Prof. Charles H. Maxson, the new president of Bishop College, Marshall, Texas, is a native of the State of Ohio. When he was eight years old his parents moved to Iowa, in which State he received his education. He is a graduate of the Iowa State University with the degrees of B.S. and B.D. (Bachelor of Didactics).

Professor Maxson was for four years in the employ of the Society as a teacher in Indian University. Since 1895 he has been engaged in public school work in Iowa,- with the exception of the five years from 1901 to 1906, during which time he served in the Philippines, first as teacher and later as principal of the Iloilo Normal School.

President Maxson thus brings to his work at Bishop College the results of a long and varied experience in school work. He has practical knowledge of work and methods in Manual Training and will be as much at home in the shops at Bishop College as in the class-room.

Mrs. Maxson is a daughter of Rev. S. H. Mitchell, of Iowa, author of a History of Iowa Baptists and at one time a missionary of the Society to the Delaware Indians. Mrs. Maxson, like her husband, was at one time a teacher in Indian University, and is an enthusiastic helper in her husband's work.
