Frank L. McVey and the University of Kentucky

McVey had to leave Maxwell Place despte the many memories the place held for him. Frances McVey established Maxwell Place as a venue for Lexington–s social and intellectual life. Frank McVey often discussed with Frances how his time would be spent as president emeritus as he wanted to write and even expressed intentions of moving to either Florida or California. He, however, preferred to remain closer to his friends and family, so he bought a lot on Shady Lane. McVey was very interested in constructing plans for his new home. In spite of architectural disputes, McVey's family was able to enjoy the new home. At this point McVey offered just a little assistance to the temporary president, so he taught an agricultural economics class and he and his wife began to travel. This chapter looks into McVey's activities as he entered retirement.
