Professor of Classics Emeritus Leslie Day was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis in 1983, just prior to her second trip to excavate the ruins at Kavousi in Crete. Realizing that hiking the steep trails to the site several times a day would be painful, yet determined not to let the disease stand in the way, Day devised a solution. “I believe it’s the only time that faculty development funds were used to rent a mule,” she says. “Faculty rented cars all the time to get to their work— so I thought, Why not?” To reassure the funding committee that the money was being well used, Day sent postcards of donkeys and mules in Greece throughout her stay there.
