Class Year



South Strong -- "B. B. Special"

Jackson, KY

LL. B, Member Henry Clay Law Society, Union Literary Society, and University Masonic Club.

Never did Jackson have his equal. Fatally infected with the curse of Bloody Breathitt, once did he threaten the life of poor little Teddy Bear Vaughn, and since then no one has dared to cross him in any way. May God grant that he gets back to the hills of his birth without adding another notch to his gun barrel.

-The Kentuckian, 1910

South Strong (April 5, 1879* - November 29, 1939) was the son of Greenville Trimble Strong and Elvora Cecelia Cardwell. Strong was initially a school teacher before attending the College of Law. He practiced law in Breathitt County and was, at one time, the county attorney.
