A memory submitted by James Cornelius, Class of 1977

My favorite professor was Frank Young, Insurance, Cox School of Business. I took every class he taught because he made so interesting the normally dry subject of insurance. He had a practical and oftentimes humorous approach to the curriculum which kept the students alert and interested in the subject matter.

His real life examples of insurance claims and risk management was very practical. Frank actually was very instrumental in getting me my first job after graduating. I have been in the insurance industry for 36 years and almost every day I look back on some of Frank’s practical teachings in running my insurance agency.

What a great asset Frank was to SMU.
