from an alumnus about Orgo and Professor Maitland Jones
February 12, 2003
In the late '70s and early '80s my classmate, William P. Cheshire '82, and I found it a fitting stress-reliever to pay tribute to Dr. Kurt Mislow, our generation's orgo hero, by wreaking an annual havoc upon his class for three year's running (see PAW, May 19, 1980, p9 "Orgo Hijinx" and The Daily Princetonian, March 3, 1981, front page).
Among other things, we managed to commandeer the PA
system, interrupt the lecture with prerecorded audio clips including a
taped Tigertone rendition of an original tune, "Colored Chalk,"
and a flasher (wearing his picture); one year we burst into the final
exam in wild garb and did a rendition of "Deliverance" on banjo,
guitar, and harmonica. I'm sorry to hear future generations are losing
this important opportunity.
