NEWSPAPER TIDBIT: Danville Students Attending College (1920)

from The Republican (Danville, Indiana) – issue of Thursday, September 2, 1920 – page 5, column 3:

The exodus of Danville young people for colleges throughout the middle west has begun, and from all indications the number going this year will far exceed any other previous year. The greatest number are going to Purdue, Indiana and DePauw.

Otis Gulley, Jr., Mary Edwards and May Masten have already left for Purdue to take up their work. Mildred Harrison, Irene Thompson, Margaret Scearce, Bernice O’Brien and Glendon Scearce will leave for Lafayette the latter part of the week to enter Purdue.

Robert Hollowell, Jr. leaves Wednesday to take up his work at Indiana. Benjamin Harrison will continue his studies at the I.U. medical school. Darwin Thomas, Estie Hunt and Milburn Easley are planning to leave the latter part of next week to enter I.U.

Unity Thomas will return to DePauw this year to complete her college course, and Donald Hogate will also take up work at DePauw. John Harvey and Harold Cook of the D.H.S. 1920 class will enter DePauw as freshmen. Harvey is one of the 100 honor students of the state and will receive a Rector scholarship.

Jeannette Wilson and Ann Martha Osborn will re-enter Earlham College at Richmond the latter part of next week.

Lucile Nichols will leave the last of the month for Ann Arbor to enter Michigan University. Mary Agnes Showalter will resume her studies at Butler College next week. Lorine Brill will return to St. Marys-of-the-Woods for another year, and Maurice Kirk will enter a chiropractic school in Davenport, Ia., the middle of September.
