Like John Muldoon, I was a 22 year old freshman. I wonder what put Muldoon on his 'fast track.' Was it the military like myself? Maybe the Merchant Marine. Mining down in South America. Who knows.
In some ways this Fall means more to me than my graduation from college. It will be 30 years ago this September I started my freshman year. And I remember those last words of a story written by an alum of John's college.
"So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past."
The Great Gatsby
