MSU Home :: Young, Allie
A statesman, leader and benefactor, he was instrumental in getting a state institution located in Morehead, as well as securing funds for its early development. Born in Fleming County, he began his fight for the school in 1923 during his first term as a Kentucky state senator. He was appointed as one of the original members of the Board of Regents and continued to serve until his death. At his first meeting, he offered to loan the school any sum up to $10,000 without interest to pay expenses for the remainder of the year. Allie Young Hall, formerly a girls’ residence hall and now an office building, bears his name.
