Fondest memory:

“My fondest memories are of a fellow student, Polly Jean Torti, who has been my wife for almost 63 years and who has had a profound influence on my career and all aspects of my life.”

U of M’s legacy:

“In its earliest days, the University of Memphis provided a well-rounded educational experience to many students, including myself, who could not have afforded to attend a larger, university. From a modest beginning, the University has grown with the city and the needs of the people in a very broad area to become a nationally recognized research university. It attracts a diversity of cultures that enhances the experience of every student. It seems to me that the University has been a model of practical growth to meet changing circumstances and opportunities, yet not departing from its appeal to a broad cross-section of society.”
