A Glimpse into Southern's Past

John H. Talge, president of Talge Mahogany Co. toured the campus and pledged to provide furniture for the girls. Not only did he send beds, dressers, tables, chairs, and bathroom fixtures, he also provided oak flooring for the halls. When the boys’ dorm was built, he furnished it as well, in addition to providing laundry and kitchen equipment.

In 1919 he donated $3,000 toward a new barn, along with the financing for several school industries. He also gave money for the purchase of additional land, and helped some of the students with their expenses.

In 1927 the students dedicated their yearbook to him, with the words: “The future success of the college must always be due in no small measure to his generous gifts.”
