Pierce Cline . . . Friend and Philosopher By Don M. Ewing Associate Editor of The Shreveport Times Pierce Cline, Ph.B., M.A., L.L.D 1890— 1943 Pierce Cline was born February 17, 1890, in Waleska, Georgia, the son of Mr. and Mrs. John Wes- ley Cline, and received his early schooling there. His education carried him on to Reinhardt College, Emory University, University of Chicago and Columbia University in New York. He came to Centenary as a professor of history in 1920, became president in 1933, and died on October 25, 1943. In between the dates reams could be written about the many honors accorded him, about his fine achievements for others, about his many noble small deeds as well as his magnificent large ones. None of it would mean half as much as even a fleeting memory of Pierce Cline to those who had the good fortune ocasionally to see inside a mind never quiet and a heart always open. Our friendship was built on respect rather than great length of time. It was carried on chiefly in two ways — over the telephone or with Pierce Cline perched on ( " against " would be a better word) the hard seat of a straight chair at a corner of my desk, which always was so full of rub- bish he had difficulty in finding a place to rest his elbows as he spoke earnest words on matters that were heartfelt with both of us. I don ' t know how many editorials running 500 to 1,000 words each have been written by me from one or two simple little sentences spoken by Pierce Cline. He never asked me to write an Dr. Cline and prominent Shreveporters gather for the opening o the Sexton Memorial Campaign of 1937. Left to right, Dr. M. E. Dodd, Dr. Cline, E. A. Frost, Dr. Westbrook Steele, Bishop Sam Hay, Bishop Hoyt Dobbs, George S. Sexton, Jr., and Arch Haynes.
