At one point, I know in January of 1963, you came to Athens to interview for the Dean of Women's job. What was your driving thought on that and what was your experience?
Dr. Sorrells was the Dean of Students then. He wrote me and asked me to come to Athens, and I wrote him back and told him that I was not interested, I had a good job there, and he said, "Can I come up and see you?" So he came to see me and he had talked me into coming to Athens for a visit, and I stayed at the Georgia Center, which was a new facility then, and I met with all the staff, and then he tried to convince me it would be the thing to do. Well, I went back and talked to my Dean of Women, the person who had been my Dean of Women. She said, "You need to do that. It is a bigger school. You need to do it. "And so I accepted the position and cried all the way down here, but after I got here, loved it. It was the thing to do. It was definitely the thing to do.
When you came in you had met some of us, right?
I had met a lot of them that you would know. Ms. Artau, Ms. Bondurant, Mrs. Singleton, Dean Tate, who became my weekend pal the rest of the time I was here.
