April 15, 1393. He died on the afternoon of Torch 15, 1956, having been
stricken with a heart attack a few hours earlier.

His teaching career at the University of Kentucky began almost thirty~five
years ago, During these years he rose in rank frOm instructor to professor,
and in 1945 became the first college of Arts and Sciences "Distinguished

Sealed Well, a book of verse (1943), The Critical Period ig-Americen
Literature (1951), end The Strenugu§.£gg_ig American Literature (1945).
The last two volumes were critical studies of the years l89fln1900 and
1900s1910 respectively, and were the first volumes of a trilogy to cover
the years 189091920. The last volume of the three was about two—thirds
finished at the time of Profesvor Knight's death. I

was appointed to the headship and became the Founder of the Department
of Anatomy and Physiology. In 1894 Dr. Pryor organized in the College
of Arts and Sciences one of the first premedical curricula in the

Dro Pryor's interest in Dremedical work and his scholarly example
from the earliest of his years at the UniVersity were a source of
inepiration to hundreds of students who in later years occupied promhmnt
positions in the medical fieldo The present Pryor Premedical Society
of our College and UniVersity was organiZed by him in 1915 and was known
then as The Premedical Society. This Society was named in his honor
after Pr. Pryor was placed on Special Assignment by the University.

Dr. Pryor was essentially an investigator. His early classical
work with the xnray in connection with the ossification of the carpal
bones gained him national and international recognition” In 1927
Dr. Pryor gaVe a talk in London, England, before the Anatomical Society
of Great Britain and Ireland. Also, in the same year he read a PaPer

hd'* more time to community work than my rigid routine has permitted me to do in
whh' 3“ the past. These matters no good citiZen can afford to ne:?eot.

There are two reasons why I am requesting the Board of Tins stees
to give me a year earlier a changeaofmwork sta tus under the noli icy adovted
by the Board in 1928. A committee of the T41eculty some yeers ago requested
that when I planned to relincuish my duties as president of the University,
I would giVe thr Board and the Jaculty notice of my retirement from the
presidency some months in advance. At that time I informed them I would
honor their request which I am now doing. The other reason is quite as valid. (
Time is required to make a careful and diligent search for a new president.
A b06rd should have sufficient time fo select a new president and thereby {
avoid the necessity of sales cting on Acting President. If r long interval ,

I have giVen so much of my lifes I am justified in saying something about Hm
procedure a board should follow in selecting a new president.

First, the best authorities on higher education regard the s lection I
E of a new executiVe officer of a university as the most important an for

‘ the morale of the faculty is maintained at a high level and the new president
