DR. OTIS A. SINGLETARY

The University of Kentucky has become one of the major institutions of higher learning in the United States under the leadership of Dr. Otis Singletary, the eighth president of the University.
Dr. Singletary was named president
Athletics Department
CLIFFORD O. HAGAN Director
Expansion of the football training room and addition of a beautiful player's lounge at Shively Sports Center, new carpeting in the stadium football offices, a new basketball office complex in Memorial Coliseum, re-arrangement of the baseball fences and a new surface for the running track are just a few of the recent improvements that signify the continuing progress of UK athletics since Cliff Hagan joined the Wildcat Staff seven years ago.
Recognized nationally as a progressive, business-oriented and promotion-minded administrator, Hagan has seen and overseen vast improvements in all phases of an ever-expanding operation that has encompassed 16 sports since the men's and
of the University in August, 1969. He had previously served as executive vice-chancellor for academic affairs in the University of Texas System and director of the Job Corps program for the Office of Economic Opportunity.
Dr. Singletary, a native of Gulfport, Miss., holds degrees from Millsaps College and Louisiana State University.
As president of the principal institu-
women's programs were merged in July of last year.
The merger, under Hagan's direction, has been orderly, with office space remodeled and in some cases created to make room for the women's coaching and administrative staff.
The indoctrination of Hagan into the UK   athletics   administrative structure
tion of higher learning in the Commonwealth, Dr. Singletary is greatly concerned with the University's role as a land-grant institution, a "people's university" accessible to all who can profit from education.
In the nine years he has been president, the University has grown to where there are now more than 22,000 students on the Lexington campus and more than 17,000 students in UK's 13 community colleges, and the University has become one of the major research institutions in the country.
Recognition of his service to the University was evidenced by the UK Alumni Association, which presented to Dr. Singletary its Alumni Service Awardan honor rarely bestowed upon a non-alumnus of the University.
Dr. Singletary is the author of two books and several monographs.
A Navy veteran of World War II and the Korean Conflict, he is a commander in the U. S. Naval Reserve. He and Mrs. Singletary, the former Gloria Walton, have three children: Bonnie, Scot and Kendall.
The Singletarys live at Maxwell Place, traditional home of UK presidents.
came in 1972, when he was named assistant to Harry C. Lancaster and given the task of implementing the Blue & White Fund for 57,600-seat Commonwealth Stadium and later for Rupp Arena. The fruits of his labors in this area have provided the additional financial support that has elevated the UK athletics program, into a first class operation.
Hagan was named Athletics Director in July 1975 following Lancaster's retirement.
Hagan also has been an advocate of a strong scholar-athlete program, feeling "a genuine commitment to provide all the academic support and encouragement we can to help our athletes leave our campus with a college education and a degree."
On the personal side, Hagan received one of his highest individual honors last May when he became the first University of Kentucky basketball player to be installed in the Naismith Memorial National Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass.
He is married to the former Martha Milton of Owensboro. They have four children: Lisa, Laurie, Amy, and Kip. FRANK HAM

FRANK HAM became Assistant Director of Athletics in July 1975 soon after Cliff Hagan succeeded Harry C. Lancaster as Director of Athletics.
A native of Scranton, Pa., Ham came to the University in 1969 as administrative Assistant to footpall coach John Ray, and was reassigned to the Athletic Director's staff in 1972 when Ray resigned.
Ham graduated from high school at Niles, Michigan, and completed his undergraduate work at Indiana University and coached high school football and track at John Adams High in South Bend in 1944-46 and then returned to Olivet as athletic director and head football and basketball coach.
In 1951, he became assistant to the president at Olivet, with responsibilities in public and alumni relations. He was in private business from 1954 until 1968.
