THREE YOUNG MEN
Ben Guise completed all the work for his doctorate in education at the end of May,
including the acceptance of his dissertation, his "orals" etc. We are now
calling him Dr. Guise, although he will not be hooded until the August commence-
ment. Dr. Guise will then leave immediately for Indiana where he has accepted
a position at Purdue University.
Ken Ferstl will begin work on his doctorate at the University of Indiana this fall.
Ken and Sondra have already left Denton, with Mischief and Missy, their two
poodles. Ken, whose home is in Reedsburg, Wisconsin, completed his first degree
at North Texas graduating with honors in May 1963 with a major in music and a
minor in L.S. He went to the University of Wisconsin library school for his
Master's degree, taught there, and then worked two years as cataloger at
Oshkosh Public Library. He came back to North Texas to teach in what was
then the Department of Library Service in June 1969. While at NTSU he served
as sponsor of Alpha Beta Alpha and of the Graduate Students in Library and
Information Sciences (GSLIS). The SLIS faculty had a dinner for Mr. and Mrs.
Ferstl at Holiday Inn on July 12.
Rodney Hutton who received his M.L.S. from NTSU in June 1967, has resigned his
position at the Library of Congress and will begin teaching in SLIS next fall.
Rodney, Pat and little Terri Lea, who will be two this month, have already
moved to Denton. Mr. Hutton was a descriptive cataloger in the serial records
division of the Library of Congress. Next fall he will teach L.S. 400 (Re-
ference) and L.S. 521 (Cataloging) and in the spring we hope he will teach the
serials course (L.S. 527).
ONE YOUNG WOMAN
Our visiting teacher this summer was Mrs. Julia King Avant (Mrs. James Avant),
who has been teaching in Louisiana State University, but who will be the Director
of Graduate Library Studies at Northwestern State College of Louisiana, Natchitoches,
next fall. Dr. Avant was awarded her Ph.D. from Indiana University this last
spring. She and Dr. Motley are both from Monroe, Louisiana, and had known each
SANDRA KIMBRO AND THE OLNEY PROJECT
Sandra Warne Kimbro, doctoral student in the School of Library and Information
Sciences, and a former librarian at Dallas Baptist College, is attending school
while working with a federally supported research and demonstration project in
Olney. The grant was awarded to NTSU for a study of the feasibility of merging
school and public library facilities in a rural community. The three-year $100,000
project - "A Community Center Merging Public and School Library Services in Olney,
Texas" - is administered by Dr. James A. Kitchens, of the NTSU Department of
Sociology and Anthropology. Sandra's $3,500 research assistantship allows her to -
work on a third degree from NTSU while working half-time as the professional con-
sultant on the project from the library angle. "I have the topic for my doctoral
dissertation," she says! Sandra (who is Mrs. Jim Kimbro, 1500 W. Oak, Denton, and,
incidentally, Jo Kimbro's sister-in-law) has both a B.A., with a major in history,
and the M.L.S. degree from North Texas.
ARTHUR M. SAMPLEY
Dr. A.M. Sampley, former librarian of NTSU and director of the then Library
Service Department, 1944-195) retired from North Texas this summer as distinguished
professor of English. The Board of Regents in June named him as University Pro-
fessor of Poetry for 1972-73. Dr. Sampley's book, SELECTED POEMS, 1937-1971, was
the first publication of the North Texas University Press last fall. This spring
the book won the poetry award of the Texas Institute of Letters, and was added to
the NTSflIQibra as the 900,000th volume.
