The One Hundred and Eighty-Eighth Commencement
At the one hundred and eighty-eighth
commencement at Hampden-Sydney College on Monday,
June 8, 58 seniors received the B.A. degree and 35 seniors
received the B.S. degree.
John Peyton McGuire Boyd, Richmond, Va., gave
the valedictory address. David James Anderson of Portsmouth,
Va., was the recipient of the Algernon Sydney Sullivan
Medallion, presented to “that senior who has distinguished
himself for excellence of character and generous service to
his fellows.” William Sidney Druen, Farmville, Va., was the
recipient of the Gammon Cup, awarded annually to “the
member of the graduating class who has best served the
College in character, scholarship, and athletic ability.”
The Algernon Sydney Sullivan Medallion was also
presented to Dr. Hinton Baxter Overcash, professor of biology
at Hampden-Sydney College, who joined the faculty in 1922.
The award is given to one “who has been conspicuously helpful
to and associated with the institution in its effort to encourage
and preserve a high standard of morals.”
Honorary degrees were conferred upon the following,
with these citations:
ERWIN HOGE WILL, Chairman of the Board
of the Virginia Electric & Power Company, Richmond, Va.,
DOCTOR OF SCIENCE: “This morning your words have
enlightened us. In so doing you have symbolized the impact
of your life. As engineer, general manager, president, and
chairman of the board of the Virginia Electric and Power
Company, you have not only brought light literally all over
Virginia (even in these last days to that western part of
Hampden-Sydney’s Via Sacra, familiarly known as “Black
Bottom”) but also figuratively as you have demonstrated
that an engineer can be an effective leader in business and
community affairs. Your service as a member of the Board of
Visitors of the Virginia Polytechnic Institute, as president of
the Virginia State Chamber of Commerce, as a member of
the National Industrial Conference Board illustrates the wide
breadth of your interests and the willingness with which you
have given your life to others.”
ROBERT EDWIN WITHERS, JR., Episcopal
minister, Farmville, Va., DOCTOR OF DIVINITY: “Yours
has been a widely diverse life: soldier, business man, minister.
You have served churches with distinction in South Carolina
and in Virginia. But we know you best for your life with
us. Normally the distinguished service of men is of the sort
that brings plaudits of press and public, that lifts those who
served to fame and popular acclaim. Without belittling that
kind of service, we rejoice to honor what you have done in
quietly moving among us to meet the needs of individuals
and community. To enumerate your deeds is not possible, for
even your closest friends do not know them all. But where the
ministry of the Church could be given, where encouragement
of a friend was wanted, where the assistance of civic concern
4
was called for, there you have been. You could have lived
in plenty and without concern for others. You chose to give
yourself and your means to others.”
BUFORD SCOTT, senior partner—Scott &
Stringfellow, Richmond, Va., DOCTOR OF LAWS: “You
bring distinction and honor to your native state. Your integrity
and acumen in the world of finance have secured for you’re
the respect reserved for those who serve nobly and well and
have gained for the firm of Scott & Stringfellow international
renown. With equal effectiveness and devotion you have
distinguished yourself for service to the Church, to the
community, and to education. Time prohibits an enumeration
of all that you have done; but we would be remiss if we failed
to note your service as chairman of the boards of two fine
educational institutions in Virginia, Sweet Briar College and
the Medical College of Virginia. The highest praise I can give
is to quote the words of President R. Blackwell Smith, Jr., of
the Medical College of Virginia, when he describes you as ‘one
of Virginia’s most distinguished advocates for higher education
and one of our most beloved board members.’”
Mr. Edwin Hoge Will in his address to the
Hampden-Sydney graduates said: “Great changes have taken
place in our country since 1776 when Hampden-Sydney
opened its doors. No country has been able to match our
overall progress. There is no need for additional statistics as we
all realize that even our lowest income group is better off than
the average of all the other peoples of the world. We have every
reason to reflect with pride on our material accomplishments,
but have we made a similar record in the area of moral,
spiritual, and humanitarian progress? This is the challenge for
your generation.
“Mere numbers have never been an object of
Hampden-Sydney; rather, major emphasis has been on
character and academic standing. You now have a basic
education that will be invaluable in your future training in
whatever profession you undertake.” Mr. Will stressed to the
students that their education should not be terminated at the
beginning of one’s life work, but actively continued throughout
life as a necessary asset in meeting the rapidly changing times
and developments.
“You will find, as others have, that in many lines of
business it is not so much what you know, but rather how you
apply what you know and what results you are able to produce.
What will enable you to receive a higher degree of success? The
initiative, the determination, and the extra ten percent that
you should devote to thinking, planning, and effort.”
In closing, Mr. Will reminded the seniors: “So
live your life in such a way that you help to pass on to your
children and others a better and freer world by leading a
Christian life and by doing those things you know to be right.
“In the history of mankind there arise crises which
test the greatness of men and, invariably, each generation
has come forward with those leaders who have guided our
destinies. Your generation will be no exception.”
Following commencement exercises, a buffet
luncheon was served in Winston Hall. Special guests of the
188th commencement were members of the classes of 1888 to
1914 and the class of 1924.

Favorite H-SC Story or Memory: To single out any one incident
that occurred at Hampden-Sydney during our time is difficult.
So many funny, improbable, seemingly impossible events
occurred that it is hard to single out one. However, a specific
event has always struck in my mind and involved one of our
favorite activities, water bagging, and one of the most skilled
of water baggers, George Perkins. George’s command post
was the hall window of the third floor of the First Passage of
Cushing Hall. The window was open, no screen, and George
could lean out and find many targets of opportunity. One day
after class, when many of us were returning to Cushing for
afternoon study, George was on Duty leaning out the window
with an ample supply of ammunition.
Unbeknownst to George, trouble was brewing in First
Passage where Freddy Reed, Class of 1963, must have decided
enough was enough. Freddy filled a trashcan with water, got
out on Cushing’s roof, and made his way along the roof to the
roof of First Passage. At this point you will have guessed what
happened. Freddy was on the roof, above the unsuspecting
George with a trashcan full of water. Freddy poured the water
on George and left him speechless, a condition that did not
often occur with George.
Water bagging was on all season sport at H-SC. And
no one was as active and talented as George. However, for one

H-SC Value: I received a fine education, made great life-long
friends, and have continued to enjoy events, parties, and
8
day, George was bested. Sadly, both George and Freddy are no
more. They did set a high standard for us all.
Most of the stories we will tell here relate to the
adventurous side of our stay at Hampden-Sydney. Rat races,
road trips, the Cushing International Races (CIR), etc. All of
these exciting tales should not obscure the real reason we all
came to Hampden-Sydney — to receive an education, obtain
a degree, and prepare ourselves for participation in the real
world.
The academic side of H-SC posed a number of
hurdles for us. Perhaps the major hurdle was deciding whether
to pursue the BA or BS degree. Roughly 60% of our class
chose the BA path, a route without too many afternoon labs,
thereby affording time for trips to the College Shop, the Taxi
Stand, and to Longwood, often in that order. To obtain the BS
degree a scholar was required to take Biology, Chemistry, and
Physics. For the BA degree only two of the three were needed.
To avoid very difficult H-SC classes, summer school was an
attractive option. Many of us took Chemistry at Madison,
thereby avoiding Dr. Miller, and some of us took Biology at
the University of Richmond in avoidance of Mr. Overcash.
I took Biology at Richmond in the summer of 1962 and
the first question posed to the class by the professor was, “Is
there anyone here from Hampden-Sydney?” I spoke up in the
affirmative and feel that answer assured a passing grade.
So the science problem was solvable with careful
selection of classes, professors, and venues. Another problem
for some of us was Algebra — another necessary evil for
graduation. The solution here was offered by Dr. Elliot, who
returned from a stroke and taught Algebra our Senior year.
Most of us who needed the class passed. Throughout our stay
at H-SC we were fortunate in having professors who would
give help where needed and realized that a good lawyer need
not be a Calculus whiz or fluent in German.
We also had a Classical Language requirement.
Most of us took Latin, giving many of us exposure to Dr.
Graves Thompson, certainly one of the finest and kindest of
professors. A few hardy souls, usually pre-ministerial students,
took Greek. Sadly the Classical Language requirement was
eliminated in the early 1970s.
Philosophy was also a requirement for the BA degree
and many of us were in Dr. Allan’s class. I was thoroughly
confused most of the time, but have one memory worth
relating. The story may or may not be true (I think it is), but
an H-SC contemporary of ours, not in the Class of 1964, was
reputed to come to class, wait while Dr. Allan checked him on
the roll, then casually jump out the window at the back of the
class room True or not, it’s a good story and quite possible.
We all took a broad range of classes at H-SC. I
have always enjoyed telling non H-SC acquaintances that
I took so many different and interesting classes — ranging
from German to Philosophy to Differential Equations to
Shakespeare, Did we graduate as ‘Jacks of all Trades, Masters
of None?’ I think not. The world is a complicated place, much
more so in 2014 than in 1964, and our stay at HampdenSydney, with its wide range of classes and experiences, well
prepared us for coping with it.
Three words or phrases that come to mind when
thinking of Hampden-Sydney in the early 1960’s are Austerity,
Imagination, and a Deck of Cards. We all encountered
austerity in our time in Venable, Graham, and Cushing. In
Cushing’s First and Fourth Passages the showers were located
on the first floor of a four story building. I don’t remember
where the showers were in Second and third passages, nor do
I recall their locations in Graham and Venable. My most vivid
memory of Venable is the very lengthy and very noisy Fourth
Floor. The Fourth Floor was not good for sleep or study,
but was great for making friends. Amenities — who needed
amenities at Hampden-Sydney?? I used to say that all I took
to Hampden-Sydney was a foot locker and a toothbrush —
perhaps an exaggeration, but if you add in a cake of soap and a
towel, you have what sustained most of us. And television — I
do not remember anyone with a TV in their room. When one
of the new Carpenter Dorms opened on a football weekend, I
wandered in and encountered a student. I asked how he liked
his new air conditioned dormitory. His response was “It’s OK,
but they haven’t hooked up the Cable TV.”
What about imagination? Well, in austere conditions,
Imagination is a great aid to survival. And H-SC abounded in
imaginative young men. As a freshman I remember observing
a foursome drinking coffee in the Venable commons. Included
in the group were Charlie Sears, Charlie Hubbard, Tom
Andrews, and Don Swift. What they were discussing (plotting
is probably the better term) was not for a lovely freshman to
know. But imagination was at work there. And imagination
was always at work with students asking professors to delay
a test or assignment. And imagination was certainly needed
when persuading Mrs. Ward that we were too ill to go to class
on test day. Imagination was not absolutely necessary for
survival at H-SC, but it helped.
Finally, how does a “Deck of Cards” fit in? Bridge
and Poker were always available at H-SC and my feeling is
that the great majority of good card players at H-SC have done
well in life. The good card players did not all pursue good
grades, but the mental agility acquired and required in Bridge
and Poker served them well over the years. When I arrived at
H-SC, upperclassmen Charles Sears and Art Matney invited
Freshmen into the Poker Game. It took me about a half hour
to realize who the winners (Charles and Art) and losers (most
of the Freshmen participants) were. As to Bridge, I was an
occasional participant when a threesome could find no other
Fourth. My main problem was not realizing that Bridge and
9
Beer were not good partners. The result was often an inability
to distinguish the Hearts from the Diamonds.
To summarize, life was much simpler in the early
1960s than it is now. We succeeded because we did not view
our living conditions as austere, and we used our imaginations.
And, lastly, some of us knew what to do with a Deck of Cards!

Undergraduate Degree: BS—Modern European History
Currently: Retired
H-SC Value: 1. Though it only became apparent over time
(that is more than a “catchphrase”) the extraordinary benefits
of a liberal arts education.
2. Focus on basics of English, history & literature of different
countries, opportunity to be highly flexible in focus of studies
(e.g. my B.S. in Modern European History and lacking only
one other course for a minor in Religion).
3. How especially unique it was to live in a culture where we
could trust one another not to “lie, cheat or steal or tolerate
those who did.”
Favorite H-SC Story or Memory: Like most of us my fondest
memories are of fellow students in all class levels. With only
slightly over 400 total in ’60–’64 while I was on campus, it
was possible to know (at least by name) a significant portion.
A unique memory which will stick with me forever
is the close interaction with faculty, e.g. (1) doing low level

bonds. For a period I was the OTC trader there making net
markets in local stocks. In 1972 I left Craigie and joined the
NYSE firm of Branch, Cabell & Co to sell stocks and bonds.
In 1974 with the stock market at all time lows and Watergate,
I left the brokerage business and joined United VA Bank as a
Trust Representative to sell trust and investment management
services. After several years I transferred over to personal trust
as a trust officer where I handled trust, custody and agency
accounts and settled estates. With my investment background,
I transferred to the investment advisory division of United
VA Bank known as Capitoline, Inc. to handle individual,
corporate and foundation accounts.
In 1990, I joined the investment advisory firm of
Kanawha Capital Management as Managing Director. When I
joined the firm it had $80 MM under management and it has
grown to $750MM now, and I am still employed managing
client assets, handling clients family financial matters and
managing private foundations.
Undergraduate Degree: BS
Currently: Working
Professional History: 2 days after graduating from H-SC,
I enlisted in the US Coast Guard Reserve for 6 years to
complete my required military obligation. I was sent to Boot
Camp at Cape May, NJ for 3 months. Upon completion of
Boot Camp, I was assigned to the US Coast Guard Cutter
Tanager for Atlantic Sea duty for three months, and then spent
5 1/2 years in the active reserve and received my honorable
discharge in 1970.
In Dec of ’64, I joined First & Merchants National
Bank in their officer training program which I applied for
on campus. I was a loan officer and credit analyst there for
3 years. While at First &Merchants I took graduate courses
at University of Richmond evening school in Economics,
Investment Analysis, Accounting and Marketing. In 1968 I
joined Craigie, Inc. as an investment broker selling stocks and

H-SC Value: H-SC taught me how to get along with all types
of personalties in people. It also taught me to study hard and
persevere in courses I did not like such as French, German,
Old Testament and Calculus. I received a good background
and interest in History from Dr. Coyner which is still one of
my interests. I majored in Biology under Overcash and spend
time and enjoyment in that area of learning. I missed having
studies in finance, accounting and investment analysis which is
now available at H-SC. I earmark many of my college gifts to
the Business studies area.
Special Honors or Recognition:

Professional History: After law school at the University, I
worked briefly in the Virginia Governor’s Office before
moving to Columbus, Ohio, to work for the Nationwide
Insurance Companies as a “Jr. Attorney” (a title I later
abolished from the staff titles). I spent my 30 year legal career
with Nationwide, taking early retirement from the position of
Senior Vice President and General Counsel.
Special Honors or Recognition: 1963 Co-Captain H-SC
Football Team, 1964 Gammon Cup, 1964 BA HampdenSydney College, 1968 LLB University of Virginia Law School
1970 Married Janet E. Ward, Two children and three
grandchildren, All else is of lesser importance.
Civic Organizations/Volunteer Work:
Member of the Ohio Chamber of Commerce, trustee of the
Ohio Historical Society Development Committee, President
of University Club of Columbus, board member of the
Franklin County Alcohol, Drug, and Mental Health Services
Travel, excursions, experiences, etc.: Having been raised in
Farmville and attending Hampden-Sydney I spent my first
25 years close to home. Football away games were the extent
of my travel. As a transactional lawyer with the Nationwide
Companies I traveled extensively in the US. Since my
16
retirement wanderlust has really kicked in, and I have traveled
to over 70 countries — but who is counting. I guess being a
Farmville resident was not the travel inhibitor I once thought
it was.
Favorite H-SC Story or Memory: So many memories from the
CIR to Three-and-a-half.
One of the things that I remember is the bell that
started and ended each class. It was rung by hand. If you were
running late to class the bell ringer would see you hurrying
toward Morton Hall and continue to ring the bell an extra
long time to be sure you could be in class (and not tardy)
before the bell stopped.
On one occasion a student beside me in Dr. Graves
Thompson’s Latin Class was asked to translate in class. Using
a translation that we students referred to as a pony, he used
the word “thrice” in his translation. Dr. Thompson asked him
what “thrice” meant. Unable to define thrice, the student was
urged by Dr. Thompson to “Ride on.” The class exploded in
laughter.

was working when we heard the bell ring at midnight. After
college, I went to Rutgers University to get a banking degree
and one of the requirements was to write a thesis. I was
appalled to hear some of the students freely admit to having
someone write their thesis and not have a whit of guilt about it.
There was no honor code in place there. I am proud that H-SC
has retained this tradition of honor.
Undergraduate Degree: BA, History
Currently: Retired
Professional History: Recruited on campus by Humble Oil,
now Exxon Mobil, but soon switched careers to banking in
Norfolk. Had a 34 year career starting as management trainee
and ending as Executive VP–Retail. I had numerous fulfilling
positions along the way as the bank grew and changed names
from Seaboard Citizens to United VA to Crestar to Suntrust.
Travel, excursions, experiences, etc.: Cindy and I have traveled
broadly before and after retirement. We often took and still
do take, our daughter along and we especially like visiting
developing countries and learning about other cultures. We
recently visited Malayasia, Viet Nam, and Cambodia.
Civic Organizations/Volunteer Work:
As expected, banks encouraged their people to get involved
in the community. I volunteered and had leadership positions
in Rotary, Kiwanis, United Way, Virginia Stage Company,
Urban League. I was also active in the VA Beach Jaycees and
then the Hampton Roads Chamber of Commerce serving
as Chairman of the VA Beach division. For many years, I
participated in H-SC phone-a-thons to raise money for the
general fund. After retirement, I have been particularly active
as the founding chairman of the Friends of the Middle River,
helping to preserve and protect the river.
Favorite H-SC Story or Memory: I have too many memories
and stories to pick just one. As a freshman, we were assigned to
guard the campus the night before the Macon game. Several
of us were at the intramural field entrance to the campus,
stopping cars to ensure no Macon boys were trying to paint
the road. A couple of the townies from Farmville rode up, a
bit drunk, and when we stopped them, one of them pulled
a shotgun on us. It was a tense moment until Jim Douthat
jumped the guy and wrestled the shotgun away, but not
before it discharged in the ground. On a lighter note, we had
wonderful living room concerts at the KA house and one of
the best was when Bo Diddley played. Great fun and a great
recruiting tool for new pledges.
H-SC Value: The honor code was and still is a value I will
always cherish. I had attended a day prep school before
attending college and it had the same code so I was prepared

H-SC Value: As we all know H-SC is a liberal arts college and
with a liberal arts degree one can learn many things about
many things. I majored in History and believe it or not I
stayed away from Bagby and never entered the building. All
my math and science courses were either at Longwood or
Roanoke College. I thank H-SC for giving me a well rounded
education and I tell potential students that the biggest problem
a college student has is not the courses but making the best use
of his free time. No parents around to tell you when to study.
H-SC provides a top notch education and makes one realize
just how important a good education is. Learning doesn’t stop
at H-SC but learning continues after we graduate.

Pacific and one of my favorite places was the island of Tonga.
Tonga was the last territory to be released from British control.
The people there are known as the friendly people. I stayed
at the International Dateline Hotel. This island is close to the
international dateline and you could be walking on the beach
on a given day and look out at the ocean and be looking at
the next day. The hotel had a flat roof and on the top of the
roof there must have been 10 flag poles spread apart about 12
feet. When I arrived at the hotel I didn’t notice until after I
checked in that the only flag flying was the American Flag
and was being flown in my honor. I was the only guest at the
hotel therefore there were no other flags flying. Two days later
a couple from Australia checked in and the Australian flag was
flying beside Old glory. When I checked out the cab driver
had me look out the window at the hotel and I noticed the flag
was being lowered that was flown in my honor. I will never
forget it and said to the cab driver “they will never believe this
back in the states.” Oh I forgot to mention 50 years prior to
my visit these people inTonga were cannibalistic. Fortunately
I did not end out in some huge pot with potatoes floating next
to my ears.
I made a trip to Jamaica and stayed on the opposite
side from Kingston. There was no major airport. I was
scheduled to leave on a certain day and was told that day was
a national holiday and the small airport near by was closed.
However one plane would stop over at a certain time and I
was to walk out on the runway and flag the plane down as
he flew over or otherwise the pilot may not land. There was
no one at the airport when I got there and I did what I was
told. Talking about feeling awkward and alone. As I said the
airport was closed and I stood out on the runway alone. Being
early morning there was nobody working and again it was a
national holiday. So I sat down on my suit case and waited
about 20 minutes out on the runway. The pilot did land and
there were two people in the back seat and the pilot and myself
in the front. Once airborne the pilot asked me to hold on to
the steering wheel (I guess you call it that) while he worked on
his radio. He added don’t move the wheel in any direction and
if we hit a rough draft he would take over. Just don’t move the
wheel. I guess I flew that plane for several minutes and made
the mistake of leaning over to look out the windows causing
the steering wheel to move forward which caused the plane to
take a little dive. The pilot took the wheel and I did hear softly
from him a few choice words. My flying experience was over.
I have been fortunate over the last 50 years. I have seen many
parts of the world and there have been many places I have not
seen. I learned we live in the greatest country in the world.
Poverty — we have no poverty in this country compared to
many places. Our poor people live like kings compared to
many people in the world.
Favorite H-SC Story or Memory: During the months of January
and February when I was at H-SC not much went on socially
during this time of the year. Unlike the fall of the year there
was no Homecoming, Football Games or Parents Weekends
so my fraternity — Lambda Chi Alpha — would have a
record party on Saturday nights — we would get our dates
from Longwood, bring them out to the house — and then
return them to Longwood at the proper time. This got to be a
routine, such that somebody — not me — suggested that we
play ‘PIG NIGHT’. We were to go to Longwood and get the
ugliest girls we could find and bring them out to the house.
We would not embarrass the girls in front of them and after
returning them to Longwood come back to the house and see
who won.
Well we learned that you can’t judge a book by the
cover. We all admitted we had a good time and there was this
guilty feeling. We really had a nice time. All we had to do was
keep what we did a secret. There was nothing confidential then
as there is nothing confidential today. Somebody spilled the
beans and the word got back to Longwood and we were black
balled for several weeks. Two months I think. I do remember
one of the brothers going to Longwood and picking up his
date at South Cunningham and he got drenched with water
balloons on his way up the steps to the entrance.
Not all of the brothers took part. Some left campus
for the weekend but the ones who stayed probably wished they
had gone after the beating we took at Longwood.

CUSHING INTERNATIONAL RACEWAY
In the spring of 1962, some of the first passage lads of
Cushing Dormitory had a new idea for entertainment.
Civic Organizations/Volunteer Work:
• Kiwanis Club, 9 years
• Read to 1st graders twice a month
• Third Presbyterian Church: Usher,
• 55ers Golf Group
• Blazers Golf Group
26
With a bit of preliminary planning, a date was set
to have car races around the oval parking lot and
driveway in front of Cushing. The cars would start at
the fork of the driveway leading to the dormitory and
finish at the fork. All cars that were parked in front
of Cushing had to be moved to another location. The
first year’s race had about seven or eight contestants
who raced the oval one at a time. Fontaine Lawson
was the flag man who was assisted by a clock man to
determine the winner. It was quite exciting watching
the contestants speed around the oval.
The first year’s race was so successful that we
followed it with another race a year later.
As the picture notes, Fontaine the Flag Man
was waving Fearless Freddie Reed to a run. The
absolute highlight, however, was when George Macon
entered the race in his blue two door Nash Rambler.
His co-pilot was Skipper Beck. George peeled out from
the start line racing past Cushing and entering the
hairpin turn at the end of the parking lot. Wanting
to break the C.I.R. record, George went firing into
the turn! So fast was the Rambler going that it flipped
over and came to a rest upside down! The crowd was
speechless and fearing the worst! Before the spectators
could arrive at the scene, George and Skipper climbed
out and waved to the crowd. That was quite a finish to
the second annual C.I.R.
At the end of my sophomore year (1962). I got
a crazy idea to peroxide my hair. I did this after exams
while awaiting my mother’s arrival to pick me up for a
VA Beach vacation. When she pulled up to Cushing,
I leaned out of the window and waved. I thought she
was going to crash the car! From a normal light brown
to a bright yellow, I must have looked really weird! My
Mother, of course, was shocked and quite upset.
When we arrived in Richmond, she took me
to a Thalheimer’s beauty salon to rectify the situation.
Having one of those hairdryer contraptions over my
head was humiliating! It worked, however, until the
next day. After jumping into the ocean, the salt and
sunshine brought out another color! It took a month
and a half to get back to normal!!
I played basketball my first three years. I did
not start or play that much, as I was not one of the
stars. I do remember getting into a game late against
Fort Lee in their Invitational Tournament. I had to
guard none other than Lenny Wilkins who later played
in the Pro’s and ultimately coached a Pro team! He was
quick as a cat and left me behind! That was quite an
experience.

* Deceased, 1966
Memory provided by McGuire Boyd
Phil, a graduate of R. E. Lee High School of Staunton, was
an influential, talented, and popular member of the Class of
1964 who lost his life in 1966 to a deadly infection that set in
after an automobile accident. At that time Phil was enrolled
in the Washington & Lee Law School.
During his four years at Hampden-Sydney, Phil
made his mark in many areas. He was a good student and a
member of Pika Fraternity. He excelled in athletics. A four
year member of the basketball team, Phil was Co-Captain
with Mike Crone his senior year and was awarded team
MVP honor that year. Phil was an excellent golfer and a
member of the college team. Away from competitive sports,
Phil was always available for bridge in Fourth Passage and
was also always available for tree golf.
Phil’s life was far too short but it was a rich and
productive one. Indicative of the esteem he was held in,
fraternity brother Joe Tuck, H-SC 1966, named a son after
Phil.

Family Life: My wife, Sue, died in 2007. I have a lady
friend, Jean Willson.
During my junior year I had quite an experience with
my one foray into school sports. One of the members
of the wrestling team was injured, and somehow I
was drafted to take his place. Coach Fulton had me
practice for a week, all the while losing weight from my
already skinny body to make the weight class.
Children:
Rob — family currently lives in Switzerland
Laura — family lives in Charleston, WV
Scott — family lives in Decatur, GA
When the night came for the match I was primed and
ready to go. Then it all became a surreal experience,
seemingly in slow motion. Just as I was going out
onto the mat, coach told me that my opponent was
the division champion. At the same time my brother,
Jamie ’66, and assorted friends started stomping the
stands and yelling for me as though I was some sort of
big deal wrestler. My champion opponent kept looking
over his shoulder wondering who is this guy! For my
part all I could think was holy cow (only it wasn’t
“cow”), what have I gotten myself into?

For the first minute or so we danced around each other
on the mat with everyone shouting encouragement
and raising a ruckus for me. My champion opponent
was thinking I might be a worthy opponent, and
me thinking this guy is going to kill me. The referee
became very frustrated with us and gave us both

warnings to stop dancing and start wrestling.
Finally, I made a move for his legs in an attempted
takedown. The next thing I know I was in some kind
of pretzel hold and could not move. He soon pinned
me and my wrestling career was over! Later in the
evening we had a chance to introduce ourselves and
talk. We both had a good laugh!

MR. GEORGE FAIRFAX PERKINS
* Deceased, 2011
Memory provided by McGuire Boyd
George Fairfax Perkins was one of the most popular and fun
loving members of our Class. George came to H-SC from
Petersburg High School for early football practice in 1960
and was an outstanding player for four years. He served as
co-captain with Sidney Druen his senior year. George was a
member of PIKA and he and Tom Wood were roommates
for four years. While at H-SC George managed to find time
for hunting, especially during deer season. George was an
outdoorsman in all respects and once left school to fight a
major forest fire in Bedford County.
George and his high school sweetheart, Janice,
were married in June, 1964 and lived at H-SC for several
years after graduation while George served as an assistant
football coach. For a while Janice and George lived in the
Alamo, which has since been razed. During this time George
began his career in insurance and financial services. After
a few years at H-SC, George moved to Charlottesville and
expanded his financial activities into Perkins Financial
Services. Janice and George’s family grew during these
years with son Paul, daughter Whitney, and a number of
grandchildren. About 10 years ago, Janice and George moved
to a house that George built on the outskirts of Gordonsville.
For all these years George was a faithful supporter of
Hampden-Sydney, especially in attendance at football games
and Alumni College.
Unfortunately, George contracted a rare blood
disease, eventually succumbing in August, 2011. Janice also
passed away, about 18 months later, in February of 2013.
George was a true Tiger and is much missed by teammates
and classmates.

training for Francis I duPont in 1970 after 2 years in sales.
When I reported to training in NY I was advised that the

morning of Thanksgiving Eve 1970, I was told not to report to
work on Friday because the company has gone out of business.
Later in the same day I received a call that I was to report to
work on Friday as Ross Perot had taken over the company.
This was the first year of a 38-year career in branch
management, almost all of which was with Smith Barney
in NY City. I retired in 2010, after which I did brief stint

Copenhagen and Ireland for visits to past lives and Machu
Picchu for the site and constructions of the Incas.
Favorite H-SC Story or Memory: Four of us were sitting out
front of Cushing Hall waiting for our ride to Florida for spring
break, when the phone rang. I came back and told my three
friends that the guys from William and Mary that were going
39
to drive us, were not able to go.
We looked around and realized that we were the last
people on campus. One of my friends said the trip is over and
he is going home.
I said wait a minute, all we need is a car. I was
reminded that everyone had left. I knew the guys in the
kitchen had not gone.
I went over and asked the few remaining if anyone
had a car I could borrow for a few days. Jimmy said he had a
car that was very old next to a very old house. I asked Jimmy
to sign on a scrap of paper that I had permission to drive his
car. He said he could not write. My reply was that an x would
be sufficient.
We were elated to have “wheels”, until we saw the car.
It was awful, with a trunk that would not shut and stuck in 6
inches of mud, and no battery.
We found a battery and told the dozen children who
had gathered around, to step back as we prepared to start the
car.
The engine roared, and from the rear of the car came
a plume of blue smoke that engulfed every one, to the delight
of all the children.
We proceeded to the junk yard to get six out of date
license tags that we hooked onto the trunk with a coat hanger.
Their were some issues with the car. The tires were bald, we
replaced eight tires that went flat, with used tires we found
behind gas stations. It burnt a lot of oil. We put 32 quarts
of used oil in the car. The fact that a sharp push on the gas
caused the back seat area to fill up with blue smoke was very
helpful in my effort to control those recalcitrant passengers
who had been over served.
When we rolled into Daytona it was early evening
and our headlights did not work.
The police pulled us over and asked to see the
registration. I gave him the scrap of paper with the x. He did
not look too pleased after seeing this, and less so when he
looked in the trunk and noticed six way out-of-date license
plates from six different states. The officer said we were to
follow him to the station. As the police started to enter the
parking lot, their battery died. We all jumped out and pushed
their car into the lot.
Both officers were very happy and said that we did
not have to come into the station, but they insisted that we get
our car off of the street.
One of our fraternity brothers asked me if he could
get a ride back in our car. I said better than that, why don’t
you drive it back—and he did. I found another ride with
someone driving a Volkswagon and had a very long nap in the
back seat.

and rent our house, in case I was unsuccessful in my
studies. I contacted Hampden-Sydney, and the Dean
of Admissions suggested that I come to take some
tests and be interviewed. We made the trip in June,
and while we were there we rented a house from P. T.
Atkinson, subject to my being accepted as a student. I
took the College Boards, told them that I had made 2
A’s and 2 B’s on my college courses in Hagerstown, and
in a few weeks Dean Crawley called and told me that I
had been accepted at Hampden-Sydney, and I told him
that I would be there in August for football practice.
He advised against it, and said that I would have all
I could do to keep up with my class work; but, I told
him that I would need the exercise and had always
dreamed of playing football and baseball in college.
I sold my business, we rented our house to a
schoolteacher, and in August of 1960, we loaded our
furniture on two of my trucks and headed for H-SC.
The first person to greet me on campus, as I was
unloading at the Atkinson property in Black Bottom,
was Dr. Thomas Gilmer, the president of the College.
He became a friend and confidant, and gave me good
advice always.

Favorite H-SC Story or Memory: The Road to becoming
a Presbyterian Minister…How God Worked It Out
One evening my phone rang and it was my
pastor, Reuben Sulc. He informed me that Henry P.
Bridges had died and left a Trust Fund of $800,000 to
educate anyone who wanted to go into the Presbyterian
Ministry, all expenses paid. The stipulations were that
the student must attend either Hampden-Sydney or
Davidson College, and then go to Union Theological
Seminary in Richmond, VA. That eliminated the first
hurdle that I had to cross on the road to the ministry.
I took classes at Hagerstown Junior College
to convince myself and others that I could do college
work. Nancy proposed that I go to Hampden-Sydney,
and that she stay in Hancock for the first year to
see how I did. I told her that would be unacceptable
41
had imagined. I was 34 years old and not accustomed
to the heat, but I survived and dropped about 15
pounds and weighed in at 230 pounds before our first
game in September. I was very disappointed that I did
not make the starting team, warming the bench until
our game at Bridgewater in October.
At halftime of the Bridgewater game, we were
losing 13–7, and in the locker room Stokley Fulton, our
coach made a threatening speech to the starting team.
He said that Bridgewater had never beaten HampdenSydney, and if our team did not score the first time
we got the ball in the second half, that he was sending
in the scrubs — that included me. We did not score,
so he sent the scrubs in. We scored on the first play
from scrimmage through the number 2 hole that the
center and I opened up wide enough for a truck to go
through. I can still feel the Bridgewater player trying
to stop my forward and to the right surge, that ended
when he hit the ground and I charged over the top
of him, and our running back went 56 yards for a
touchdown. On the ensuing kickoff, I was hit by two
opposing players, determined, no doubt, to put me
out of the game. One hit me low in the knees and the
other gave me an elbow to the jaw. Blood was gushing
out where my tooth had come out through my lip and
cheek area. The first offensive team came on the field
and as I trotted off, Dr. Moore came over to examine
the extent of my injury. Two stitches and a band aide
solved the problem and I was ready to go back into the
game if needed. I was not needed, however, because
we continued to lead in scoring and won the game by
two touchdowns — but that was the last playing time
for me in football at Hampden-Sydney. I played in
the Freshman games, but not the varsity. Nancy heard
that the reason was that the staff was afraid that I may
be seriously injured, since I was “an old man” playing
with boys.
The winter of 1960–61 was spent in studying,
fighting an asthmatic condition, trying to be a good
husband and father, and wrestling and running to
keep in shape for baseball in the spring and football
in the fall. In the spring, having passed all my first
semester subjects, I began baseball practice and make
the starting team as a catcher-outfielder. The first game
was in North Carolina at Davidson College. I played
right field and had two hits, one of them a home run.
I was the catcher in the next game and had two hits,
a single and a double. The next game was at home
against Harvard, and I was benched by Bill Pegram,
our coach, for no reason that I knew. I fumed on the
bench for 6 innings, and when I was called on the
pinch hit in the last inning, I was so frustrated and I
struck out. I did not need that kind of aggravation and
humiliation, so that was the end of my baseball career.
I quit, and the coach did not even ask me why!
The first year of college was difficult, and
I confessed to Dr. Lacey, the pastor at College
Church and former President of Union Seminary
in Richmond, that I was drying up spiritually. The
Bible Course that I took was all academic, and left me
disappointed and angry at the professor. Dr. Gilmer
called me into his office to talk about the professor’s
complaint against me that I was disturbing the
class with my challenging him in regard to biblical
inspiration, and the next Sunday in the Bible Class
at College Church, Dr. Gilmer, the president of the
College and the teacher of the class was challenged by
the Bible professor, who claimed that Dr. Gilmer was
interpreting the passage too literally. Dr. Gilmer asked
the question of the professor, “Do I have to call you
on Saturday before I teach on Sunday, so that I can
be sure that a passage of scripture from the Bible is or
is not to be taken literally?” I will always believe that
Dr. Gilmer did that for my benefit, because when our
conversation came to an end in his office he told me to
keep doing what I was doing in the Bible Class.
The solution to my spiritual dryness came
a few weeks later when Dr. Lacey and a blind man
named John Cunningham came to visit me to ask if I
would become Student supply at four small churches
in a cluster within a 10 mile radius of HampdenSydney. I began to preach twice a week, visit the
sick and, with Nancy’s help, have a combined Youth
Fellowship once a month.
The first year at college was also a financial
challenge. The schools were closed in Prince Edward
and we had to pay tuition for our two children to
attend school. The house we lived in, down in Black
Bottom, was not fit for human habitation. Everything
was moldy: shoes turned green in a few days if you
kept them in the closet and there was always a musty
smell. I worked in the Chemistry Lab in addition to
the four Pamplin area Presbyterian churches. When
Nancy received her portion from the sale of land
inherited from her parents, we decided to use it as a
down payment to build a house on campus.
I continued to preach for the four churches
until I graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor of
Arts degree in 1964. We made a host of lifetime
friends. After I retired I was asked to preach at one
of those churches on the first Sunday of each month.
I continued that service to Concord Presbyterian
42
Church for over 10 years.
Only the good Lord could have worked it all
out in 1961, to keep me in the bible, to give me the
experience I needed in ministry at the time, and to
confirm my call to the pastorate.
Our English professor in the 60’s was always
going around the class asking questions. If one student
did not know the answer, he would go to the next, and
then to the next, until someone knew the answer.
Every time he asked a certain student he would
not be able to answer, shake his head and say, “I have it
in my notebook.”
Finally, after about six times answering “I’ve
got it in my notebook,” the professor replied:
“One day you are going before the Judgment
Bar and you will be asked: “Why should I let you into
my heaven?” Your are going to answer, “I’ve got it in
my notebook!” And, that answer will not be good
enough.”

Children: Three children. Nine grandchildren.
The general assembly established a system of
“regional” juvenile and domestic relations courts in the late
’60s. When the Tenth Regional J&DR Court was established
(covering two counties and a city in my area), I threw my
name in the hat and was appointed. You lawyers will recall
that WAY BACK THEN, you could still practice law and be
a judge—except for courts of record. So, for several years, I
practiced law and had three “judgeships”. In the early ’70s the
law changed requiring all judges to be full time. I took the
position on the J&DR bench.
In 1985 a position became available on the circuit
court. I put my name in the hat for it and was appointed
by the governor (interim) and then elected by the general
assembly. I held that position until my retirement in 2001.
Since then I have been so busy I don’t know when
I had time to work. I have continued to do designated court
work for other judges throughout the commonwealth. (Was
averaging about three days a week at that until recently
when I realized I could “just say no”) Used to go to Staunton
frequently to sit in for my good friend and colleague/classmate
and fraternity brother, Judge Tom Wood. He was an excellent,
well-respected judge.
I also have my own mediation/arbitration business
which I formed with another retired judge. I have been doing
that, as well, since retirement.

Professional History: Got a “Kennedy deferral” from the
military, as I was surely headed to Viet Nam, and “walked on”
at the University of Tennessee where a very sympathetic dean
allowed me to enter his law school, though I had questionable
credentials. His faith was restored when I graduated there
in ’67. I went home, to Abingdon, VA, where a successful
attorney, and member of the Virginia General Assembly, took
me under his wing. I was given a cubby hole in between his
office and that of the commonwealth’s attorney. I was fed cases
from both sides. It was indoctrination by fire, but it served
me well and paid the bills. I did the gamut; civil, criminal,
domestic, real estate, wills, etc.—a typical small town practice
back then. My mentor and I soon built us an office building
a block from the courthouse. We enjoyed a very pleasant and
successful practice together.
WAY BACK THEN some towns had “Mayor’s
Court.” (The mayors actually tried town offenses) I was soon
hired to be the “judge” for towns of Abingdon and Damascus.

a drink and a snack. I remember well a tall black gentleman
who used to walk about campus carrying an axe. His name
was Francis. He just smiled and never said anything. We
called him Francis the Axe Man. Some of the Kappa Sigs were
known to take him with them to “The Wood” to pick up their
date!! I will never forget us making the national news my first
semester with the food fight in the commons. State police were
called in.
And do you guys remember the C I R? Cushing
International Raceway. Yeah, guys used to race their cars
around that circle. (You could always count on catching
a “moon” or two from the upper windows of Cushing for
added excitement!) Had a couple of rollovers, but “nobody got
hurt.” Oh how I remember the frat parties—particularly after
ballgames. Sometimes there was a band playing at every house.
So much fun roaming from one to one with your date. Any
of you guys remember the intramural field parking lot?? We
won’t talk about that. And, yes, I do remember some things
about the academics. Mostly that I was turned away from
my lifelong ambition of becoming a doctor by the infamous
Dr. Thompson’s freshman chemistry class. Oh well, they say
everything happens for a reason. Guess he did me a favor. I
remember “The Wood” so well. Spent enough time there to
have received some kind of degree. And how about standing
on the corner at the post office in Farmville in order to catch a
ride back to “The Hill.” Never failed.
H-SC Value: The H-SC honor system above all. It was instilled
in us at orientation and made a lasting impression on me.
Other schools have an honor system in name, but at H-SC
it really works.(At least it did WAY BACK THEN.) My first
semester three seniors were kicked out—two for cheating
and one for not telling. Think that doesn’t make a lasting
impression on an incoming freshman? I think the honor
system helped make me a better person.
Special Honors or Recognition: Chairman—Administrative
Board Abingdon United Methodist Church.
President—Abingdon Jaycees
Outstanding young man of Washington County
Travel, excursions, experiences, etc.: Stay pretty close to home.
Have not traveled much at all. Have gone to Colorado to
ski for years. Went to the Baja for a week long dirt bike ride
with my sons a few years back. (Always been a motorcycle
enthusiast. Rode a Harley until recently.) Enjoy a reunion with
my two old H-SC roomies, Nat Jobe and Mike Crone a couple
of times a year.
Not proud of my domestic record. Been married and
divorced twice. Single now living alone with my dog. Three
wonderful, successful children by my first wife. Guess my
fondest memories over the past 50 years has been their births
and watching them grow up, marry, succeed and give me
grandchildren.
Favorite H-SC Story or Memory: Too many to mention. I
remember the freshman hazing—the beanies, the signs around
our necks, the midnight runs to the “corner”, the licks on the
butt. One special night some freshmen barricaded themselves
in their rooms. This did not deter the upper classmen. They
simply went to the attic and came down through the ceiling. I
remember one night one of our counselors came in to discover
his room had been moved outside—everything! Down to
his clothes, books and a lamp which was politely burning.
I remember the beautiful Saturday afternoons sitting on a
blanket on the bank with a date watching the Tigers play. All
the guys dressed out in coats and ties and the ladies in their
finest. (Boy would we be out of place today.) I remember well
the nightly jaunts to the college shop to see Reggie and get

THE HONORABLE THOMAS H. WOOD, SR.
Died, January 14, 2011
Appreciation to Helen Gay who provided this information on Tom.
Spouse: Helen Gay
Children: Tom and Helen Gay had three children, one
boy and two girls. All finished college — two at the
University of Virginia, and one at Randolph Macon
(yes, that Randolph Macon!) Seven grandchildren
completed the extended family.
thorough preparation prior to trial and aggressive but
respectful representation of his clients.
As a Judge, Tom knew the law and expected
no less of the attorneys appearing before him. He
treated all before him, attorneys and parties alike, with
consideration and respect.
While his knowledge of the applicable law was
exemplary, Tom’s greatest attribute as a Judge was his
understanding of the people before him. He knew that
stress could produce and expose great fear and lack of
reason. He knew also it could produce great strength
and resolve. He knew that circumstances could bring
out qualities in people that day-to-day situations kept
dormant. He understood that people were human and
they should be treated with respect even though they
had to be accountable for their actions. He knew that
one punishment did not fit all. Each case stood on its
own.
Professional History: Following his graduation from
Hampden-Sydney College, Tom attended and
graduated from Law School at the University of
Virginia, after which he and Helen Gay moved their
family to Staunton, Virginia. He joined the firm of
Nelson, McPherson and summers. Tom eventually
became a partner in the firm. After 14 years of law
practice as a trial attorney, he was appointed Judge of
the General District Court of Staunton. “You’ve got to
learn how to play the game, before you can become a
referee.”
Tom was appointed Judge of the Circuit Court
for Augusta County in 1984, later being named Chief
Judge of the 25th Judicial District. Tom retired in
2007, but still held court as needed from time to time.
After a long illness and courageous fight with
cancer, Tom died on January 14, 2011.
As an attorney, Tom was known for his
Travel, excursions, experiences, etc.: A fair amount of
travel occupied Tom’s time away from work; some
simply for vacation and many related to visiting the
children. California, Nevada, New York, Florida, and
Germany had a look at the Woods, and vice-versa.
For some years, Tom and Helen Gay would
52
spend a week or so with friends in Florida and on
Virginia’s Eastern Shore.
Although most trips were enjoyed, they were
not without mishap. Upon returning to Dulles Airport
from California, a long search ensued to locate the
keys to the family car stuck in long-term parking.
Divorce was mentioned several times, until the keys
were located.
On another trip, on a descending escalator in
Union Station in Washington, DC, Tom dropped a
piece of luggage causing a great pile-up of people. the
only real damage was a broken bottle of Tom’s favorite
drink, which soaked his surrounding clothes. Helen
Gay washed everything out in their New York hotel
room, and hung things up to dry (to the amusement of
the hotel maids!).
No trip ended without Tom saying “I’m glad
to be home.” Home was Staunton; Home was Clifton
Forge. Tom never forgot his roots.
Tom loved Hampden-Sydney and was proud to
be a graduate.
Tom’s passions, in no particular order, were:
family, Hampden-Sydney, UVA, football, the pursuit
of law, Redskins Football, grilling red meat, a tall
bourbon and water, and golfing with his friends.
