For my money, one of the best things about both Ephblog and these podcasts is getting to know the men I like to call the “Eisenhower Ephs”, those members of classes from the 50’s. Here on Ephblog, we have the Shirley Temple like sunniness of Frank Uible and the dry wit of Dick Swart (Hope you were able to stay warm last weekend, Dick. That’s an Oregon inside joke) The podcast has already featured David H.T. Kane and in this episode, I speak with Joe Young, the current class secretary for 1958.
For any high school seniors who sweated out the Williams application and kept vigil all winter, please note that not everyone had the experience that Joe had getting into Williams, but it does reinforce the power of fortuna, as the Romans would say, in daily affairs;)
