Helen Draper Ayer of Massachusetts and later of California created a trust fund, The Draper Foundation, in memory of her Kentucky-born mother, Mrs. Jessie Preston Draper. She gave Berea $200,000 from this fund with the stipulation the money should be used to aid in educating students from Appalachia. Other gifts, including $50,000 given in memory of Henry C. Munger by his sister, brought the total to $340,000, with which this colonial-style structure was built in 1938 (modeled after Independence Hall in Philadelphia). It contains 24 classrooms and offices for teachers, reading rooms, campus ministry and the audio-visual aids department. In June 2000, renovation began on the Draper Building tower for the installation of a 56-bell Carillon.

From the early days of Caney School, now Alice Lloyd College, The Purpose Road Philosophy was taught by Alice Lloyd and June Buchanan.

The Purpose Road

It was originally created by George Herbert Palmer, a professor at Harvard University. Our founders’ burning desire was that each student would catch a vision of his or her purpose which would eventually manifest itself in world service. Today, the ideals of The Purpose Road Philosophy permeate the educational process at Alice Lloyd College. All students work either on campus or in community outreach positions off-campus. Good character is emphasized and supported. The Purpose Road Philosophy manual includes the following passage: By an inexorable law,What we expect tends to come to us.Facing life in the right way, we must haveA PurposeA GoalA Vision.Then hold the thought and work toward it.It will come as dawns the day.
