This is not peculiar to the intelligentsia of any given community, but also to those who have not been ex- posed to the various arts and sciences of learning. It has been truly said, " no man can rise higher than he thinks, neither can his suc- cess be any greater than his ambition, and if he does not work for the better things of life, his future destiny lies in the hands of chance . " Today we are justly proud of the fact that our institutions of learning have sought beyond the realm of imagination to train men, and women for useful and profitable services, both to God, and their fellowmen. We cannot help but turn our minds to one of the most outstanding seats of learning in our country. The Florida Normal and Industrial Memorial College stands with unquestionable air, as a beacon light among the gallaxy of universal schools of learning. To this college young men, and women of almost every land pay tribute, for the contribution it has made to their lives. This book is hereby named in remembrance of one of the most profound benefactors of Florida Normal and Industrial Memorial College. Reference is made to Mr. A. L. Lewis, who was born on March 29, 1865, in West Florida. His initiative and zeal served as stepping stones to greater heights of achievements, and placed him among our greatest men in the business world. He was one of the founders of the Afro-American Life Insurance Company, which under his efficient leadership, has become one of the most formid- able insurance companies in America. He was particularly interest- ed in the economic, social and cultural life of the Negro. With those factors uppermost in his mind, he laboured untiringly, and eventual- ly founded the Afro-American Pension Bureau, The American Beach (near Jacksonville), and the Lincoln Club. At the main entrance of the college there is an exquisite piece of architecture, an arch. It stands as a living monument, symbolizing one of the many gifts which this generous patriot has made to beauti- fy our campus. It is constructed of masonry, reminiscent of the indomitable courage, untiring patience, and christian fortitude with which the giver has served his race. It is affectionately known as the Lewis Memorial Arch, and for this reason, the yearbook bears the name, " The Arch " . It is sincerely hoped that this book will serve as an incentive to our youth to enter the gateway of learning and drink of the reservoir of knowledge provided within the walls of this institution. Florida Normal and Industrial Memorial College will always be endeared by the ardent admirers of Mr. Lewis, and songs of gratitude will be sung down the corridors of time by its students. Mother Dorothy E. Littlejohn Mother Christine Valentine DEDICATION It is our unique privilege to enjoy personal contact with two of the pioneers of this college community. One of these pathfinders is Mother Christine Valentine who was born in Waycross, Ga. At twenty years of age she moved to Jack- sonville, Florida. For thirty-five years she has dedicated to this institution and community her keen insight, patient labor, prayer- ful devotion, superb guidance, and rich experiences. The other pioneer, Mother Dorothy Littlejohn was born in New- port, R. I. in 1877. She later moved to Boston, Massachusetts. For thirty years she has dedicated her New England refinement, lofty standards, and faithful service to this institution. Because of our sincere appreciation of these profound pioneer ' s faithful and indefatigable service, we the class of 1952 dedicate to them this yearbook -- THE ARCH. FLORIDA NORMAL SONG I. As the breeze through moss-hung trees Seems to sing thy sacred name Thy sons and daughters love to spread O ' er all the land thy well earned fame. II. We love thy halls, coquina walls And the friends who gave thee birth, The truth we learned as each heart yearned For higher, nobler things on earth. III. Should future years bring joy or tears, To thy name we ' ll e ' er be true. To thee, we pledge our loyalty And dedicate our lives to you. CHORUS Florida Normal! Florida Normal! How we love to sing thy praise ! We ' ll be loyal; ever loyal. And for thee our voices raise. Marie Evangeline Ferguson CAMPUS BUILDINGS ANDERSON HALL This is the building in which we studied hard for four long years. Although there were many errors, strikes, and sometimes " strike-outs " , somehow, we made a home- run within these walls. BACON HALL Yes, for two jampacked years, we the young ladies spent eager, enthusiastic moments studying, singing and enjoying the fellowship of various activities. Here we explored new avenues of life that may be forgotten by few but remembered by many. FISHER HALL Fisher Hall recalls the exciting moments where many hours were spent in the development of an ap- preciation for finer woman- hood and culture. May these who move into the new home follow in our footsteps. THE PRESIDENTS MESSAGE Dear Seniors: This year marks the 60th anniversary of our existence as an institu- tion of higher learning. Many changes have occurred since the first stu- dents were enrolled in Bethel Baptist Church, Jacksonville, Florida, in 1892, which marked the beginning of our institution. You are the seventh class to graduate since we have become a four- year college. Scattered throughout the world are members of the Florida Normal College Alumni. They are torch bearers in our march of pro- gress; the tangible products of our teachings. The record of our school is marked by your failure or success as citizens. As you go into this world of confusion, bearing the imprint of our edu- cational efforts, we firmly hope that your standards will be guided by our basic philosophy and that your years spent here will be perpetuated by the memories and purposeful activities of which you were a part. May success in the things more excellent reward your endeavors, and in years to come may you look upon the work of our founders and in earnest truth say: " I, too, have fought a good fight. I, too, have kept the faith. " Sincerely yours, R. W. Puryear President Reverend W. L. Storrs, Jr. Di- rector of Religious Life, B. D.

AND SMILE 22 SENIOR CLASS HISTORY On a warm September day in 1948 we boarded our ship and prepared for " a long jour- ney. Our crew came from many different and far-away places. There were one hundred and five of us when we set sail. Bus as we approached the deep water some became weary. Others went out on deck to catch a breath of fresh air, and a sudden gust of wind came and caught them up and forced them overboard. It was left with those of us who remained to carry on. This we did with reasonable success. Among our achievements we can point to two publications of the " Freshman Whip " , with Ulysses Lane as our cap- tain and Lula Bridges as co-captain. At the end of nine months we drifted into Sopho- more Island for supplies and a much needed rest. Three months elapsed before the crew boarded ship again to set out on another voy- age. Having gone but a short distance, we discovered that a few had not returned. New members came, however, to take their places. Two months rolled by without any news from land. At last in November the news was rushed to us that a queen was needed to reign at Florida Normal Industrial Memorial College. The cable stated also that she who reigns must possess brains as well as beauty. The crew put their heads together and selected Catherine Phillips. A week later we learned that Catherine Phillips was chosen to reign at Florida Normal. After five months of sailing upon storm-ridden seas we drifted toward Junior Island. Upon arrival there we discovered that it was inhabited. Desiring the island for ourselves, we set out to convince the inhabitants that the island just beyond was even more beauti- ful than this one. They left in search of this isle of beauty called Senior-Land and as we waved farewell to them they sailed out of sight leaving us behind. We remained here for nine long, long months. They were not very exciting months. The Junior- Senior Prom was the highlight of our sojourn here. Our eyes soon turned toward Senior-Land in search of new activities, responsibilities, and, most of all, new adventure. We found what we were looking for. From Senior Land we sent one queen to reign over Florida Normal and another to reign over the May Day activities. We had a Prom, a play, a yearbook, a Class Night . . . wrote many a lesson plan, sold several ads. . .and did many other things which we dare not mention! Those were the days! We must leave now. The Captain has ordered the gangplank to be lowered. Our ship has been a good one. It has borne us through many a stormy sea. And as we stand and see her sail away we must say in parting that we have been fortunate indeed. We can face life, now, unafraid! 23 SUPERLATIVES Boy Girl S. Brooks Most Studious M . Wilson M.

Prior to this time there was no sorority on this campus. Big Sister Alpha H. Moore of Jacksonville, Florida, through a charter given her by the National Officers of the Zeta Phi Beta Sorority in Wash- ington, D. C. decided to confer this honor on Florida Normal. We consider this great sorority an excellent asset to our " Big Sisters " as well as to our college. " Finer Womanhood " is our aim and we will live up to its ideals.

World progress began with Gutenberg ' s invention of movable type and press about 1 440, and printing since then by recording and distributing knowledge, has built our institutions, our economics, our government, in fact, it has built our whole present day intellectual and social struc- ture as no other human service could have done.
