CALDWELL

William

Addison

 

William Addison "Bill" Caldwell, nephew and namesake of the first student to enroll at Virginia Tech, died Nov. 12 at Richfield Nursing Center in Salem. He was 90 years old.
Caldwell, a native of Radford, spurred research into the first student’s life when he donated the Bible of his uncle, who was called "Add," to Special Collections. Later, he worked to get the university to name the second-floor lounge in Johnston Student Center after Add and commissioned his own nephew, a New York artist, to paint the watercolor portrait of Add that now hangs in the Caldwell lounge. The lounge was dedicated on March 19, 1993.
Bill Caldwell also donated a photograph of the first student as an adult and encouraged another relative to donate one of Add’s report cards to Special Collections. Additionally, he put a Virginia Tech writer who was researching Add’s life into contact with relatives who remembered the first student, leading to the discovery and donation of a letter written by Add.
The research revealed that then-16-year-old Add Caldwell walked with his older brother, Milton, as much as 38 miles from his home in the Sinking Creek community of Craig County to register at Virginia Tech, then called Virginia Agricultural and Mechanical College, on Oct. 1, 1872. Mic also registered but never graduated. Add spent four years at the school, earning a certificate in agriculture with the second graduating class in 1876. He worked as a schoolteacher, clerk, and salesman before his death in 1910. He was buried in the Caldwell family cemetery in Radford, where his family had moved after he left home.
On Oct. 1, 1997, Bill Caldwell was the university’s special guest at the ceremony to dedicate a state historical marker about his uncle. The event, held in Craig County, marked the 125th anniversary of the day his uncle registered at Virginia Tech.
Bill Caldwell was a Radford realtor and a founding partner in the Giesen-Caldwell Real Estate Agency. As executive secretary of the Chamber of Commerce, he was instrumental in bringing Inland Motors to Radford.
Funeral services were held on Nov. 16 at DeVilbiss Funeral Home in Radford. Interment followed in the Caldwell family cemetery.

Thomas

M.

 

Sunday February 10, 1974
Thomas M. COMBITHS Jr., 54 year-old Pulaski insurance agent, died unexpectedly Saturday afternoon while on a skiing trip at the Massanutten ski resort near Harrisonburg
Dr. S.L. Beyers, Rockingham County coroner, attributed the death to a heart attack.
COMBITHS reportedly suffered the attack while skiing and was rushed to Rockingham Memorial Hospital shortly after 2 p.m.
COMBITHS was the son of Mrs. Dess COMBITHS woman's editor of The Southwest Times. His father is deceased.
COMBITHS was a native of Pulaski, a graduate of Pulaski High School and Rutgers University, and a veteran of the U.S. Navy.
He was vice president of the Pulaski County Chamber of Commerce and a past president of the Pulaski Rotary Club.
COMBITHS late last year was named to the Hall of Fame of the Equitable Life Assurance Society. The award was in' recognition of placing, $1 million of life insurance in force annually for 10 years.
He also held the Chartered Life Underwriter designation, the highest professional designation in the life insurance industry.
In addition to his mother, he is survived by his wife, the former Mary Currin ESKERIDGE; a daughter, Mrs., Jerry A. ROGERS of Encinitis Calif,; three sons, Thomas M. III of the U.S. Navy stationed in Spain, Allen of Anaheim, Calif., and Truman, a student at Emory & Henry College; and one granddaughter.
Stevens Funeral Home is in, charge of arrangements.

February 12, 1974
Tom COMBITHS was a very special kind of person. In an era that has become impersonal, he remained the Southern gentleman. In an age where family ties are breaking down his, remained strong. In a business world where the premium is or aggressiveness, he was patient and understanding Tom COMBITHSs was particularly special to this newspaper in that his mother, Dess COMBITHS, is the woman's editor.
Thus it was that Tom drove his mother to and from work six days a week-becoming a familiar face at The Times office and a friend to those who were even the most casual acquaintances. It was a combination of his personal warmth and knowledge that took him to the top in many fields I . In life insurance sales, he was one of the very best in the country. Civic affairs found him in such roles as Boy Scout leader, president of the Rotary Club, and vice-president of the Chamber of Commerce.
He was a graduate of one of the best schools in the east, Rutgers University, and gained the rank of Lieutenant in the U.S. Navy. A footballer in his school and college days, he became an avid skier in later years - and again, he excelled. But his achievements aside, Tom COMBITHS will be remembered even more as a good citizen an good friend. A very special kind of person.
