Yackety Yack, 1965 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Yackety Yack, 1965 Rather than attempt to list the numerous accomplishments and gifts of Mr. John Motley Morehead, I am going to try to tell something about the man as his adopted nephews saw him. The most striking quality of Mr. Morehead's was his ever abundant humor. When addressing the scholars every Octo ber, his stories and puns would bring resounding laughter which, if one thought about it long enough, could probably still be heard ringing from the marble columns and panelled walls of the beautiful Morehead Planetarium dining room. Also, if you thought long enough you might recall the joke he told about a physics professor when he was here. It seems that Mr. Morehead needed a certain grade and that that physics professor had a favorite dog, which mysteriously disappeared.
