So as it happens, after my father passed away, my mother and I moved to Eldon. I began the third grade in Eldon in toward the end of the school year after we arrived.
For some reason the regular teacher for the third grade was absent and Professor Vaughan was substituting. He was a very stern man and demanded perfect discipline in his class.
In addition, he had a bad eye which was turned out so that when he looked at you his face was turned a funny way; I suppose this helped him focus better. At any rate, maybe because he knew me and my father, he wanted to give me attention.
I don't know for sure. But anyway, he looked at me and asked me first before any other student every question for the entire day.
I was frightened by his general demeanor and countenance to begin with, but when he directed his questioning to me I became a complete mute! It was absolutely awful! And, of course, being a new student at the school I knew absolutely no one in a school that was much larger than the one we had at Tuscumbia.
But no doubt exists that he was a very competent teacher and administrator and I believe he was instrumental in the success of the Eldon School system in its earliest years. While I was visiting Helen she gave me the opportunity to look at a couple of Eldon High School albums, and These albums are so old that I doubt many people living today have seen an edition of one of them.
So I thought I would copy the photographs of the students attending then for the interest of any of their descendents who may be interested. Vaughan was the superintendent during these years.Home» University Archives» Masters Theses, Masters Theses, A Study of Character and Early Criticism in Kate Chopin's The Awakening and Edith Wharton's The House of Mirth: Expressive Language Gains Exhibited by a Three-Year-Old Child with Down Syndrome Upon Introduction of Augmentative Communication: A.
