George Bain Morrison

Lexington, Ky.

LL.B.; Sigma Nu; Henry Clay Law Society; D. D. L.

"We've had a great time You'll all agree." "Foxes have holes, the birds of the air have nests," but if there is any place on this mundane sphere where restless spirits find permanent abode, Bain has not yet discovered it. Possessed of a wandering disposition and love of adventure, he has flitted from place to place, and at least become convinced that "the West is his home." Bain is decidedly literary and has the rare ability of adapting himself to any situation. He might have been a Robin Hood or a Robespierre; while, had he been in Utah when Mormonism was in flower, Brigham Young would have been a bachelor.

-The Kentuckian, 1912
