Date: 1979 Size: 470x334 pixels
The Reverend George "Jed" Smock, an itinerant member of Campus Ministry USA, preached on the lawn by Haley Center during this visit to Auburn in 1979.  The minister and his wife, Sister Cindy, preached outdoors on dozens of campuses yearly and frequently engaged in heated arguments with dissenters in the audience.  Students at Auburn looked forward to their appearances for nearly a decade.  The Plainsman reported in 1986 that Brother Jed "attracted hundreds during two days of preaching near the Eagle's Cage" behind Haley Center.  The couple was featured in an issue of Rolling Stone magazine that year.
