We met in 1967. Bill was a junior and Mary was a freshman and our first date was an “arranged” blind date the first week of “rat week” for Mary! Dr. Chapman was Mary’s academic advisor and for many years repeated the slightly exaggerated story that when he asked her what degree she wanted to pursue at PC she replied. “MRS degree”- which Mary has always claimed were words she never spoke! We were married in 1969 and have been married for 47 years. Our life together started at PC and we love coming back each fall to reunite with dear friends and reliving those wonderful memories.
