JIM: Lindsey enrollment at 150, 25 Aug 1938 ACN reported
President A.P. White had increased administrative load, less teaching responsibilities. And a new, unforgettable faculty, whose name will forever be a synonym for "history," at Lindsey Wilson College, arrived on campus.
One of the lead articles in the August 25, 1938 Adair County News announced the soon-to-be September opening of the fall term at Lindsey Wilson Junior College and brought forth some of the changes for the new school year.
College officials were expecting a good enrollment, "approaching 150," and on September 12th, "The usual opening day program, with Columbia citizens welcoming the incoming students" would begin at 9:30 a.m. sharp.
The new semester promised a measure of relief for President White, who for years had "carried a heavy teaching load in addition to his multitudinous administrative." In that long ago school term, he would teach only the Bible Studies curriculum. Coach Arthur T. Gullette, with post graduate work both in Sociology and Economics, would take over those courses. A new hire would take President White's History classes, as well as the French courses previously taught by Miss Mitchell Clarke, who had chosen not to return to the Lindsey hill.
The workload news for President White wasn't all rosy, however. The Educational Board of the M.E.C., S. had elected (for reasons not stated in the paper) not rehire the Registrar, Mrs. Loraine Chaney, and had given responsibility of that office to him. However, Rev. White would have the no doubt able assistance of Miss Hazel Nunn of Edmonton, who planned to be both a student and a part-time employee.
Oh. That new hire mentioned earlier? She was a native of Sturgis, Ky., just short of her 34th birthday when she arrived in Columbia. Said the News of her,
"Miss [Noma Dix] Winston graduated with an A.B. degree from Vanderbilt University, Nashville, with a major in history. She received her master's degree at the University of Chicago and has done post graduate work at the University of Kentucky."
