James Union Building

About the Clayton L. James Union Building

In recognition of his forty-eight years of service to education in Tennessee. Thirty - six years of his distinguished career as an educator were devoted to this institution where he, for a six-year period, served as the first Dean of Students and for the remainder of his tenure as a scholarly and innovative classroom teacher. Although superbly proficient in all of the social science disciplines, his most enduring and endearing fame came as a matchless preceptor in Sociology. His artistry in teaching, compassion, and humanity left an incredible imprint on literally hundreds of University students.
