I would give almost anything for a tape of some of Dr. Langdale's speeches of early years. I heard him speak in Atlanta in 1976 that literally propelled me into a career I felt initially ill equipped for. Great speakers Like Noah are so very rare.

I worked my way through school in the GSU Post Office under Ray Cox. One of my jobs was to deliver Dr. Langdale's mail. He took the trouble to learn my name and would say hello to me if he was in his secretary's office when I came by. One of my clearest memories is of Dr. Suttles(Provost) and Dr. Langdale discussing going to down to the State Capitol to argue against a Student Fee increase. They felt it was their duty to lobby against it.
Dr. Langdale, said to me, "Brian, you're working your way through school, you can't really afford a fee increase right now, can you?" I said, "No, sir". I will never forget that my opinion mattered to them. He was a good man. And he loved Georgia State University.

I had the fine honor of meeting Dr. Langdale during my first week at GSU (then Georgia State College) in 1963 --and I was fortunate enough to frequently interact with Dr. Langdale, both academically and socially, until I finished my Master's Degree in 1969. Those were years during which GSC made great strides in size and academic prominence -- all under the tireless leadership of Dr. Langdale. Incredibly, he was always upbeat and he always made those in his presence feel special.

One of my fondest memories occurred at an awards banquet in 1967. Dr. Langdale shook my hand (with his usual vice grip) and with his left hand he pressed a knuckle into the outside of my right hand until I went down on my knees and, as quietly as humanly possible, begged for mercy. I never felt more special than at that moment.

I'll never forget the speech Dr. Langdale gave at my GSU inception in '85. You just wanted to run through a wall for this guy. He was always very approachable in the hallways. I really looked up to him as a man's man. I regret that he couldn't sign my diploma as he retired a year before I graduated.
His presence will certainly be felt when GSU and 'bama tee it up on the gridiron in 2010.
RIP, Dr. Langdale...
