A memory submitted by Karen Von Der Bruegge, Class of 1975

Dr. William Stallcup and his wife. It was a freshman seminar class on genetics. There were only 6 of us in the class. We met at the Stallcup’s home which was walking distance from campus. Often Mrs. Stallcup would fix us a home cooked meal. We had great discussion about chromosomes. At the time I didn’t realize how lucky I was as a mere freshman to have the exposure to such a renown scientist, especially when I wasn’t even a science major. Our friendship continued to develop when he was named Provost and I served on the Advisory Board to the Provost. Dr. Stallcup was the first person I told when I got into my MBA program… even before my family. I remember how he let me interrupt an important meeting in his office with my good news. That has always meant so much!
