Mixsonian

 THE MIXON-MIXSON FAMILY

Family life was most personal to Founder Mixson, and occupied a place of great importance. He is survived by his wife of 50 years, the former Elizabeth Howell McCarthy. Two sons carry the Mixson name. One is in the business world, Lawrence Harry Mixson, Jr., president of Mixson Seed Company, Inc. The other is Col. Marion Clark Mixson, Vice-Wing Commander, SAC, United States Air Force.

Religion was paramount to Mixson, and no conversation in excess of a few seconds was complete without his great Christian faith being expressed. Christened into St. John's Evangelical Lutheran Church, he later transferred to the First Scots Presbyterian Church.

He always took singular pride in the knowledge that our Fraternity was "Founded on the banner of Jesus Christ," and that his religious background was not narrow but encompassed within its three Founders, the Roman Catholic, Presbyterian and Lutheran faiths.

Any recording, of his memoriam must ultimately rest with remembrances of individuals as recorded by one person. This in itself becomes an idiosyncrasy, for it appears that Harry Mixson was all things to all People. To this writer

"he was a man, take him for all in all,

I shall not look upon his like again" (Hamlet).
