RESOLUTION ON JACOB HUGHES GRAVES, III The Board of Trustees notes with regret the termination of the services of JACOB HUGHES GRAVES, III as a member of the Board of Trustees of the University of Kentucky on June 30, 1973. Mr. Graves was appointed a member of the Board by Governor Wendell HI. Ford under legislation enacted by the 1972 General Assembly which changed the structure of the Board by removing the three ex-officio members and replacing them with appointive members. This same legislation also pro- vided for an additional member of the Board, thus increasing its size from eighteen to nineteen members. The legislation further provided that the four new members should be appointed for staggered terms and Mr. Graves' appointment was for a one year period only. In spite of the brevity of his term, he made his presence felt and his advice and counsel were most helpful and very valuable at all times. He was supportive of the University and its programs and generous with his time and talents. His knowledge of the world of finance made him a particularly valuable member of the Investment Committee of the Board. The Board of Trustees wishes to make it a matter of record that Mr. Graves was a most valued member of this Board during his all too brief tenure and that his contributions will be remembered with appreciation by all those who served with him. NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that this Resolution be adopted, spread upon the Minutes of the meeting, and a copy sent to Mr. Graves.
