Mr. President:— Your committee of 24 on the location of State Baptist College ask leave to submit us report:—In accordance, with the expressed wish of this convention, in session at Anderson last May we your committee of twenty-four were elected with plenarypower to find a suitable location, for a State College, for the Baptists of South Carolina; and if possible to start the machinery at work within this year your committee was first called to meet in the Zion Baptist church by order of Dr Durhami (chairman) in the month of July 1906, At this meeting much spirit and enthusiasm were manifested and various towns and cities vied each for the coveted honor, of locating the long talked of Baptist College in its midst. To that meeting come bids from Gaffney Sumter and Anderson. Gafffiey through the Thickety mountain Association offered us a beautiful sit within the incorporate limits of Gaffney; consisting of ten (10) acres of land with a new building nearly completed. The said house having been erected by the above named association, better known as the Cherokee Normal and Industrial Institute. .Wateree Upper Division asked your committee to accept as a site 12 acres of land within the incorporate limits of the city of Sumter. The said property has a debt of 2-3 'he purchase price with the reserved right to name three of 'Ihe Trustees for said College from the Wateree Association. The Rocky River Association offered ten (10) acres of land located in the city of Anderson and $7000,00 with the endorsement of quite a number of influential white citizens pledging their moral support for snd college. After a careful consideration of health locality, financial support and other things we decided to locate in the beaunful city of Anderson and the proposed college was named Morris College in honor of Rev. Frank Morris fa pioneer of the Rocky River Association) your committee was called to meet again in the city of Anderson, in the month of December. At this meeting your committee saw that no agreement between us and the trustees of the Anderson property could be reached where-upon another meeting was held in the Zion Baptist Church, Columbia. S. C. Jan. 23, 1907. at which time negotiation with the Anderson Trustees was called off. From the time of our election to the meeting of present session, and as you know' even since on the grounds your committee has had before it various propositions and offers. But your committee has very fully realized that-the matter in h.-nd was one of great concern to’ the denomination and wisdom has dictated, that your committee go slow in accepting offers. But after careful cor ideration and deliberation considering all circumstances we bud that Sumter is the more desirable place for the erection of the State Baptist College and therefore recommend that the offer of the Wateree Association be accepted. Humbly submitted. Dr. J. J. Durham, (chairman); J. C. White, B. D . Secretary. )A LOOK BACK . . . THE WAY IT BEGAN The initial founding of Morris College was truck a test of strength, yet the venture had just begun. The College was to face a future of trials and success. The year 1915 brought forth the first two graduates with the Bachelor of Arts. In 1916-P. Morris College enrolled as an accredited college with the South Carolina State IX-partment of Education. This act was significant for not only the institution but for it's growing population of graduates. As time passed in the essence of prosperity, and growth, the school was soon to confront a national dilema. As many other institutions across the country, the Great Depression curtailed progress and promoted changes. In 1929. Morris College discontinued its normal program. By the following year, the college president resigned and all outside aid to the school was withdrawn. As a result of financial stress. Morris College became a two year |umor college; it also discon- tinued the elementary school. A meeting of the Baptist Educational and Missionary Convention of South Carolina at Anderson unanimously voted that Morris College and Benedict College enter a compact whereby the duplication of work would lx- reduced. It was necessary, for the continuation of both schools, that each be unique. Therefore, such a compact (Morris College as a Junior College! lasted from 1930 52. In 1933. the college was restored a four-year school. The decade was equally so. The high school curriculum was discontinued in 1915 which permitted the college to become strictly a post-secondary institution. The next year. 1947, stagnated the school as accreditation was denied by the South Carolina State department of Education. Nevertheless, the college regained State accreditation in 19-19 and in 1950 received "B" rating of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools. Morris College was established solely for the education of Negroes, however on August 14. 1961. the word "Negro" appearing in the original charter (certificate of incorporation) was eliminated hence opening the facilities of the institution to all ethnic groups. The major priority of the institution was perhaps accreditation, "full Steam Ahead was declared in 1962 the motto for the venture to pursue full accreditation with the Southern Association. By 1968. status for application was obtained with the Southern Association for accreditation. The institution already maintained accreditation by the South Carolina State Department of Education, membership with the Veteran's Administration. Federal Government for Student I.oans. Foundation for the Advancement of Negro Colleges, the National Alumni Association and the Inter-Collegiate Press. In 1969. the first Dr. Stewart Oliver Dr. Stewart diver. Moderator of the Rocky Riser Association of Anderson Counts recommended in 1902 that the Brethren begin to raise funds and secure property for the establishment of a college Bv 190$. $7,000 had been raised and 10 acres of land donated The College was to be named Morris College after Rev f rank S Morns, first moderatot of the association. After some differences the association merged with the Baptist Educational and Missionary Convention of South Carolina and the school was located in Sumter (FACING PAGE; Much of the inspiration fot founding the school came from Dr E.C. Morris (Not to be Dr. E.C. Morris confused with the other Morris), then President of the National Baptist Convention, who presented the idea at one of the Convention s earlier national meetings. The offer to locate the school in Sumter was made by the Wateree Associationofficial step in effort to gain accreditation with the Southern Association was nude as the institution obtained the status "Corresponding College". It was that same year that the school received its new seal of identity. The artistic design was created with a two-fold purpose: "to authenticate the written communication of business with which the college was involved and provide an artistic source ot communication as a symbol that projects the purpose and objectives of the college". The latter sixties and early seventies may have-been the most trying c-ra for Morris College as turmoil and unrest disturbed the campus. It was a time of uncertainty as tension reached its peak between students and administrators. Challenged with operating an institution without a president, an Interim Committee was appointed by the Hoard of Trustees in 1970-71. Hoard of Trustee members had always been appointed by the Baptist Convention. In 1975-7-1. the school was once again without a president and a second Interim Committee was appointed. It was the strength of this committee and it s consultant that made successful application for accreditation to the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools; candidacy was confirmed. On IX-cem-ber 15. 1978, Morris College received full accreditation by the Southern Association. The birth and growth of Morris College has received great leadership by its nine presidents and two interim committees. PHYSIC Al.

One was a white, wooden structure (Phyllis Wheatley Halil and the other unpainted (Brockenton Halil. It is not sure as to the uses of these facilities. In 191V 16, the institution cradled three large buildings: two dormitories and a chapel and classroom combined. One of the dorms was IXsbbins-Keith. built under the subsidy of the Women's Baptist Convention. Furnishings, in short, were such as would be expected in average boarding schools. The erection of McGowan Hall and a president's home were completed in 1916-17. After the initial settlement of land in 1907. the next land purchase was made in 1919 for 27.41 acres. The next decade was to be just as progressive, if not more, in the physical expansion of Morris College. The class of 1920 dedicated a gray, brick arch at the main entrance of the campus. This eloquent structure enhanced the beauty of the school. The Carnegie Library was also built in 1920. It was used to provide instruction of sewing lessons and eventually became known as the Music Studio where music classes were held.

The year 1924 was very productive as Legate Hall was also erected. Nevertheless, the unpredictable dilema of fire burned Legare Hall in 1925. It was a men's dormitory at that time, and the second floor of the academic building was used until renovations were made. The following year. 1926-27. Dob-bins-Keith Hall was moved across the campus and veneered. It was in that same year that a grandstand was built and the hall diamond fenced in. With the 1950 decade came the Great Depression. Morris College was able, in spite of that event, to construct a residence hall for men in 1952 Brawlcy-St arks. At the turn of the decade, the college, in 1911-42. cradled ten modern buildings: Academic building. Girl's Dorm. Chapel. Dining Room. IX-an's Home. President's Home. Music Hall. Teacher's Home. Boy's Dorm and an Agricultural Building. The total value approached a half million dollars. In B IS. the I D. Pinson Memorial Library was erected at a cost of $100. X)0. The Baptist Women's Convention donated funds toward this effort and also provided books for the establishment. In addition to the completion of the library, two buildings were constructed by the federal government (commercial buildings); these buildings were used as a science building and biology facility. The 1950's brought forth the construction of four facilities. The two aforementioned government buildings were remodeled and brick veneered to be used as a student center. Presently, it provides operations for a cafeteria. Student Government Office, recreational activities and the Baptist Historical Archives. The Garrick-Boykin Gymnasium was erected in 1952. It embodies several classrooms, a large stage and of course, facilities for gymnastic activities, including basketball. This building may also Ik- used as an auditorium. The H.H. Bulter Building was erected in 1952 as well. It is currently used by the Division of Education and the Special Services Program. The Mable K Howard Building, often called the Home Economics Building, was erected in 1954. The Counseling Center. Bookstore. Infirmary, financial Aid Office. Baptist Women Office. Cooperative Educational Center and faculty offices are housed in this facility. Announced in February. 1962. Morris College proclaimed the school was in the midst of a building and renovation program designed to provide a first class physical plant. The erection of G. Goings Daniels Hall in 1964 confirmed that effort. Daniels Hall is a residence for men with a cafeteria occupying half of the bottom floor. The Wilson-Booker Science Hall was constructed three years later (1967) for the utilization of the Division of Natural Science and Mathematics. A foreign language and speech lab is also provided. This edifice cradles a seating capacity lecture room. Continuing the physical plant expansion program, the institution demolished the archaic Dobbins-Keith ILdl in 1969. and replaced it with a beautiful two-story structure known as the Dobbins-Keith-Whitener Hall. This building is used as a residence Hall for females and was constructed by the Baptist Woman's Convention. Interested in improving not only the physical plant, but its facilities as well, the College initiated in August. 1970. an all out drive to add at least fifteen thousand additional volumes to the Col-Cataixkjve of Morris C'OI.I.WJK •I ; NN MNCKMKNT iy Expenses BOARDINC STUDENTS Bom.

The early 1970's brought unrest to the campus which unfortunately caused the destruction of several buildings, including: E.D. White i lull and the old President s 1 fome. In 1973 74. the college was under the direction of an Interim Committee which rallied to keep the school in operation. The evidence of renovations to the Academic Building and Student Center during that academic year permits appreciation of strength from that committee. Pavement of the streets on campus began in the spring of 1974 by the State of South Carolina. This project was completed in 1975. In 1978. construction began for a new library under the authorization of the Board of Trustees. This fabulous edifice, completed in 1980. is a duplex, housing a library and media center—known as the L.C Richardson-W.A. Johnson learning Resources Center and the W.If. Ncal-Iola Jones f ine Arts Center. Both of these facilities arc well equipped and a tremendous increase of library volumes have occurcd. In 1974. library volumes amounted to 21.(XX) and in 1979. the Morris College library owned in excess of 8X,(xx volumes. Total volumes exceed 100.000 today. The physical plant at Morris College lias grown from two wooden buildings in 1911 to fifteen buildings in 1981. More important than quantity is the sufficient quality of the facilities. These facilities meet the most crucial aspect of the institution—the academic curriculum. CURRICULUM The spring of 1911 brought forth the first commencement exercise at Morris College. There were eight graduates from rhe high school and one from the Theology Program. It is known that a high school diploma and studies in Theology were provided and all literary branches as could be supplied in other colleges, were already offered. I nfortunatcly. records of the curriculum prior to 1911 arc not yet available. It is certain, and is a notable accomplishment, that by 1912 a college curriculum was organized. Students passed readily from high school into college where the Bachelor's Degree was awarded. The first Bachelor of Arts Degrees were conferred on two graduates in 1915. Several awards and prizes were given to stu- dents as motivation and acknowledgement of achievement. Such awards included: the Dunbar Prize (Latin); Easley Prize (Mathematics). West-berry Prize (AgricultureI; Alumni Association (Best All-Around). These recognitions capture specific subjects studied at Morris College in 1915. The first World War did not hender academic scholarship at the institution. It was May. 1917 that the college conferred its first Honorary Doctorate Degrees (DD). In 1918-19. such practical courses as sewing, dress-making, domestic science, gardening and poultry raising were offered. It may justifiable be determined that Morris College met the academic and vocational needs of its students. In 1922 23. the school offered a four year high school curriculum; it is certain that from 1911 to 1922. only the fourth year high school program was available. The grammar school level was deleted to the advanced seventh grade. Bv 1929. the normal program was discontinued and in 1930 the elementary school was also discontinued. As a Junior College (1930 32). Morris College offered two years of post sccondar curricula. Graduates of the Junior College were admitted 9THE LEADERSHIP THROUGH DISTINGUISHED PRESIDENTS NINE GREAT MEN WITH GREAT VISION IO the third year level in any Class "A" College. The courses during that era were focused on professional areas such as pre-law. pre-medical study, pre-dental studies, teacher training, a school of Music and Theology Program. Additions were made to the curriculum in 1931 32 including: Home Economics, commercial courses for preparation in secretarial work (typing, shorthand and bookkeeping). No credit hours were earned lor commercial courses. By 1933 the four year college curriculum was restored. The first summer school session was held in 1 I0. A general curriculum were assumed, however. Instutes were provided to meet the needs ot the community—a minister’s and midwives' institute. Certificates were awarded for those who satisfied requirements for the midwives' program. By 194-1-45. an Extension School was established. The Board of Trustees, in its Annual Meeting (May. 1912). voted to discontinue high school work at Morris College because of the phenomenal increase in the college enrollment. To avoid inconvenience it was necessary to eliminate one grade of high school yearly beginning with the lower grades. This process was completed in 1948. It was in that same academic year that the required number of credit hours for graduation decreased from the traditional 126 credit hours to 124. The 1947-48 curriculum supplied degrees in the following studies. English and Literature (offering French. Spanish and German). Natural Sciences and Mathematics; Social Science (Alro-American History and International Relations ... ). Education and Psychology. Health and Physical Education. Home Economics. Religion. Art and Music Education. Private instruction lor piano and voice were available for half hour lessons twice a week. As time passed, the curriculum underwent little change. This is evident in the 1958-59 academic program which oflered a Bachelor of Arts Degree in English. Social Science. History. Religious Education. Bachelor of Science Degrees were provided in Religious Education Biology. Chemistry. Mathematics and Natural Science. Students were also able to obtain a Bachelor of Divinity and a Bachelor of I heology Degree. By 196k.

Depart to Serve.” The motto of dear old Alma Mater will always be a part of this class—the class which highlighted the Diamond Jubilee. A beautiful Miss Morris College, strong leadership in the Student Government Association, the student representative to the Board of Trustees. Who's Who. Honor Roll. Dean's List. O.R. Reuben Scholars, and Morris College Scholars were all parts of this great class. Special thanks to advisor. Mr. Lester T. Corley, for strong leadership and assistance which helped the almighty class of '83 to be the best ever. ITOGETHER WE ARE STANDING Standing together was the theme of the Junior Class. Under the leadership of President Lawrence Miller, the class accomplished many goals, including a representative showing at the 1982 Thanksgiving Rally. The class sold bumper stickers and key chains commemorating the Diamond Jubilee, and raised funds with a car wash. From the Gospel Choir to the l.iterarv Society to the academic clubs and organizations. Juniors stood in the forefront of leadership. As President Miller stated "We are committed to the college s effort to achieve academic excellence." That'S the spirit Juniors. Other Class Officers (L) were Jerry Burns. Willie Zimmerman. Stanley Marshall and (seated) Imogenc Robinson. Renee Armstrong Ronald Barton Carmen Bethea Ann Brooks Miriam Brown Ophelia Brown Joseph Bryson Tommy Burgess a )Althea Condly Della Council Wesley Crawford Milton Curry Dale Davis Sonya Davis Kenneth Dickey Wanda Ervin Warren Frinks Colette Garland James Green Jr. Lucille Gre j; Dearlyn Grier Jerry Hilton Lottie Jenkins Neolis Johnson Jr. Sophia Latimore Annette I.ynas Stanley Marshall Michael Mathis soBenjamin McCray I.ester McCray Marry Montgomery Lena Parson Angela Pollard Willie Postell Cecelia Prince Deloris Robinson TALKING UP OR DOING WHAT THEY DO BEST? Sophia Latimore and Joseph Bryson take a little time for some serious class discussion. Or is it just some late-breaking gossip.1' The dynamics of personal interaction were very much live on the campus as students attempted to keep up , with the news on each other, their classmates and ? everything else. Some o! the popular rumors were concerned with tuition increases for the next semester, who went out with whose boyfriend or girlfriend, somebody got some new clothes, or that Tony Hart s disco would be "on the one." As usual, the stories were all wrong. Oh well, so much for communication. Now-on to the learning Resources Center for some interaction with the books. Sophia and Joseph are members of the Junior class. Quite frankly, instead of gossipping. Joe was really trying to get him a date. As usual. Sophia said no. Better luck next time. Joe! 51Imogen? Robinson Franklin Sanders Deirdrc E. Smalls Robert Smith David Talley Carious Taylor Reynold Tisdale Terri Thompson HAVING FUN . . . Dancing, talking, and clowning around were ways of having fun. Some of the bigtime fun people were Renee Hutchinson, Daryl Wright. David Talley, Cathy Morgan, Linda Scott. Katie Webb and Valerie Wright. Jencll Wilson and Arlene Green kept the girls in I.egare Hall in stitches while "tobo" Norman Robinson and Al Mitchell did the same in Daniels. Pictures right, N'eolis Johnson and Lottie Jenkins are giving a real example of how having fun is really done at Morris College. We are not sure il its a variation of the ever popular "Smurf" or what? Better be careful N’eolis. Billy's only up the road at S.C. State. Fun people on the faculty and staff were Mr. U. Sweeney. Miss Everlyn Hall and Dr. Li Bell. Sure can't forget Ada Boynton. Cynthia Warren Anthony White Bridgette Whittington Willie Zimmerman SiLOOKING AHEAD FOR BETTER OPPORTUNITIES Looking ahead for better opportunities, the Sophomore Class emerged as one of the strongest of the classes. Thanksgiving Rally 1982 saw the mighty Sophomores complete their SI.000 pledge while other classes only satisfied part of their annual pledges. The class also baked cakes and pics and washed cars, all in the spirit of working together. Class officers were John Duncan. Eddie Gore, Teresa Marshall and President Kenneth Armstrong. "We say what we mean and mean what we sav" summed up President Armstrong. The class also commanded a great share of audience at the assembly programs. Dr. Mary Relihan won the Sophomore class raffle and was immediately presented a very neat black and white portable television set. Better opportunities are ahead for this class who did not hesitate to take advantage of opportunity during the 1982-85 academic year.

Students realize this soon after enrolling. The instructors here at Morris make sure that the students receive their money's worth in the course of English. Two students, hard at work-study, study, study, study. The fellow at the right gets the work done. Randy "Rerun" Moore is adding the final touches to his "A" paper.

This year's class consisted of about 200 members. They held outstanding positions and were known for scholarship, being involved in sports, and showing a great amount of spirit on the cheerleading squad, as well as participation in activities. Freshmen here at Morris College make up about 85% of the Gospel Choir, and also a large segment of the Morris College Chorale. They did a very good job. "We. the Freshman Class of 86 are here to Make a better tomorrow." stated Kenny Rose. President. Class officers were (I. to r.) Kenny Rose. Klainc Choice. Arthur Thompson. Wanda Richardson and F.dward Anderson. Class advisor. Dr. Mary Relihan. did extremely well in her first year as class advisor. Good guidance made for a good class, and Dr. Relihan was tops.

Michael Kelly attempts to mix work and study by perusing a seemingly endless number of books, all for Dr. Ali's research paper. Things were a little easier for Michael. mainly because he is a work study student in the area. Many of us felt right at home because of the long hours spent in the library trying to complete class assignments. Books and buns are all we can see. Priscilla Mungin Jennifer Nowlin George Parson Felecia Randolph c.o SCIENTISM VS. CREATIONISM? Talking about (be goo good old high school days? Reminiscing the good rimes' Comparing classes then with classes now.' All of these things seem to be on the minds of Carolyn. Julius and Alvin. Even though they appear to be trying to out talk each other, actually, we were told that they were arguing the merits of Scientism vs. Creationism and whether or not they should be taught in the public schools. Other going topics were Reagonomics. the state of the economy, the survival of black colleges and. of course, the future of financial aid. What we really want to know is why Carolyn is holding a Oemson Tigers Cup. Afterall, Morris College is the home of the Hornets. Perhaps the real topic for discussion was whether or not the Tigers should have been pur on NCAA and ACC probation for alleged recruiting violations. Ahh, current events.

The School of Religion has to its credit a record of developing preachers and Christian workers. A most unique training plan produced by the School has been its ability to train persons for the B. Th. and B.D. Degrees who have been willing to share their training with others in local Communities through the School of Religion's Extension Continuing Education Programs. The School of Religion curriculum embraces the classical subjects as exemplified in the traditional theological rootage; and the contemporary approach as exemplified by new directions in clinical training. 101DINING HALL WAFF Helena Choke.

STUDENT LIFE FROM BEING SERIOUS TO QUITE M1SCHIEV10US Getting together to study, going to the Learning Resources Center or to the residence hall mini libraries, heavy talks about the issues of the day on the yard and in dormitory rooms were all a part of student life. For relaxation we walked downtown to check out the stores. Sometimes we played volleyball, and basketball. Backgammon was the most popular game. Some of us did a lot of reading. Novels, fiction, magazines and the bathroom walls were most popular. "Another World.” "The Young and the Restless..I'he Guiding Light." and "General Hospital." were among the most popular soap operas. Unfortunately "Texas" was taken off of the air. Beverly Brooks. Linda Scott. Doretha Williams. Cynthia Warren. Jacqueline Gadscn and Janice Brown were soap opera experts. Not to mention Chris Coleman. Sports was the order of duty for most of the fellows (next to I-cgare Hall, of course). Another popular TV show was "Night Rider." Dallas, theJeffersons. Falcon Crest. Hill Street Blues. Quincy, and Gimme A Break were also well watched by the Morris College Family We also played bingo, watched SGA sponsored movies and attended basketball games. l or devilment, some anonymous persons accidentally "borrowed" the dining hall silverware.

Marvin Gave, Michael Jackson and Stevie Wonder joined female vocalists Janet Jackson. Diana Ross. Melba Moore and Jennifer Holiday in delighting us.

The dining lull was tlie source of much conversation Under new management. Mr. Douglas, many improvements were made. A luscious salad bar. better deserts and overall food quality and variety made eating in Daniels Dkling I lall a pleasurable experience. Big caters such as Winded Lyons. Linda Scott. Randy Moore. Anthony Todd. Su ciic Smalls. Priscilla Mungin and Robert Washington led tin- way in seconds, thirds and fourths of our daily appetizers. Daily music was provided by Timothy Flowers. Norman Robinson and James Brown (boxes). HIDORMITORY LIVING . . . Dennis "Magic’l.ewis takes a little time off for relaxation. Sometimes you just get tired of the hustle and hustle of college life. Then its time to pack it all up and do as Dennis is doing. Talk about an experience—try dormitory living!! Study, play games, socializing and of course, watching televison were a part of the experience. Becoming friends with many different people was the most rewarding of the experience. Problem solving was the task of the senates. I.egare Hall. Brawley-Starks Hall. Daniels Hall, and Dobbins-Keith-Whitener Hall were all hubs of activity—our homes away from home. Most of us had two or three room-mates who quickly became pals and best buddies. We had socials, dances, bake sales as fundraising projects for the Thanksgiving Hally. The biggest problems were noise and roaches. We attempted to solve these problems by establishing quiet hours (It actually worked, sometimes) and by telling the more untidy students not to bring food into the rooms (it barely worked, but we tried bard anyway). The dorms were sprayed at least once per month. Students helped to maintain supeivision through the Residents Assistant Program. Some of the more lively dormitory people were Charles Brown. Daryl Houck. Al Mitchell, and Joseph 13 rDavenport. Also. Beverly Scott. I.isa Gainey. Sandra Hollomon, Ziphia Lumpkin, and Gail Myers. On the quiet side were Rodie Lamb. Carol Frazier, Birdie Porter, Cynthia Warren. George Parsons, and Lena Parsons. Loudmouths were Gwen Williamson. Mclvedean Ford, Ruth Ann Holman, and Andrew James. III.

Roger Williams, and Edward Anderson (Above) demonstrate that with study, and rest, good grades can be made. It sure beats running around the campus, listening to loud music, and making low grades. To the left, Marion Pinckney is watching television (ETV, of course), but at the same time has his mind focused on his work during quiet hours in Daniels Hall. D3UNTIL NEXT YEAR . . . Memories of student life are life-long memories to all of us. especially we who arc planning on graduating and entering the "real" world. Carolyn I razicr and Faye Prince seem to be summing up the good times and the bad times of their Morris College experience. The books, the many student activities, the good times in the dormitory and in the city, the various cultural enrichment experiences, our times in class—and most of all. the many friends all made the experience a worthwhile one. These memories will be with us forever: “Morris our college dear With hearts filled with cheer We come to thee Throughout life's checkered ways Thy name we'll ever praise Teacher of youthlul ways All hail to thee."
