Newspaperman and Techite Null Adams organized the Memphis
Quill and Scroll that so many Techites belonged to. Others in
his extended family also attended Tech: Carolyn Tucker (Tech
'50) and Nancy Tucker (Tech '50), and nephew Bill Tucker (Tech '57).
One fact in his story is not quite correct - the first sentence, "It
was Memphis' first high school". Actually Memphis' first high
school was Memphis High School and it was originally located in the
old Market Street School Building at 3rd and Market. The Board
of Education built "this castle" on Poplar exclusively for Memphis
High School in 1898 and that school remained in this building until
June of 1911. In September of 1911, the new Memphis Vocational
School, which evolved into Tech, opened in this same building.
