Abstract

Karl T. Waugh was born to missionary parents in Cawnpore, India, in 1879, and attended primary and secondary schools in both India and the United States. He graduated from Ohio Wesleyan (1900) and Harvard (1906) and taught at Harvard before going on to teach at the University of Chicago and Beloit College. In 1917, Waugh joined the Army at the rank of Major and much of his work during this time focused on developing and implementing an intelligence-testing program to aid in recruit training assignments. From 1919 to 1923, Waugh taught and worked at Berea and serving as the College Dean, Professor of Education, and Associate College Preacher.

From Berea, Waugh went to the University of Southern California and he later became President of Dickinson College (Pennsylvania) and then served as Pennsylvania's director of student aid for the National Youth Administration. After WWII, Waugh worked for the Veterans Administration as a supervisor of counseling and guidance.

Waugh's tenure at Berea coincided with the College's presidential transition from William Goodell Frost to William J. Hutchins.  Under Waugh's administration, Berea's College Department grew from 128 to 344 students.  Waugh introduced the credit point system, strengthened debate and oratory activities, and was interested in counseling homesick and struggling students.
