You Live Where? The Faces Behind the Places

1 You Live Where? The Faces Behind the Places Biblical Heritage Gallery Virtual Exhibit Guide Many faculty, staff, administrators, trustees, and donors have contributed to the success of Cedarville University over its 137 years of operation. Portions of this rich heritage have been celebrated in the names given to buildings and campus facilities. Many in the campus family may be unfamiliar with the stories of those names that have become synonymous with these buildings. This exhibit features the heroes behind the residence halls. Displayed in two parts, it presents altogether 22 honorees for whom Cedarville residence halls are named.

3 Part 1 Maddox and Marshall – Case 1 Maddox Hall – 1967, named in memory of Clifford and Miriam Maddox Clifford Maddox [1894-1965] Academic Dean 1956-1965 Dr. Clifford Maddox came to Cedarville in 1956 to serve as the academic dean after retiring from his teaching career in Harvey, Illinois. He brought the credibility of years of public education experience and an earned doctorate in education from the University of Chicago to the administrative team. In the eight years he worked at Cedarville, he took the early steps to build academic credibility and pursue accreditation for the college, laying the foundation for others who completed that task in 1975. Dr. Maddox died unexpectedly in 1965 while attending a conference in New Jersey.

She was appointed to teach speech at Cedarville in 1959. In addition, she eventually taught interpretive reading, acting, voice and diction, and play production. For 14 years, she directed most of the campus plays, and for 17 years, she planned Cedarville’s commencement ceremonies.

The college even had a cement block making machine, which Pop supervised. He directed the moving of the army barracks from WrightPatterson Air Force base to the campus in 1957 where they became Faith residence hall (Old Faith which has now been demolished), and he helped bring the first observatory to campus from New York. The 1967 Miracle yearbook was dedicated to Pop Marshall in gratitude for his humble and willing service, especially for being the bus driver for choir tours and athletic teams. He was honored posthumously with the “Staff Member of the Year” award after his death in 1972. Marshall Hall, now part of the “The Hill” dormitory complex, was named for Pop in 1974.

He then went on to serve in a Dayton, Ohio, church until 1937. During this time, Cedarville College was looking to purchase a home to become its first women’s dormitory. In 1940, the Board of Trustees authorized the executive committee to purchase the “Pollock house” at the corner of Main and Chillicothe streets to serve as a dormitory. That first dormitory was opened in September 1940, and was named Harriman Hall in honor of Dr. Walter Harriman, an alumnus of Cedarville College and a former pastor of the Presbyterian Church in Cedarville; he was also serving on the Board of Trustees at the time of his death. During its first use as a dormitory, Mrs. Harriman herself was the housemother, her husband Dr. Harriman having died in 1939. Because of ill health, she served in that capacity for only one year.

23 Case 4 Morton Hall – 2023 James F. Morton [1828-1903] Founder and Board of Trustees 1887-1903 Rev. James F. Morton played a key role in the early years of Cedarville College. Born in Tennessee in 1828, Morton spent several years teaching before he entered Monmouth College in 1859, graduated in 1861, and then graduated from the Seminary in 1862. He then moved to Cedarville in 1863 to become the pastor of the Reformed Presbyterian Church, a position he would hold for forty years. In 1879, Rev. Morton introduced a resolution to the Reformed Presbyterian Synod to form a committee to select a site for an academic institution and “to do all that is possible to secure the establishment of such an institution at an early day.” Because of a nation-wide economic recession in the last decades of the 1800’s, funding for the college was very difficult to secure, but Morton and others persisted. He thus became one of the five founders of Cedarville College who finally secured the charter for the college in 1887; Morton then served as the first secretary of the inaugural Board of Trustees when the college finally admitted students for the first time in 1894. Rev. Morton became one of the college’s first faculty members while also serving as vicepresident from 1894 until his death in 1903. In 1895 his daughter, Lulu Morton, married Dr. W. Renwick McChesney, the second president of Cedarville. Morton Hall was named for Rev. Morton in 2023. Source: Barbara Loach, Cedarville University: Defining Legacies
