Biographical Note

William Franklin Day was both a student and teacher of Pikeville College. Day was born August 7, 1911 in Hindman, Kentucky, where his mother was a teacher. She was part of the Hindman Settlement School, and one of the women that came from outside of the mountain region to teach, often called “quare women,” taken from a book of the same title by Lucy Furman.

After graduating from the Pikeville College Academy in 1929, Day received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees from Duke University in Durham, North Carolina. He majored in chemistry with minors in physics and mathematics. In 1942, he began teaching Chemistry at Pikeville College, and continued to teach until 1973. Among his hobbies were photography and collecting phonograph records. His photographs can be found throughout the Pikeville College image collection. He passed away on October 5, 1996.
