Letter from the President

Dear Friends, This semester I was honored to receive, on behalf of Rhodes College, an award from the Zion Cemetery Project recognizing the work of students, faculty, and staff in helping to restore Memphis’ oldest African-American cemetery and recover and archive its history. This partnership is just one of many, many examples of ways that Rhodes lives up to its responsibility to our community and the community, in turn, supports student learning. Experiences like the ones students have at Zion are more than opportunities to serve. They are ways to put classroom learning into practice, to learn to solve realworld problems, and to develop career-ready skills. Eighty-five percent of our students participate in at least one internship or research project while they are at Rhodes. It is a big factor in what we are calling

The Rhodes Edge. Our students graduate with an edge. They are intellectually ready to face challenges; they are ready to serve and lead. And they are ready to take the next step to land spots in top graduate schools or in the world of work. Honing this edge is a major focus of our new strategic plan, which can be read at Rhodes.edu/ strategicplan. The planning process was guided by a steering committee of faculty, staff, students, and alumni and involved extensive internal and external research. Overall, more than 5,000 voices participated in shaping this plan and it reflects the best of both our history and our hopes for the future. The plan builds on our historic strategic strengths, including our reputation for excellence in the liberal arts and science, the successful career outcomes of our graduates, our world-class teaching, our strikingly beautiful campus, and our unique home in the city of Memphis. And at the same time, it prepares us for a future in which our students will need new skills and will arrive with new ambitions and experiences. Our goals are ambitious but achievable. It will require all those who care for Rhodes to participate in bringing it to life. I look forward to hearing your thoughts and ideas and to working with you as we move our beloved college from strength to strength. Best,

Marjorie

Martin Luther King Jr., faculty supplemented the exhibits with lectures on African-American history, Brown vs. Board of Education, the Selma to Montgomery march, the Sanitation Workers’ Strike, and the life and work of Dr. King. The students, whether from the Memphis area or from across the country, say they learned something new about civil rights, racism, and Memphis’ role in history.

rience was unique. “I’m glad to learn more about the sanitation workers and connect it all to Memphis. The professors made me realize how much of an impact it had. Before this, I didn’t even know why Martin Luther King had come to Memphis,” Matthews says. First-years Addison Horton ’23 and Maya Ring ’23 both say they appreciate the opportunity to connect to the city as part of their Rhodes education and to share this experience with their entire class. “I think it is very beneficial that it is right off the bat and we did it as a class. We are a very diverse class, and it is great to see people who have come from different backgrounds have similar reactions and start conversations,” says Horton. Ring says this has encouraged her to think more about her engagement with Memphis going forward. “It connects us to the greater Memphis community. It could be easy to just be focused on Rhodes, but instead we can be connected and try to learn more and give back

over our four years,” Ring says. Hughes, who has participated in guiding the first-year students’ visit to the museum through all four years, says that it is a vital component of the Rhodes education that serves as a basis for conversations throughout their college experience. “The really great thing about the National Civil Rights Museum is that, at the very beginning of the students’ time at Rhodes, they have a shared experience that absolutely comes back over the course of their time at the college,” Hughes says. “In classes that I teach, I have numerous times had students reference the museum visits or bring up questions or topics they have. It’s just really clear that not only is it giving them this wonderful experience, but also giving them some language and some shared ideas that come up in their time at college, no matter their major or their plans for after they graduate.” The experience is made possible by the generosity of Riea and Steve Lainoff P’11, P’15.

Teamwork

Rhodes student and professor spend the summer exploring aquatic ecosystems.

Driven by a love of being outdoors and on the water, environmental science major Bernadette Badamo ’21 contacted assistant biology professor Dr. Patrick Kelly last year about assisting him with his research on aquatic ecosystems. As a result, she spent the summer in a canoe measuring sources of organic carbon in MidSouth lakes to analyze how these lakes store and release carbon and how they cycle nutrients. “Scientists characterize ecosystems based on carbon balance. Lakes receive a lot of nutrients and carbon from the landscape, so we want to understand what influence they have on the lakes,” says Badamo. “This can be important to the general public, because this has implications for greenhouse gas emissions.” The carbon cycle involves the movement of carbon in and out of

air, water, and land and its interactions with organisms such as plants and animals. Carbon attached to oxygen forms carbon dioxide (CO2). Plants take CO2 from the air to make food and release oxygen, a process called photosynthesis. Animals take in oxygen and release CO2 by breaking down sugars, a process called respiration. Too much carbon emission from humans or the natural environment, however, traps heat in the atmosphere, contributing to climate change. Lakes can be an important part of this process, contributing greatly to the global carbon cycle. A number of things impact lake carbon cycling, including nutrients from the landscape that may also reduce water quality and clarity. “We are putting sensors in the lakes and measuring dissolved oxygen throughout the day,” says

Badamo. “We use those data to estimate rates of primary production — taking carbon dioxide out of lakes and turning it into biomass — and respiration — turning biomass into carbon dioxide.” The lakes from which Badamo and Kelly have been taking samples include Epping Way, Poplar Tree, Glenn Springs, Whiteville, and Herb Parsons in Tennessee; Arkabutla and Chewalla in Mississippi; and Horseshoe in Arkansas. Badamo says she has gained knowledge about how lakes and their food webs function in response to the external environment. “Bernadette has been integral to the research projects going on in my lab,” says Kelly. “She has an incredible work ethic, is curious and very competent, and picks up on fieldwork protocols right away and never needs to be shown how to do something twice. I could not have collected the amount of data I did this summer without her assistance.” The researchers also have been journeying to the University of Mississippi field station near Oxford, MS, to conduct an ongoing experiment focused on how different amounts of nutrients contribute to harmful algal blooms in lakes. This research is being done in collaboration with research ecologist Dr. Jason Taylor at the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Dr. Thad Scott, an associate professor of biology at Baylor University. Common nutrients in lakes are nitrogen and phosphorus, which can be found in fertilizers, storm water, sewage, and animal waste. Too many nutrients induce the growth of algal blooms beyond what is needed for the fish, animals, and organisms in the ecosystem to eat. Microorganisms, in breaking down excess bloom that have died, consume the oxygen that

FALL2019

is needed by the fish or other aquatic organisms, causing them to die. At the University of Mississippi field station, the Rhodes researchers collected small floating organisms in 12 enclosed pools of water. Each one was treated with a different ratio of nitrogen to phosphorus to see the response. “Scientists are really interested in how different ratios of nutrients contribute to harmful algal blooms,” says Kelly. “The outcome

of this will hopefully have realworld implications for how farmers and managers think about fertilizer inputs in the environment. “The outcomes of both projects will contribute to the scientific community’s understanding of nutrient cycling, carbon processing, and how food webs react to nutrient loads,” adds Kelly. “These projects may also have important implications for the general public and lead to management decisions for how we use and improve the lakes in our local areas.”

FALL2019

The ten-year plan, approved unanimously by the Board of Trustees in the fall, is set to span the decade from 2020 to 2030 and emphasizes the “Rhodes Edge” as three key attributes. It should leave students as “intellectually ready to tackle the world’s most pressing problems; leadership ready to create equitable and prosperous communities; and career and graduate school ready to succeed in tomorrow’s economy.” Through improving the undergraduate experience, students, faculty, and alumni will be more likely to invest in the institution’s future. To make this happen, Rhodes has four areas of focus that will guide the vision over the next decade. The first, bolstering academic excellence, comprises faculty hires, study abroad and local internship opportunities, a renewed drive to improve interdisciplinary centers modeled after the Lynne and Henry Turley Memphis Center, strengthening the fine arts programs, and improving the pre-medical track, which accounts for about 40 percent of Rhodes’ applicant pool each year. The second focus, fostering a culture of belonging, encompasses building a diverse student culture that continues to engage in community service projects within the Greater Memphis Area. Additionally, students should leave with a deeper commitment to the school and a greater sense of school spirit. Part of that drive includes improvements to the school’s athletic programs, as well as more intramural sporting and fitness options. Third, ensuring a transformational student experience, stresses a residential experience that provides the best platform for new students to grow. That includes more community events for incoming students and more opportunities to interact with faculty who are part of their fields of interest. On the more professional side, the school will implement a new four-year plan at Career Services to prepare students for careers after school. The final focus is to secure the school’s future. The Strategic Vision pushes the school to find new revenue streams, sustain its workforce, tell the Rhodes story both locally and nationally to

invite more philanthropic investment, cultivate community partnerships, and create a new master campus plan. Overall, the four focus areas will provide a much richer undergraduate experience for incoming students. To truly hone the Rhodes Edge, that means starting the process immediately in a way where students can learn and grow organically. “Many of our students arrive without having an idea of what they want to major in,” says Rhodes College President Marjorie Hass. “When it comes to making that decision, we’re really unique in two ways. First, our curriculum is built so that a student doesn’t need to choose a major until the end of their sophomore year. It means students have the opportunity to explore their interests broadly at the beginning of their time here. And they can get faculty advisors to guide them on a path that excites them without being forced to narrow these choices. “The second is that when declaring a major, students have to write a statement about why this is an exciting field for them,” she continues. “We really see this choice as a big decision, not because we think it determines a student’s career choice, but because it’s our students’ way of coming to learn more about themselves, about their unique contributions, and what way they want to change the world.” That freedom to choose is something Hass points to as critical to honing the Rhodes Edge. Many subjects that are encountered in a college setting aren’t normally available in high school. Hass points to the fastest-growing majors like public health, computer science, urban studies, and neuroscience; skills from a secondary school education don’t directly translate to fields like the aforementioned, and asking students to choose a track too soon could close pathways prematurely. After being helped through the initial process, Rhodes students have a better sense of what they are passionate about. One of the most important aspects of the Rhodes Edge is that it doesn’t keep the primary focus exclusively on classroom lessons. “The old model of college being a refuge from the real

world is just that — an old model,” says Hass. “Students today are hungry for a much more integrated form of education. So at Rhodes, students are preparing for life after college the day they arrive.” Theoretical studies are mixed with practical, hands-on learning like laboratory research or participation in a campus literary magazine. But the final stroke of the Rhodes Edge is to encourage students to take the skills they’ve learned to organizations off-campus. For Dorian Canales ’20, his journey through the economics major led him to pursue an internship with FedEx Express. Having moved to Memphis from Tegucigulpa, Honduras, at age seven, he grew up in the Mid-South and graduated from Christian Brothers High School before earning a Bonner Scholarship to attend Rhodes. While searching for outside opportunities, he came across an available position in FedEx’s engineering and technology department. Over a three-month period, he dove into his work, bringing

he says. “Then, you can take those outside the gates and reach for these competitive opportunities. Rhodes has really helped me develop a strong foundation and transferable skills to thrive in the industries I’m interested in.” Applying a critical approach to improve day-to-day at a Fortune 500 company like FedEx is impressive, but Rhodes students are making impacts in fields very different from business. New Jersey native Claire McGuire ’20 was drawn to the liberal arts college for the abilities it had to connect her with opportunities off-campus. “I knew I wanted to attend a liberal arts college after attending a big high school,” says McGuire, “and I appreciated the internship and research options they have around here, the study abroad programs, and the personal connection you can build with professors.” After taking Intro to Environmental Sciences her sophomore year, she knew that was the field for her. The summer before her senior year, McGuire used funds from winning the Rosanna Cappellato Award in Environmental Sciences to develop a study to research another issue very Memphis-centric: the Wolf River. “I’m currently doing an anthropogenic impact study on the river and looking at how humans have influenced it: What nutrients are we putting into it, what’s the level of microplastic pollution?,” she says. “Really, we’re looking for different human markers. There’s a lot of plastic in the river, and then when you get farther out there are different nitrogen levels where there’s more farming. It’s not as pronounced as it is here, but you still have erosion and runoffs [from pesticides] in that area.”

McGuire jumped at the chance to explore an issue that was both of interest to her and beneficial to Memphis. “This research has implications for how we can better protect the river and how we can mitigate runoff into it,” she says. “If we’re putting in a lot of plastic, nitrogen, or carbon, how do we alter that so the river can still be used recreationally by the people of Memphis?” To pursue her research, McGuire says she f requently drew on experiences and skills she picked up through class and labs at Rhodes. Techniques from the environmental science track prepared her to test water quality, acidity, salinity, and dissolved oxygen in the river, while Professor Patrick Kelly assisted on the project in an advisory role. “I’ve been working in his lab and having him help run tests and analysis,” says McGuire. “He’s been really helpful to bridge the gap between the classroom and what I wanted to do to create my own project.” As she wraps up her project, McGuire is looking at marine science graduate options like Arizona State University, the University of Georgia, and the University of Maine. She says that she was alerted to some of her preferred Ph.D. candidacies due to professors sending her emails about openings around the country. “Because I’ve been able to build these relationships here, they know my interests, they know what I want to do,” she says. “That’s been helpful, and I’m thankful I had the opportunities through the environmental science program. It’s really allowed me to build up my resume and has made me a much more well-rounded individual.”

examples of the relationships and projects Rhodes wants its students to cultivate. With 85 percent of the student body having had either an internship or career readiness experience, those opportunities makes Rhodes College graduates attractive to employers. “Our students are career-ready in that they have all the skills an employer would say they want,” says Hass. “Rhodes is a dynamic place. This is not a passive static absorption of knowledge. These are classrooms where conversation is lively and intense, where they are used to having to pull their weight to help shape and make the experience. And so when a student leaves Rhodes and they go off to the world of work and they’re asked to make a presentation at a meeting, they show up ready to go.” Hass continues to view Rhodes’ location in Memphis as a strategic asset for students. With access to top Fortune 500 companies, nonprofits, and NGOs, there are plenty of outlets for students to apply what they’ve learned as an undergraduate. As Hass and the school head into the next decade, every part of that process is equally important for maximizing a student’s potential. “I hear over and over again from city leaders that they are impressed by the incredible impact they’ve seen from our students,” she says”. And when we think about the Rhodes Edge, we think it’s the whole mosaic of experiences that a student has here that is what gives them that edge.” For more information about the Rhodes Edge, visit rhodes.edu

The Long Journey to Memphis

Born in 1934, Lawrence Anthony grew up on a farm outside Florence, South Carolina. As a child, he displayed artistic talent, but his family was too poor to provide him with the means of expressing it. So he resorted to drawing on scraps of paper and cardboard, or using a fireplace poker to whittle designs in the fireplace mantle. The Anthony family somehow managed to subscribe to the Book of the Month Club, and Anthony admits that he made some of his earliest drawings in the blank pages of those books. “My father never had time to read them,” he says, “and my mother didn’t object.” Anthony served as editor of his high school newspaper. He enrolled at Washington and Lee University in Lexington, Virginia, “because I thought I wanted to be a newspaper reporter.” All along, however, he had been sketching and drawing on anything he could find, even pieces of shirt cardboard, so he decided to major in art. There was just one problem. Washington and Lee didn’t offer an art degree; this was in the 1950s, and few major colleges did. One day, however, he sat down with a sympathetic dean, who “wrote out all the courses he could think of that had anything to do with art,” he says. “So I got a degree, but I didn’t really major in anything — just kind of a conglomeration of stuff.” In the early 1950s, the U.S. was involved in the Korean War, so Anthony joined the Navy Reserves. He enrolled in Officer Candidate School and was

transferred to Pensacola, but a history of asthma cut short his plans to be a pilot. Instead, he spent his time on various ships “as the lowest of the low, mostly scrubbing decks and chipping paint off them.” He was relocated to different Navy yards up and down the East Coast, and when the war finally wound down, Anthony’s military stint came to an end. He journeyed to Europe, where he spent a year visiting galleries and museums there. That was a formative experience, and when he returned to the United States, he decided, “I’d better get on with my art.” So, in the late 1950s, Anthony enrolled at the University of Georgia, which had one of the top art departments in the country. He was mainly interested in drawing and painting and remembers his first meeting with a professor there. “I didn’t even know how to stretch a canvas,” he says, “so my whole portfolio was things I had painted on cardboard.” Even so, that professor liked what he saw, admitted him to the department, and two years later Anthony earned a master’s from UGA. Along the way, however, he mingled with other students who were focusing on sculpture and discovered he had a knack for it. As he explains, “It was just something I started doing on the side, but it was more interesting than painting. I discovered I could deal directly with images and not do all this push-andpull with the paint surface.”

What’s more, he encountered professor Leonard DeLonga, a talented metal sculptor. “He was highly important and influential to me,” Anthony says. “A lot of it was his personality.

It was like Christmas, and I pretty much built the art department from scrap.” He also recruited skilled teachers from the Memphis College of Art, such as Burton Callicott and Mary Sims, to teach part-time. During this period, Lon met Anne Sayle ’73, After finishing college, she took a job teaching grades 1-3 at a little school in Dundee, Mississippi. She and Anthony were married in 1976. While Lon spent his days at the college, Anne taught at other schools in Memphis, ultimately teaching art at St. Mary’s. Also an accomplished sculptor, she was a singer, songwriter, and composer. Anthony was a distinctive figure on campus, with his long hair and penchant for turtlenecks and denim jackets. He didn’t like cars, so he walked or rode his bicycle everywhere. He bought a bungalow on Washington Avenue, a block west of Cooper, which he and Anne transformed into a home, studio, and off-campus hangout for students and teachers. The house was just across Overton Park from the school, and “I really loved that,” he says. “I was always close to the students, and a lot of the faculty lived like that in those days. Nobody back then drove 20 miles to come to work. It was a wonderful environment, and the community in Midtown was my world.”

“First and foremost, Rhodes College is a community,” says David McCarthy. “That community developed because people take the lead in nurturing and sustaining them, and that’s what Lon did.

A Life in Art Anthony worked on his own projects while helping students and friends complete theirs. One of his best-known public pieces here is the Dramatis Personae grouping that adorns the grounds of Theatre Memphis (far right). Nine massive abstract figures, some more than eight feet tall and formed from half-inch steel plates, represent wellknown actors and characters from drama: Sarah Bernhardt, Cyrano de Bergerac, Punchinello, and others. “This was envisioned and originally installed as an interactive piece,” says Anthony. “It was like the figures were relating to each other in some way, either talking or confronting each other.” The work, which took two years to complete, was unveiled in 1983. About a year later, when Theatre Memphis expanded, the figures were separated, and they now pose individually on the front lawn, visible to anyone who drives by the complex on South Perkins. Anthony remembers the project was, almost literally, a back-breaking task. “This was very heavy stuff, and I had to cut it all out,” he says. “Nowadays you can draw a picture, take that to a fabricator, and they’ll cut it for you. We didn’t have that back then, so I used an acetylene torch, which was messy and sloppy. But it worked.” He created many other pieces, either as public commissions or on his own, using an astonishing variety of materials. Dramatis Personae was high-grade Corten steel plate, but other works were cut, forged, welded, cast, and carved from copper, bronze, clay, concrete, alabaster, figwood, mahogany, cedar, ceramics, plywood, polyester resin, and fiberglass. Some of his mixed-media creations incorporated different kinds of paint, embellished with odd materials such as Elmer’s Glue. Anthony stepped down as chairman of the art department in 1991, but he continued to teach at Rhodes parttime until he retired in 1996 and left Memphis. His works are displayed in private and public collections around the world, including the Memphis Brooks Museum of Art, the University of South Carolina, Vanderbilt University, the Delgado Museum of Art in New Orleans, the Virginia Art Museum in Richmond, the Metropolitan Opera Company in New York City, the Terre des Hommes Pavilion in Montreal, and the U.S. Embassy in Bern, Switzerland. “Underpinning all his work,” writes Marina Pacini in the essay that introduced Anthony’s 1996 retrospective

at Rhodes, “is a strong narrative component. That Anthony is a consummate verbal storyteller comes as no surprise. Many of his sculptures seem to have stepped right out of one of his tales.” David McCarthy echoes that impression, saying, “Lon was very much in that Southern tradition of spinning a yarn, often about growing up and how he came into a life of art.” At age 85, living with his wife, Anne, in a spacious beachfront house on Summerland Key in Florida, Anthony is still a storyteller today. He can regale callers and visitors with tales about his long and fascinating

life, and the people he’s met along the way. Although he doesn’t travel as much as he used to, and hasn’t made a return visit to Memphis in almost 20 years, he stays connected. “Thanks to the internet, I keep in touch with the world, and am always learning new things,” he says. “And with Facebook, I know that a lot of my students have done wonderful things.” Indeed they have. “What Lon Anthony did for this institution was to find a way to make sure art would thrive on this campus,” says McCarthy. “He recognized his students’ creativity and talent and then provided them with the means for letting that grow.”

Constitution Day Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer Visits Campus.

By Caroline O’Connor ’20 Standing at the podium in McNeill Concert Hall, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Stephen Breyer contemplated the increasingly global issues that fill his des in Washington. When he began his time on the court nearly 25 years ago, he said, justices simply did not need to reference foreign bodies when writing their opinions. He would have been hardpressed then to even name a case that required no ledge of international law.

President Marjorie Hass and Associate Provost Timothy Huebner welcome Justice Breyer to campus.

“I have no problem today,” Breyer said. “It’s really risen to 20-30 percent, sometimes more, where you have to know what’s going on beyond our shores in order to solve problems, statutes, and constitutional interpretations.” The world has grown smaller, and he encouraged listeners to embrace potential new connections. B reyer visited Rhodes on October 3 to deliver the school’s annual Constitution Day lecture. He began his lecture by welcoming the crowd of more than 500 and noted that the event had brought the city together. Rhodes students, faculty, and staff were joined by members of the Memphis community, including U.S. Congressman Steve Cohen and federal and state judges. Appointed by President Bill Clinton in 1994, Breyer described growing globalization over the past two-and-a-half decades. His most recent book, The Court and the World: American Law and the New Global Realities, focuses on international issues affecting the Supreme Court, and he has traveled the country to encourage citizens to embrace the globalized world as an opportunity to learn from foreign governments. He listed a handful of cases he has decided that dealt with international law and foreign bodies, including a 2013 copyright case where a college student from Thailand sold hundreds of textbooks that he had shipped for a

reduced price at home. When the case reached the Supreme Court, the justices’ desks ended up filled with briefs from governments and organizations from around the world, with their decision having the potential to affect $2.3 trillion in commerce. International bodies and laws simply cannot be ignored, and he encouraged the crowd to participate and to see beyond boundaries. “The more you think, it isn’t good versus evil, it isn’t globalization versus localism or tribalism; it is that we are in a world where there is both,” Breyer said. The world is full of successful democracies, and Breyer argued that the U.S. could benefit from observing what these governments are doing well. Sara Weeks ’20 said that Breyer’s focus on international issues in the Supreme Cour t applied directly to the coursework in her bridge major. “In my political science classes, I have learned more about how our government functions, and in my international studies classes, I learn about how foreign governments operate and interact with each other,” she said. “Justice Breyer speaking on how the judicial branch interacts with foreign judiciaries was a pleasant surprise for me as it was very pertinent to my field of study.” Listeners got to hear about the day-to-day life of a Supreme Court justice, and learned that some perceptions are not necessarily reality. Justices focus on creating uniformity in the courts and, despite a polarized political climate, half of all Supreme Court cases are decided unanimously. He also described a life of studious reading and writing — not so different from a college student. “I read, and I do homework. And if you

dent Marjorie Hass hosted a dinner for Breyer, and they were joined by members of the Memphis community, including Rhodes faculty and local politicians and judges. Four students also attended, and after the main course Hass invited them to share which Supreme Court case was the most meaningful to them. Sarah Eiland ’20 is currently enrolled in Huebner’s Constitutional History class, and she chose the case Obergerfell v. Hodges, the landmark 2015 decision that legalized same-sex marriage. Justice Breyer decided on the case, ruling with the majority in the 5-4 decision. “I got to stand up and look in his eyes and thank him for his ruling in this case that has changed my life and has changed so many people close to me and all their lives. And talk about how that was the first time that our generation saw the impact that the Supreme Court can have on individual lives,” Eiland said. Breyer’s visit also came just days before the Court began proceedings on their newest round of cases, so these students were given the unique opportunity to meet with Breyer just before he returned to Washington to decide on potentially landmark new cases. Eiland added, “Who gets to thank a Supreme Court justice for their opinion on a case that changed people’s lives? So that was one of the coolest things I’ve been able to do, and one of the most meaningful and most inspiring.” Breyer’s 90-minute lecture was followed by a Q & A with Huebner. Students, staff, and faculty submitted questions, and Breyer discussed the work that goes into his briefs

His lecture highlighted how the Constitution applies to every American, and the Supreme Court justice encouraged attendees to follow its principles by engaging with different perspectives and participating in public life.

Folks with dementia experience social isolation, shunning, rejection, and loss of their place in the community. Likewise, the caregivers are exhausted, fearful, and socially isolated. Our chorus addresses these issues. We meet once a week for eight weeks, socialize for an hour or so, and practice familiar songs for an hour. At the end of that time period, we have a wonderful concert, showing what the memory-impaired can do. They will receive roses and be escorted to the reception area, where these stars will greet their admirers! Secondly, I am director of the Oro Valley Town Elder Health Center.

Summer is the traditional time for going on vacation. For some of us who are more or less retired, summer is still a good time to travel, whether we call it “vacation” or not. During June I took respite from several topsy-turvy months with home renovation in Birmingham to take a couple of road trips — first south to visit my son, Thomas Hagood, in Tallahassee, FL, and then north to visit friends and family in North Carolina, Virginia, Maryland, and Georgia. The latter included visits to former Southwestern roommates Judy Moody Daniel LePera (and husband Terry) in Harrisonburg, VA, and Marguerite Ward Autry in Silver Spring, MD. Besides having each join me in turn as “tourist,” I relished just hanging out with these dear old friends and building new bonds as we navigate the challenging and sometimes joyful waters of aging, helping others along the way as we can. A bonus of my time with Judy was renewing acquaintance with Mary Lou Quinn McMillan ’64, also a longtime Harrisonburg resident. My return trip

Lee, a personal friend of Elvis Presley, attended many of Elvis’ all-night parties at the Memphian Theater. Unfortunately for his grades, Lee spent more time with Elvis than he spent studying for his classes at Rhodes. Traveling from Nashville to Memphis for his junior year at Rhodes, Ben stopped alongside the interstate to change his tire. A piece of tire thrown from a passing semi hit and crushed Ben’s arm; consequently, he had to be rushed into surgery.

He says it was a wonderful and moving experience, as he had never seen so many rainbow flags or signs from retailers and companies in Times Square in his life. In July, Vincent was a guest of the Titanic Museum Attraction in Pigeon Forge, TN, for the opening of a new exhibit featuring the life jacket worn by Madeleine Force Astor when she was rescued. Her husband, John Jacob Astor (“Colonel Jack”) died in the sinking. She was pregnant with her son, also a John Jacob. Vincent is a distant cousin to all the Astors, going back to the 18th century. In his Memphis news, Vincent is involved in the placing of a historic marker on the Guild (now Evergreen) Theatre commemorating Bill Kendall ’45, who was the Guild’s flamboyant manager, and the Miss Memphis Review of 1969, the first drag show in a public place in the city.

Along with Deb, he is a member of Southern Crescent Chorale. They just finished their third European concert tour, to Scandinavia, and previously toured Spain, France, Scotland, and England. Frank says that Dr. Robert Amy and Dr. Charlie Warren were both wonderful mentors at Southwestern who encouraged him to pursue medicine.

Peg says she is always aware that she carries the examples of Bob Llewellyn P’99, P’02, Larry Lacy ’59, and Michael McLain into her teaching and mentoring of

students. Peg’s husband, Doug Corbitt, is also a philosopher and teaches at the Honors College at the University of Central Arkansas. They have raised two daughters, Annie and Jeannie, and from the time they were just toddlers, Peg and Doug set a family goal of hiking in every U.S. National Park. They have made 49 out of 60 so far, with return visits to several of their favorites, especially Yellowstone. Getting all of the parks in as a family has slowed now, as their daughters embark on their individual adult lives. Annie is a Ph.D. candidate in philosophy at Northwestern (Evanston, IL), and Jeannie, who brought a son-in-law, Ricky Shear, into their lives this past January, is completing her M.Div. at Austin Presbyterian Theological Seminary. An added benefit of having a family connection in Austin has been visits with Southwestern classmates, now-Austinites, Jeanne Cook and William Beardall. George Davidson and Jeanne Ann Mullen ’76 married 40 years ago and are still soulmates and artists. They have one son, Sam, a skateboard artist living in Oakland, CA. George and Jeanne Ann are both retired from the University of Georgia, where Jeanne Ann worked as a photographer at the School of Veterinary Medicine and George worked as a writer/editor at the School of Marine Programs. Jeanne Ann just had her first painting show since before Sam was born and is excited to be painting again. George is a house cat, who plays a lot of saxophone and “makes tiny perfectly useless devices.” He just made a recording — drums and sax duo — and is pressing 100 copies of the recording onto LP and making hand-numbered covers. George met J.W. Brown, Jerry Lee Lewis’ cousin and first bass player, about four years ago

while he was playing in a bar out in the country near Athens. He and George subsequently came to play together on a number of occasions. Though George and Jeanne Ann left Memphis after they graduated from Southwestern and never went back, George says that he appreciates his time in Memphis. It formed his musical tastes and put him on his path to the saxophone. He loved going to Southwestern “when it was a wide-open freak show.” Ben Mathes has broken the mold as a Presbyterian minister since leaving Southwestern. He worked with the villagers of Monkey Point, Nicaragua, to throw Iranian Revolutionary Guard troops out of Monkey Point and disrupted Iran’s plans to build a deep-water port for its navy. He invited Akbar Ismael Pour, ambassador from Iran, to defect. He smuggled polio vaccines inside a cooler with a frozen Butterball turkey into Bangladesh so that 500 children could be immunized in the Aladipuhr District. In his 35-year career as a missionary, Ben has served in 22 countries. He enjoys an active schedule of traveling abroad and in the U.S. speaking to churches, colleges, businesses, conferences, schools, and civic organizations. His articles can be found in magazines as broad as Tropical Medicine and Hygiene and Blade Magazine (a knife publication). The founder of Mission: Hope, Ben shares his adventures in the “Lessons From the Forests” audio series. He and his wife, Pui, live in Georgia and Thailand. They have two sons and four grandchildren. Ben says he was inspired at Southwestern by professors Richard Batey ’79, Tom Jolly ’52, Carl Walters ’56, and Milton Brown, and that they all prepared him for seminary to such a degree that he was able to opt out of coursework because he’d

done the work already at Rhodes. Ben says Dr. Batey was one of his most challenging professors and that his work in the Shelby County jail inspired Ben to volunteer there as well. He ended up spending twoand-a-half years as the “young chaplain” at the Shelby County jail and later, a year as chaplain at the federal penitentiary in Atlanta. Ben remembers Carl Walters as a more experiential than academic professor, who wore a serape and rode his bicycle to class. The two met outside in nice weather, drank wine, and had discussions. They didn’t agree on everything, but Ben found Walters “so loved, and loving.” Ben says that Southwestern, now Rhodes, was a “wonderful, wonderful college.” Kate Pera retired at the end of the summer after more than 35 years in the hospitality industry, where she focused on catering and convention services, private events, and offsite catering. When Kate graduated from Southwestern in 1975, she went straight into biochemistry research at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and after nine years, transitioned over to food and beverage. Kate says that Dr. Charlie Warren in the biology department taught her the importance of details and reporting exact results that are the backbone of special events and catering. The smallest detail is just as critical to a 20-person event as it is to a 2,000-person event. Kate moved to downtown Memphis 12 years ago and enjoys more time now on the River Walk and on her balcony, watching sunsets. She also plans to be more involved at her church, St. Patrick’s Catholic Church. She and her partner, Buddy Gaynor, will go to Tobago in October and take their annual trip to Acapulco in February. Robert Dick Tynes retired last year after 35 years of teaching art. When

he completed his MFA from East Carolina University, he first taught at Humboldt State University in California, then briefly at the University of Hawaii, and finally, for 31 years at the University of North Carolina, Asheville. He is enjoying retirement along with his wife, Bette Bates, who is also retired from teaching art. They spend time in their studios in Black Mountain but also find time to baby-sit their first grandchild. While at Southwestern, Robert took a number of classes from Lon Anthony and helped Lon weld some of his large copper figure sculptures. When Robert took a Modern Art History class from Anne Robbins, he discovered the Belgian Surrealist, Rene Magritte, who became a lifelong influence on Robert’s work. Robert says Anne was a great teacher who helped him tremendously with his honors thesis on surrealism. You can see Robert’s art at his website RobertTynes.com. Andy Branham left the practice of law in 2002 to open the Memphis office of a new Nashville-based emerging law company called Counsel on Call, specializing in flexible staffing and project management solutions for law firms in corporate legal departments. In 2017, they acquired a legal technology company out of Nashville and changed their name to Legility, where they offer technical as well as staffing and team solutions for large and small legal projects alike. Andy, who is executive director of Legility, says it’s been a good ride and he plans on doing this for the foreseeable future. He’s still stationed in Memphis, but spends a lot of time at the family farm outside of Gallatin, TN.

FALL2019 a 37-year career primarily in rural health care. She says it has been a rewarding career and credits Rhodes with preparing her for PA school. She is looking forward to more time playing with her grandchildren and traveling. Theresa Carl Cloys and her husband, Norm, live in Nashville. They are learning to live as a retired couple, as she wound up her formal career at the end of August. For the past five-and-a-half years, she served as president of “Governor’s Books from Birth Foundation,’ a 501(c)3 nonprofit that supports and sustains Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library program in all 95 Tennessee counties (governorsfoundation.org). Tennessee is the only statewide Imagination Library program in the U.S., having delivered more than 31 million books free of charge to Tennessee’s preschool children since the program’s inception in 2004. Theresa’s passion is early childhood literacy and she believes that access to books is the critical piece to develop young brains and prepare children for success in school and life. She and her husband have one daughter, Dr. Sarah Carl, who lives in Basel, Switzerland. Sarah is a data scientist and genomicist, focusing on single-cell analysis for biomarker discovery. Theresa and Norm are thrilled that Sarah and her French scientist fiancé, Sam Croset, married in May 2019. Annie (Ann) Godfrey retired last May after almost 39 years with the Environmental Protection Agency. Now she is spending her time with grandchildren, gardening, and volunteer activities. She says that her somewhat unusual degree in biomathematics from Rhodes definitely helped her with her graduate degree in environmental engineering.

Neil C. Johnston Sr. has been practicing law, mostly in Alabama, for more than 40 years with the same law firm and states, “I still don’t know ‘the law,’ with so many constant but intriguing changes.” Neil’s legal focus has been real estate, water, and natural resources (water, wetlands, coastal beaches, oil, gas, coal, timber, critters, oysters) and drones, piers, cane poles, and crickets. He is a longtime member of the Rotary Club of Mobile (president, 1996) with Norman Nicolson ’75. Through the Rotary Club and Neil’s environmental and outdoor lifestyle, he organized The Project CATE Foundation that produces environmental curriculum on CDs — Ribbit’s Big Splash (water focus) and Skeeter’s Wild Adventures (wildlife focus) — primarily for elementary and intermediate grades. Neil has been active with the Alabama Coastal Foundation and established a partnership with The Project CATE Foundation to conduct the annual Coastal Kids Quiz, a conservation scholarship competition for fifthgraders, now in its 18th year. He adds, “We also grow oysters for reef restoration through the Mobile Bay Oyster Gardening Program by suspending cages of shells and spat on our pier (actually our 10th pier since Hurricane Georges in 1998) in Mobile Bay. We usually produce 8,000 to 12,000 oysters between May and November, when my babies are taken out to some secret reef in Mobile Bay. We tried to name them all, but they all look alike!” Michael (Bill) MacCurdy taught for three years at Professor Ray Hill’s school, A Learning Place, after graduating from Rhodes. He also took some carpentry classes and put that knowledge to good use when he moved to Asheville, NC, in 1979, where he started a construction and realty company, Sun Construction

and Realty. He still runs that business 38 years later. Pate McCartney has retired as senior vice president and general manager of Truven Health Analytics, now an IBM company, where he was responsible for the health care programs of state and federal government agencies nationwide. He has a master’s and Ph.D. ’88 from Columbia University. Pate says his career was challenging and rewarding, but he is happily retired and enjoys having no commitments or routines other than trying to eat healthy (vegan), traveling, reading, ballroom dancing, and playing a little golf. Anna Olswanger continues to work as a literary agent in the metro New York City area. Like classmate Bob Cain, she’s “not done yet!” Her latest project is a graphic novel version of the late Broadway composer Marvin Hamlisch’s memoir, which she sold for the estate. The artist attached to the memoir is French-American Ian David Marsden, the first Google Doodle designer, whose work Anna discovered through Twitter. Marvin, the graphic novel, will be for young readers and comes out in spring 2020. Projects like this are especially meaningful for Anna, both because of the music aspect (she grew up in a home where her father, musician Berl Olswanger, filled it with the sound of his daily piano practicing) and because of the art aspect. She still remembers the many happy hours she spent painting in Clough Hall to fulfill the requirements for Biff Elrod’s and Peter Bowman’s painting classes. Louis “Blair” Shamel has lived in San Diego, CA, for most of the past 35 years. His consulting company, The Shamel Group, does strategic consulting for

He and Cindy, his wife of 43 years, just welcomed their first grandson, Luke, at the end of October. Blair and Cindy’s son, Louis, lives in San Diego and works as director of worldwide pricing for a large scientific products company. Blair and Cindy’s other son, Andy, is an Episcopal priest, who lives in Oxford, England, and is pursuing a D.Phil. in theology. Blair credits his success in the biotech business to the strong foundation in science and ethics he received at Rhodes.

At Anderson Valley Elementary School, where I teach third grade, we had indoor recess every day for about a week before Thanksgiving on account of air quality.

“The experiences that I had at Rhodes, both inside and outside the classroom, have proven invaluable to me.” – Alan E. Curle ’82 MD A passion for the transformative power of the liberal arts and sciences inspired Dr. Alan E. Curle ’82 to establish a scholarship program that will enroll talented students and give them the opportunity to thrive in a challenging, inclusive, and community-centered learning environment. Dr. Curle, an anesthesiologist and medical professor at the University of Rochester, and his husband, Andrew S. London, PhD, share a commitment to education and the liberal arts. Dr. London is a professor and associate dean at Syracuse University. A true product of the liberal arts and sciences, Dr. Curle majored in biology at Rhodes and has made his career as a physician, but emphasizes his experiences in Rhodes Singers as some of the most formative moments of his college years. His desire to provide similar experiences for future students led him to make an estate commitment to establish the Alan E. Curle ’82 MD and Andrew S. London PhD Scholarship Program, which will provide endowed support for one student in each entering class at Rhodes. “The tools that were offered and honed to enhance learning during my time as a student set me on a trajectory that to this day brings me fulfillment and joy,” Dr. Curle explains. “It gives us great pleasure to know that our financial commitment to Rhodes will facilitate the offering of that exposure to students for years to come.” It is through the generosity of friends like Drs. Curle and London that Rhodes can continue to cultivate bright and passionate students who make an impact in the world.
