“Their presence…enriched us all…”

When Gene and Buddy came to Duke, I was a resident of House H, where they would be housed their first year. Numerous preparatory meetings were held to prepare a good beginning for them. Our two new fellow residents were a joy to know. Their presence, as the first in a long and distinguished line of African-American students at Duke, enriched us all, and I only hope that we in some small way made their time at Duke better. It was way overdue, and it was an honor to be involved in it.
