A memory submitted by Ben Sanders, Class of 1970

My favorite professor was Dr. Roland Porth in the business school. I attended SMU from 1966 to 1970 and graduated with a BBA in accounting in 1970. I had Dr. Porth for “Federal Income Tax” my junior year. He was very personable and made “taxes” interesting. During the tax busy seasons in 1969 and 1970, I worked for Dr. Porth, assisting him in the preparation of individual tax returns for his personal tax clients. He lived nearby, in Highland Park just a few blocks from school, and I would go over to his house in the afternoons and work in his home. He had a son, Buddy (Roland, Jr.), who was a student at Highland Park HS and after a few hours of working on taxes, Buddy and I would usually end up on their driveway playing pickup basketball game. Fond memories!
