"The time you won your town the race, we chaired you through the market place--man and boy stood cheering by...and home we brought you shoulder-high....

--Today, the roads all runners come, shoulder-high we bring you home--and set you at your threshold down...townsman of a stiller town...."

from A.E. Housman's, "To an Athlete Dying Young"

--In beloved memory of scholar and mentor, Dr. Stephen E. Ambrose, 1936-2002--
