Elsewhere on the web site you will see the story of Trustee and class agent Roger Billings’ informational talk on the 16th President of the United States, Abraham Lincoln. Roger is an expert on Lincoln. In fact, he has more books on Lincoln than I own. (OK, he only needed 7 books, I realize that!)
Roger’s Chapel Talk was a good one, no doubt. Full of information about an interesting period in our nation’s history. That’s especially true, I think, given the new President of the United States.
There was a little extra pressure on Roger I think, or at least there would have been if I were in his position. You see, two legends of the Wabash faculty were in attendance…none other than Vic Powell and Joe O’Rourke, both speech professors of historic stature (photo on right).
Roger passed with flying colors, I’m told!
