I really did run into Dean Bart Cregger, on my first day running around campus and through the School of Engineering. I was scrambling to add another course to my schedule, which it turns out would have been way too much for me. Bart already knew that, and persuaded me not to worry about it.

Over the next three years, Bart continued to be a friendly presence for me, and many others, I'm sure. Just knowing he was in the building was encouraging, and whenever we saw each other, he always said "Hi, Bill."

When we got the word he had been taken to a hospital with a stroke, then that he had died, I learned that he had been only a few months older than I was at the time. I hope his family and friends are comforted by this cartoon remembrance.
