Description

Cover Story, "The Smith Years: 1946-1960"

It was 1957. Olin Atkins defeated Herbie O'Mell for the position of Student Government Association president, Sarah Hammer was Homecoming queen and Coach Bob Vanatta's Tiger basketball squad played in the NIT. Alpha Gamma Delta took sorority honors in All-Sing and Preston " Buzz" Ford directed Kappa Alpha to frat honors. But even more significant, Memphis State College became Memphis State University. J. Milliard Smith discusses events surrounding Memphis State's drive to gain university status and his years as MSU president.

Part-time adult students at Memphis State have their own special place and special friend this fall as the Adult Resource Center begins operation. The Adult Resource Center, operated through the Office of Public Service and Continuing Education, is under the direction of Ted Weber.
