"Mac" made a huge mistake in his young life when he entered "Centre." But that was not for long. He is now in the safekeeping of Judge Lafferty. He is a basketball tosser of no little ability, and can chew the blackest and meanest tobacco of any male student in the university. He will be missed by his host of friends after he leaves us in June.

-The Kentuckian, 1920
