Viewpoint: The Legacy Continues

It only seems fitting that after our last magazine celebrated the life of our beloved third president and chancellor emeritus, Dr. Clifton L. Ganus Jr., this issue’s cover story continues his amazing legacy. Dr. Ganus began his teaching career as a historian, later serving as chair of the department. In March 2017, his family established the Clifton L. Ganus Distinguished Chair of History and Poli ...

A century of memories

Compiled by Hannah Owens | Illustration by Jennifer Allen In 1919, Pattie Cobb Hall was built on the campus of what was Galloway Women’s College. Though the school closed in 1933, the building remained and became the home and dining location of students for many years at Harding. Today, it continues to be a home for female University students. Alumni shared their favorite memories of Pattie Cobb on Facebook in October to celebrate the building’s 100th year. Jenny Davis-Fall (’72) | I lived in Pattie Cobb my freshman and sophomore years! Loved it! Most important I met my husband in Pattie Cobb cafeteria in ’71 because we had to fill the tables! We have been married 47 years! Great memories!! ...

Field house of dreams

By Tom Buterbaugh | Photography by Jeff Montgomery To say that the new Huckeba Field House is large is an understatement. As the largest indoor football facility in Division II and one of the biggest in the country, it spans 133 yards with 77,146 square feet and an apex of 60 feet. Dedicated at Homecoming Oct. 19, one of the most special features of the project is how it came to be a reality. Sparked by a significant anonymous donation, the $5.5 million facility was funded entirely by private donations given by approximately 270 members of the Bison brotherhood — former and current players, alumni and friends of the football program.  A large turnout was on hand for the 11 a.m. ceremony held ...

‘Their deeds will follow them’

By Jantzen Haley | Photography by Jeff Montgomery It was clear to all who knew him that Dr. Clifton L. Ganus Jr. completed a great many deeds for the Lord, for Harding University, and for any and all with whom he interacted. He now rests from his labor, but his deeds truly live on, in part through the Endowed Chair of History and Political Science established in his name in March 2017. Dr. Kevin Klein, professor of history and political science, was named the first recipient of the endowed chair. Fall 2019 was an especially notable semester for the use of the endowment to fund multiple events surrounding the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall. Klein relates the process of creati ...

A new promise

By Megan Stroud | Photography by Jeff Montgomery The red door on the house on Moore Avenue in Searcy opens to a spacious, naturally-lit room with tall ceilings. Looking past the desks at the front, a large dining table and living room welcomes parents and children, no matter what their backgrounds may be. The house was previously Searcy Children’s Home, but, with the help of interior architecture and design students from the University, it is now a renovated space with a new purpose.  The trend of moving away from group homes and toward foster care left the former Searcy Children’s Home searching for a new way to stay involved with families in the community. After several years of plann ...

The distinguished teacher

By Raymond Muncy Jesus is the world’s most distinguished teacher. It was not an award that men presented to him but a recognition by millions who have sat at his feet for nearly 2,000 years.  He had no classroom, except the one the moment provided. It might be a hillside, a boat or a garden. He received no salary, and when John’s disciples asked for his credentials he responded, “the poor hav ...
