Richmond, Kentucky

Phi Alpha Delta; Berea Club; Democratic Club; Old Madison.

Bailey’s even temperament and loyal heart have endeared him to all his brothers-in-law. Not meaning to be personal at all, but we believe that Bailey has had sufficient experience to determine whether “it is better to have loved and lost” since we see him wearing a returned solitaire.

-The Kentuckian, 1922
