|Sarah Evelyn Moore, the only woman in the graduating class
of 1916 at API, was the class poet. She wrote, in the class poem,
"A center of study and learning, the site of our dear Auburn College.
Gather at Auburn each autumn, the Freshmen, as green as the grasses; boys
mostly with just a few coeds like blossoms amid the deep verdure..."
A half century later she told the Birmingham News, "When we were there,
there weren't but two autos in all of Auburn. You walked everywhere
you went. When my husband graduated, he hired the horse and buggy
from the local livery stable and we spent the day touring the town." --
