Rico Report
BY MARLENE HAZEN
...Sadly, we must inform those of you who do not already know that Helen Leavell (husband Grady, deceased) passed away Dec. 8 after a lengthy illness. We all have wonderful memories of Helen. She was a very giving, wonderful mother, wife and friend.
...And Helen was talented. She made perfectly tailored Western shirts for Grady and loved doing it. She loved everything about Grady, for that matter. We extend our most sincere condolences to her family. ...The funeral was Thursday, Dec. 15, at the Ertel Chapel in Cortez.

CORTEZ JOURNAL "Rico Report" for Saturday, December 24th 2005
..At Helen Leavell's service at the Ertel Chapel on the 15th, family and friends shared stories about her. Glen Baer said that Helen, who drove the school bus from Rico for 20 years or so (and drove the children to their Red Cross swim lessons in Cortez each summer), had gone out early one morning and started the school bus to warm it up.
..Glen and Louise were in Cortez at their other home and received a call from Helen apologizing for an accident - the bus had rolled across the street, through two fences and into the side of the Baer's garage.
..But the best story was when Helen and Grady had been married for a while and saved up their money to buy a washing machine. Helen sent Grady to town to buy the much needed machine, but Grady came home with a mule!
..After a few easily understood comments, Helen declared that the mule would be named "Maytag." Maytag lived to be more than 30-some years old. We shall never forget Helen and Grady Leavell.

Dying for compensation
Ex-uranium miners get only IOUs after government admits fault for illnesses
March 11, 2001
by M.E. Sprengelmeyer
News Washington Bureau
.....Richard Leavell doesn't want to die with a government IOU in his pocket.
.....Like his father, Merle, Leavell helped the United States fight the Cold War from the trenches of the Colorado Plateau.
.....And like his father, he paid a high price.
.....The Leavells were uranium miners, helping provide the raw material America craved for its nuclear arsenal.
.....Only years later did the federal government tell miners about the deadly health risks they faced while blasting and digging through the hills of the Four Corners region, breathing radioactive dust that would take its toll as they aged.
.....After Merle Leavell was left with radiation-related lung damage, the federal government promised $100,000 of "compassionate compensation" under a law enacted by Congress in 1990. But the check didn't arrive until after his death in 1995.
.....Now the same thing could happen to his son because of a funding oversight in Congress last year and a long list of unpaid government IOUs.
.....At 57, Richard Leavell suffers from pulmonary fibrosis and silicosis of the lungs, which leave him gasping for air and tied to expensive, ever-present bottles of oxygen.
"I can't do anything. This is no kind of life," he said from his home in Cortez.
.....Last year, the government sent him a notice that he qualifies for $100,000 compensation. ....."Regretfully," the letter said, there's no money to back it up.
.....Doctors aren't sure whether Leavell will live another six months or several years, but he says government officials don't seem to be in any hurry.
....."They told us they accept responsibility, and this was supposed to be some kind of apology," Leavell said. "It's not much of an apology if you don't get it."
.....The Radiation Exposure Compensation Act is in a crisis, but even an emergency fix could come too late for many of about 275 aging former miners, nuclear test participants, downwinders or their surviving spouses with unpaid IOUs.
.....Commonly known as RECA, the program got only $10.8 million this fiscal year but needs at least $84 million on top of that to pay all the claims expected to be approved in 2001.
.....And although Congress voted to increase each victim's compensation by $50,000, President Bush put that on hold while he reviews virtually every regulation approved last year. Bush has also signaled he is reluctant to approve any supplemental funding requests while he focuses on a proposed $1.6 trillion tax cut.
....."Here we've got this huge surplus in Washington, D.C., and the government is sending these IOUs to people who are dying," said Rebecca Rockwell, a private investigator from Durango who helps miners compile their claims.
....."I've lost 10 of my IOU holders since October," Rockwell said. "The problem is people are dying. I've gone to about as many funerals as I can take."
.....Sens. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, and Pete Domenici, R-N.M., recently introduced legislation asking for about $84 million in emergency appropriations.
.....Rep. Scott McInnis, whose district includes the mining country of western Colorado, plans to introduce a House version of the emergency funding bill. Rep. Mark Udall, who also has IOU holder in his district, joined the call for emergency appropriations.
.....However, legislative analysts say it's unlikely any new money could be approved before the summer or, more likely, at the end of the fiscal year in October.
.....The IOUs are worse than an embarrassment or inconvenience, said Ed Brickey, co-chairman of the Western States RECA Reform Coalition, a coalition of citizens groups that are advocates for victims covered by the act.
....."It has been an injustice to delay any further appropriations or the regulations because the people that have (IOUs) are dying," Brickey said.
.....The RECA program has long been plagued by complaints about a complex application process that often takes victims many tries and several years to clear.
.....The program got into its current funding mess during the eleventh-hour haggling over the budget in late 2000. Ironically, it came just months after Congress amended the law to ease restrictions, cover more medical conditions, add another $50,000 in compensation under a separate program, and allow uranium mill workers and ore transporters to qualify for the first time.
.....The Justice Department estimated it would take $93 million to cover all the claims expected to be approved in fiscal 2001. But that request came too late, and when the budget was approved in December it included only $10.8 million for the trust fund. The shortfall includes about $23 million for those already waiting for their money.
.....The waiting has left many victims bitter and hopeless in the small towns of southern and western Colorado, eastern Utah and northern New Mexico, where uranium once meant a livelihood, not death.
"These guys went underground. They would work their butts off, sometimes 10 to 16 hours a day . . . so the government could get their damned uranium," said Anna Cox of Montrose. "And how do they get repaid? They die for it, with a promissory note that maybe you'll get something . . . after you're dead."
.....Her 63-year-old husband, Eugene, has lung cancer after about 10 years in the uranium mines. He worked in the uranium mines outside Grants, N.M., and Naturita, Slick Rock and Gateway, Colo.
.....In the early days, before strict radon monitoring, companies and workers gave little regard to the health risks, he said.
....."It was work, guaranteed," Eugene Cox said. "You drilled holes with a jackhammer and you shot, blasted out. Then you loaded, either with a slusher or by hand and a scoop shovel."
.....Dust filled the air, but workers never wore protective masks. They used gloves only if they bought their own. Some miners remember days when the only "fresh air" they breathed was what leaked out of the air compressors that ran the jackhammers.
....."I was a young, healthy man," Eugene Cox said. "I did not know. It was a livelihood for me and my three children and my wife."
.....He worked in uranium, gold and silver mines more than four decades and retired about five years ago when he began developing the lung cancer.
.....His physical deterioration is especially painful for his wife, who lost her father in a uranium mine blast in 1954 and has watched cousins and uncles, all uranium miners, go down to cancer.
.....It took three years for Eugene Cox to jump through all the hoops verifying his work history and qualify his illness for the compensation. Last year, he finally got an approval letter, which explained the lack of funding and told him to wait.
....."I stuck it in a box," Anna Cox said. "That's what good it's doing me."
.....Uranium left its mark on whole communities throughout the Four Corners region.
.....Just across the Colorado border in tiny Monticello, Utah, local newspaper editor Bill Boyle has a map stuck with more than 200 pins -- one for each local resident who died or is dying of a radiation-related illness.
.....One pin represents a small, one-story house in the center of town.
.....There, former miner Joe Torres has turned his family's living room into a medical ward, with a bed propped where the sofa should be. Cancer has spread from his lungs to his liver, and a government IOU is doing him little good when he needs to buy more painkilling patches.
....."I'm very shaken," he said. "I can't do a bit of work. And Social Security doesn't give me enough money to pay for my medicines ... I'd like to get at least part of my money to get by."
.....Combined, he and his wife, Vicenta, get just over $1,000 a month from Social Security. The painkillers alone cost $300 a month, and health insurance is coming due soon, she said.
.....Torres, 74, grew up in New Mexico, moved to Utah with his family in 1941 and started working in the mines in 1951.
....."They went in and worked and came back pretty well dusty from head to toe," Vicenta remembers. "But he had no idea that in time it would do something to them."
.....Lawyer Keith Killian of Grand Junction has filed 65 claims on behalf of miners. Eleven have been approved for compensation. Of that group, only two are still alive. Just two have received their checks, and one of those died within a month. Nine died waiting.
....."Our point is real simple: People are dying," Killian said. "They aren't going to be young men. They're sick already. Time is of the essence."
.....Since 1990, the RECA program has relied on year-to-year allocations in the federal budget. Several lawmakers say it should be converted into an entitlement program so payments are guaranteed without a year-to-year budget fight. But they disagree how to accomplish that.
.....Reps. Mark Udall, D-Colo., Tom Udall, D-N.M., and James Matheson, D-Utah, have proposed moving the program into the Department of Labor and making it an entitlement program.
.....However, some RECA advocates are wary, fearing that the administrative switch would only add to delays. Mark Udall said it's a valid concern and that he'll study it. For now, filling the trust fund's coffers should be a national priority, he said.
....."These people, as you know, have been jacked around for a lot of years," Mark Udall said. "The statement we would make by providing them with this compensation they're due would be more than the money."
.....Meanwhile, surviving victims struggle to pay high medical bills and widows wait, not knowing when the government's promise will be met.
.....In Aztec, N.M., 56-year-old miner's widow Helen Story says she's at her mobile home only a few hours a day during the week. She works two jobs -- a day shift and an overnight shift -- taking care of elderly hospice patients to get by.
.....She worked the same jobs while her husband, Jerald, fought the final months against cancer and died last March at 59.
.....Jerald Story started working in the uranium and coal mines as a teen-ager. He never built up a pension because, like many miners, he bounced from one company to another over several decades. Health problems forced him to retire and go onto Social Security disability in the early 1980s. "I was having to work as much as I could, which took time away from him," Helen Story said. "Some days you think you just can't take much more."
.....The couple first applied for RECA compensation three years ago. The government IOU came after Jerald Story's death, and his widow has become bitter.
....."If they weren't going to stand good with the program, they never should have started it," Helen Story scoffs. "It's for sure that if we owed the government, they wouldn't wait this long on us."
.....Retired uranium miner Bob Key, 61, of Fruita, breathes through a tracheotomy tube because of a lung condition he got in the mines. He's surviving financially but is about to back out of follow-up treatments and a respiratory study in Denver because he can't afford the travel.
.....Until the IOU becomes a real payment, "I think it's a broken promise," Key said.
.....For uranium miners in the late 1950s, cave-ins and flooding were a bigger concern than radiation. The conventional wisdom was that unprocessed uranium ore was safe until the refinery milled it into yellowcake, said Harold Jackson of Lafayette, whose father, Alvy Jackson, died of cancer and emphysema in November 1991.
.....Alvy Jackson was a "dirt farmer" in Texas until a severe drought blew his family off their farm in 1955. Jackson took a job with Phillips Petroleum and in 1958 was transferred to work in the Anna Lee mine in Valencia, N.M. The work was dirty and dangerous, but it paid $5 an hour at a time when the minimum wage was 30 cents. It was no small consideration to a man with five sons.
.....Alvy Jackson died at 73. Jackson never worked long enough to earn a pension. His 80-year-old widow, Inez, gets a $791 Social Security check each month. Her sons are successful businessmen, however -- one is a former president of Merck Pharmaceuticals -- and pay for her home and her car. Though she is grateful, "A mother hates to live off of her children," she said.
.....She got a government IOU last August, but so far it's just paper.
....."You have to ask yourself, what would happen to you if you sent an IOU to the IRS, saying, `I'm out of money, and when I get some, I'll send it to you,' " Harold Jackson said. "But if you die before then, I'll just keep it. If Mom passes away while the government's screwing around, then the government has saved (its) $150,000."

Hello
.....My name is Kyle E Baker. I have sent two info sheets on Clay Arnold Leavell by separate e-mails. (I am still learning my way around the geneaology game!) As you can see I am married to Nancy, Clays daughter. I have or will get the info on Barbara Sue, the other daughter, and forward as soon as possible. We live nearby, in Medina, and Barbara Sue and her family live in Cuyahoga Falls.
We believe that the first listing for children of William Kavanaugh Leavell is incorrect. The family has never heard of this name and William would have been 9 yrs old at that time.
.....The land mentioned at Point Leavell in Garrard Co. Ky. is still in the family to the best of my knowledge. The home was occupied by William Kavanaugh and his family. Clay Arnold Leavell and his brothers and sister grew up there. Later it was owned by his sister Minnie Lee Leavell Arnold and her husband and now belongs to one of her children.
.....As an aside our family say Lu vell' but the Ky people say Level,as in "it's hanging level". If you are still actively pursuing the family records let me know and I will try to speed up my next report. My own family efforts tend to wax and wane. Right now I'm waxing a little. My mother recently passed away and I saw a lot of relatives in Tn,at the funeral, so my interest is renewed.If you like I can try to be a conduit for the Garrad Co. Leavell current information. Please let me know if you're interested

MEMORIAL RESOLUTION
ARNAUD BRUCE LEAVELLE
(1914 - 1956)

…..Arnaud Bruce Leavelle was born in North Hollywood, California, July 19, 1914. He was the son of Arnaud Bruce Leavelle, Sr., and Elizabeth Bryan Leavelle. His father was descended from French Huguenots who came to America to escape the persecutions of Catherine De 'Medici. His mother's family was Scotch-Irish. Vigor of intellect and intensity of professional dedication were common traits in both families. Members of each family had been prominent in politics and the Professions. A number were Baptist ministers, and his maternal grandfather Robert T. Bryan was dean of the Baptist missionary movement in China.
…..Arnaud B. Leavelle attended the Gardner Grammar School in North Hollywood until 1923. He was outstanding both in scholarship and in athletics. He accompanied his mother to Shanghai in 1923, continuing his education at the British School in Shanghai, and the American School of Nanking, where he was voted the most popular student and continued to excel in his studies and in athletics.
…..In 1924 he was stricken by poliomyelitis. Four months later, accompanied by his mother, he returned to the United States on a stretcher. He spent his first year of homecoming undergoing repeated operations in an orthopedic hospital. His determination and courage set him apart from other patients. Five years of home treatment followed. During his bedridden period he expanded his intellectual interests by omnivorous reading.
…..He entered North Hollywood High School in his senior year. By this time he could make his way on crutches. He was an outstanding scholar, and the energy which formerly had been channeled into athletics was now displayed in extracurricular debating in which he won the World Friendship Debates.
…..He graduated from the University of California at Los Angeles with the class of 1937. Here he won undergraduate honors in political science, was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, and was an outstanding member of the debate team. He continued his graduate work in that institution until he received the doctorate. He held successive scholarships and a fellowship, and his graduate record was exceptional. His field of special interest was political theory, with emphasis upon American political thought. His doctoral dissertation, "The Political Theories and Constitutional Doctrines of James Wilson," dealt with one of the major figures in the formative period of our government--important both for the offices he held and for the legal and political philosophy which he formulated. He continued to expand and develop his study of Wilson, and had virtually completed it at the time of his death.
…..Before coming to Stanford in 1946, Professor Leavelle served on the faculties of the University of Illinois and of Swarthmore College. During the decade of his association with this University, he continued modestly, patiently, and steadfastly to expand his already comprehensive knowledge in the field of political theory. Students came quickly to recognize and to admire his wide learning and marked intellectual distinction. Much of the power and impact in his undergraduate teaching was in his lectures. Here his keen, inquisitive mind, his gift for logical analysis, and his eager interest in his subject were apparent. His teaching combined high standards with a broad tolerance. Shortly after his death, the junior class, in an unusual but highly appropriate action, established the Arnaud B. Leavelle memorial prize to be awarded annually to the outstanding student in the course, Introduction to Logical Thought. This is an outward and visible token of the respect and affection in which he was held.
…..To the selection and training of graduate students, Professor Leavelle brought sympathy and understanding. He served for six years as departmental adviser of entering graduate students who appreciated his patient counsel and keen perception. He directed effectively Political Science 400, a rigorous, pioneer course, instituted by Professor Charles Fairman, now of Harvard, and dealing with the scope and method of political science in research, he chose his way with extreme caution and after careful deliberation. He was, perhaps, too cautious in his reluctance to expose himself to criticism. His article--- published in some half-dozen journals display maturity of judgment and able scholarship. It is hoped that the definitive study of James Wilson can soon be published.
…..Professor Leavelle knew that the basis of political science is the problem of authority and liberty. In consideration of this problem, a department must concern itself with the legal, historical, comparative, philosophical, and professional aspects of the discipline. He believed that behavioral science can contribute in achieving precision in certain areas of political science, but can explain only a part of the totality of the subject. Naive allegations that behaviorism is the "scientific component" of political science were to him unconvincing and somewhat amusing.
…..In 1944, he married Miss Nancy 0. Morgan, who had been a student in his classes at Swarthmore College. She and three daughters survive him.
…..His professional accomplishments received wide recognition. In 1952-1953 he was a Fulbright Fellow at Nuffield College, Oxford, studying the role of incentives in British Socialism. He participated in the Salzburg Seminar during his stay in Europe. He served as a member of the Executive Committee of the American Political Science Association, and as an editorial associate on the American Political Science Review. Professor Leavelle was the President of the Northern California Political Science Association in the year of his death. As a member of several University committees, and as chairman of the important Library Committee, he combined accurate knowledge with courtesy and capacity.
…..His departmental colleagues gladly testify to his unfailing courtesy, friendship, and cooperation. His death in his 43rd year is a great loss to Stanford University and to its Department of Political Science. Applied to Arnaud B. Leavelle, the phrase gentleman and scholar has true meaning.

A James Berry Leavell JR died on 11-04-1996 in Harris County, Texas

May 24, 1925, in HOUSTON CHRONICLE:
,,,,,Dr. J.R. Leavell, pastor of the First Baptist Church, has a more or less direct interest in the impending test case of evolution in Dayton, Tenn., sometimes referred to as the “monkey law” trial.
,,,,,Doctor Leavell is related by marriage to Governor Austin Peay of Tennessee, who signed the anti-evolution law. That the Leavells, who are rockribbed fundamentalists, have influenced to some extent the fundamentalist belief of Governor Peay, is the opinion in some quarters.

Memorials: Please make contributions in her memory to the Newport Foundation, c/o Larry Williams, 12800 Hillcrest Rd., #A224, Dallas, Texas, 75230; or a charity of choice .

.....Eddie Belle Leavell Newport was born June 12, 1919, in Memphis, Tenn. She was the daughter of Frank Hartwell Leavell and Martha Maria Boone, both of whom were deeply involved in Southern Baptist work. Her father was one of nine Leavell brothers from Oxford, Miss., most of whom were full-time Southern Baptists preachers, missionaries, teachers or denominational workers. Eddie Belle attended Ward-Belmont College, now Belmont University, in Nashville and graduated from Meredith College in Raleigh, N.C. In 1941 she married John P. Newport, who served as pastor of four churches in Mississippi, Oklahoma and elsewhere before devoting himself to teaching, lecturing and writing books. In 1952 the couple moved to Fort Worth when John began his long career at Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, retiring as vice president for Academic Affairs and Provost. He earlier taught at Baylor University and for three years in the 1970s at Rice University in Houston, where Eddie Belle expanded her wide circle of friends. Eddie Belle was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and, recently, great-grandmother. She was a member of Broadway Baptist Church and taught an adult Sunday school class there for many years. She also taught the independent Ray Reimers Bible Class and was an active member of The Woman's Club of Fort Worth. She earned a master's degree in history from Texas Christian University, writing her thesis on the planning of Washington, D.C., and taught for a while at the Edna Gladney Home, now the Gladney Center for Adoption, in Fort Worth and at River Oaks Baptist School in Houston. She loved to travel, and ultimately found great satisfaction leading tour and study groups around the world, at first in partnership with John and then on her own. Among her favorite destinations spanning five continents were the Holy Land, India and New Zealand. In 1979, she led one of the first U.S. groups to visit mainland China, where she returned numerous times. She was greatly appreciated and admired for her grace, her goodness, her determination, her desire to serve others, her sense of humor and her love of family. The family deeply appreciates the nurses and staff at Broadway Plaza in Fort Worth and the Holly Hall Retirement Community in Houston, who have helped care for her in recent years.

The Rev. Landrum Leavell II, Baptist pastor, leader
Sunday, September 28, 2008
By Bruce Nolan
Staff writer
.....The Rev. Landrum Leavell II, who built New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary into one of the largest in the country, died in Wichita Falls, Texas, on Friday, the seminary said. He was 81.
.....The school did not disclose a cause of death, but spokesman Paul South said he had been ill for some time.
.....Although he considered himself primarily a pastor, the Rev. Leavell held two doctor of divinity degrees and a doctorate in theology. A graduate of the Gentilly seminary himself, he had been a pastor of churches in Mississippi and Texas for 26 years when the struggling seminary asked him to become its seventh president in late 1974.
.....In 21 years under Leavell, the seminary's enrollment more than quadrupled and its endowment grew from $1.5 million to $23 million.
.....With an enrollment of about 3,600 full- and part-time students, the Gentilly seminary is the third or fourth largest in the country, said Leavell's successor, Chuck Kelley.
.....During the Rev. Leavell's presidency, the seminary reached far beyond its Gentilly campus. It established an extensive network of satellite centers across the Southeast, where distant students can pursue seminary studies. Some are linked by video so students in Orlando or Atlanta can take classes with their counterparts in New Orleans.
.....The Rev. Leavell also rescued from near collapse the school's undergraduate program, which was conceived by his uncle, Roland Leavell, the seminary's fourth president.
....."By any standard of measurement, he was one of the greatest presidents in the history of this institution," Kelley said during ceremonies honoring the Leavell family in 2003.
.....The Rev. Leavell came to the seminary just as its parent, the Southern Baptist Convention, was plunging into what would become known as "the conservative resurgence," a tumultuous period in which Southern Baptist institutions of all kinds were retooled -- sometimes brutally purged -- by ascendant theological conservatives determined to return the convention to traditional understandings of Scripture and the meaning of Jesus as the sole source of salvation.
.....While other institutions were wracked by controversy, the Rev. Leavell managed to thread the seminary through the upheaval with relatively little turmoil, Kelley said.
.....Largely because the Rev. Leavell was widely recognized as a theological conservative himself, newly empowered conservative leaders outside the school did not impose upon it the ideological brawls that convulsed some others.
.....The Rev. Leavell "kept the institution focused on its mission, which was turning out the next generation of pastors and ministers," Kelley said. "There was no talk of the conflict in chapel, no public reference to it anywhere. He never asked what side anybody was on.
....."It was a simple strategy, brilliantly executed," Kelley said.
.....Born in Tennessee, the Rev. Leavell was reared in Georgia in a legendary family in Southern Baptist lore. His grandparents, George Washington and Corra Leavell, bore nine sons, eight of whom became Southern Baptist pastors, evangelists, missionaries and denominational leaders.
.....The Gentilly seminary's distinctive white-steepled chapel is named after his uncle, Roland Leavell, and its Center for Evangelism and Church Growth is named after Landrum Leavell II. In 2003, the seminary named its undergraduate college Leavell College after the whole family.
.....Outside education, the Rev. Leavell was a vice president of the Southern Baptist Convention and was president of Baptist General Convention of Texas, the main Southern Baptist organization in that state.
.....He was a longtime trustee of the old Baptist Hospital in New Orleans, then became a founding trustee of Baptist Community Ministries, which administered the assets from the sale of that hospital.
.....The Rev. Leavell also authored or contributed to 14 books.
.....He is survived by his wife of 55 years, Jo Ann; three sons: the Rev. Landrum P. Leavell III, Roland Q. Leavell II and the Rev. David E. Leavell; a daughter: Ann Paris Leavell; and 10 grandchildren.
.....A funeral service will be held Tuesday at First Baptist Church, Wichita Falls. Interment will be Thursday in Newnan, Ga.
.....The New Orleans seminary will hold a memorial service at a date to be announced.

LEAVELL Seminary mourns passing of President Emeritus Dr. Landrum P. Leavell II WICHITA FALLS, Texas -- Dr. Landrum P. Leavell II, President Emeritus at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary, age 81, died Sept. 26, 2008 in Wichita Falls, Texas. Born in Ripley, Tenn., Nov. 26, 1926, Leavell was raised in Newnan, Ga., where his father, Dr. Leonard O. Leavell, served as pastor of the First Baptist Church. On July 28, 1953 he married Jo Ann Paris of New Orleans, a graduate of Sophie Newcomb College. He went on to become the President of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary and one of the most influential Southern Baptist leaders of his generation. Leavell was ordained to the gospel ministry in 1948 and began pastoring a church in Mississippi during his time as a student at New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary. Leavell earned a B.A. in English from Mercer University and a B.D. degree and a Th.D. in New Testament and Greek from NOBTS. During his 27 years as a pastor, Leavell served at Union Baptist Church in Magnolia, Miss. (1948-1951); Crosby Baptist Church in Crosby, Miss. (1951-53); First Baptist Church in Charleston, Miss. (1953-1956); First Baptist Church in Gulfport, Miss. (1956-1963) and First Baptist Church in Wichita Falls, Texas (1963-1975). Leavell served in many capacities in the Southern Baptist Convention, the Baptist General Convention of Texas and the Mississippi Baptist Convention Board. He was First Vice President of the Southern Baptist Convention in 1968 and President of the SBC Pastors Conference in 1971. Leavell served as President of the Baptist General Convention of Texas from 1971 to 1973. Since his retirement Leavell served on the Board of Trustees at Mississippi College. Leavell shared a life-long love of and passion for quail hunting. He was a dedicated father who traveled untold miles following his sons' football and basketball careers. His oldest son said, "He was a tough fighter to the end; he just didn't have much left to fight with. There are a lot of tracks in the sand behind him. I would hope my rear view mirror was so crowded." In addition to his denominational roles, Leavell was an active community leader serving with a number of civic groups including the Mayor's Bi-Racial Committee in Gulfport Miss.; the Board of United Fund and Child Welfare Board of Wichita Falls, Texas; and the Rotary Club of New Orleans. He was also long-time trustee of Baptist Hospital in New Orleans. Upon the sale of Baptist Hospital, he became a founding trustee of Baptist Community Ministries, a foundation developed to administer the assets generated from the sale. Reflecting its Baptist heritage, the foundation from its inception, has invested its resources in meeting the health and educational needs of the citizens of the New Orleans area. Upon the occasion of his retirement from the seminary, Baptist Community Ministries created an endowed faculty chair in psychology and counseling in his honor. Friends of Dr. Leavell also created an endowed faculty chair in New Testament and Greek that bears his name. The City of New Orleans designated a portion of the campus as Leavell Lane in honor of the many contributions of he and his uncle, Roland Q. Leavell. Seminary trustees named the Center for Evangelism and Church Growth in his honor as well. Among Leavell's key honors include the George Washington Honor Medal Award from the Freedoms Foundation of Valley Forge, Pa., the Paul Harris Fellow by the Rotary Foundation, and the J.D. Grey Preaching Award from the Louisiana Moral and Civic Foundation. Leavell was elected as President of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary in January 1975. He served in that role until his retirement Dec. 31, 1994. Leavell served as interim president until Dec. 31, 1995. "By any standard of measurement, Dr. Leavell is one of the greatest presidents that this seminary ever had," said current NOBTS President Dr. Chuck Kelley. During his presidency the seminary experienced record growth, outstanding success in fund raising and a significant expansion of its campus. The campus became known by all who visited as one of the most beautiful spots in New Orleans. Leavell believed that the care and preparation of a minister's family was as important as the preparation of the minister. He enhanced the campus recreation facilities, and along with his wife, Jo Ann, gave great attention to the needs of student wives. The Leavells launched many initiatives to assist student wives including free educational programs, an endowment to buy clothes for student wives and the Leavell Lecture Series. The Leavell Lecture Series was established by the Leavell family to honor Mrs. Leonard O. Leavell, Dr. Leavell's mother. The series honors Mrs. Leavell's work as a minister's wife and is designed encourage those student wives who will one day serve in that role. He often arranged for free child care for campus events to enable wives to participate in seminary life. During his 20-year tenure, the seminary became an innovator in theological education while continuing to emphasize evangelism, missions and local church ministry. Under Leavell's leadership New Orleans Seminary established a network of extension centers throughout the Southeast. Leavell also invested in educational technology. He introduced compressed interactive video (CIV), which connects classrooms in different cities for real-time audio and video interaction. His innovations helped the seminary offer world-class theological education to even more God-called men and women. During Leavell's presidency, NOBTS also established the first center for evangelism and church growth in the Southern Baptist Convention, connecting the resources and expertise of the seminary with needs of local churches throughout the SBC. Leavell also was the driving force behind the re-establishment of the seminary's undergraduate program. His uncle Roland Leavell, who served as the seminary's president from 1946 until 1958, started the School of Christian Training in 1954. However, the school closed a few years later. Landrum Leavell envisioned an accredited college that would offer ministry training to adult students without college degrees. He restarted the school in 1976 with only 30 students. Now more than 1,000 men and women study at the undergraduate college. Four of the other five SBC seminaries now have similar programs. In 2003, the school was renamed Leavell College in honor of the seminary's two Leavell presidents. A gifted writer, Leavell authored or contributed to 14 books including "Angels, Angels, Angels" and "Twelve Who Followed Jesus." Survivors include his wife of 55 years, JoAnn Paris Leavell, children: Dr. Landrum P. Leavell III and Susanne of Denton, Texas, Ann Leavell Beauchamp of Greensboro, Ga., Roland Q. Leavell II and Lisa of Jackson, Miss., and Dr. David E. Leavell and Vicki of Springfield, Tenn., and sister Margaret Leavell Mann of Newnan, Ga. Grandchildren: Gentry and Paris Leavell, Beau, Andrew, JoAnn, and David Beauchamp, Lucy and Ro Leavell, and J.D., Laura Leigh, and Walker Leavell.

Dinner with the Leavells in Oxford
...Jerry Leavell: "Glenn was a veritable tornado of activity."
...Me: "Really? From what age?"
...Jerry and Naomi Leavell (in unison): "From the very beginning!"
...Mr. Leavell then went on to tell the charming story of the first time he laid eyes on his wriggling newborn son. It was one of those classic anecdotes that only a parent can tell and just the first of many told over the most gooey and delicious lasagna I think I’ve ever eaten.
...Lisa and I rolled into brother-in-law-Glenn’s home town of Oxford, Mississippi, the day after that cool lunar eclipse and were lucky enough to catch his folks around and available to meet us for dinner the next evening. So after a pleasant day of roaming the Ole Miss campus (University of Mississippi, as its more formally named) and an hour or so in the very groovy Square Books on one corner of this traditional courthouse-in-the-center town square, we met Jerry and Naomi Leavell at the Old Venice Pizza Company for a thoroughly delightful evening of dinner and conversation. This was indeed a rare treat, as our always-engaging visits with the elder Leavells, he a retired law professor and her a Latin scholar, are usually confined to those holiday get-togethers on those infrequent years when all of us happen to wind up in the same town. And it was certainly nice to be listening to someone else’s parents telling the funny but mildly embarrassing stories rather than to hear my parents talking about me!
...Thanks again for dinner, Mr. And Mrs. Leavell! We very much enjoyed our time in Oxford and our evening with you

.....Veterans of four major U.S. wars participated in a Veterans Day program Thursday evening, November 11, at the Mary Willis Library....
.....Robert Leavell was equally modest about his contributions in the China-Burma-India as part of the famous “Flying Tigers” in World War II.
....."I’m a little embarrassed to speak for World War II because I know so many others much more qualified and deserving," Leavell said. He mentioned Jack Rhodes, Rady Hunter, and Erskine Wickersham, in addition to fellow panel member Joe Tutt.
.....Leavell finished high school in Mississippi in 1942. He went into the Air Force and earned his wings as a pilot in 1944. His group went to Tallahassee for deployment, but Leavell broke his hand and was left behind when his group went to Europe. He went to China instead flew P-40s and P-51s “over the hump” to Calcutta, India.
.....Leavell was on 'combat flight alert' when the war ended and expected to be involved in an invasion of Japan. He credited the use of the atomic bomb in Hiroshima and Nagasaki with hastening the end of the war and saving "hundreds of thousands of lives."

Notes for CORA LUTICIA NEEL:
Funera lservices will be held for Mrs. Cora L. Polk, 92, tomorrow at 10am in the Assembly of God Tabernacle, Burial will follow in the Smith Mountain Cemetery under the direction of the Dopkins Chapel. She died Thursday in a Dinuba Convalescent home. A native of Mississippi, she had lived 17 years with her son William S. Polk. Mrs. Polk has been a widow since November 1918 when her husband died at the age of 45. She was left with 11 children to feed and cloth and she has vivid memories of the struggle they had which would not have been possible had it not been for raising their own food on the farm. She came to California in 1930 with her younger son Bill after the other children had married.

. Following is story told to Marilyn (Polk) Griffen by her father William Sylvester Polk, about his mother, Cora Luticia Neel Polk, and his father William Washington Polk, regarding Cora's parents William Francis Neel and Mary Matilda Hodges Neel.
,,,"My father said that their family, which was large ( 7 or 8 kids at that time under the age of eight) was poor tenant farmers. Sometimes they'd be very low on food supplies so they'd all pile into heir old hauling wagon and head for grandpa Neel's place to survive, more or less. They also did this at Christmas and other holidays. It would take several hours (all day I believe), but my dad and all the kids said he was so happy when they go to their grandparents place. He said they had so much fun playing with all the animals and running through the brush. They lived in a hilly place. He was always intrigued when his grandpa Neel called his pigs in. He'd go out to the front yard, clap his hands around his mouth and yell S-U-U-U-U-W-E-E-E-E; S-U-U-U-W-E-E-E-e and pigs would come flying down out of those hills and from every which way".
,,,"Another memory he had about his grandpas is that they always had a smoke house full of meat. Some laying, some stacked. Also he said his grandpa used to make something called Hog'shead which consisted of all unused parts of the pig cut into small pieces, pressed together into a loaf type of thing. They would just cut some off and eat.. He said being at his grandpa Neel's place was the happiest memory of his life. Course, he was the oldest boy and had to work hard with his father in the fields. He started holding a plow at age 6 and he said he'd get so tired he'd fall asleep and his father would have to come and pull his hands from the plow, because the horse would be pulling him along. My father only was able to complete the 4th grade as he had to help farm"
,,,"He always thought his mother Cora married off the poorest of all the Neel girls. He loved his father very much though. He said that when they left Grandpa Neel's their wagon would always be loaded down with smoked meats and fresh vegetables and canned fruits, etc.,. He loved that trip."

Notes for MARY ALABAMA NEEL:
Obituary Reads: Funeral services were held at the Assembly of God Gospel Tabernacle Monday afternoon with the Rev. T.C. Billings, paster, officiating. Internment was in Big Meadow cemetery. Mrs Thomas passed away at her home half and hour after a heart attack that medical assistance was unable to overcome. She had recently undergone a successful major operation at the Pershing General Hospital and appeared well on the way to recovery. Mrs Thomas was christened Mary Alabama Neel following her birth at Marshall Arkansas on Jan 20, 1996. Her parents were Wm. and Mary Neel. When she was very young, the family moved to Oklahoma. When she was entering her teen-age, her parents both died. Her brother, Walter Neal and wife formerly of Lovelock nut now of Winnemucca, provided her with a home, and affectionate ties continued until her death. In 1912, Mary Alabama Neel was married to Arthur Thomas in Oregon.Their first daughter Etta was born there. The family then moved to Chandler, Arizona then to California and finally to Nevada. They came to Lovlock from Smith Valley in 1943 with Mr. Thomas following the occupation of farm contracting. Mrs. Thomas's finest characteristic was motherliness. She devoted herself to her family and did a good job of it. As a consequence, the family ties are very close. In addition she and Mr. Thomas have provided a home for their daughter, Mrs. Etta Higgins Kruckow, and small granddaughters, Linda & Brenda, following the tragic death of their son-in-law Roy Higgins several years ago. Mrs. Thomas had a bouyant spirit that pervaded her home and radiated among her friends and it will be because of that Christian spirit she will be remembered.

For Robert S. J. Leavelle
. . . We will miss Bob (SJ) very much. We enjoyed his music and love of music so much at the cuzzin's reunions. He reminded me of his dad, and how Uncle Joy loved his family; and, it seemed especially my mom. We all enjoyed he and Aunt Willie's visits through the years. I am so glad Bob took the time to get reacquainted with his younger Leavelle cousins during these past 5 years. Cuzzin Pat (Brown) Corbin (Milburn, OK) July 13, 2003. .

. . . We are going to miss that harmonica very much. Charles W. Minton (Oklahoma City, OK) July 12, 2003. Hlfcirm at sbcglobal.net.

. . . Dear Janice, John Marty, Andrew, Katie and Betty:
My deepest sympathy is extended to each of you on the passing of your father and grandfather. My contact with Bob through the years was very infrequent but I always knew him to be a good person. My only wish is that we could have lived closer to one another. I enjoyed tremendously being with him at the Leavelle family reunion at Red River, NM. I had never had the opportunity to visit with him as I got to do there. Thanks from bringing him! I appreciated the words that Marty wrote about this Dad that he was doing what he wanted to do when he attended the Red River union as he loved to be with his family.
God Bless! With love,
