John William McKenzie, LL.B.

LaGrange, Kentucky

Alpha Tau Omega; Law Debating Team; Union Literary Society; Henry Clay; Democratic Club; Royal Order of Fish.

Mack is one of the charter members of the Fish Club and he certainly lives up to the requirements of the club. His specialty is "Herring." John is another of the soldier boys who came back to the old stamping ground at the cessation of hostilities. He is a quiet lad, but the best-natured ever, and he will be missed by scores of friends when he leaves in June.

-The Kentuckian, 1920
