Nineteen Hundred and Fifty-Seven A STUDENT PUBLICATION GARDNER-WEBB COLLEGE Boiling Springs, North Carolina Patsy Cook Editor Bill Stephens Business Manager Kfi Dover Memorial Library cclebyating , . . OUR GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY Gardner-Webb College was charted in 1905 as Boiling Springs High School. It was built and supported by the Kings Mountain and Sandy Run Baptist Associations of Cleveland and Rutherford Counties. The school opened its doors for the admission of students in October, 1907, with Professor J. D. Huggins as principal. In 1912 the Gaston Association joined with the other two in the support of the school, and the .Memorial Building was completed in 1925. The high school became Boiling Springs Junior College in 1928, with J. Blaine Davis as its first president. Succeed- ing presidents have been Dr. Zeno Wall, the Reverend James L. Jenkins, . . C. Lo elace, Dr. George J. Burnett, the Reverend John R. Cantrell, and the present president. Dr. Philip Lo in Elliott. The big problem which faced the college until it became Gardner-Webb in 1942 was one of securing adequate support. In 1937, the .Memorial Building burned. In the early forties, the school was dragging on, but the people of North Carolina were not ready to see the college die. Former North Carolina Governor O. Ma.x Gardner got interested in the school, and in the summer of 1942, gave S10,000 for scholarships. During the ne.xt five years, Go ernor Gardner poured thousands and thousands of dol- lars into the college, which in 1942 was renamed to honor the Gardner and ' ebb families of Cleveland and Ruther- ford Counties.

Shortly afterward, the Memorial Fund Enlargement Campaign was launched. By the first of 1946, the college was free from debt and the appraised value of all assets was $850,000. Two years after Governor Gardner ' s death, a building was dedicated bearing his name— the O. Max Gardner Memorial Student Union. In 1948 Gardner-Webb was accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools and unconditionally admitted into the North Carolina Baptist Family of Colleges. Just one year later, the College Community Health Center opened, and in 1952, the John R. Dover Memorial Library was dedicated. In President Elliott ' s tenth annual report to the Trustees, he listed the college ' s total assets at $1,718,288. And since that report a new girls ' dormitory, costing approximately $240,000 has been built, and a combination gymnasium-recreation center and a swimming pool to cost about the same amount is under construction in this Golden Anniversary year of Gardner- Webb College. —These facts have been gleaned from Lengthening Shadows, a history of the college written by F. B. Dedmond, published this year. SPORTSMANSHIP Page 104 CITIZENSHIP Page 126 .

Faculty- homes are located around the Drive. The Woman ' s Missionary Unions of the Kings Moun- tain, Sandy Run, and Gaston Asso- ciations led in raising money for the home. Mrs. Rush Stroup of Shelby, chairman of the campaign committee, was called the moving spirit in the completion of the building, which was occupied by the Elliotts in 1949. ADMINISTRATION W.
