EX-UT LEGAL COUNSEL JOHN C. BAUGH DIES
Knoxville News-Sentinel, The (TN) - Friday, September 23, 1994.
John C. Baugh , the University of Tennessee's chief legal counsel and secretary to the UT board of trustees from 1965 to 1975, died Wednesday night. He was 81.
Mr. Baugh worked closely with UT Presidents Andy Holt and Edward J. Boling during the period of the UT physical plant expansion and reorganization of the university into a multi-campus system.
"The university profited from John's devotion, insight and willingness to stand for things really important to the university," said UT President Joe Johnson, who served with Mr. Baugh on the Holt and Boling staffs. "John was personable and persistent, and he always placed UT first in whatever he did."
A native of Mineral Bluff, Ga., Mr. Baugh attended Carson-Newman College but earned his bachelor's and law degrees from UT. He practiced law in Knoxville from 1937 to 1942, during which time he also taught business law at UT.
Mr. Baugh served in the Navy in World War II and retained his commission in the Naval Reserves after the war. He retired with the rank of captain.
Mr. Baugh joined the UT College of Law faculty in 1946 and a year later became a UT staff attorney, a position he held until being named chief legal counsel in 1965. He continued to teach law through 1964.
Mr. Baugh is survived by his wife, Neolene, and three children, Tommy of Knoxville, Cathy (Mrs. Robert) Greenberg of Knoxville and Julie Shu of Birmingham, Ala.; and seven grandchildren and one great-grandchild.
Graveside services will be held at 10:30 a.m. Saturday at Highland Memorial Cemetery in Knoxville. Rose-Highland Mortuary is in charge. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that contributions be made to the John C. Baugh Memorial Scholarship Fund in the UT College of Law.
