A girl I knew liked Howard's class, so i took it too, and then the grad level seminar. I ran into him in Emil's, etc., but lost contact. I wanted to take Greek--not then offered summers, but Whallon was against it (his actual quote was: "You're too old to learn new things"). I wrested the CIC papers away, sure the admin. would quash it. Surprise! Howard was the admin. guy and signed off, posthaste.

Chicago was lovely that summer: class in the morning, homework after, then sprint for the train to the Cubbies. Heavenly work, Howard: the Northwestern chair signed me in, and i caught a goof in his 2nd ed., just before it came out. Divine mojo?

Howard and I were colleagues and arrived at MSU about the same time. He was a thoughtful conscientious man who aimed to do the right thing--one of those rare honorable men.
