Class Year



Ethelbert Reed Wilson -- "May"

Lexington, KY

LL. B., Mystic Thirteen Glee Club, Henry Clay Law Society.

Mr. Wilson held the record during his senior year of being able to use more big words on certain special occasions than any other man of his years and capacity. He is indeed a lover of all things that are dear to the heart of a true Kentuckian and knows how to Fry all who cross him on love's solitary path.

-The Kentuckian, 1910
