rs. Mosier collects antiques, enjoys getting to know students "Beginning Typing is my favorite class," she said with a laugh. "One reason is because it allows me to be exposed to lots of different students with majors other than businessf, Martha Mosier, associate professor of business administration, has taught many students how to type since she joined the ACU faculty in 1955. In addition to Beginning Typing, she taught In- termediate and Advanced Typing, Shorthand, Of- fice Administration and Methods of Teaching Business. She liked to get to know her students, she said, and she and her husband, Bert, a former associate professor of industrial education who died in 1981, often had students in their home for a "home-cooked meal" on Sunday afternoons or evenings. "We always tried to have students in our home," she explained. "And our guests were usually freshmen and out-of-state students who didn't have a place to go on the weekends." And many of the students they had entertained in their home, as well as other students, helped Mrs. Mosier clean her home after the flood in October. She said that "the industrial education department spearheaded the clean-up activity, and my house became the central meeting point for students who were helping others clean and salvage their homes and belongingsf, Mrs. Mosier had gone to stay with a friend the night before Cedar Creek rose above its banks and overflowed into her yard and home, but she said she wasn't worried when she left her house about the water reaching her home. She said she left her home because she was afraid the streets would flood and she wouldnit be able to get to school the next morning. When she returned to her home the next day and saw the damage that the flood waters had brought, she said, "I was devastated. I never dreamed the water would reach the house." She said that several times during an extreme- 1 rainy season the water had floode the year, but that it had never come into the house. It took her almost two months to repair the l38 Faculty Feature damage and make the house livable again, she said. "But the tragedy had a bright side. So many came to help," she said, "that I couldn't be sad for very long because so many good things came of it. I really learned to appreciate my Christian friendsf, She said the floodwaters damaged carpets and some of the furniture, but said that most of her anti- que furniture withstood the Columbus Day flood better than some of her other furnishings. She became more animated as she discussed anti- ques, and by her enthusiasm it was evident that she enjoyed collecting vintage pieces. "Antiques are not an expenditure, but an invest- ment," she said seriously. Mrs. Mosier said that she and her husband always had enjoyed going to auc- tions in various Texas cities and communities. And she said that one item she especially enjoyed collecting was antiqulpllglassware. Depression glass, ayfair and Mosier glass were a few of the varieties that she had in her glassware collection. And with a smile she said, "Of course, I like to collect Mosier glassf' She described Mosier glass as "pretty glass in shades of clear blue and green with enameled flowersf' and she said it was made at the turn of the century in France. She said it was hard to find, but she located several pieces, although she didn't buy them, during a vacation through several Southern and Eastern states that she and her daughter, Virginia, took dur- ing the first part of the summer. She laughingly told a story about a stop at an an- tique store during their vacation. "My daughter was looking for a piece of Miss America glass and the dealer said, 'You ought to go to Texas, I know they would have it theref " As she continued giving details about her trip and talking about some of the other pieces in her antique collection, one of her students, a girl from Thailand, popped her head in the office door and said, "live been wanting to come see you. I need to talk to you." And as Mrs. Mosier visited with the girl and en- couraged her to come visit any time, it was clear that she did indeed like to get to "know her students." Opposite page.'
