Noah C. Hirschy (1867-1925) was asked to join the faculty of Berea College as Associate Professor of Modern Languages and Science in 1920 (same year Dr. William J. Hutchins was appointed President of the College -- Hutchins and Hirschy had been seminary students together at Oberlin). Hirschy would become a Professor of Botany one year later and serve as head of the botany department until his death in March of 1925. While at Berea, Dr. Hirschy was known as a “real” teacher-- with his Sunday school classes crowded and his lectures well attended.
