Bob Shryock ’60 was a former Gettysburg College student who eventually flunked out but still managed to have an influence on society as a columnist for the South Jersey Times (NJ.com).
His career is nearing an end, but here is his latest column with a quick story from his time at Gettysburg. This is the opening excerpt:
“During a trip back to the mountains recently, the memories swirled to Christmas 1956, my freshman year at Gettysburg College.
Douglas Underkoffler, my fellow Phi Gamma Delta pledge brother, and battle-tested roomie, ran an interesting idea past me while we dined on burgers and fries at the Lincoln Diner one evening.”
