Note

Joel Hitt was heavily influenced by Dr. William Herschel Bruce, who was a mathematician and educator in Texas. Dr. Bruce was probably influential in getting Joel to move to Athens to teach since Dr . Bruce was there in a supervisory capacity.

See <a href="http://www.rhitt.com/genealogy/jrh.pdf">www.rhitt.com/genealogy/jrh.pdf</a> for additional details and anecdotes about Joel Hitt. This was written by Lucile Hitt Hollingsworth around 197 2, with editing and corrections by L. Richard Hitt.
