Class Year



Orin Coomes Walker, LL.B.

Ekron, Kentucky

Union Literary Society; Masonic Club; Henry Clay; Lieutenant '15.

"Prep" is the last of the old school, the last of that ancient political party known as the "Old Guard," with its unlimited powers known only to those unfortunate enough to be the wheels of that famous "steam roller." Class elections were blood-thirsty in those days; a class squabble was nothing less than a miniature war. But time has changed "Prep" into a student. Now and then he even honors a lady fair with his knightly presence.

-The Kentuckian, 1920
