Parting Shot 75 Candles Needed! This year marks the 75th anniversary of Fairleigh Dickinson University, which opened in 1942 as a junior college in Rutherford, N.J. For our history buffs, how many students were there for the first day of classes? And, in what year did the college gain “university” status? You’ll find these answers and much more in our next issue, which will celebrate FDU’s extraordinary rise and its remarkable growth. Don’t miss it! LAST ISSUE’S FLASHBACK Far From Arabia Peter O’Toole, who was in England preparing for his upcoming role as Macbeth at the Old Vic theater, was the mystery Wroxton College visitor. Many of you also recognized Dean John Seagrave, on the right. But only one identified the man on the left, W. Moelwyn Merchant, a University of Exeter English professor, Shakespeare expert and artist whose sculpture exhibit at Wroxton brought O’Toole to campus.
