Obituary for Dr. Nell Pauline Logan

The Giles Free Press 23 Sep 2004

Logan, Nell Pauline 23 Mar 1913 19 Sep 2004

Dr. Nell Pauline Logan, 91, died Sept. 19, 2004, at The Pines in Davidson, N.C.

Dr. Logan was born on Easter Sunday, March 23, 1913, in Birmingham, Ala., to the late Charles Sumpter and Effie Waters Logan.

When she was four years, following the death of her mother, the family, including her father and three brothers, moved to Prospect Station in Giles County, where she lived until she entered the University of Tennessee at Knoxville. She graduated from UT in 1935 with a bachelor of science degree in home economics and then served as a vocational home economics teacher in Tennessee secondary schools from 1935-43.

She returned to UT for graduate school and earned her master's degree in 1948. She was an assistant professor of Home Economics from 1948-54. From 1954-55, she was associate professor and head of Home Economics Education at the University of North Carolina Women's College (Greensboro).

In 1955, Dr. Logan became a member of the first team with the UT/India Contract for the development and improvement of home science in the women's colleges in India. She served two years in this capacity, working out of Madras, India. During her time in India, the country and its people captivated her, and she always had a special place in her heart for Indian culture.

After the time in India, Dr. Logan returned to UT, where she earned her doctorate in education in 1960. She taught at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater from 1960 until 1963, when she returned to UT, where she served as professor and head of Home Economics Education until her retirement in 1980.

During her teaching career, she earned many academic honors and was a member of several professional and academic associations. She served on a wide range of committees at both the local and national level. She was devoted to the education of young people and most enjoyed teaching prospective teachers how to teach. She was an active participant in curriculum development and implementation throughout her career. Many teachers in Tennessee, and in other states as well, will remember her fondly.

Dr. Logan was a lifelong learner. An avid reader, she studied a wide range of topics in her retirement years. She loved politics as well as sports, particularly at the college level and particularly at UT, where for many years she sat on the 50-yard line during football season and at mid-court during basketball season. Dr. Logan moved from Knoxville to The Pines at Davidson in North Carolina in 1995, where she made many friends and participated actively in the retirement community.

A family service will be held at the grave site in Prospect, where she will be buried alongside her father.

Harry and Bryant Company Funeral Directors is in charge of arrangements.

Memorials may be made to Prospect United Methodist Church, Box 145, Prospect, Tenn. 38477.

Survivors include her brother, Joe M. Logan of Charlotte, N.C.; six nieces, one nephew, seven great-nieces, three great-nephews, and three great-great-nieces.
