3 University of Mississippi History
Chartered on February 24, 1 844, the University of Mississippi began its first session on November 6, 1848, with a faculty of four members offering instruction in a general curriculum in the liberal arts. Continually strengthening this college of liberal arts, the trustees and the faculty sought to broaden the work of the institution as named. In accordance with this purpose the School of Law was opened in 1854 during the presidency of Augustus Baldwin Longstreet. His successor, Frederick A. P. Barnard, who was later to achieve further renown as president of Columbia University, initiated a strong program of scientific instruction and research which was terminated by the coming of the Civil War.
The outbreak of hostilities in 1861 forced the University to suspend classes. The institution fortunately escaped physical damage during the war. Its buildings were used from time to time by both Confederate and Union troops to hospitalize the sick and wounded.
The University was reopened in the fall of 1 865. Meeting resolutely the difficulties of the new era, it provided education for the many Confederate veterans who sought instruction, reestablished itself firmly, and resumed its growth. Co-education came with the admission of women students in 1 882, and the first woman was added to the faculty in 1885. Expansion was particularly notable under Chancellor Robert Burwell Fulton (1892-1906). The first summer session was held in 1893, the School of Engineering was established in 1900, and the Schools of Education and Medicine were opened in 1903. Subsequently, the School of Pharmacy was created in 1908, the School of Commerce and Business Administration in 1917, and the Graduate School in 1927.
The University occupies a position of educational leadership not only in the state, but also in the South and the nation. It pioneered in the accreditation of high schools in Mississippi, was a charter member of what is now the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, a regional accrediting agency, and helped to found the National Association of State Universities.
The University Medical Center, located in Jackson where the second campus of the University was established in 1955, consists of a School of Medicine, a School of Nursing, a Division of Graduate Studies in the Medical Sciences, a Teaching Hospital and a recently created School of Dentistry. Authorized by an act of the State Legislature in 1973, the Dental School admitted its first class in September and has already gained accreditation from the Council on Dental Education.
The original campus at Oxford, which consisted of 640 acres and five buildings, now comprises more than two square miles of rolling land noted for its natural beauty. The Lyceum, the only remaining original building, stands today as the chief symbol of the University.
The campus now includes some 190 buildings and more than 1,800 acres of land, with the University owning an additional 23,000 acres in forest lands in South Mississippi.

PRESIDENT OTIS A. SINGLETARY came to Lexington in August, 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 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.
CLIFFORD O. HAGAN became assistant director of athletics at UK June 1, 1972, and succeeded Harry C. Lancaster as AD July 1, 1975. A two-time consensus All-America, he led the Wildcats to 86 wins in 91 games and the 1951 NCAA championship and was co-captain of the undefeated 1954 team. He scored a then-record 41 points in leading Owensboro over Lafayette in the championship game of the 1949 State Tournament. He was a five-time All-Pro with the St. Louis Hawks.
8 JOE B. HALL Kentucky Head Coach
 Coach of the 1975 national runncr-up Wildcats.
 Coach of the Southeastern Conference co-champions after winning the conference championship two years earlier.
 SEC Coach of the Year for the second time in three years.
 Coach and Athlete Magazine's Southeast Region Coach of the Year for the second time in three years.
 Nominee For Kodak 1975 National Coach of The Year.
 Coach of his third consecutive UKIT championship team.
 Member 1976 Olympic Basketball Committee.
Such personal and team honors in 1975 were gratifying to Joe B. Hall, but the Wildcat coach has his eye on things more current as he enters his fourth year as head of the nationally famous Wildcats.
The challenge facing him now is entirely different from last year, when he blended a crop of big, talented freshmen with six fine seniors, a junior and two sophomores to produce a finely honed, exciting squad that set the nation on its ear and vaulted the Wildcats back into national prominence.
fhe scene has changed dramatically, leaving Hall with one of the most youthful squads in the history of Wildcat basketball. He feels they must overcome that youthfulness with intelligent play, 100 per cent hustle and defensive toughness.
Although he is recognized as one of the nation's finest offensive coaches, it was the defensive play of Hall's 1975 squad that caught the nation's imagination. The Wildcats at times were accused of being excessively rough and of using "karate" defense, but in the long run
they proved that they were merely preparing themselves for the rugged road to the NCAA championship game.
The championship crown eluded Hall and the Wildcats, but they gave such a good account of themselves that Kentucky basketball again was a national byword.
At the end of the season, Hall's three-year record stood at 133-82, excluding a 17-2 record on a 1974 tour of Australia. He had the distinction in 1973 of becoming the first rookie coach in the SEC to be designated Coach of the Year by his fellow coaches and by Coach and Athlete Magazine.
Gathering such honors has been one of Hall's trademarks during a coaching career that began at Shepherdsville (Ky.) High School in 1956 and continued through Regis College and Central Missouri State College before he returned to UK in July 1, 1965, as an assistant to his former coach, Adolph Rupp.
During Hall's two years at Shepherdsville, the Cougars won a Mid-Kentucky Conference title and he was named "Coach of the Year" in 1958. He then served one year as freshman coach and five years as head basketball coach at Regis College in Denver, Colo., where he was also athletic director and earned special recognition as coach of the champion independent team in the area.
While in Denver, he also coached the Capital Federal host team in the 1964 AAU tournament and was selected as head coach of the AAU Stripes in the Olympic trials at Jamaica, N. Y.
His next move was to Central Missouri, where he coached the Mules (19-6) to their first MIAA Conference championship since 1951 and their first Christmas Tournament title in history. He was named MIAA "Coach of the Year" (1964-65).
A three-letter winner and team captain in both sports in high school at Cynthiana, Ky., he played freshman basketball and one year of varsity basketball in the "Fabulous Five" era at the University before transferring to the University of the South at Sewanee, Tenn., where he set a school single game scoring record and was team captain. Coach Lon Varnell, upon retirement, rated Hall as No. 1 of the three best players he ever coached.
After touring Europe with the Globetrotters in 1951, Hall returned to U.K. in 1955 to complete requirements for his B.A. and later (1964) received his M.A. at Colorado State University.
Returning to U.K. again in 1965 as assistant coach and head recruiter, he was instrumental in adopting a running-conditioning program which obviously paid huge dividends as the Wildcats capitalized on speed and endurance to offset a lack of size and advance to the championship game of the NCAA Finals. Hall then successfully recruited six prep All-Americans, including all-time U.K. scoring leader Dan Issel, to form the nucleus of a varsity team that won three straight conference championships and was followed by a team that won three more consecutive SEC titles.
Hall became No. 1 varsity assistant and head freshman Coach to Rupp after Harry C. Lancaster was named permanent athletic director Feb. 1, 1969. His record with the .freshmen was 60-15, including an undefeated (22-0) season (1971-72) which resulted in the Kittens being crowned National Freshman Champions by the Basketball News.
During his first season as head coach, the Wildcats won their last nine conference games to sew up the SEC title.
His nine-year coaching record is 135-82. Broken down, it shows a 57-50 five-year mark at Regis, a 19-6 record at Central Missouri, and a 59-26 three-year record at Kentucky.
A popular personality on the clinic and convention circuits, Hall also has had much international exposure. In addition to the Globetrotters tour in 1951, and the "Down Under" tour in 1974, he has helped conduct basketball clinics for the U.S. Army in Anchorage and Fairbanks, Alaska (1968) and at Ramstein Air Base in Frankfurt, Germany and the RAF Base at Mildcnhall, England, last Sept. He also was Olympic Trials coach under Hank Iba at the Air Force Academy in July 1972 and is a member of the 1976 Olympic Basketball Committee.
He is married to the former Katharine Dennis of Harrison County, Ky. They have three children-Judy, 20; Kathy, 19, and Steve, 15.

WHO WERE THE 'FABULOUS FIVE?
The most frequently asked question tossed at basketball historians and sports authorities is "Who were the 'Fabulous Five' of Kentucky?" The answer is Alex Groza (center), Rajph Beard and Kenny Rollins (guards), Wah Wah Jones and Cliff Barker (forwards). This famous 1948 team, captained by Rollins, won 36 and lost 3 while sweeping to Kentucky's first NCAA title and went on to participate as a unit in the Olympic Gameshelping the USA team capture the world championship. Rollins graduated after the '48 season, but the remaining foursome continued to play havoc with collegiate basketball and copped another NCAA title for Kentucky in 1949 on a record of 36-2.

"The best college basketball announcer in the country." That's what one publication calls Cawood Ledford. It's a deserved compliment for "Mr. Kentucky," as Curt Gowdy calls the "voice" of the Kentucky Wildcats.
Cawood Ledford is as much a part of Kentucky basketball as the fast break. Ledford is nearing a quarter of a century behind the microphone calling the Wildcats' play-by-play. The Sports Director for WHAS, Louisville, has been selected "Kentucky Sportscaster of the Year" seven times.
Supplying the color commentary is Ralph Hacker, vice-president and general manager of WVLK, Lexington.
This popular team brings the exciting action of Wildcat basketball to fans throughout the state.
