A memory submitted by Dr. Robert Esch, Class of 1961

Dr. Ima Herron was my favorite professor. She kept up with me as my career launched.

One day in class a wag asked, “Miss Herron, how long are we supposed to be reading Moby Dick?” She promptly replied, “Why Mr. Pierce, I’ve been reading Moby Dick all my life!” He said to those listening, but quietly, “Well, I hope it doesn’t take me that long.”
