Dear Imholte family,
I am a 1975 graduate of UMM. One of my most precious photos is Jack shaking my hand and handing me my diploma.
I happen to be a great-great grandson of a member of Company B, 1st Minnesota Volunteers, and am pleased to own a copy of Jack's history of that remarkable Regiment. I will remember Jack every time I pick it up.
My condolences are extended to all of you that loved Chancellor Imholte.

Lucy and all - So sudden we hear the news. Time passes and waits for no one. Generations come and go on the University of Minnesota-Morris campus. Memories of the early years will need to be filed studiously away. Yes, there was a time with no Internet, texting and all the related stuff. Heck, I remember all the years when UMM didn't have any sort of real student center! And yet the place was deemed a gem. Today there's this endless shopping list of amenities that a campus simply "must have," when really it's about keeping up with the Joneses or winning a peculiar "arms race." At some point our society will be humbled about this. I seem to recall Jack's silver hair inspiring a nickname, maybe "silver fox?" I asked him once if Longstreet was right at Gettysburg, wanting to establish a defensive stance (vs. Lee's pugnaciousness)? He agreed. Civil War history can be mined endlessly. I wrote a lengthy blog post about the Sam Smith "running rifleman" statue at Summit Cemetery here. Our library has Jack's book: "The First Minnesota." There is a little display board here reporting on Jack's death. You're aware my father Ralph E. Williams passed away in February of last year. A real changing of the guard, I guess. Steve Granger, Don Spring et. al. Take care you all.
