A letter from an alumnusi about
math professor Donald Spencer
January 31, 2002
With respect to the memory of an enthusiastic, devoted math teacher memorialized in the January 30 issue (Notebook), Professor Donald Spencer, may I offer the playful limerick I composed as a math major approximately in 1960:
A Fine Hall Prof named Spencer
Thank you for remembering him.
P.S.On another matter in the same issue (Talks on Campus), I recall the visit to the Princeton campus about 1960 of the Minister of Education of the Kingdom of Afghanistan, Dr. Mohammed Anas.
