Dear Bill and Stoddard family,
Your family has always been remembered . When I got the Lafayette paper I read about the passing of your father. I was a classmate of yours at Pen Argyl Bill. My sympathies to you all .
Please come to the next reunion Bill! We all would love to see you! So many wonderful memories of you!
May your father be at peace. He lived a long fulfilled life.

I had the honor and pleasure of having Professor Stoddard for two semesters of Calculus during my tenure at Lafayette College ('78-'79). Although I cannot "differentiate" specific idiosyncrasies among most of my college professors, I can remember a few endearing things about Prof. Stoddard: He always took attendance prior to every class, and called out the female classmates as "Miss ........", but referred to the males only by their last names. He had a great, dry sense of New England humor as I recall, and I'll never forget the first time I heard him say to the engineers in the class (I was one, so I listened intently to any advice provided by my profs), "Don't put all your ergs in one gasket!" Lovely man, clearly dedicated to his calling. May he rest in peace.
