William Bryan Martin, LL.B.

South Carrollton, Kentucky

Assistant Manager Varsity Baseball Team (3).

When we speak of Bill it is with reverence—he forgot his bachelor friends and got married. We once knew Bill personally and in those days he could drink as much suds as the best of us; but now he is blissfully sailing the seas of matrimony. He has two purposes in life, his degree, and to provide for other things. My, how times have changed.

-The Kentuckian, 1920
