Transcript of an oral history interview of Guy and Bess Scruggs conducted by Owen Glen Cosgrove on 21 August 1975. This interview was digitized from cassette format. The Scruggs family was working with Abilene Christian College during its expansion during the 1920s and through the time of the college's dire financial struggles in the 1930s. Mr. Scruggs' thesis on the history of Abilene Christian College is an extensive study of the college during those years. Scruggs and Morris also worked together for many years. Mrs. Scruggs' father was S. N. Allen, for many years a member of the Board of Trustees at Abilene Christian College. Mr. and Mrs. S. N. Allen donated a one-hundred-and-twelve-acre farm to Abilene Christian College in 1944 to help establish the college's agriculture department.
