History

The Theological Class of 1904 was conceived by Cumberland University in the fall of 1901. Three years of labor have brought us forth.

We came from the plains of Texas, the tobacco fields of Kentucky, the ends of Tennessee, the wildernesses of Arkansas, the green fields of Washington and the sunflower beds of Kansas.

Our coming has not been in vain. The University is not just as it was when we found it; we are not just as we were when it found us.

Stormy have been our class meetings; diversified have been our ideas; divided have been our sentiments; but united we go forth. We were an untried sixteen. We are a tried and true fourteen. We filled our place in the beginning. We more than filled it in the end. Now we are ready to fill our places in the pulpit; also the places of others in the pew.

We have all leanred to (e)-labor-(ate). Some of us would amen(d) everything. One of our number is a Le(e)per. Our Poe[ts] are T. M. Will, and Hoite Spears. In our W(o)est-(emeyer) [minster] Ab(n)[b]ey we have a Totten-[tot]. Wozencraft, Trousdale and Mitchell are our misnomers, Lew-(is) our water Log-(an)[d] Clack is our Gard[e]ner. All together we have been called a o-y 4-teen.

Those who know best can testify that at the rattling of the Bone[s] and the ringing of the Bell we were ready for work. But on examination day our thoughts were Far(r) away. On our journey we lost a Hub(bert), but we had graciously be Stowe(d) upon us a Hen(ry). Although we barely touched the Green we labored with some enthusiasm to Foster our Step-hens until ap-Pear(son)[ed] the dawn of graduation day.
