MSU Home :: Button, Frank
He first came to Morehead in 1887 to help his mother found the Christian Normal School. He left to complete his education and returned to Morehead as the first president of the Morehead State Normal School in 1923. He described that first year as full of struggles with no water supply, no sewer system and knee-deep mud in the streets; survival was only possible because of the active and efficient involvement of the Board of Regents. He continued in this capacity until his retirement in 1929. Button Auditorium was named in his honor. His relationship with the school lasted nearly 30 years.
