required building, School was opened in old Highland Hall in the Fall of 1831. The following- summer the Administration building, planned and supervised by President Yoder, was erected. The school was incorporated Jan. 4, 1892, under the name of Lenoir College, and was adopted as the College of the Tennessee Synod in 1895. Then from 1891 to 1901 Prof. Yoder was President of Lenoir College, resigning in the latter year after which he spent his whole time in the Pastorate. In October 1907, he was elected to membership on the Board of Trustees of L moir C )lle^e and was re-elected regularly until his death which occurred in the early morning of May 16, 1911. In all, he give nineteen years of service as head of the school work of the Tennessee Synod, in its beginnings, thro ' the period of strife and divi- sion, in the time of re-establishment and vindication and always with heroic self-sacrifice Early in the year 1879, Prof. Yoder accepted a call to become Pastor of St. James Lutheran Church, near Newton, N. C. From that time until the time of his dea^h he sustained the relation of Pastor of some congregation or parish along with his labors in the class-room. In this office he served twatve diff > rant congregations, all except two being in Catawba county. This long period of service in the ministry, his prominent service as an offher of synod and the fact that his name appears on nearly every special program of the Synod during the past thirty years show that he was a Mas- ter in the pulpit and a leader in the Synod. In the larger field he served as President of the United Synod from 1902 to 1906 and Chairman of the H: > m3 Mission and Church Extension Board from 1908 to 1910. Recognizing in this Preacher-Professor a man of genius, the public call- ed upon him for more service. Accordingly, he was made County Superin- tendant of schools for Catawba county in the summer of 1884 and continued until the summer of 1893. As a Student, he took high rank, especially in Mathematics, for which he had native talent, and in which he distinguished himself in later life. Every step was paved by hard work. He favorably impressed his superiors both n^ar and far. The " ups and downs " of his own College days taught him to labor for and exercise an interest in his students. He was the first beneficiary s ' udent of the Tennessee Synod and he was ever elert and active in the support of others who followed him. He was studious. He finished his classical course and laid the foundation of a ' theological education at the same time. Though deprived of a regular theological course he neverthe- less made himself a capable theologian after he left College so that he serv- ed as Professor of Theology in connection with his school work, and was honored in 1899 by his Alma Mater with the Degree of Doctor of Divinity. As a Professor, Dr. Yoder found the largest opportunity to exercise his native talent. He was, by nature, a teacher. Having a strong intellect trained to a logical method and being deeply interested in the education of the youth he found his greatest work in exercising these faculties. He was abundantly able to analyze thoroughly the most abstract problems connected with his numerous subjects. He possessed a fluency of speech by which he was able to convey his own clear conceptions in a simple, easily understood
