INSTITUTE INSTRUCTOR AND LECTURER Figure J. T. C. NOE, A. M. Associate Professor of Psychology and Education STATE UNIVERSITY, LEXINGTON, KY. Scholarship and Preparation I have known Prof. J. T. C. Noe, of State University, Lexington, Ky., since his school days in Covington Institute, Springfield, Ky. He was a careful, painstaking and able student throughout his preparatory course, and later in college he won honorable mention for his superior scholarship. In addition to securing the prize offered for the best final examination in Latin and Greek during his Junior year, he won two oratorical medals and represented his college in the State Oratorical Contest in his Senior year. After taking his A. B. degree from Franklin College, he did graduate work at Cornell University and at the University of Chicago. Prof. Noe has had a successful experience of eighteen years in teaching in the schools of Kentucky, Indiana, and Tennessee. He knows the needs of the teacher from the district school to the university from actual experience as common school teacher, high school principal, city superintendent, and college professor. He is a vigorous speaker and a sympathetic friend of the teacher. —F. W. BROWN , Ph. D., Professor of Latin, Franklin College. Mr. Noe maintained a high rank throughout his work in the Department of English Literature in Cornell University. — HIRAM CORSON , LL. D., Professor of English Literature, Cornell University. Mr. Noe has a good scientific knowledge of the English language in its origin and relations to kindred languages. — JAMES MORGAN HART , J. U. D., Professor of Rhetoric and English Philology, Cornell University. I found Mr. Noe a most earnest and faithful student, doing work of a high order of excellence in the formative period of Shakespeare's work. — JOHN BELL HENNEMAN , Ph. D., Professor of English, University of the South. He is a successful and inspiring teacher, a promising writer, and an able speaker. —E. E. WOOD , President Williamsburg Institute. Prof. Noe is one of the best teachers of English we have ever had in Indiana. —H. D. VORIES , Ex-State Supt. Public Instruction, Indiana. Prof. Noe is a strong and enthusiastic teacher of literature. — CHAS. M. CURRY , Prof. Literature, Indiana State Normal. As a teacher, Prof. Noe is as fine as I have ever seen. With a thorough knowledge of the subject, he combines a fine power of expression and that rare gift by which a few people—a very few—are able to throw the force of their own souls into those before them and to awaken a never-dying love for the subject taught. — CHAS. D. LEWIS , Professor Biology, Berea College. As Institute Instructor Our teachers have just said by resolution and individually that Prof. Noe, of State University, gave us the best institute ever held in Magoffin County. He is an inspiring and practical institute instructor, and we recommend him to county superintendents. —K. S. HOSKINS , Superintendent, Magoffin County. September, 1909. Prof. J. T. C. Noe instructed my institute for the year 1909. He is an able and earnest worker, eminently practical and does not pitch his work so high the average teacher cannot reach him. The teachers and citizens are anxious for him to return to Oldham County to instruct the institute in 1910. —J. L. REEVES , County Superintendent. Aside from being one of the best all-round instructors we have ever had in a Marion County Institute, Mr. J. T. C. Noe is an accomplished speaker and lecturer. — JNO. W. CLARKSON , Supt. of Schools. Lebanon, Oct. 11, 1909. The work done in our county teachers' institute this year by Prof. J. T. C. Noe was very commendable. His methods were up-to-date, and his manner of presenting them was pleasing to all. As a lecturer, he holds the attention of his hearers from start to finish. In my judgment an institute in his charge could know no such thing as failure. — JAMES S. PENDLETON , Supt. of Schools, Whitesburg, Ky., Oct. 16, 1909. Prof. J. T. C. Noe taught my teachers' institute last summer, and I unhesitatingly pronounce him one of the greatest institute men I have ever known. I praise him because his work is thoroughly practical. — ELIZA BOWE-CURTSINGER , Ex-Supt. Carlisle County Schools. Arlington, Nov. 2, 1909. No institute was ever held before in Knott County that was so profitable and at the same time so pleasant. No institute instructor ever so emphasized the moral side of education as did Prof. Noe, and we felt that this was the one thing more than anything else that needed emphasis. He is inspiring, elevating and educationally, as well as morally, helpful. We all look forward with pleasure to his return next year. —L. E. SMITH , Pres. W. C. T. U. School. Hindman, Oct. 18, 1909. With all due respect to the many able instructors who have taught the Letcher County institutes, we believe we can truthfully say that Prof. Noe is the ablest of them all.— Mountain Eagle, Aug. 2, 1909. Prof. J. T. C. Noe has for the third year taught my teachers' institute, and we feel that he has grown stronger with each institute. He is an educator of ability, possessing much tact and versatility. Each year he has given evening popular lectures that were greatly enjoyed by the citizens of Bedford and Trimble County. —I. D. MITCHELL , County Supt. Trimble Co. September 4, 1909. We desire to register our very great appreciation of Prof. Noe, who came to us with that, not from stagnant pools, but from running water, and we certainly commend Prof. Noe to any and all counties desiring a wide-awake, up-to-date instructor. —Resolutions Trimble County Institute. It gives me pleasure to testify to Prof. J. T. C. Noe's ability as a teacher and institute instructor. As a student of his at the State University, I had the best opportunity to judge of his ability as a scholar and because of his addresses before my teachers in 1908 institute, I also had an opportunity to judge of his institute work, and as a result of these observations I cheerfully commend him to county superintendents as a scholarly gentleman and as an earnest and well-equipped institute instructor. —C. A. TANNER , Ex-County Superintendent Clark County. It gives me pleasure to recommend Prof. J. T. C. Noe as a high-class institute instructor. He is not given to fads, but deals in broad fundamental principles which are sound and which he elucidates to the extent of making them very plain and practical. In addition to being an excellent instructor, he is a charming lecturer, having talent of a high order for entertaining as well as instructing. He will meet every requirement of an institute with credit to himself as well as to his employer. —J. W. BUSH , Superintendent Schools Washington County. After hearing Prof. J. T. C. Noe in an institute but one opinion is possible. Our teachers were of one voice in praising him. He has the happy faculty of imparting his own enthusiasm to those who hear him. He never becomes tediously technical, nor does he waste the week in impractical theories. He makes the institute what it should be—a sort of educational revival, and every teacher becomes prouder of the profession and fully awake to its responsibilities. His experience in schools of different grades from the rural schools to the State University gives him a sympathetic knowledge of the teachers' needs. He is a man of extensive and varied learning, a writer of no mean ability, and an eloquent speaker. You will always want him for a return engagement. — GEO. COLVIN , Superintendent Schools, Springfield, Ky. As Lecturer and Entertainer Prof. J. T. C. Noe, of State University, delivered the graduating address to the class of 1909 of Kavanaugh Academy to a large and select audience. The address was pronounced by all to have been one of the best lectures ever heard here. It was original in every respect. — MRS. C. W. KAVANAUGH , Principal Kavanaugh Academy. In his address before the graduating class of the Straight Creek High School, June 3 (1909), Prof. J. T. C. Noe, of State University, held his audience spell-bound for an hour. He knows how to address both the educated and the uneducated as well.— Pineville Sun, June 11, 1909. As a lecturer we have never had Prof. Noe's equal. He held the attention of his hearers from the beginning to the end. His ability to please a popular audience cannot be surpassed. — MARTHA B. ARNETT , Ex-County Superintendent Magoffin County. Never was an audience better entertained than by Prof. Noe's address on last Friday night. He was thoroughly alive to his theme and fired shot after shot into humanity's deadliest foe, ignorance, in words too eloquent to be misunderstood by the most thoughtless. The entire audience was thrilled as no audience in Letcher County was ever thrilled before.— Mountain Eagle, December 10, 1908. A feature of the institute was the lecture of Prof. J. T. C. Noe, the instructor, on the subject 'Yankee Doodle vs. Dixie.' He has a poetical turn of mind and it may well be known that his lecture was a poetic composition of the highest merit. On Wednesday night Prof. Noe gave a reading from his own poetry. The poems were full of thought and ringing with beauty and rhythm from beginning to end. All enjoyed Prof. Noe.— Trimble Democrat. Prof. Noe's lecture before the county graduates was the best class address ever delivered here.— Anderson County News. On Thursday Prof. Noe, of State University, put forth his whole energy in instructing the teachers, and Thursday evening he delivered one of the best lectures on literature that has ever been delivered in the city of Winchester. Kentucky should pride herself in having such men as J. T. C. Noe in her state university.— Sun-Sentinel. Mr. Noe's reading from his own poetry was highly enjoyed and warmly applauded by the audience.— News-Leader, Springfield, Ky. We wish most emphatically to endorse Prof. Noe's lecture on 'Hamlet with the Prince Left Out,' and recommend that he publish it that we may continue to study same and he benefited by it. The thanks of the Bell County teachers are due Prof. Noe for the manner in which he conducted our institute. He has a happy faculty for this kind of work, and we feel that we have both individually and collectively derived great benefit from his efforts in our behalf.— Resolution Bell County Institute. Prof. Noe's lecture on 'Pearls, Rubies, and Diamonds' at the University last Saturday night was a gem of purest ray serene.— Cumberland Gap News. Those who heard Prof. Noe's lecture on 'Yankee Doodle vs. Dixie' were surprised at his power in handling the two dominant elements in our civilization and the application of these two elements to teaching.— Springfield Sun. The class in English Poetry of the Woman's Club wants to thank you very sincerely for the extremely interesting and instructive study you gave us of 'In Memoriam.' It was a splendid interpretative lecture, and every one present was sorry that she could not listen to you for a much longer period. — MAMYE S. GEARY , Leader (in a note to Mr. Noe). Prof. Noe, of the State College, gave a delightful lecture yesterday afternoon before the class of English poetry of the Woman's Club. The hall was well filled and the lecture was most intellectual and highly enjoyed. Prof. Noe is a delightful speaker and has the faculty of holding his audience spell-bound to the end.— Lexington Herald. The class of English poetry held a particularly interesting meeting Saturday afternoon at the Woman's Club. Mrs. William Irving presiding introduced Prof. J. T. C. Noe, who gave a very intellectual interpretation of Tennyson's In Memoriam.— Lexington Leader. Prof. Noe's lecture before the Chautauue Assembqly last night on Shakespeare's Macbeth as a Tragedy of Ambition was a brilliant and dramatic effort.— Pineville Messenger. Prof. Noe instructed the Bell County Institute in 1905, and his work was of the highest order, being heartily approved by all the teachers. He is a lecturer of rare ability, his lectures always sparkling with wit and humor. — SUPT. H. H. FUSON . Prof. J. T. C. Noe, of State University, was with the Elkhorn Teachers' Institute (Franklin, Scott, Woodford, and Jessamine Counties) in Versailles, Ky., Aug 19, 1909, and delivered his lecture 'Yankee Doodle vs. Dixie.' His large audience was delighted with the lecture. Prof. Noe is a pleasant speaker and his lecture is rich in wholesome food, garnished with the most beautiful metaphors and other figures of speech, and served in the most delightful manner by the speaker. You will make no mistake in employing Prof. Noe in institute work. —M. B. HIFNER , Supt. Woodford Co. Versailles, Ky., Nov 14. 1909.
