clarksburg, for many years a member of 
the Board of Trustees of the College, died in April, 1948. By the 
terms of his will he left a sum of more than $100,000 in trust for 
'..est Virginia '.7esleyan College. The income of this fund will go to 
Mrs. Shingleton during her life time; the fund will then become a part 
of the permanent endowment fund of the College. 


Other bequests received during the decade are: wrs. Susan 
B. Darby of Elkins, .$25,000; Mr. George Loar, Oakland, Maryland, 
$15,000; Miss Lavlna Gump, McCurdysvllle, ;>4»000; Mrs. Susan M. Davis, 
Parkersburg, $8,570; Miss Gertrude Sharps, Buckhannon, $1(000; tors, 
L. Sj Page, Buckhannon, $1,000; Miss Olive Leonard, Buckhannon, ^2,000. 

During the presidency of Dr. Broyles, Judge Harry Shaw of Fairmont 
proposed that an effort be made to secure $100,000 in cash to apply on 
the cost of one of the two dormitories included In the development 
plan of the College. Judge Shaw finally consented to act as chairman 
of a committee to secure this fund. This movement reached its full 
goal less than two weeks after the death of Dr. Broyles. 

At once Judge Shaw cnallenged tne members of the Board to join 
In securing a like amount as a part of tne cost of the second Dormitory 
for ..en, The challenge was accepted and the goal of 4>100,000 was 
reached early in the administration of President William J. Scarborough, 
wno became president of tne College in September, 194^« 

In this summary must be included bequests and gifts that have 
added $100,000 to the endowment funds in the custody of the Mellon 
Trust Company. 

To these financial gains should be added tne cost of the Residence 
for the President of the College; construction and equipment of the 
Edna Jenkins Home Economics House and the Home Soonom^os Laboratory; 
the cost of the new College Work Shop Building; the improvement s in 
the Gymnasium; the value of the Student Union Building, end the Barracks; 
the amount spent for new books in the Library. 

j.side from the sum of all gifts received and used to clear the 

College of debt, the capital gains of the decade may he listed as

♦Because these two items are not now 
working directly for the College, a 
deduction should be charged against 
them in appraising their present worth 
to the College. One-third would seem 
to be a fair deduction. 

Hence, subtract 100.000 



On a cold, and disagreeable day in early March, 1943« a representa- 
tive group of students, faculty, and citizens of Buckhannon assembled at 
the railroad station to welcome the contingent of officers and trainees 
destined to be organized as the 49*h College Training Detachment 
(Aircrew). The young men had entrained in Florida a day or two earlier 
without knowing their destination. As they marched up the street 
through the chilly air one of them called to a near-by student on the 
sidewalk, "Hey, Buddy, is this the North Pole?" 

In almost frantic haste the College had been made ready to receive 
them. To give them living room and staff offices, Agnes Howard Hall had 
been vacated by its regular tenants who found other accommodations off 
the campus, additional classrooms had been created by appropriating 
available spaces in the Music Hall, the Gymnasium and elsewhere; and 
some of the classrooms already in use were made to serve through one or 
two more class periods a day. 

For more direct approach to their classrooms some cinder patns were 
made on the campus for use by the cadets. It is interesting to note that 
in a few instances the new concrete walks are located on sections of 
those cinder paths, 

The modified front entrance to the Gymnasium making a direct approach 
to the basomant aess hall is an alteration identified with the Aircrew 
servic-v . •;* nav obvious feature is the dovi/nward stairway on the right 
as one enters. To make this alteration workable and convenient several 
other basement changes had to be made, but we leave these to the 
imagination of the reader. 


As a phase of the work the College authorities negotiated the 
exclusive use of the flying field on Brushy Fork for the duration of 
the 49th unit's period of training here for combat service. 

The aircrew unit was divided into three or four sections based upon 
their attainment in preparation for army service. .hen the top section 
was witndrewn for service or for more advanced training elsewhere, the 
others were promoted in turn, and a new group with home addresses ranging 
from the Atlantic to the Pacific and from the Canadian border to the 
Gulf entered at the bottom. 

Paralleling the training of men for the air combat service was that 
of xi ides to draftmen, engineers and chemists at Wright Field, Dayton, 
Ohio. These included botn young men and young women who were given 
intensive training through several weeks for one or another of the 
objectives named, *. short intensive course was given later, also, for 
cadet nurses in training at St, Mary's Hospital, Clarksburg, V. Va. 

These three types of service rendered by the College to the 
Government in time of war were not integrated. The training of aircrew 
cadets began in March, 1943t e n a ended in June, 1944« The training 
of Wright Field Aides began about three months earlier and continued 
till the end of the war. The course for cadet nurses was given during 
the summer sessions of 1944 fi nd 1945« 

The numbers registered and taking training in these several 
services were : 

Cadet Nurses 78 

Wright Field Aides 487 

Aircrew Cadets 774 


W;ostly the courses given for tnese special services were college 
courses modified as military educational directors suggested, to meet 
the needs of the trainees. 


The physical expansion of the College through the decade is note- 
worthy. There was the purchase of one property, the 126 Pocahontas 
Street residence, now the home of the College President. This purchase 
was made in the year 1943 or thereabout. It is a better building than 
either of the other two owned by the College and formerly used for this 

The Maintenance Building is the most recent of the structures 
erected on the campus. It is located north-east of the Science Hall, 
the intervening distance being near 200 feet. It is a one-story 
building of convenient height, with a concrete floor space of about 
40 X 100 feet. It houses equipment sucn as truck, tractor, other heavy 
machinery, and a variety of supplies. It also provides shop room where 
the maintenance crew can carry on their in-door work. 

The rear exit made to the College Auditorium during the summer and 
autumn of 1949 is a noteworthy improvement. 

The other construe if ons made since the beginning of the decade are 
featured in tha annual catalog, and from it we quote. 

"The Home Economics Cottage, dedicated November 19i 1942. is the 
generous gift of an alumna, Miss Edna Jenkins, of Petroleum, West 
Virginia. This two-story brick cottage with complete modern equipment 
is designed to afford excellent opportunities for actual practice in 
home management. It is located on Barbour Street near Agnes Howard Hall, 



"Housing Unit I consists of five buildings erected by the Federal 
Public Housing Authority for housing unmarried veterans while in 
residence at the College. This unit, located on the campus near Raymond 
Science Hall, houses 74 men. 

Dining facilities are provided in the College Dining Room. Rooms 
are furnished, except for linens, blankets, rugs, and curtains." 

The approximate date of this construction, as also the next, was 
the year, 194-6* 


"Housing Unit II consists of eight buildings erected by the Federal 
Public Housing Authority for housing veterans with families while in 
residence at the College. This unit, located on the campus at Meade 
Street and Camden Avenue, contains 32 apartments. 

Each apartment consists of a living room, a bed room, a kitchen, 
and a bath. All apartments are furnished, except for linens, blankets, 
rugs, curtains, china, silver, and kitchen utensils, but may be rented 
unfurnished. " 


"The Student Center is a large one-story structure erected by the 
Federal Vorks Administration to provide additional facilities at the 
College. Located on the campus between the Gymnasium and Housing Unit 
II, this building houses a large lounge, fountain service, snack bar, 
recreation room, the book store, a number of offices, and the health 
center. " 


The construction of the Student Center awaited, more or less, the 
completion of the housing units, and followed immediately. It may be 
a matter of interest that this building was one previously used in war- 
time activities at Point Pleasant, taken down in sections, trucked to 
the Wesleyan campus and reassembled. 


"Four new buildings are to be erected soon on the campus of West 
Virginia Wesleyan College. They are to be a RESIDENCE HALL FOR MENj a 
LIBRARY, a gift of the late Annie Merner Pfeiffer, of New York City; a 
HALL OF IViUSIC AND FINE ARTS, a gift of the late Mrs. Lawson L. Loar, of 
Clarksburg, West Virginia; and a CHAPEL, a gift of the late Mrs. Calvin 
A. West, of Orlando, Florida. Construction is expeoted to begin in 195°« 


During the past few years, say from 1947 to the present time, 1950, 
the writer of this narrative has observed with quiet satisfaction the 
functioning of the organization bearing the above title. 

An element of his interest lies in the fact that nearly thirty years 
ago he was related to one of the earliest adventures of this kind in 
Wesleyan College. We called it a program of student government. The 
inner circle that sparked its activities was called the STUDENT COUNCIL. 
Its basic conception was that self-discipline is the only sort of 
discipline that grows moral fiber culminating in strong character. 

Inquiry reveals that this early organization with few functions 
and limited activities continued into the early forties. About 1943i 
under the leadership of President Broyles, it underwent a reorganization 
that enlarged and diversified its activities. Again in 1948 in 
President Scarborough's administration, the area of its responsibilities 
and activities was further enlarged. 

The functions of the "Student Union", an organization whose spon- 
sorship is credited to Dr. Hyma, are now exercised by the Student Union 
Committee of the Community Council. 

The constitution of the Community Council is a well-written 
document revealing statesmanship on the part of it6 author whose identity 
is not known to this writer. We congratulate him in absentia, as it 
were. The co-operation of students, faculty, and administration as 
implied in the constitution, for the attainment of a common goal, is a 
fine piece of work. 


Spurred on by a desire to establish the historical beginning of 
the Student Council, ana aided by a vague memory that the early twenties 
was the time; we found that its organization was effected in the school 
year 1922-23 with Odar A. Watson as its first president. The names of 
the other members of the Council for that year have not been established. 

The year-book for 1923-24 (called the 1925 Murmurmont is) contains 
pictures of the members of the Student Council for that year, but with- 
out their names. We identify them as follows: 

Brown, Eva, (Secretary) 

Harold, Denton M u 

Sort on, Msvcia-Mae, (Mrs. Dr. Glauner) 

Lou.iin, John J. 

ttoorst John H. , (Vice President) 

Parr is, Ra+h 

Pauley, Hale, (President) 

Roger s, Lu:-.:e 

Samu'.es, Ressie 

Shevsr, Floyd 

Westfall, Nevah, (Mrs. Logan Wilson) 

The year-book indicated above contains the following; statement of 
the Council's objectives: 

"The Student Representative Council has now completed its first 
full year of work. (Writer's comment --The First year was not quite full, 
the organization having been effected after the opening of the year 
1922- '23. The use of the word, FULL, is of very questionable propriety, 
1923-'24 was, in reality, the second year). It has been a successful 
and progressive year in many ways. The aim has always been to co- 
operate with the faculty in every possible way, and this has been under- 
taken by means of various joint committees from the faculty and the 
Student Council. 


The first steps toward assuming a small degree of student govern- 
ment were taken when the following proposition was presented by the 
Student Council to the student body and adopted by them:- 'The students 
shall be responsible for the aesthetic care of the buildings, "campus 
polish", and the enforcement of the honor system'. 

The Student Council may well be considered the most vital organiza- 
tion in school because of its direct interest in all other organizations. 
With the start made this year, it should be able to undertake many more 
projects in the future which will work toward a better Wesleyan. " 
The following are members of the Council for the year 1949-1950:- 

William Thomas Gwennap, Dorothy Jean Burton, Raymond Jackson 
Campbell, Julia Beatrice Cheng, Helen Marie Cronin, George Franklin 
Emery, Jr., Mr. Hallam, Dean Hupp, Robert Paul Lisensky, Mr. Lockard, 
Eldon Keith Mailing, William Myers, President Scarborough, Dean 
Schoolcraft, William Cornor Thomas, II, Albert Eugene Tomer, Miss Wilson. 

The nature and coverage of the Council's activities may be 
reasonably well evaluated if one considers the number, and the names, of 
its standing committees. Seven of these are joint committees of students 
and faculty. Numbers 4 and 9 fi re composed of students only. 

They are:- 1. Awards;- 2. Conduct;- 3. Cultural Enrlchment;- 
4. Fraternities;- 5» House Government;- 6. Publications;- 7» Religious 
Activities;- 8. Social Activities;- 9. Student Union. 


A paper found among the files in the office of Dr. J. E. Judson, 
Professor of Biology in Wesleyan College from 1929 to 1949 1 sheds light 
upon the beginning of the collection of specimens bearing the above title. 
We quote from this paper the following:- "In November 1948 I was approached 
by Senator G. 0. Young, of Buckhannon, concerning the establishment of 
a Museum at lest Virginia Wesleyan College. Senator Young explained that 
he would be glad to donate the mounted animal heads he obtained from his 
various hunting trips into Alaska and Canada. He was of the opinion 
also that friends of his would be glad to add to the collection. A 
meeting was arranged with Dr. W. J. Scarborough, President of the College. 
The plans submitted by Senator Young were acceptable to the President 
and a board was immediately appointed consisting of B. I. Hudkins, M. D. , 
Wolf Summit, Robert G, Kelly, Charleston, Dr, J. E. Judson, Buckhannon, 
and Senator Young, who was to act as chairman. 

Dr. Hudkins donated more than sixty specimens of mounted heads, skins, 
and curios obtained during his travels \n Africa, the Holy Land, and 
Canada. Mounted heads and skins, 31 specimens, were taken in the Kenya- 
Tanganyika region of equatorial Africa, in 1937-38." 

Further facts about the beginning of the Museum have been gleaned 
from the College Bulletin for May, 1949:- The formal opening of the 
Museum, located on the seoond floor of Haymond Science Hall, was held 
at 8:00 p.m. Saturday, April 30, 1949* There were two outstanding 
features of the opening. 


(1) Five reels of colored movies were shown in Atkinson Chapel to 
acquaint the audience with the territory where many of the trophies from 
Africa were obtained on special hunting expeditions. The pictures were 
made by Dr. Hudkins and include his itinerary from New York to the Kenya 
and Tanganyika Colonies in Africa and a trip to the Holy Lend, 

(2) Following the movies a formal dedicatory ceremony was held in the 
Chapel. The College was host at a reception in Agnes Howard Hall 
immediately afterwards, during which time small parties of guests were 
taken on conducted tours through the Museum, 

The Kelly collection consists of seven mounted heads of animals 
taken in North America by the donor. 

The Young contribution to the Museum includes:- (1) A moose taken 
on the headwaters of the Mirimache River, Province of New Brunswick; 
(2) A large caribou taken in 1919 on the headwaters of Generic River, 
Yukon Territory, Canada; (3) A smaller caribou taken in 1919 on Little 
Boundary Creek, a tributary of the White River, Alaska; (4) A Dall 
sheep taken on the headwaters of Harris Creek 1n the Yukon Territory. 

Hilleary Andrew, of Buckhannon, donated a large mounted bobcat, 
the symbol by which Wesleyan athletic teams are known in intercollegiate 

A large room on the second floor of the Science Hall has been 
redecorated and turned over to the Museum Board to be used for housing 
the specimens. The heads and skins have been arranged on the walls in 
such a manner as to make them easily accessible for study. A large show 


oase has been made available for the display of the smaller trophies 
and curios. The Museum is now available for study and observation by 
the students of the College, the various visiting high school and grade 
school classes, and the general public. 

Mr. Byron Arnold of the biology staff has been named, shall we say, 
'Curator', of the Museum, as the successor of Dr. Judson in that capacity. 


The writer digresses here to clarify some confusion regarding the 
residences of the College Presidents, 

The campus house behind the spruce trees, opposite the end of 
Sedgwick Street, was built by President Hutchinson, (See College History, 
page 67) and was the home of all the Presidents from I892 till the end 
of President Fleming's administration In 1922. College Avenue House 
No. 68 at the corner of Sedgwick was aoqulred by purchase In the year 
I923, and was occupied In turn by Presidents Cutshall, Wark, McCuskey, 
and Broyles- 1923 to 1943. 

President Broyles vacated the No. 68 College /.venue House In 1943 
as a part of his plan to house students displaced by the Aircrew. For 
some months thereafter, until the purchase of the present home at 
126 Pocahontas Street, he lived In rented property, first at 22 Meade 
Street, then at 66 S. Kanawha Street, the Colonel J. S, Withers property. 

From July I890 till the spring of I892, President Hutchinson, his 
wife and one or both young sons, depending upon the date of the birth 
of the second, lived part or, perhaps all of the time in rooms or an 
apartment in the Plfer home above the driveway leading now from Kanawha 
Street to the Whitescarver-Rundlo funeral home. 

Mrs. U. G, Young, Sr. , nee Lillle Pifer, contributes an interesting 
confirmation of the Hutchinsons' residence in the Plfer home: 

"I remember, Capt, Poundstone brough him up to the house and he and 
Mrs. Hutchinson lived there quite some time. Mark (Hutchinson) was a 
baby less than a year old, as I remember. 


Dr. Trotter met him (Hutchinson) first at our house, and, I've 
no doubt, you did too. 

If I am not mistaken Lillie Trotter (Lillie Steele) was spending 
that afternoon with me. We were quite excited about meeting the new 
President of Wesleyan. Little did we think she would be so closely 
identified with the College as she afterward became." (As the wife of 
Dr. Trotter.) 

Acting Presidents have, in all cases, lived In their own properties. 


If, in August at the end of the Summer School, or in January at the 
end of the first half-year, you completed the requirements for a bachelor's 
degree; and if you had to await the formality of graduation till the next 
commencement in iviay or June, when your program may call for your presence 
in Timbuctu or Reykjavik; or if the promise of a coveted opportunity in 
New York, New Haven, or New Orleans can not become effective before the 
degree has been conferred; the delay becomes a serious handicap. The 
counter to such a handicap is a degree of promptness in keeping with the 
electronic age in which we live. The single annual commencement has been 
consigned to the limbo of the horse -and -buggy days, and in it 6 place we 
now have three programs of graduation, one for each of the three sessions. 

The following tabulation has been prepared to disclose, (l) the im- 
mediate effect of war-time conditions on college welfare; and (2) to date 
the beginning of the era of conferring baccalaureate degrees at the end 
of each College Session.

The aim in the following list is to present the names of all members 
of the Board of Trustees, either active or emeritus, beginning with the 
appointees for the year 1940, and ending with those appointed in 1949* 
Some of them were already veterans in the service of the College at the 
beginning of the decade and are still carrying on. 

We may have made some mistakes following through the alterations 
growing out of the church unification In the early forties. If you find 
any 6uch, please excuse them on the ground that they were made without 
malice in an honest effort to be correct. 

The names of the members are arranged in the chronological order of 
their first appointments on the Board. 

Within the appointments made in any one year, the names are arranged 
alphabetically for that year. 

The first, of the two columns of figures on the right, indicates the 
date of first appointment, or the beginning of the "emeritus" relation to 
the Eoard. 

The figures, if any, in the second solumn, indicate the year when 
the appointee's active service ceased, or the year to which his latest 
appointment extends. 

The names of the present active members of the Board, (April 1950) 

are denoted by an inset of a few spaces to the right.
