FOREWORD Our aim in the publication of " The Owl " for the year 1959 is to do some- thing more than merely present a historical record of the school year. We have tried to reflect the ideals, the hopes, the aspirations, and above all, that in- definable quality called " spirit, " which motivate our school. RpjrifJm ummramhm 6191 f iJ 3ll We hope to have portrayed Memphis University School as it really is. If in the years to come this portrayal reminds the graduates of M. U. S. of the debt of gratitude that they owe this institution; and if in this yearbook we have preserved the pleasant memories and hallowed recollections of this school year, then we shall feel that " The Owl " of 1959 is a success.

DEDICATION COL. ROSS M. LYNN To our headmaster, Col. Ross M. Lynn, this 1959 edition of the Memphis University School annual is respectfully dedicated. No man achieves any great deal of success without complete self-dedication to his chosen profession. Such self-dedication is Col. Lynn ' s. From only a dream five or six years ago, to a small but determined beginning, to the present institution. Col. Lynn has guided Memphis University School towards that des- tiny which we believe to be reserved for it - the distinction of being one of the finest college preparatory schools in the country. He has had help from a fine board of directors, an excellent faculty, and many devoted patrons. But the everyday, hour by hour supervision of the school; the attention to the hundreds of small matters and the many important decisions, of every day and every week; the immediate respon- sibility, in other words, for the success of our plans - has been his and his alone. He has met that respon- sibility, and is continuing to meet it, with unflagging determination and with splendid results. Col. Lynn possesses a high regard for scholarship, together with a vast understanding of the way in which many young men feel about the same subject. He welcomes and is impressed by perfection, but does not demand it. He expects an excellent job of teaching from every member of the faculty, but al- lows each teacher ' s own professional judgment to determine the methods and the texts to be used. And in dealing with his students, he uses but one philosophy: fairness; the good of the student; and the good of the school. Today, the students at M. U. S. regard Col. Lynn as a good teacher and a good headmaster. In later years, they will realize that he was something more. He was, and he is, a good friend.
