Every year at Christmas, he may be seen carting away thousands of presents from the tree in the foyer— one of the signs of his great popularity with the boys. He is known as the protector of the seventh grade and can be seen emerging from behind doors to come to the rescue of the little people. During the war Coach Bland traveled ex- tensively in Panama, Columbia, Ecuador, the Bahamas, and the Galapogas Islands. He is a member of the Tennessee Educa- tional Association, Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association, the Mid-South Officials Association, and is affiliated with Second Presbyterian Church. jL i H r P ■vMifi , - H j mp t - -Jl .aHB H Because of his devotion to the school, his popularity among all the boys, and for every- thing that he has contributed to Memphis University School in both time and effort, we, the members of the annual staff, re- spectfully dedicate the 1964 " Owl " to Mr. Edward Bland.

DEDICATION Mr. EDWARD E. BLAND is probably the best known teacher at AA.U.S., mainly be- cause of his friendliness and many years of devoted service to the school. Coach Bland, as he is known to all, wqs one of the first teachers at AA.U.S. He received his B.S. de- gree from University of Tennessee in 1951 and his AA.A. degree from Memphis State in 1954. As an avid supporter of ' his alma mater, he annually institutes the " U-T " spirit in the new seventh graders. Before coming to M.U.S. he taught for several years at Whitehaven High School. Since joining the faculty he has taught Tennessee History, Bible and Physical Education. He has also taken a role in sports by coaching Varsity, B-team, and Junior High football and bas- ketball. Coach Bland spent thirty months in the Pacific in the Air Force and after return- ing, he has been a member of the National Guard. He has taken annual trips to Nashville for the past several years. The trips are limited to seventh and eighth . graders, and their purpose is to aid the Tennessee history course by giving the boys a first-hand knowledge of the state government. Also, for the past six years. Coach Bland has taken boys to New Orleans to see the Sugar Bowl football game on January 1 . Coach Bland ' s interest in sports is not lim- ited to spectatorship. He has been an out- standing football referee and can be seen at many county football games. His fine work was rewarded in 1963 when he was elected president of the West Tennessee Officials Association.
