While the events described above were taking place, I was finishing my lunch at the University of Arkansas Student Union Cafeteria. As I left the building, I noticed people running to and gathering around cars with radios. I got close enough to hear the news. I then continued on to my US History class in the Business Administration building. Prof. Pine and his seeing eye dog would give us a real lesson in US History that day. Shortly after class began, there was a knock on the door. Prof. Pine went to the door and heard the report from another history professor that the President was dead.
During the Summer and Fall of 1988, I had my first sabbatical of my career at the University of Arkansas. On Nov. 22, a rainy day, I took a walk about campus around 12:45, ending outside the same classroom in the Business Administration building where I had US History 25 years before. I stood and listened to the discussion. Those youngsters had no idea of what they spoke.
