(031288) Compton, Carl C. The Morning Cometh: 45 Years With Anatolia College. New Rochelle, NY: Aristide D. Caratzas, 1986. 1st Edition. Hardcover. 8vo. 116 pages. Fine in Fine DJ. It was only at the insistence of others that Carl Compton, president of Anatolia College from 1950-58 and associated with the school since 1913, wrote a volume of memoirs in the final years of his long life. It was published in 1986, in the school's centennial year. Compton was born and raised in Iowa. When he arrived in 1913, Anatolia was flourishing, and Compton, handsome, athletic and likeable, adjusted well to school life. But he happened to arrive at the point in history when the Ottoman empire was in its death throes. Turkish nationalism was ascendant, and World War I was about to break out. Clouds gathered quickly, and in June 1915 the storm broke over Merzifon. Deportations and massacres of Armenians began. Someone was needed to go overland to Constantinople to report on conditions and to bring back money. Compton volunteered for the dangerous mission. On his return trip, with many gold pieces strapped to his body under his clothing, he narrowly escaped mayhem at the hands of a band of ruffians met on a lonely road. ISBN: 0892414227 (Anatolia College, Turkey, Greece, Faculty, Biography)
