Dr. Thomas D. Clark read the following Resolution on the death of President
Emeritus Frank L. McVey.

Whereas, the death of Frank LeRond McVey on January 4. 1993. has
removed from the staff of the University of Kentucky one of its most
vital personal influences. it is fitting that his services to this
University be reviewed.

Frank LeRond McVey was a man of major educational leadership
capacity. and his accomplishments in this field were of immeasurable

importance to the world of scholars. With quiet dignity, vision,

constructive curiosity and the power of decision he ever promoted
the cause of learning.

Dr. Frank LeRond McVey become President of the University of
Kentucky at a historical moment in both national and world history.
World War I was drawing to a close and already the United States
and Europe were beginning a program of reconstruction. The Univer-
sity itself had suffered the ravages of war, and at the same time
it was undergoing a transition from a state college to an institu-
tion of university status. Dr. McVey brough to Kentucky that
vision so necessary to the establishment and direction of the
University’s progress in the disturbed post-war world.

President McVey‘s personal contributions to the University
are represented in the orderly organization of the various colleges.
the creation of the University Senate, the tenure of staff members.
the drafting of the Governing Regulationsof‘the University. the
change—of-work plan for University staff members over seventy years
of age, the formulationof the group insurance plan, and the prom
vision for the sabbatical leave of absence to encourage faculty
members to do research. He brought to this campus many outside
influences in the form of lectures, dramatic events, musical
programs and art exhibits.

Intellectually and culturally Frank LeRond McVey gave great
personal stimulus to university life. He encouraged the organizes
tion of the Research Club: in 1926 the Alpha Chapter of Kentucky
of Phi Beta Kappa was organized in his home, and in the early
1930's he explored the.possibilities of establishing a university
press. As a result of this latter interest a special committee
was entrusted with the responsibility of publishing scholarly works
by a grant given it from the Haggin Fund. Later this committee
under his chairmanship developed the plan for creating the Univera
sity of Kentucky Press. The enlarged University Library is the
result of his work and encouragement. In 1931 it was moved from
cramped quarters to its new home and the collection was greatly
expanded before he retired. He took genuine pride in having
been one of the pioneers among southern college presidents to
promote art and music education, and to stimulate public interest
in these cultural arts by public exhibits and recitals.

President McVey developed three colleges and one division
of the University during his administration. These were the Colleges
of Education, Commerce, the Graduate School and the division of
University Extension. The older colleges felt his influence in

the process of their growth and the expansion of their staffs and

In the cause of freedom of learning, Frank LeRond McVey
publicly exhibited great courage and intelligence in opposing the
anti—evolution bill proposed to the Kentucky General Assembly in
1925. While the University and the freedom of its classrooms
were under bitter attack from an unreasoning and unrelenting band
of fundamentalists, Dr. McVey showed himself willing doggedly to
defend the right of investigation. By his courageous action on
this occasion he saved Kentucky from enormous future embarrassment.
and helped to teach his people the sanctity of freedom of thought
and speech.

American Economic Association and president of the Association of
Land Grant Colleges and Universities. the National Association of
State Universities. the Southern Associativn of Colleges and Secon-
dary Schools. and the Kentucky Educational Association. He was
