Alfred Thompson

13 Jan

Was principal of the Normal School from  1910-1936. A popular and effective administrator by all accounts, today’s Thompson Hall is named after him. From a student tribute to him at his death we may: 

picture him striding up the campus walk, his black derby square on his head and his eyes intently considering the next turn of the weather or facing the Assembly, shoulders erect,  and his hands now toying with his glasses, now clasped tight behind his back as he advises, scolds, teases or entertains
