  • 1902: The faculty senate meets to adjudicate several disciplinary cases. A cadet who was absent without leave is given extra guard duty as a punishment, and the senate similarly reprimands a cadet who disobeyed an order that could have destroyed an expensive motor. R.N. Brackett had reported cadet E. Allison Thornwell to the faculty senate for taking test tubes in a chemistry lab from a storecase without permission. The student maintains that he has done nothing wrong as he was not attempting to remove the glassware from the lab but merely using it for an experiment. The faculty votes, 15-13, to suspend Cadet Thornwell for the rest of the semester. Interestingly, Brackett, and fellow chemistry professor Mark Bernard Hardin vote against the motion.
