|Well I studied history, started in history, and ended up wanting to be involved in education, secondary and higher,
||00:00:00.000 - 00:00:12.894
|and all my time there influenced me in that direction. Pres. William Friday was then an assistant dean of students,
||00:00:12.894 - 00:00:31.533
|and I got involved in student government and all that sort of thing and he suggested to my roommate
||00:00:31.533 - 00:00:40.677
|and to me that there was a position open at North Carolina State, the assistant dean of students here.
||00:00:40.677 - 00:00:49.521
|The dean of students-the only really dean of students-was a man named Ed Cloyd and he had been at State for a long time,
||00:00:49.521 - 00:01:02.941
|and the guy that was his assistant had been called back into the service. So my roommate wanted to go to law school,
||00:01:02.941 - 00:01:12.745
|I didn't want to go to law school, I came over and applied for the job and ultimately I got a little handwritten note from Dean Cloyd saying,
||00:01:12.745 - 00:01:21.993
|"If you want the job you can have it, starting-," date so-and-so, salary thirty-six hundred dollars.
||00:01:21.993 - 00:01:30.298
|That's the sort of thing you remember. So, here I've been most of my life.
||00:01:30.298 - 00:01:40.214
