Attended Univeralfy of Kentucky Three Years Before
Going East to Study
Prof! Herbert R. Grossman,
Washington, D. C, noted eastern
educator and attorney, is paying a
visit to the University to renew old
acquaintances and memories of the
days when he attended this institution.
Mr. Grossman first came to the
University after having won a scholarship
while attending Louisville
Male High school. He studied engineering under Dean Anderson in
1914, '15 and '16, living in the old dormitory which Is now known as the
White hall building. After the 1910
term, he went to Youngstown, Ohio,
to take up work with .the Iruscon
Steel company. Later In the year he
went to Washington, where he was
connected with the office of Chief of
Ordinance, U. S. Army. During tho
war he worked as a designer of heavy
artillery and translator of enemy mav
terial into English,
Since he has been in Washington,
Professor Grossman has worked his
way through both George Washington and Georgetown, universities by
holding a position with the Interstate
Commerce Commission. At the former institution he received the degree
of A. B. (with distinction), M. A.,
and LL. B., in the years of 1921, '22
and '24, respectively.
In the law
work he was associated with Dean
Albert Evans, who now heads the
University College of Law. In the
latter school he received, in 1925, a
Ph. D., in International Law and Diplomacy. In 192G the degree of LL.
M. was added to his scholastic ach
ievements. He was admitted to the

U. K. Scientists Unearth Strange

Evidence of Prehistoric Men
Who Once Peopled Kentucky
Evidence of man who roamed Ken-- ,
tucky COO years ago, whose religion
is u matter of confusion, who built
large structures in which to worship,
only to later see them destroyed by
fire cither intentionally or accidentally, has been discovered by Dr. W. D.
Funkhauser and Prof. W. S. Webb,
of the University, who went on a
month's exploration trip in Christian
county this summer.
The prehistoric evidence discovered is not the oldest of its nature in
Kentucky, but is among the most ancient and presents many problems to
authropoligists and archoeologists.
Men with horses and scrapers were
required to dig into the base of the
mound discovered, which was of great
size. Upon completion of the excavation the structure was found to be
a ceremonial mound and gave insight
into tho religious characteristics of
the ancient tribe.
Tho information
gained will permit scientists to make
deductions as to the mode of living
und other matters of interest. It will
be come time before the investigation
is complete, but the remainder is composed mostly of laboratory und office
Ancient Altars Found
Upon rcuching tho base of the
mound, tho explorers found evidences
of old structures, posts which hud
been set in tho ground for building
purposes, ancient altars and other
specimens of an interesting nature.
Many artifacts, including skeletons,
pottery and parts of the religious
shrines were returned to the Univer
sity by Dr, Funkhouser and Professor

Webb, together


with pictures

of the"

"Our first conclusion was that the
tribe were worshippers of idols," Professor Webb said. "Later discoveries
caused us to doubt this. Pictures
painted on some of the pottery led us
to believe that some other type Qf
worship might have been the vogue."
The tribe was apparently
according to Professor Webb.
These races are known as mound
builders and stone grave men.
A very interesting part of the find
was tho structures which the prehistoric men built in which to worship. These houses were built by
driving rows of posts for the four
walls, putting posts in tho center
with which to hold up the roof and
then interweaving
the posts with
brush and twigs. Three such structures were found iu the one mound.
One would be built, burned to the
ground and eventually covered with
sod, then another structure would be
Whether tho burning was intentional or accidental could not be ascertained, Professor Webb said. Fires
wero built inside the houses for worship and the buildings might have
been destroyed in this manner.
Tho structures contained inside the
mound were about twenty by forty
feet. "The height cannot be ascertained until much figuring has been
done," Professor Webb said. "This and
the other features of tho discovery
will be investigated this year."
