A memory submitted by Susan Pollan, Class of 1973

My favorite faculty member was Bill Fox, who taught Humanities. He was my advisor, so we became friends. He was a wonderful teacher, both interesting to and interested in all of his students. He helped me navigate my first two years of college, leaving a lasting impression. I was so saddened when he left SMU in order to obtain his Ph.D. at Emory. I heard that he was just as beloved at Emory as he was at SMU. I will always credit him for installing in me a love of learning and an appreciation for the humanities. I went on to obtain a Master’s degree from the University of Dallas where I had some great professors, but none that I loved like Bill Fox!
