With the announcement of Auburn's Marisa Grimes being selected as the Olympic Torchbearer in London.
I now find myself in the unique position of knowing two ladies at the Olympics in London.
In 1955, I rowed in the heavyweight rowing crew at University of Pennsylvania. We were the best in the world that year.
When I returned,years later, as an alumni, I was surprised to find women at the boathouse.
No,they were NOT cheerleaders but the new Penn Womens Crew.…Continue

When an event such as the tragedy of Ed Christian and Ladarious Phillips occurs, all of the Auburn Family feels the effects. We, at a distance, will all be with you during the Candlelight Service on Thursday evening. It is fortunate that "events" like this are rare. May God bless those who have to suffer the grief at this time for we DO know that His healing will follow. May the time of grief be only as long as needed to heal all of us!

Yesterday,Dick Clark passed away. "American Bandstand" was part of the scene in Philadelphia in the 1950's. Televisions were on all over town. Who would Dick have on the show today? Fraternity pledges from the local colleges could be seen wearing their unusual attire--dark grey suits,white shirts and rep ties. I cannot remember any of the Sororities sending their pledges but those dark grey suits really stood out. Quite a few dates were arranged with older high school "ladies" and…Continue

Now that Auburn Family has the unique capability to show The Corner live at any part of the day or night,there are ways to add to the enjoyment. How about all of the present fraternity brothers and/or sisters of a fraternity getting together at a fixed time of day to wish their alumni the best? All it might take is getting all of that particular alumni to know what the proper time would be long before the actual event. You might even have printed signs welcoming your alumni/ae. This…Continue

I just got off the phone with one of my closest friends who had stayed "out of touch" because he was and had been hurting for some time. "I didn't want to make you feel as bad as I am feeling." was his comment. It seems that somehow today we only want to pass on the good stories with the happiest of endings. Our closest friendships were created sharing the best of both worlds. Why then do we turn off or forget the best of these past times? You and I are NEVER alone. Let's be able to share…Continue

As i first arrive each day on these pages, I see Toomers Corner. I can make it "take motion" by merely using my mouse. Instantly,memories of the past are recalled with many good times, many friends, fellow students and faculty friends. As I screen down the page,I can catch new videos and new blogs. I can keep up on what's happening every day. The feelings of the students and their dreams. But,I can also screen down to the left side and hear the words of Harvey Updike. There no longer is…Continue

In this industrial age, things sometimes get overly complicated. There never seems to be a simple solution to the day to day problems that confront us. Maybe, we need to get back to our farming roots. A good farmer knows that if you plant corn,you will grow corn. Never can you plant corn and get wheat. As that good farmer you know that you will only ever get whatever you planted. You can't change the harvest. Be careful of what you plant in life!

It is great to read about the various internships Auburn students choose. How often does the incoming freshman wonder about what field they wish to pursue? You can read all you want about a field of endeavor and talk to any number of alumni or faculty who work or have worked in the field. Each of these,just sort of by necessity,adds some bias to the "true picture." What ever field you DO choose,you WILL benefit from time right there doing the every day tasks that make up that particular…Continue
