An avid lover of music, poetry. golf. and travel, Barnett and his wife, Hope, reside at 3 Meadowcrest Drive, Parkersburg. He is retired from his law career as counsel for Pennzoil United. Inc. His daughter. Rebecca. and son. Brooks. reside in New Haven. Conn. He taught four years in Gilmer and Ritchie County schools, but with his uncle's (a lawyer) and his father's support, he left the teaching profession to pursue a J.D. degree at West Virginia Universtiy where he was graduated in 1933. Fred states that his desire for an AB from GSC is born of 'emotionalism. not pragmatism - another bond to bind me to my Alma Mater." When asked why he wrote the Alma Mater, he replied that he believed the school to be unique so he felt it should have an original Alma Mater {not a copy of something else.) He talks with fondness of the days when "he knew everyone, everyone knew him, the school was small and a fine temple of leaning." He insists the discipline was strict in those days, but the college was the 'center of intellectualism and social grace, with almost a family-like atmosphere.' Students had to find their own entertainment even in those days, so Fred organized a dance band in 1922. He and Evelyn {Beall) White combined on choreography, music and arrange- ments and presented live entertain- ment for the area. Mr. Barnett is a member of the First Baptist Church of Parkersburg. Masonic and Elks Lodges. Parkersburg Country Club. Virginia's Senior Golf Association; Wood County Bar Association. West Virginia State Bar; American Bar Association: and WV Bar Association. He has served as official representative of the State of WV on the Interstate Oil Compact Commission. and as president of Little Kanawhg Regional Council. In 1974, he served Glenville State College as Parade Marshal for Homecoming and in 1974 he delivered a tribute to Mrs. Bessie Boyd Bell Scott at the Pickens Hall Dedication. He is a member of the Advisory Board of GSC and will deliver greetings from the Board during Commencement exercises this Spring. It is a unique distinction that marks Mr. Fred Barnett's love for Glenville and a more loyal alumnus cannot be found than the gentleman who played his own composition on the piano May 1 as banquet attenders sangs the lovely words he penned on a train trip in early '37. The trip 'back home' is more dear now since Fred has spent the winter recuperating from an automobile accident suffered on his return trip from the Pioneer's last home football game. and you can bet the alumni reunion was complete when this 'old-prospective grad' returned to big beloved 'Alma Mater.'
