Obituary of Prof. E. H. Randle, Hernando, Mississippi

E. H. Randle, A. M., LL.D., educator, scientific writer, and Christian gentleman, a typical representative of the Old South, died at his home, in Hernando, Miss., on September 27, 1916. He was born in Tennessee in 1830; hence he had reached the ripe old age of eighty-six years. His active life was devoted to school work, except while serving his Southland under that great cavalry leader, Bedford Forrest. Nearly fifty years of his life were devoted to school work in such places as McKenzie and Ripley, Tenn., Paducah, Ky., and Byhalia and Hernando, Miss. He was not only a successful educator, but an author well known in the scientific world. The books published by him are:: "Plurality of the Human Race," "Characteristics of the Southern Negro," and "Antagonism of Forces in Nature." He was a contributor to the Memphis Commercial-Appeal, also to religious, medical and legal magazines, and was a member of the American Society for Scientific Research.

Professor Randle was a member of the Methodist Church and was always ready to advance the cause of Christ, and by his daily walk and conversation he was a benediction to those with whom he came in contact. His students had forceful evidence of his goodness of heart and his constant effort to lead them in the right paths. He leaves a wife, daughter, and three sons, the latter being residents of Paducah, Ky., Yazoo City, Miss., and Chattanooga, Tenn.
