We intend to picture the I ! S Si " " " ,l ' ll V l ff(W. B»!5 amazing contrast of Flor- ida Normal today with Florida Normal of yes- teryear. By so doing we hope to portray Florida Normal ' s progress, mag- nify a composite picture of the labor, the sacri- fices and the broad vision which are responsible for our school. edlcaiian Out of all the personalities one meets during his college career, there are some who are soon forgotten and there are others whose memories are treasured possessions. No other persons have been more helpful, influential and encouraging than Mrs. Dorothy Littlejohn, and Mrs. Carrie L. Felder- Carswell. To you, the Senior Class of 1945, sincerely dedicates this annual. i u [ t e, the Class of 1945, feel that the publication of our first Senior Class annual would be incomplete without paying tribute to the memories of those who have endeared themselves to our race by their outstanding accomplishments. Few lives have been enriched in varied experiences and achievements as that of Dr. Nathan W. Collier and Miss Sarah A. Blocker. The ex- amples of their lives have left a rich heritage for the coming generations. MISS SARAH A. BLOCKER DR. NATHAN W. COLLIER 9n AfLfLtecUUfoH, Of the individuals who have wisely guided our program, two people stand like radiant lights. Mrs. Josie B. Greer, a woman of high morals, a person noted for calm judgment and practical wisdom and the sponsor of our class for the years ' " 42, ' 43, ' 44 " , and Mr. Britton G. Sayles, a gentle- man of high integrity, a friend and counselor to the students and our present sponsor. it is to them that we wish to extend special thanks and to express our genuine appreciation for the sincere interest they have manifested in us. Foreword To perpetuate the memories of Florida Normal Industrial Institute of yesteryear, and to preserve a record of the personalities and physical plant of the school today has been our purpose. It is our hope that we shall realize the intrinsic worth of this annual and that as the years pass by, its value will increase. mmmmmr ---™ " - .. i 044 (J I P II s I sscsrs: 1 ACKNOWLEDGMENT Seldom are the efforts and sacrifices required to publish a college year book of persons other than the student members of the staff given due consideration. Often the staff receives all the credit. We, however, can- not overlook the indispensable services rendered by others. The whole hearted interest, wise recommendation, and practical as- sistance of our able instructor, Mr. James W. Bryant, has made our annual possible. Particular appreciation must be expressed to Hal M. Tucker, our photographer, for his unusually fine pictures. Then, too, Roberts Son, Birmingham, Alabama, whose interest has extended beyond the realm of printing to our special problems, we owe our gratitude. To all these, whose suggestions were always most helpful, to our ad- vertisers, and to other contributors, we acknowledge our indebtedness. BOOK ONE Alnta Mcdeb To The Board of Trustees of Florida Normal Industrial College whose achievements, untiring efforts, and administrative guidance through the years have been the most expressive vigor in the school ' s enlargement and growth. 1 The President DR. JOHN L. TILLEY When we pause to salute the individuals who have played an impor- tant role in the building of Florida Normal, our attention is turned respect- fully to Dr. John L. Tilley, our President. Since his inauguration in 1944, Dr. Tilley has rendered Florida Normal many services. He has put forth many efforts to raise moral and intellectual standards along w ith his emphasis on improving the general living condi- tions on our campus. We ' re looking forward to his achievement of maintaining the contin- uous growth of Florida Normal and to his being a successful president. s g? ' " t ' •■- : ' «f jf - wmwi FACULTY ■■■■■ " j. W.

CLASS HISTORY All that is to be related herein happened a few years ago. Perhaps some have forgotten the happenings then, for in this day the happenings of yesterday are forgotten yesterday. We won ' t forget and wonder if we shall ever forget. It was in the fall of nineteen hundred and forty-one that a group of inexperienced persons entered the gate that was " the doorway to the castle of learning and led to the part of better living " . The group was or- ganized with Ruffin McDuffie as President. Later in the year it was necessary for the Vice-President, Gye L. Long to take office. It was during this year that this class began making history. It has been stated that for the first time in the history of the school a Freshman Class excelled in its re- port of finance for Founder ' s Day. The Junior-Senior Prom was an active affair which will always be remembered in the hearts of those who who witnessed it. We pause to make mention of and give dedication to those of our group who were unable to complete their work; but left for a cause which will long be remembered, for it was at this time that young men were being called to service. At the beginning of this voyage Anna L. Smith was elected President and through a very efficient lead- ership and staunch support of others and our newly chosen sponsor, Mrs. J. B. Greer, we accomplished much. Just to mention a few accomplishments— this class had the honor of having one of its members elected as " Miss Florida Normal " , and most extra-curricula organizations were headed by some members of this class. We looked with great anticipation to the day of graduation. There was a class enrollment of 40 with one young man. During this time two couples were shot by Dan Cupid, Arcilla C. Thomas u nited with Gerald Edwards, and Willia Mae Cranberry united with Edward L. Home. From these walls march persons who have put their lights in various and sundry occupations. Supe have chosen to make further study. Two of our group made further study at Howard University, one at Spelman College, one at Homer G. Phillips Home of Nursing, one at Tuskegee Institute, one at Shaw University, fifteen entered the teaching field and five held positions with outstanding business companies in their cities. It was during this time that plans were finally drawn making it possible for further study to be taken at Florida Normal. Because of the many experiences and enjoyments of previous years a few felt it only fitting and proper to return thus making additional history, in that, we would be pioneers. Those returning and who may be remembered as pioneers were: Eugenia Belle Brooks, Geneva Carter, Dessye Collins, Shirley Dennard, Maude F. George, Hazel L. Hadley, Amanda Hope, Willia Mae G. Home, Lola Jones, Hattie Ruth Keys, Rob- ert H. Lee, L. U. Mobley, H. H. Robinson, J. C. Sams, Mary Washington, and Corenthia Wilson. Hazel L. Hadley was elected President and again due to the staunch support from the members of the class and our ardent sponsor, Mrs. J. B. Greer, we accomplished more. The persons felt that their returning was not history enough, but that they should make other contribu- tions. For the second consecutive year the class was honored to have " Miss Florida Normal " come from the group. Mrs. Eugenia Belle Brooks held this title for two years. In the late Spring a group of seven interested ladies, five of whom were members of this class, were called together for the purpose of organizing a chapter of the Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc. In years to come they will be known always as charter members of the first sorority on the campus. We felt that we owed it to ourselves and the institution to return the fourth year thereby making Flor- ida Normal a successful senior college. However, circumstances were so that it became necessary for two mem- bers to dissolve their relationship with us. All the other members with that determined incomparable spirit. Miss Amanda Hope was elected as our new President and Dean Britton G. Sayles, as our sponsor. We. began the year by again having the honor of Miss Florida Normal coming to our class by .popular vote. Miss Amanda Hope was elected from the entire student body. Members of this class have participated in more extra-curricula activities than any other cfass of the school. We are looking forward to further progress and many more accomplishments as the First Senior Class of Florida Normal and Industrial College.
