IT IS STATED THAT THE DI
COME TO ANDER
ONE OF THE BIG Ml
rlis Accession to the College Wou
to the Institutio
Columbia, Jan. .".th. It is learned
here that Mr. W. H. Hand, Stute su
prrvieor of rural schools hps heen
offered the presidency <>f indcrsbn
College und has taken the natter
dor favorable consideration. it is
known that Mr. Hand waa approached
on this subject last year and that he
declined at*that time as he could not
very gracefully drop the great work
in which he was engaged, it Is un
derstood that Dr. 3. F. Vines wan call
ed to the presidency against Or.
Vine's wish and request, merely to
hold tho place for a few months until
Mr. Hand could be approached again,
and the friends of Mr. Hand in Co
lumbia believe that he will accept
and that he will make Anderson Col
lege the great piedmont institution
for the ?ducation of young .women.
Mr. Hand is n man of unusual exe
cutive ability, of high standards of
education, and of a One sense of pat
riotic responsibility. He lias few
equals as an organizer, not except
ing Dr. D. B. Johnson of Winthrop
College and If he does go to Anderson
the people of that city may congratu
late themselves upon the accession.

The following sketch of Mr. W. H.
Hand is an editorial from The south
ern Sichool News of Columbia, W. H.
W. H. Hand. State inspector of
high schools, misiit now te a railroad
man- Instead of one of our best known
teachers had not the merest chance
directe* him to a teachers' institute
being held In the school building at
Flol'enc?. nnr> day in the ?>Jtrim<?r'r?f
1891. A young man. 1n the employ
of tbe Coast Line, preparing himself
for tho larger services ana activities
of a great trunk line with headquar
ters in Chicago, he was lb Florence
and happened to pass where the in
stitute was being held. He took a
back seat In the assemblage of teach
ers. The Instructors, tbe late G.
Edwin Stokes, and Miss Helen Mc
Master, observing f*?? young and In
terested visitor asked him to Join in
ti.o discussions. With modesty, he
accepted their Invitation, and so able
were his arguments and so logical
his conclusions that he made a most
favorable impression on all present.
It happened that he was not the only
visitor that day. Among others were
two members of tho Florence
school board. A few davg later Mr.
Hand was offered the ?s)por!ntendaney
Of the Florence city schools. This
Was the turning point in his life.
We are creature:; of fate and cir
cumstances. Had Mr. Hand never
left North Carolina for South Cftrc
Una. if he had not chanced to be In
Florence that summer day, it be had
not gone for u stroll and passed the
place where the teachers' Institute
waa%-b?lng held, if he had not pre
viously taught la his native state for
five years, thereby acquiring an in
terest in things pedagogical, if tho
instructors had not asked htm to
talk, if the trustees had remained at
kAHM?wait if nnn? or these thlnas
had happened, we would not now
h?ve b*?f so ^ood a svsiem of'
schools in South Carolina, and the
subject or this xketch would be a
railroad magnate. ;

; tor of high schools is known to all.
i It is altio a familiar faut that he ?as
\ superiut?indent of the ehester ?-ity
, schools for a number of years, going
there, after two years of service in I
' Florence, in ix:t:;, remaining until
: 100?. Through the broad-minded and
i intelligent policy of the school board,
1 Mr. Hand was. during this period, af
forded an opportunity to visit schools
throughout the country. He became
familiar with the leading school sys
tems and being of acquisitive mind
and disposition, he really absorbed
and retained what was best of all that
he sa v.* and observed. Mr. Hand's
reputation was made soon after tak
ing charge of the Chester schools.
Here, in a small city, ho built r.p one
of the best systems of schools of the
Stato. While in Chester he spent
three summers studying at Cornell
At the Centennial celebration of
the UniveVsity of South Carolina,
Fror. Hand was one of tbe speakers.
It waB here that he first attracted
State-wide attention as an cducation
j nl speaker, although his ability in
I this direction was then well known
to the teachers of the Sttate. His
Vas one of the best addresses deliv
ered on that great occasion, and it
made a most profound impression.
His services as speaker, as lecturer
and as instructor in summer schools
and institutes have been in demand.
He 1ms taught in all the State sum
mer schools held iu South Carolina
except two, and has twice taught in
the summer school at the University
of Virginia, and will return there in
.Tnn* inr the third time.
He has won many educational hon
ors. Ho has been president of the
j Association oi City auporinienucnia.
president of the IVate Teachers' As
sociation, * member of the. County
Board of Education of Chester coun
ty, and for four years member of the
executive committee of the Confer
ence for Education in tbe South.
In 1909, Mr. Hand was made pro
fessor of secondary Education in the
University of South Carolina, and one
year later, was .made inspector of
high schools by the Stato Board or
Education. In this latter' position he.
has made his most marked impress
on tho schools and the people of the
State and has rendered a most distinct
service to South Carolina. Thorough
ness, painstaking care and methodi
cal planning have characterised all of
his work in - this important office.
Without arousing antagonism, he has
successfully welded the complex and
disorganised aggregatton of graded
schools into a system with a fixed and
definite- plan for future growth. Ills
full and comprehensive high school
reports have' attracted attention
throughout the nation. The growth
of the high schools in numbers and
efficiency epoak eloquently In praise
of his good. work. Since 1906 the
number of high schools has increas
ed from 9& to 16R; high school teach
ers from 336 to 4?,9; high school en
rollment from 4.812 to 8,030.
Personally. Mr. Hand la very popu
lar. Possessing an inexhaustible
fund or anscdote* sad stories and
being ?. rare conversationalist, he en
tertains and delights any company of
which be may be a member. Withal
