^ " rlmul ^istuirv In the way of public education, as in all other enterprises, the people of Mulvane and vicinity have always been true examples of the Kansas Spirit, for no sooner had the first few homes been completed than these hardy pioneers organized a school district and began the constructions of a small three-roomed wooden building on the site of the present grade school building. In the fall of 1880 the first term of the Mulvane Schools began with Mr. Luke Lightfoot as principal and Mrs. J. E. Shaw as assistant. The next principal, W. W. Bolton, who taught during the term of 1883-84 was a young man of great energy and thoroughness and rendered valuable service during this formative period of our schools. There were now three teachers in the school. During the next term, 1884-85, Charles Wells directed our schools which were much improved by adding several new subjects to the High School department. Prof. J. A. Butcher from Ohio was next chc^en to superintend our schools, con- tinuing in this capacity from 1885 to 1890. He was one of the most able and scholarly of our early superintendents. J. V. Colville, the veteran school man of Sedgwick County^ next took charge of our schools and, during the term of 1890-91, worked with that natural energy that later characterized his many years of service as county superintendent of Sedgwick county. Our school now offered two years of High School work. In the fall of 1891 O. W. Jones assumed the superintendency, which position he occupied for six years. He was a strong and able school man and was instru- mental in adding the third year to our High School course. In the early nineties it became evident that the old wooden building had served its term of usefulness and plans were at once made to replace it with a new nine- roomed brick building. In the fall of 1902 the first term was begun in this new building. In 1897 T. C. Conklin became superintendent and immediately introduced the system of thoroughness which, for the next seven years, was to characterize his able and valuable service to our schools. It was during Mr. Conklin ' s superintendency that F. M. Cruse spent so many pleasant and profitable years as teacher in the Grammar Department. Prof. Lee Harrison was next chosen superintendent and, from the fall of 1904 to the spring of 1906, worked incessantly to raise our school to a still higher stand- ard of efficiency. In this he was ably assisted by Miss Elizabeth Emery who. for eight years^ taught English and Latin. In the fall of 1906 Mr. W. E. Evans began the directing of our schools. In 1907 the school building was improved by the addition of the east wing, containing two class rooms and an auditorium. It was during the superintendency of Mr. Evans that our High School was first fully accredited by the State University, also the first Nor- PAGE SEVEN
