Research Post #4

There were several familiar names listed in the faculty section of the MWC catalogs.  The President was Morgan Lafayette Combs, the Dean of College was Edward Alvey, Jr., and the Dean of Women was Mrs. Charles Lake Bushnell.  Today, all three of these people have halls named after them.

On a different note, there was a significant difference in MWC after the US entered WWII.  Because of the recovery of the economy, MWC was now able to expand its academic fields.  For example, instead of just French, Spanish, and the classical languages, now German, Portuguese, Italian, and Russian were added to the curriculum.
