I was a freshman at SMU in 1956. I happened to catch Dr. Harold Jeskey for the basic chemistry course for science majors. At that time, the Chemistry Dept. required their professors to rotate out of the basic 8 hour course every 3 years. Later, in the summer of 1958, I had 2 summer sessions of organic chemistry under Dr. Jeskey. This was daylight to dark chemistry with him, including the labs. He was a wonderful man, a great teacher and influenced my life positively in many ways.Around 1975, I was in Dallas and decided to go see him. I walked into Fondren Science, and he was coming down the hall toward his office. He called me by my full name, and I had not seen him in about 15 years. He remembered everything about my time with him.I feel really blessed to have known him and to be able to honor him with a donation to the Chemistry Dept. each year.
