. . . The State Is Our Campus
Located in Lexington, an urban community of over 155,000 population in  
the heart of KCIIT.-LICKYYS famed Blue Grass region, University of Kentucky is a
state—supported, land—grant institution which celebrated its centennial year in
The present school, which has an enrollment of approximately 28,000 stu-
dents and now offers instruction in 10 academic colleges plus a Graduate School
and a Community College system of 13 centers, had its beginnings in 1865 when
it was established as a part of old Kentucky University. This action by the State
Legislature united sectarian and public education under one organization for
the hrst time. Federal funds authorized under the Morrill Act were used to de- —
velop agriculture and mechanical arts within KU and, in 1878, A8cM College
was separated from KU to become a separate state institution on the general site
of what is now the 706 acre main campus. Name changes in 1908 and 1916
resulted in the title by which the school is now known.
It is fully accredited in its respective colleges and departments by all of the
major professional societies and educational organizations.
President of the University is Dr. Otis A. Singletary, ~f8, who came to Lex»
ington in 1969 from the University of Texas, Austin, where he was executive
vice chancellor for academic affairs.
Dr. Singletary, who is eighth president of the University, served a total of ‘
eight years at Texas, progressing during seven (1954-61) of those years from  I
instructor to professor, associate dean of Arts and Sciences and assistant to the
president. Then for five years (1961-66), he was chancellor of the University of
North Carolina, although he was on leave from October 1964 to january 1966
to serve as director of the job Corps, Office of Economic Opportunity.

Kentucky’s athletic program, a well-balanced and ambitious activity featur-
ing inter-collegiate competition in ten different sports, is organized under the
Department of Athletics and a corporation known as the University of Kentucky
Athletics Association.
The program is conducted without overemphasis or sacrifice of educational
objectives and in strict compliance with the rules of the University, the South-
. eastern Conference and the National Collegiate Athletic Association.
A board of directors, headed by the President of the University in the ca-
pacity of chairman, maintains overall policy supervision of the athletic program.
I In addition to the UK President, board officers include the Vice—President for
Student Affairs as vice-chairman and Dr. W. L. Matthews in the capacity of sec-
retary. Fourteen other men, drawn from the University faculty and the general
public, also serve on the board as appointees of the president as does a student
9 Supervising the steady growth and balanced development of the athletic
l program is Athletic Director Harry C. Lancaster.
I The Association’s Board of Directors is composed of the following:
; Chairman (President) Dr. Stephen Diachun
l Vice Chairman (V. P. Stt1. Affairs) Dr. Lyman Ginger
Dr. XV. L. Matthews, jr., Secretary l)on Sullivan (K-Men`s President)
Dr. Ralph Angelucci Dr. A. D. Kirwan
Dr. Donald Leigh Dr.   L. Massie
Dr. Thomas Brower ]ames H. Pence
(Student Representative) Dr. N.   Pisacano

Dr. Glen Creech Floyd Wright
Kentucky’s athletic complex off Cooper Drive was named "The Bernie A.
Shively Sports Center" in April, 1969, in memory of the distinguished \Vildcat
director of athletics who died of a heart attack at his home December lf), 1967.
Shively joined the Kentucky staff in 1927 as football line coach, following
a brilliant athletic career at Illinois. An All-American as a blocking guard for
Red Grange, he also was Big Ten heavyweight wrestling champion and a track
 ( standout.
In 1933, he was appointed head of the UK Physical Education Department,
  and five years later became director of athletics. He continued coaching until
l9—l6, handling football, track and baseball at various times.
Under his leadership, Kentucky greatly expanded and improved its physical
facilities and developed a fine athletic program.

Director Of Athletics
Harry C. Lancaster is back on the UK athletic scene after an ailment which
required a long hospital stay.
The veteran coach bounced back quickly and the athletic ship of state con-
tinued to ru11 smoothly, as it has since he was named acting AD in September
1968 and permanent AD three mo11ths later.
One of the lirst challenges facing Lancaster during his "acting" tenure was
to obtain a football coach to replace Charlie Bradshaw, who resigned unex-
pectedly. Lancaster and his screening committee worked hard to come up with
a unanimous choice—]ohn Ray-—which pleased people throughout Kentucky. The
new coach and the AD have worked together closely to upgrade the \iVildcat {
football program.
Lancaster has also applied his energies in other areas, beefing up the spring
sports program by re-surfacing the running track and adding bleachers, hiring
young Ron Huebner as swim coach and Dick Parsons as baseball coach. He also A
talked Richard Vimont into remaining as tennis coach. i

ball’s winningest coach Adolph Rupp. However, he gave up coaching duties

 after the 1968-69 season and concentrated all his attention on the over-all ath-
letics program.
His association with Rupp began after he was discharged from the U.S. Navy
as a lieutenant (sg) in 1946 and has been one of mutual respect and harmony.
Rupp, who always prides himself as one who ’surrounds myself with the best
people for the job at hand," made Lancaster a full assistant in 1948. During the
two previous years, the youthful veteran had busied himself by serving as part-
time assistant while carrying on teaching duties and studying for a master’s de-
The dual duties, plus extra studies, were second nature to Lancaster, who
had served as assistant football and basketball coach at Georgetown College
3 (1932-38) and Paris High School (1933-34), head basketball coach at Bagdad
l High School (1934-36) and principal and coach at Gleneyrie High School
4 (1986-42) and physical education instructor at UK in 1942. He was to continue
1 that trend of carrying extra loads, serving as UK’s baseball coach for 17 seasons
prior to relinquishing the post following the 1965 campaign and teaching a physi-
cal education class during the past 18 years.
ln his own right, Lancaster has traveled extensively and received a signal
honor when he was invited to prepare the Greek National Basketball Team for
the 1958 Olympics. .—\ six-week tour in Athens was cancelled when Lancaster was
asked to stay home and serve as acting athletics chief of staff.
Traveled To Greece In 1951
Lancaster had traveled to Greece in the summer of 1951 on a special ath-
letic assigmuent for the U.S. State Department. The mission called for him to
{ICI as an advisor to Greek Basketball Federation officials in Olympic procedures
and other matters. He also conducted numerous clinics and coaching schools and
gave public lectures on the cage sport. During the summer of 1962, he helped
Coach Rupp conduct clinics for Army personnel in the Far East Theater and
worked with Rupp on the team’s Miclclle East Tour in 1966 and a clinic in
Germany in the summer of 1967.
It is ironic that Lancaster gained greatest fame in basketball, since he
always considered himself a better football player. He was an all-conference
halfback for three straight years and captain during his last two seasons at
Georgetown College and also played semi-pro ball in Louisville and Cincinnati.
His success on the basketball court was equally great. however, as he earned three
all-conference nominations and two team captaincies. As zi coach, he guided
Z Kentucky yearlings to 204 victories, against only 57 losses, against formidable
competition that included the more elite junior college clubs and top-notch
service teams during 18 seasons. He posted respectable records as a base-
ball coach and gave the school its winningest seasons in history by posting
identical 18-8 marks in 1959-1960.
A native of Paris, Ky., Lancaster attended Paris High School, where he
lettered in football, basketball and baseball under Coach Blanton Collier. At
1 Georgetown College, he was president of Kappa Alpha Social Fraternity and the
1 Student Body during his senior year.

Entering his second year as chief of the 'Wildcat football fortunes, john Ray
has become one of the Commonwealtlrs better known citizens. His doctrine
and philosophy have been spread throughout the state by personal appearances
which took him to small hamlets and crossroads as well as metropolitan areas.
Ray came to UK in December 1968 from Notre Dame, where he was assist-
ant head football coach.
He shocked the football world early in his Hrst season in Lexington by engi-
neering a 10-9 upset over the powerful Rebels of Ole Miss. However, the former
Notre Dame aide knew he had inherited a squad lacking in over-all size and
speed. One of his hrst steps after assuming the UK post was to seek help in
key areas; some of the freshmen he recruited will step into starting varsity roles
this season. They should shore up such glaring weaknesses as occurred last season  
in the offensive line, defensive backfield and kicking game. °
Ray set no timetable at UK; he merely stated he wanted a winner right away
and had a three-fold goal: Get in the Top Ten national ranking, win the South- ,
eastern Conference championship and participate in a bowl game. .
A native of South Bend, Ray graduated from john Adams High School in
june 1944 and was a regular center three months later at Notre Dame.

 He joined the paratroopers, served in the Pacific and returned to Notre
Dame in time for spring practice in 1947. He transferred to Olivet College in
Michigan, where he played three seasons of football and also was afforded an
opportunity to be a student assistant on the coaching staff of Frank Ham, who
had moved up from john Adams High.
Ray received his bachelor’s degree in history at Olivet and then coached
in Michigan for five years, first at Sturgis High School and then at Three Rivers.
He gave Three Rivers its Hrst state championship team. He became an assistant at
the University of Detroit for four years and then assumed the position of head
coach at john Carroll University in Cleveland.
As head coach at john Carroll from 1959-63, he masterminded a very success-
ful small college program (29 wins and six losses) and set several national records
in defense, putting together his tactical methods of offense and defense which
brought recognition in national coaching circles.
Ray was at john Carroll in 1964 when Parseghian was brought to Notre
Dame from Northwestern. Parseghian chose Ray as his chief defensive assistant
and persuaded the South Bend native to leave his head coaching position at john
Immediately after arriving in the Blue Grass, Ray promised Kentuckians
they would be pleased and surprised at his coaching staff. He then proceeded
to recruit outstanding assistants from such places as Bucknell, Michigan, Navy,
Connecticut and Notre Dame.
The next move was to "paint up, fix up" football offices in the Coliseum and
Sports Center. Beautiful indoor-outdoor carpeting was added to the Center,
along with other improvements.
Ray also fulfilled speaking engagements throughout Kentucky and in other
states and sparked an enthusiasm which was evidenced best by advance ticket
sales to WVildcat games.
A member of the Catholic Church, he received his Master’s Degree from the
University of Michigan in educational guidance and counseling. Ray is married
to the former Barbara Fuller of Muncie, Ind. They have four children: jeff (born
in 1954), Kathy (1956), Debora (1958) and Chris (1960).
