This recording was conducted in the Park Alumni Center on the Centennial Campus of North Carolina State University in Raleigh, North Carolina, at the Class of 1966 "Forever Club" Reunion Luncheon hosted by the NC State Alumni Association, honoring alumni who graduated 50 years ago and earlier. In the recording, James E. Blalock (‘43) discusses: studying Aeronautical Engineering as an undergraduate student; meeting Katharine Stinson, the first female student to enroll in and graduate from the College of Engineering at NC State; living in a residence hall near the railroad tracks as a student; paying $134.90 in tuition for his first year at NC State, 1939, and listing other expenses kept in a ledger from his time as a student; growing up in Asheville, NC, and using roller skates to get around town; being involved in student groups including the Aeronautical Engineering Society, and singing in the State College Quartet; and working in Washington, DC, with the US Navy wind tunnels.
