Class Year



Leslie Lee Guyn, LL.B.

Lexington, Kentucky

Pi Kappa Alpha; Varsity Football; Baseball; Henry Clay Law Society.

"A harmless wight, despite his threatening mien." "Les" has seriously considered allowing the University to confer several degrees upon him, but after much casting about he picked upon the good "Judge" as the easiest mark and took a chance at law. Honestly, no one can figure out how he expects to make a living at the bar, but "Les" is a favorite child of Dame Fortune, if there ever was one, and she surely will not forsake him this legal venture. His fame rests secure upon that wonderful drop kick from a flowing field of mud in 1911, which saved the day from Central. May his luck never leave him!

-The Kentuckian, 1914
