I was a staff member in Dr. Livingston's Office in the late 70s when he served as Dean of Graduate Studies. He was a class act: unfailingly kind, calm and helpful. I have never forgotten what a gentle and genuine soul he was.

I took his British Government class in the early 70,s and I don't think I missed one of his lectures. He was that good. What a wonderful career he had. Condolences to his family.

Shirley Bird Perry was my sister. She
spoke of "Bill" with great love and
admiration. They devoted their careers
to UT and each made such an outstanding
impact. It's nice to think Dr.
Livingston and Shirley Bird are planning their next magnificent project.

At age 19 in the summer of 1959, I stayed in Austin after my freshman year rather than return to my hometown (Liberty, Texas). I had had a challenging freshman year in Plan Two, although I enjoyed it. I worked for state government downtown. I chose to take a general government course taught by Dr. Livingston sort of as a relief from my regular academic path. And swimming. I got Dr. Livingston totally by random. It was the greatest course I ever took. I was riveted and at the same time very entertained by Dr. Livingston's ability to teach. I made an A in the course. Dr. Livingston and I only interacted during classtime. I briefly wondered if perhaps I should change my major to government, having made the only A in a course thus far at UT. But I continued with Plan Two. I'm glad to read in Dr. Livingston's obituary that life treated him well and that he was recognized often at the University with positions and awards. He greatly deserved them. I interacted briefly with another favorite professor, Dr. Willis Pratt, at a Plan Two reunion several years ago. I wish I had had the opportunity to interact with Dr. Livingston as well but am very pleased to know that his life was so full that he hardly needed any more friends or recognition. I'm appreciative that you put Dr. Livingston's obituary in the Dallas Morning News, as it was informative to many people I'm sure who might not have known of Dr. Livingston's death otherwise. He was simply a very great teacher and person, in addition to other great qualities. Dale P. Johnson Dallas (age 73)
