When I came to Lincoln as Schramm Professor in 1987 Sam could not have been more helpful, supportive and welcoming. I treasured his friendship then and in subsequent years.
On a personal note Sam and his wife lived down the street from my mother and one of their sons delivered her newspapers. She thought very highly of him and always wanted that remembered to Sam. Over the years virtually every time I saw Sam he asked about my mother.
