Hutchings College drawings preserved at TTU library

Patricia Hutchings Broyles and Angela Rector, second and third from left respectively, donate line drawings of White County’s former Hutchings College and house of its founder, Ransom I. Hutchings, to Tennessee Tech University’s Angelo and Jeanette Volpe Library. TTU library representatives accepting the gift are, from left, Mancil Johnson, Winston Walden and Christine Jones. The drawings, made by Betsy Fox, will be preserved in the TTU library’s archives. The college, which opened in the early 20th century in the western White County community of Cassville, closed in 1923 but boarded between 75 and 125 students a year during its existence. At least two former TTU faculty members were graduates of the college.
