LWC Board Member Was A Patriot With A Heart For Students Admired Lindsey Wilson College trustee James F. Sutton is remembered as a man of “great integrity” who loved his country and Lindsey Wilson College. Sutton, formerly of Crestwood, Ky., died June 24. He was 89. Sutton was a member of the Lindsey Wilson Board of Trustees for nearly 20 years, joining in 1999. During that time, he served on numerous committees, including chair of the board’s investment committee. In 2011, he received a doctorate of letters, honoris causa, from LWC. “Jim was an incredibly active trustee,” said LWC President, William T. Luckey Jr. “He had an unmatched passion for education and the students at Lindsey Wilson. He was a wonderful man of great integrity and a true American patriot whose wisdom and loving demeanor will be greatly missed.” Born in 1928 in Asheville, N.C., Sutton was a Marines veteran who served in World War II and the Korean War. Most of his career was spent with General Electric Co. in Louisville, Ky., where he retired after 36 years. He was a lay leader in The United Methodist Church Louisville District and was also active in the church’s Kentucky Annual Conference. Sutton was co-founder of The Lighthouse, a United Methodist Church Community Center that serves underprivileged urban children and families in Louisville. He was also chair of the Lighthouse board of directors, and he was vice president of Lighthouse Promise Inc., Lighthouse’s fund-raising arm. Sutton was preceded in death by his wife of 64 years, Jimmie K. Sutton who passed away in May 2017.

CLASSNOTES Mark R. Dunphy LWC Pine Cone, 1996 LWC Community Remembers Beloved English Professor Longtime Lindsey Wilson College English Professor Mark R. Dunphy, a literary scholar with a deep devotion to his discipline and to teaching, died suddenly on Dec. 12. He was 66. "He was a brilliant man with a passion for his students and his discipline," LWC President William T. Luckey Jr. said. "I remember him as a person who had a love for Herman Melville and Moby-Dick and one who presented frequently at national conferences on topics that were tied to this obsession." Dunphy arrived at LWC in the fall of 1992. He quickly earned a reputation among students as a professor who pushed them to see familiar subjects in new and different ways. "I obviously have a passion for literature," said Dunphy in a 2000 interview. "So I try to convey the passion I have for those writers to my students in numerous ways. Ultimately, I hope that some of that passion will affect (the students) and compel them to examine their lives and the world around them." For much of his career, Dunphy wrote and presented papers to illustrate the intellectual connections between the American writers of the romantic period of the mid-19th century and the American Beat writers of the mid-20th century. His area of expertise included authors Herman Melville, Nathaniel Hawthorne, James Joyce and Jack Kerouac. He once said that he read Melville’s Moby-Dick, which he considered to be the great American novel, at least once a year, and one year he read it once at the start of each season. Dunphy’s work often received attention both nationally and abroad. He was invited by the U.S. Embassy’s Cultural Affairs Office in Rome and the Consulate General in Naples to lecture in Italy in fall 2004. "It’s rather exciting to know that the Beats’ ideas are alive and well in Italy because they represented a movement that was not limited to America," he said. At LWC, Dunphy served on various academic committees. He was past chair of the Humanities Division, and he also served as faculty representative to the president’s cabinet. "I loved to see him on the sidewalk and to hear his distinctive laugh as we exchanged pleasantries," Luckey said. "He was a good man who loved this college and its mission." LWC students also recognized Dunphy’s devotion to teaching and the Lindsey Wilson mission. In 2004-05, he was named Teacher of the Year by the LWC Student Government Association for his "outstanding service to the students and the mission of Lindsey Wilson College." "I learned from Mark about the mission of the College and saw in him somebody who loved and valued that mission of ’every student, every day,’" said friend and colleague LWC Professor of English Tim McAlpine. "He was somebody who very much cared for the whole person. In the eighteen years that I served with him, I always found him as somebody who was concerned with me not just as a cog in a machine that needed to run smoothly but as a person. He provided wise, kind, insightful advice that helped me along my path as a faculty member. Mark Raymond Dunphy was born Feb. 13, 1950, in Boston to John Dunphy, who preceded him in death, and Georgina Byers Cuthbert, who survives. Also surviving: his wife, Judith Ann Ewert Dunphy of Columbia; a daughter, Gina (Joe) Collins of Columbia; two step-sons, Daniel Tishar of Columbia and David Tishar of Breeding, Ky. 41 | LINDSEY WILSON COLLEGE | CORNERSTONE
