A memory submitted by Linda Olson (Eidsvold), Class of 1986

Luis Martin was by far the best professor one could ever have. From the first MINUTE of class he was absurdly engaging. He and his class, “The History of Mexico,” became legends at SMU. I actually learned a lot about the History of Mexico, but his class went much, much deeper and made one think about the opportunities that were presented to one for the simple luck of having been born American.

I will never, ever forget him, yet, there are few other professors I can even name from my college years.
