Dr Wallace Sterling was the finest University President that Stanford has ever had and Dr Kenneth Pitzer was far down the list. And it was under Dr Sterling's tenure that Timm Williams first came to Stanford to give his support to it's athletic teams.

Dick Lyman was a scholar and a gentleman - a superb combination of skills and ability.

This is such a loss to the Channing House community.

My sympathy to Jing Lyman and family and friends.
