A memory submitted by David Schum, Class of 1956, 1961

I wish to tell you about one the most important persons in my life of 82 years now. He is Professor Samuel Geiser. I had three courses with Professor Geiser at SMU who was in the Zoology Dept. I have been a university professor myself for 50 years now at Ohio State, Rice, and George Mason. I keep Dr. Geiser’s picture on my desk to remind me what a splendid teacher and scholar looks like. I have tried my best to be as good as he was, but I have found this quite difficult. There is no way I can record my feelings about Dr. Geiser in this small box. Many thanks.
