There was no paperwork!

In 1970 I ran out of money so I went to see President Gage who was also the Dean of Men to enquire if there were any student loans available. He said there were not, asked how much I needed and proceeded to pull his cheque book out of his suit coat pocket and write me his personal cheque for $ 300. There was no paperwork!

When I graduated and received my first job I wrote President Gage a heartfelt letter and enclosed my cheque for $ 400 ( the extra $ 100 was to cover “interest”). By this time I knew that President Gage personally funded students such as myself and that they numbered in the hundreds.
