Dr. Barney McGrath was one of the main reasons I attended SMU. He answered a letter that I wrote the school asking about admission with “We’d LOVE for you to come to SMU” with a personal invitation for a school tour and lunch afterwards. It was a big deal to me at the time, and I will always remember getting that letter from him. Later, I took several of his classes and remember them with great fondness in preparing me for a career in Radio/TV. Plus, how can you not like a guy whose name is Barney!
