Miller President 1959-1982 As usual, the Union College school year was a conflicting mixture of stability and change with returning upper classmen and the arrival of new students. However, the fall of 1982 was marked by the resignation of Dr. Mahlon A. Miller after 23 years of leadership as President of Union College. Mahlon Miller was born in Verona, Pennsylvania. He received a B.S. degree in Aeronautical Engineering from the University of Pittsburgh in 1943 and did graduate work at the Cast Institute of Technology (mathematics and engi- neering) and at Western Reserve University (psychology, personnel, and management) while he was employed by the Air Force as a civilian research worker from 1943-47. From 1947-53, he studied and taught at Drew Univer- sity, Madison, New Jersey, where he received the degrees of Bachelor of Divinity and Master of Sacred Theology. During these years he taught mathematics, New Testament Greek, philos- ophy, and religion, served as assistant to the dean of the seminary, and served a pastorate in New Jersey. He then attended the University of Zurich, the American School of Classical Studies in Athens, and the American School of Oriental Research in Jerusalem, and continued his advanced studies in theology at the University of Tubingen, as a member of the first group of Fulbright students in Germany. Mahlon Miller interrupted these studies to come to Barbourville in 1955 when he was appointed assistant to the president. In 1959, he was named president of Union College. President Miller ' s presence on campus acted as a catalyst for a great deal of reorganization, planning, and eventual growth of the college. For example, very early in his tenure, the president prepared the first issue of the Trustee Newsletter (June 15, 1959), an important means of communication between the campus and the trustees, which has appeared at least once a month and has played a notable role in involving the trustees more deeply in college affairs. Also, the campus was literally transformed by the projects undertaken during the 1960 ' s. The new construction included an additional wing to Pfeiffer Hall, the faculty housing project known as College Park, the Physical Education Building, the Student Center, a new men ' s residence hall, and an addition to College Courts. Baldwin Place was remodeled and Tye House completely renovated. Plans for the most recent building on campus, the science building, were made during this time even though its actual construction was delayed. The Board of Trustees surprised President Miller with a well-deserved honor: When the building was dedicated at Commencement, 1973, it was the Mahlon Miller Science Center. On September 23, 1982, Dr. Miller resigned from the presidency and chancellorship of the college. However, he offered to continue as president emeritus and work out of Louisville part-time, raising funds for the college, until May 31, 1983. In the meantime, a Central Management Team was appointed to direct the college. The team was made up of Edward H. Black, Director of Institutional Planning and Evaluation, as Chairman, with Robert D. Carey, Executive Vice-President; Dwight C. Stewart, Dean of the faculty; H. Warren Robbins, Dean of Graduate Academic Affairs; Boyd R. Todd, Business Manager and Treasurer; and Milton H. Townsend, Vice-President for College relations and Development, as members. The Reverend Dr. Jack Carter Phillips, former president of The National United Methodist Foundation for Christian Higher Education in Nashville, Tennessee, was elected president of Union College at a called meeting of the Board of Trustees of Union College in Lexington, Kentucky, on December 9, 1982. Dr. Phillips, who is 48, began his duties on January 3 on the campus where he received an honorary Doctor of Law Degree in 1981. Dr. Phillips earned the Bachelor ' s Degree at Birmingham-Southern College and the Master of Divinity Degree at Vanderbilt University. The inevitability of change has touched Union College once again in the 1982-83 year. Mahlon Miller and his wife, Laura, had quickly gained the liking and esteem, not only of the Trustees but also of the faculty and students, when they first came to Union. Likewise, Jack Phillips and his wife, Juanita, have already won many of the hearts which lie close to Union College. And so, as history seems to repeat itself in this sense, Union can look hopefully to a new future of planning, reorganization, and growth built upon the firm foundation which has already been laid. Jack C. Phillips President 1982- Dedication After 23 years, President Mahlon A Miller resigned as president of Union College. Dr Milier came to Union in 1955 as assistant to the president. In 1959, he was appointed president. Dr Miller has been a friend to the student and a leader to the campus Because of this, the 1983 Stespean staff dedicates this yearbook to Dr Mahlon A. Miller.

In contrast to last year ' s overall winning record, the team finished this year with an overall 4-7 season record. The Bulldogs lost several players to graduation before fall 1982. Only seven of the 17 members of the Union squad had played college soccer before. Out of the other 10 new players, only three had ever played soccer. Adding to the obstacle of inexperience were injuries to the team ' s two leading scorers, Mohammad Jahangiri and Stephen Nagbe. " I was pleased with the way our season turned out even though we had some trouble getting started, " Coach Inkster said. " I think after the first couple of games we began to play better as a team and learned from our mistakes. " Coaches Larry Inkster and Drew Pringle agree that with a year of experience behind the year. . things will only get better for Union College soccer next Mike Taylor passes the ball to another player.

Averaging 11.2 rebound, a game. Carter made the KIAC all-conference team. The team as a whole averaged 74.9 points per game and shot over 50%. One of the highlights of the season was the Bulldogs ' victory over Berea College by a score of 76-75. Union also used the good ol ' Bulldog bite on LMU in their last home game, winning 84-83 in overtime. This game was particularly memorable because it was the last home game for Coach Pete Moore. Coach Moore was pleased with the enthusiasm of the students and faculty, which was better this year than in previous years. He was also impressed by the turnout of Union fans at the KIAC tournament held at Berea. The team ' s play was greatly influenced by this kind of support. Basketball AI Gover jumps to put in two for Union. Coach Pete Moore gives instructions to the team. Tir _ J ■ I i r 1 » i , -, i m m THANKS, ! The added responsibilities Pete Moore has acquired during the past ten years cut into the time he could put into coaching the Union College Men ' s Basketball Team. " We need to bring someone new in and break them down a little, " he said. When Moore took over as head coach p rior to the 1962-63 season, his only duty besides coaching was teaching. Since then, he has become the Union College Athletic Director and the Head of the Department of Health and Physical Education. He will remain as Athletic Director and Head of the Department of Health and Physical Education so that the new coach will have more time with his players. He said, " I ' ve been thinking about it for several years. It is not just something that has come up out of the blue. " Moore said 21 seasons of coaching is enough. " You don ' t do some- thing for 21 years and not miss it some. But I think the basketball program needs some new blood — a younger, enthusiastic person, so that they can have a better program. " Dr. and Mrs. Pete Moore pose for their picture commemorating his 20 years of coaching. Women ' s 4$W, Left to right. First row: Lori Brockman, Lon Muncy, Nancy Barger, Jana Angel, and Lisa Johnson.

The Bullfrogs completed the 1983 season at the State Swim Cham- pionship Meet. Even though Union did not finish high in overall scor- ing, Coach Drew Pringle said he was pleased with his team ' s effort. " I thought our swimmers did a real good job and represented the college well. We are still in the early stages of building a strong swimming program here and I think we ' re off to a good start. " Byron Walker, team captain, (left), waits for the gun. Tennis Left to right. Coach Allan Green, Robert Troike, Ron Warf, Mike Smith, David Jackson, Crit Johns The Union College Tennis Team finished their regular season with a 2- 12-1 record. On Thursday, April 28, Union participated in the KIAC Tournament at Clinch Valley College with Johnson and Jackson win- ning at 2 doubles. It was the only victory for the Bulldogs after drawing 1 and 2 seeds in the singles draw. " We drew some tough opponents, " Coach Allen Green said, " but we played some good matches against real tough opponents We only lost one match out of the ones we should have won. " Union had to overcome bad weather all through April. Coach Allen Green attributes their inconsistent play to this. " It ' s been disappointing recordwise, but I think the guys have really improved a lot, particularly given all the practices and matches we have missed due to bad weather, " he said. Junior David Jackson smacks the ball back to his opponent. Baseball Left to right. First row: Joe Logan, Richard Rand, Mark Carson, Jeff Bundy, Scott George, Jeff Hensley, Mike Wilcher, and Coach Larry Inkster. Second row: John Gacesa, Rod Sears, Alvin Bailey, Ron Yanich, Kevin Solley, Jeff Allie, Jim Halter, Bill McDonald, and Kevin Kidd. Combining speed and power, the 1983 edition of Bulldog Baseball was one of the most exciting in recent years- After starting out very slowly, playing below .500 for much of the season, the Bulldogs finished strongly, winning their last nine games. These nine victories qualified them for the National Association of Intercollegiate AKIL (NAIA) District 32 Playoff and also earned them at least a tie for the K1AC. The season began with two trips to Alabama, one during spring break and the other a weekend trip later in March, which saw the Bulldogs come in second in the University of Montivallo Baseball Classic. This tough early-season competition laid the foundation for the type of baseball the Bulldogs would have to play later in the season. During their final nine games, the Bulldogs scored 116 runs, had 114 hits, hit 15 home : team record of .327, hit 41 home runs, and stole 124 bases in 142 attempts. i and stole 52 bases. For the season, the Bulldogs hit , Their final record of 20-15 included records of 12-4 in the conference and 15-7 in the district.
