Warner ’49. The date: Jan. 18. The place: Virginia House of Delegates. The occasion: Recognition of Putney’s 51st legislative session, making him the longest-serving member of that body. Warner, who retired from the U.S. Senate after 30 years, surprised his old friend and received the rare opportunity to address the delegates. No one was surprised that both men received lengthy standing ovations. PH OTO G R APH : A SS O C I AT E D PR E SS Last Look Global Learning Initiative 3/8/12 4:37 PM
