Alfred Leland Crabb manuscript of Lodging at the Saint Cloud.
"Crabb was the son of James Wade, a farmer, and Annie Arbuckle Crabb. He spent his elementary years in a one-room school at Plum Springs. In 1906, he embarked on an academic career and was subsequently educated at Bethel College, George Peabody College (today a part of Vanderbilt University), the University of Chicago, and Columbia University. He received his Ph.D. in 1925 from Peabody. In 1911 he married Bertha Gardner. They had one son.
Interspersed with the years of his formal education, he was teacher and later principal at several rural schools in Kentucky and Louisiana. After receiving his doctorate, he taught at what is now Western Kentucky University, where he soon became dean. In 1927 Peabody president Bruce Payne invited Crabb back to Peabody, where he became professor of education, retiring in 1949. Crabb assumed the editorship of the Peabody Journal of Education in 1932, a position he retained until 1970. For this publication, and for the Peabody Reflector, he wrote hundreds of articles, essays, editorials, and poems."
