By Jerry Armor,Wayne Flynt

while reformer Elizabeth Johnston walked one of the convicts in an Alabama criminal mining camp, she was once shocked to work out teenage boys operating along hardened criminals. She vowed to take away young children from such wretched stipulations via setting up a house for wayward boys. With the aid of ladies around the nation, she persuaded the legislature to set up the Alabama Boys' business university in 1900. After numerous tough years, Johnston and her all-female board employed a tender Tennessee couple, David and Katherine Weakley, as superintendent and matron. United of their Christian religion, their love for the lads, and a few simple rules on how the lads may be molded into males, Johnston and the Weakleys worked jointly for many years to make the college one of many nation's top-rated associations of its sort. a house for Wayward Boys is the inspiring tale of the varsity, its leaders, and the lads who lived there.
