Class Year



Richard Vinson Garred

Louisa, Ky.

LL.B.; Sigma Alpha Epsilon; D. D. L.; Henry Clay Law Society.

"Quiet and unassuming, but still water runs deep." "Dick" is a manly youth, having received much good training from Uncle Sam at West Point. He has been here three years, delving into the profound mysteries of the law. It will be hard to tell just when his "first case" is pleaded, because there seems to be an affinity between him and girls, which began nobody knows when. He came with a reputation as a "ladies' man," and he has lived nobly up to it. But this is not all. Dick is a student, and will make good in his profession. He is a jolly good fellow, whom everybody likes.

-The Kentuckian, 1912
