Pres. Philpott with students
Date: ca. 1980 Size: 470x306 pixels
President Harry M. Philpott probably enjoyed Auburn students more than any other of Auburn’s first fifteen presidents--at least it seemed that way.  He was involved, as were other presidents, with scores of structured functions each year during which he met with student leaders and student groups, but Philpott also found time for countless informal rap sessions, many outdoors under the trees as was this one, with any who wished to show up.  He appeared throughout his fifteen years of leadership to be genuinely interested in what the students had to say, and in providing answers to their questions.
