DR. ,LOUIS ALLEN HIGLEY
Louis Allen Higley, was born' near VVilmot, Ohio, where he spent his boy--
hood days until he began his college course. 'He received ta license to ,teach
after attending a district school, but on accountfof his youth he did not use it
until he had almost completed a high school course. During the following
three years his time wa's devoted exclusively to teaching and private study,
then, for two years his vacations were spent in study atithe Ohio Normal Tfvie
versity. E After the. five years of teaching, he devoted his whole time to- Work
at the Ohio Normal University, receiving his A. B. degree in 1896, ln his
senior year h-e served as Curator of the Chemical Laboratory, and after gradu-
ation, as a vacation term instructor. Q' -. A tg
Upon the completion of his college course Dr. Higley accepted the position
of Commandant of The Bunker Hill Military Academy, Bunker Hill, Illinois.
For this work he had been prepared at the University. After remaining at the
military academy for two years, teaching Latin and Mathematics, he resigned
to take up graduate work at the University of Chicago in preparation for a
college pro-fessorship. During the SpanishlAmerican war Dr. Higley was
given the command of a company. The war closed before his company reach-
ed the front. Wliile pursuing the doctorate workat the University, of Chi-
cago, he earned his way by teaching for a short time at Purdue ,University in
the Chemistry department, and in the schools about Chicago. Receiving the
Doctor of Philos-ophy degree in 1907, he at once accepted a position- as Chemist
with the Kennicott Company, Chicago. In 1909 he resigned his positioiipas
Chief Chemist of the Kennicott Company to take up work in Mexico with, a
mining company. The operations of the company being interrupted by the
revolutions in Mexico, Dr. Higley decided to return to teaching. He accepted
the Chair of Chemistry in VVestminster, February 1, 1911, and is now Hlling
the position in a most creditable manner to himself and to lVestminster.
In 1903 Dr. Higley married Miss Carrie L. Bradley, who at the time of her
marriage was at the head of a private music school in Philadelphia, Penn. ' Dr.
and Mrs. Higley have four children.
Dr. Higley has received a broad education. He is thoroughly acquainted not
only with Chemistry and Geology but also with many other fields of knowledge.
His versatility helps him to be a most excellent teacher. Dr. Higley does not
confine his work to the class-room but he labors in all departments 'of
student life. He is especially interested in the literary societies and in the
public speaking contests of the college.
Dr. Higley has at heart the welfare of every student. He is urging the stu-
dents in public and in private to shun every evil and to hold to every good. A
man himself-gentle, temperate, fearless of evil, a disciple of Christ-Dr.
Higley helps the students to make real men of themselves. The influence of
such professors as he, makes a college training truly worth while.
