Amy and Richard R. Lyman

BY Academy (High School or Collegiate?) Class of 1891. Amy Brown. Faculty & Staff. Amy Brown, Training School, 1888-1894. She married Richard R. Lyman, BYA High School Class of 1889, BYA Collegiate Class of 1891. Amy Brown appears in a photo of the first faculty to serve under Principal Benjamin Cluff in 1892. ~ ~ ~ ~ Amy Brown Lyman was born in Pleasant Grove on Feb. 7, 1872, and died in Salt Lake City on Dec. 5, 1959. She was the eighth General Relief Society president, serving from 1940-1945. She also directed the Relief Society's social services department and served in various welfare agencies through both World Wars and the Great Depression. An author and a teacher, she collected historical documents and kept minutes for the Relief Society. She served in the Utah Legislature from 1923-1924. ~ ~ ~ ~ BIOGRAPHY: Amy Cassandra Brown was born February 7, 1872, in Pleasant Grove, Utah. Her parents are John Brown and Margaret Zimmerman Brown. Amy grew up to serve as General Relief Society President during a changing world, where she would influence the women of the LDS Church during World War I, the Great Depression, and World War II. There was much disease and poor medical care during Amy’s youth; many loved ones died, or became invalid because of this, including Amy’s mother. Her mother Margaret received improper care while giving childbirth, and suffered ill effects the rest of her life. Because of this, she read medical books and learned how to treat everyone in their small town. Margaret’s determination influenced Amy to want better care for the individual. Amy learned to love books through her father, John. She attended Brigham Young Academy, where she formed a close association with Karl Maeser, Principal of the Academy, because she lived with his family for a time. She met her husband, Richard Lyman, at school. She continued her studies and taught while Richard attended graduate school in Michigan where no married students were allowed. Finally, they married and moved to Chicago, Illinois for continued schooling. While there, Amy took a sociology class and began volunteering at Hull House. She formed a friendship for life with its founder, Jane Addams. Social problems became Amy’s life focus from this time forward. After finishing Richard’s schooling in Ithaca, New York, they moved back to Salt Lake City. A short time later, she was called to serve on the Relief Society Board where she was introduced to Bathsheba W. Smith, a member of the original Relief Society, and Emmeline B. Wells, noted for her long work with the Women’s Exponent publication. Amy would become the bridge between the changing generations of Relief Society. It was Amy who organized the offices of the Relief Society with more staff, improved reporting procedures, and compiling the records of the Relief Society history. She was also involved with creating the first lesson plans that would be published in the Relief Society Bulletin, and later the Magazine, serving as an editor for a few years. She felt education lessons and handicrafts would uplift the soul and add meaning to a woman’s life during these hard times. During the world wars, Amy was there with her expertise in social welfare, teaching and training. She stated, “Prevention of poverty, disease, and crime is much better and much cheaper than relief or cure. Modern welfare calls for getting at the very roots of the trouble. The suggestive steps in family welfare are relief of existing distress, prevention of new distress, and the raising of human life to its highest level.” She believed Relief Society was at the heart of relieving human suffering. Called by President Joseph F. Smith, Amy served as the first director of the Church’s newly formed social welfare department. She also served in the Utah Legislature, furthering her humanitarian social action. It is thanks to her that there is a Mental Hospital in Provo, and a mentally handicapped training school in American Fork. Her husband, Richard R. Lyman, was called to serve in the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles while Amy was serving as General Relief Society secretary. While serving as a counselor to Louise Y. Robison, Richard was called to preside over the European Mission, and she was set apart to serve the women and children throughout the mission. Impending war brought them home early, in 1938. In 1940, she was called as Relief Society president. In 1943, personal tragedy touched Amy’s life when it was discovered that Richard had a second wife, and was illegally trying to live the law of polygamy. He was excommunicated immediately. She struggled through her responsibilities as president, but after serving barely five years, she asked to be released. Here is the amazing thing: their marriage survived. They worked through it and Richard was eventually rebaptized and his priesthood was restored to him after he died. It is thanks to Amy Lyman that the LDS Church has a Family and Social Services department, that it has such a close association with the Red Cross, and that Welfare Services has the woman’s touch. Amy Brown Lyman provides a wonderful example of endurance through hardship, based upon the strength of her individual testimony. [Source: Elect Ladies and Women of Covenant]

Kay and Marilee Campbell

Faculty & Staff. Principal of the BYU Laboratory School (Elementary) through 1968. OBITUARY: Milo Kay Campbell, 71, passed away in Provo, Utah on April 19, 2004. He was born on September 4, 1932 in Richfield, Utah to Milo Golden and Alporta Allen Campbell. He married Marilee Beard on September 12, 1959 in the St. George Temple. His family lived in Kingston, Utah and various rural areas before moving to the Roosevelt area (Ioka) where he finished high school. He served in the armed forces in Germany during the Korean War and later served as a missionary in the North German Mission. He attended Dixie College and Brigham Young University, where he graduated with Bachelors and Masters degrees. He earned a Doctorate from Wayne State University in Detroit, Michigan in 1972. A lifelong educator, his career began as an elementary school teacher and he later served as a principal of a rural school in Southern Utah. He was Principal of the Brigham Young University Laboratory School (Elementary). In 1968, he became a faculty member in the Education Department at BYU and then later became a professor in that same department. He specialized in Multi-Cultural and Rural Education. His professional achievements were varied and extensive and include a number of publications, awards and national honors. He was a faithful member of the LDS church, serving in many capacities; Bishop, counselor to two Bishops, Stake High Council, and with the General Church Correlation Committee; as well as many other callings. He was a devoted parent and grandparent, who was willing to make any sacrifice for his family's well-being. A fine athlete, he spent much of his life avidly playing racquetball and basketball. For the past twenty five years, his love of basketball was centered around his friends of the faculty and staff group who played together three times a week. These friends saved his life, four years ago, after he collapsed on the court but he chose to be released from this life as he was again surrounded by these friends who made a valiant effort to minister to him after another collapse. He felt that his life had been a good one.

Lessons That Last—Eternally: Memories of the Old BYU Education Building. By Debbie M. Naegle
To an uninformed observer, the old BYU Education Building could look like Sleeping Beauty's vegetation-overrun castle, with everyone still soundly asleep inside. At first glance the building looked to me like it contained a myriad of dark shadows and an equal number of scary corners. I didn't foresee the deep insights and powerful lessons I would experience inside those 18th-century, brick, ivy-grown walls.

June Carlisle, a crafter of powerful, insightful, and lasting lessons, taught within those aging walls. I had her for Education 200, an education exploratory course. We were meeting that day in the centenary building in a room that looked like a theater, complete with squeaky wooden chairs bolted to the floor, and a stage. Her lesson centered on role-playing technique, and its application to teaching children problem-solving skills. She presented us with a variety of scenarios where a child might encounter a problem involving another child, parent, or teacher. We then assumed the role of the child or another adult, acting out a resolution to the conflict. The class became totally absorbed in the whole process.

The outcomes of those role-plays escape my memory, but another, more powerful lesson taught that day doesn't. Having become fascinated with the technique, I purposefully lingered after class to discuss it more in-depth with Sister Carlisle.

I'm sure she offered elaboration on her lesson, but the other lesson she taught during that encounter is what still remains. With the coolness of the room surrounding me, she began her teaching.

"Don't be an old maid, like me," she expounded. "It's much too lonely."

She went on to recount her tragic love life, having been engaged twice, but losing both future husbands to the devastation of the World War. Both died, either in battle or some other related way. I can't recall the details she shared, only that she opened up her soul.

During the course of her service as a member of the Primary General Board, Sister Carlisle further explained, she had developed a close friendship with President Harold B. Lee. Through experiences that included insights from him, she knew God loved her and had purposes for her. The extension on the role-playing lesson may have been lost, but I was sure that one of her obvious purposes was to become our beloved teacher.

I took another wonderful class from her — Children's Literature. Later on, in the summer, a group of us students went to visit her. Her home, as we had imagined, contained stacks of books and mementos from her many students, both old and young. We all enjoyed lunch together in the park that day.

The next year I left BYU to serve a church mission in Southern Argentina. I applied the questioning techniques she had taught us. I also remembered the note she had tucked into my completed poetry file:

"Your illustrations are beautiful. You are a chosen daughter of God. It looks like an A in the class.''

Upon returning from my mission, I looked for Sister Carlisle. She had, in the course of my year-and-a-half absence, developed some health problems and could no longer teach. I missed her but felt sure she had retired to the care of her loving extended family, and to the stacks of her children's books she taught us to love.

Any demolition company can clear out the bricks, the moss, and the cone-topped towers of the old Education Building, but it would be impossible to destroy the carefully placed blocks of building Sister Carlisle structured in our souls during our class times in that charitable fortress of learning.
