I have been a fan ever since
Herman B Wells was still president of IU when I was a freshman. I shook hands with him and introduced myself as I passed through a reception line with hundreds of other IU freshmen at the beginning of the school year. I saw President Wells on campus several weeks later, and he called me by name. I have been a fan ever since. He was the most remarkable man I ever met.
