Q & A With Larry Withrow '60

5/31/2004

Q) Why did you join?
A) These were the type of people that I wanted to spend time with during my college career... a place that I felt was home.

Q) Tell us about your favorite memory of the fraternity
A) My girlfriend became my wife on aNew Year's Eve my senior year. We eloped and told no one. I recieved a card that said "to my husband". I announced it to the fraternity and someone put the card on the bulletin board. My father dropped by the house a couple of weeks later and saw the card. He didn't tell my mother until Kitty and I announced it to them. That was 45 years ago.

Q) What kind of influence has the fraternity had on your life since graduation?
A) Not enough. Being 1500 miles away from Chapel Hill never helped any. I have become friends with several Sig Eps here in Kansas, one of them being Bob Fischgrund from Chapel Hill.

Q) Tell us about your family: Have you married? Do you have children?
A) Kitty and I have three living children, four grandsons counting an adopted grandson, and if you count my son's foster children... another grandson that has a daughter... somewhat making me a great grand parent.
