At Yale Ollie and I shared many, many memorable experiences from rowing in tandem during many a Heavyweight Rowing race to racing to escape the police during a frat boys night-out in Poughkeepsie. Although we lost track of each other l will miss him and he will be well-remembered.
My very best to Anita. Lex Towle
