Guest Book Highlights

February 13, 2021 "Dr. Zacharias was a friend and colleague of my father Dr. F. D. Williams (Sr.) at UT Austin 1969. As newcomers to Austin TX, Mrs. Zacharias helped us get settled, we didn't have a car yet (my father was still using it while finishing up a summer job at UW Madison WI - until he moved to Austin late 1969 to start work at the U. Texas Speech Communications Center. They are a great family - I actually baby sat a couple of times for them - when they got stuck for a sitter. He, Bob Jeffries, R. Byrnes, and a few others were a great team at UT. Greetings from San Mateo, CA! Dr. Byrnes went with my Dad to USC (Annenberg School of Communications) in 1973. I'm a little late to the party on this page - I was looking around for former co-workers of my (late) Father. Dr. Zacharias has a great sense of humor, as did his wife Tommie - they were especially gracious to us "kids" back in the day.. God Bless them.
They are still amazing!
