Dr Clifton W. Potter Jr. ~ UL History Professor
One word in the latest edition of The Critograph—nostalgia—sent me tumbling back through the decades to my freshman year at Lynchburg College. High school was, for me, five years of drudgery. Arriving on our campus on September 3, 1958 was like leaving a dark tunnel and coming into the sunlight of a summer morning. Later, after studying classical philosophy as a junior, I probably compared it to Plato’s analogy of the cave. Time has softened all those memories, but that does not negate the fact that my freshman year was the turning point in my life.
