History

On December 2, 1843, the Memphis Annual Conference of the Methodist Church received a charter from the General Assembly of the State of Tennessee authorizing the establishment of a college for women to be known as the Memphis Conference Female Institution (MCFI). Almost without interruption this institution served West Tennessee with an educational program for women that was widely recognized. In November 1921, the Memphis Annual Conference in Session at McKenzie, Tennessee voted to establish a coeducational institution of higher learning. Accordingly, the MCFI charter was amended on January 3, 1923 providing for coeducation, and the name was changed to Lambuth College in honor of the pioneer Methodist missionary bishop, Rev. Walter R. Lambuth, M.D.


The MCFI property, consisting of five acres on East Chester Street, was sold and the present site on Lambuth Boulevard was purchased. The administration/classroom building, now known as Varnell-Jones Hall, was erected in 1934-24. Dr. Richard E. Womack was elected president of Lambuth College on May 12, 1924, and accepted the College's first coeducational class on September 10 of the same year. Dr. Womack served as president until September 1952, at which time he resigned and was elected president-emeritus.


Dr. Luther L. Gobbel was elected president of Lambuth, and assumed his duties on October 12, 1952. In June 1962, Dr. Gobbel retired. Dr. James E. Wilder, Jr. assumed the duties of the presidency of Lambuth on July 1, 1962, and served until June 1, 1980, at which time he became chancellor of the College. Dr. Wilder retired in December 1981. Dr. Harry W. Gilmer assumed the presidency of Lambuth College on June 1, 1980. He resigned in October 1986, and Dr. Hugh A. Latimer served as interim president until June 1987. Dr. Thomas F. Boyd assumed the presidency on June 2, 1987. On July 1, 1991, Lambuth College became Lambuth University. Dr. Boyd resigned in February 1996. Dr. Joseph R. Thornton, III, who was Vice President of Church Relations and University Chaplain, served as interim president until January 1997. W. Ellis Arnold was elected president of Lambuth in November 1996, and he assumed his duties on January 1, 1997. Dr. R. Fred Zuker was inaugurated as Lambuth University's seventh president on April 2, 2005.


On March 20, 2007, Lambuth University (Tenn.) defeated TranSouth Athletic Conference rival Cumberland University (Tenn.) 63-50 to win the first NAIA title in program history at the 27th Annual NAIA Division I Women's Basketball Championship at Oman Arena.


It was the first NAIA Division I Women's Basketball championship game since 1988 in which both participants were playing in the title game for the first time. Lambuth, seeded fifth in the tournament bracket, is the lowest-seeded champion since the NAIA implemented bracketed quarters in 2003, and the Eagles are just the fourth different team to claim a title over the past 14 seasons, and they set up the surprising title game matchup with a semifinal win over Union (Tenn.), which had won the previous two titles. Southern Nazarene (Okla.) won six titles during the span, while Oklahoma City won four straight titles from 1999-2002.


Lambuth University, led by Coach Joe Reints (2007 NAIA Coach of the Year), finishes the season 27-9 overall after claiming the NAIA crown after a four-year absence from the national tournament. In four previous appearances from 1999-2002, Lambuth was eliminated three times in the second round and exited once in the first round. Lambuth player Reggie Maddox was named the Tournament's MVP and Lambuth's Dee Preyer made the All-Tournament Second Team.
