sJ i PROLOGUE 3 s 1 1 I I if Otf Jjrief Jjlocjrapkij ' of Cjeorc e Samuel Sexto Words are inadequate to pay tribute to George Samuel Sexton and volumes could not record the good that filled his life and lives after him as the direct result of his earthly efforts. Here at Centenary we look upon him as ours. The air, the buildings, the college itself are filled with memories that can never die. But, in other places, in other spheres, are those who held him just as beloved, who admired just as greatly a character which ex- ceeded the bounds of ordinary language in description. Great men of today tell with pride of boyhood friendship with George Sexton. Churches where he served think of him as theirs — and theirs only. Spanish-American War Veterans remember the kindly young Captain of Volunteers at Miami, who stricken with fever and unable to join the expeditionary forces to Cuba, was constantly building the morale of his comrades, tending the ill, helping all. His work in fighting subversive forces which sought to cripple Southern industry during the World War was an out- standing achievement. Business leaders looked on him as their peer as they watched him handle administrative affairs, which would have baffled even those especially trained to combat them. The Masonic order, Knights Templar and Shrine claimed him as a member. Rich, poor, great and meek claimed him as their benefactor. He was that kind of a man. Every step in his life •was the unconscious building of a great and everlasting memorial in the minds of those who knew him. He was Cent- entary ' s " Doc George " ; truly he was " everybody ' s Brother George. " With humble realization of the inadequacy of our efforts, a brief recording of some of the major events in a life which always followed the path of God, appears in the following pages. Those who knew him may fill some of the gaps. No human effort can tell the complete story. COPYRIGHT ALBERT FARNELL, Editor MALCOLM MASON, Business Manager CENTENARY COLLEGE, SHREVEPORT, LOUISIANA

THE DEDICA « W «» Vi«!«i»4« " Doctor Sexton is gone, but the little wisteria-covered cottage on the campus which was his home in the final years of his life still is ' the Sexton home. " The Centenary Board of Trustees has given Mrs. Sexton a life interest in the cottage so that " Aunt Sally " may spend her remaining years in the home which she and " Doc George " occupied so happily together. As a physical memorial to Doctor Sexton, his friends and colleagues at Centenary launched a drive for funds to carry on the work in which he was engaged at the time of his death. The opening banquet of this campaign was a tremendous tribute to the man all had loved so well. At the speakers table are shown, above, Randle T. Moore, Dr. M. E. Dodd, President Pierce Cline, E. A. Frost, Westbrook Steele, Bishop Sam Hay, Bishop Hoyt M. Dobbs, George Sexton, Jr., and Arch Haynes.
