Description

WILLIAM ANTHONY WALTON
APPOMATTOX, VIRGINIA
"As welcomed as sunshine in every place
So the beaming approach of a good-natured face."
Philologian Literary Society; Secretary Philologian Literary Society '13-'14;
Treasurer Philologian Literary Society, '14-'15 ; Y. M. C. A. Delegates to Black
Mountain Convention, '14; Piedmont Club; Anti-Coed Club; SPIDER Staff, '15.

"DOC" or "Willie," just as you prefer, hails from the historic city of Appomattox.
He has had the reputation for living rather quietly among us,
except for two instances, when he deviated from the straight and narrow,
and as a consequence had to travel the transgressor's path to Boaty's sanctum.
That was in his early days, however. Last year he entered politics, via the Philologian
Literary Society, and with his "ole lady" managed to bring home the bacon,
and the steam roller has worked without a hitch this year. His association with
a "certain party" has given him many "little matters of business" to attend to this
year, such as instructing the Bishop of Section D in the mysteries of college life.
In this he has proved a very efficient assistant of Dr. Nicodemus Thomas, alias
Brown. Seriously he is a good student, a man of possibilities. Possibilities, because
he has been so quiet and unobtrusive that all his abilities have not been
recognized. He is the type of man who will reflect credit on his Alma Mater by
steady, persistent work.
