Professor Michael Livingston welcomed to his office a group of devotees of the work of fantasy author Robert Jordan, the pen name of Citadel alumnus James Rigney '74. The reason? Why, to see the actual roll-top desk at which Mr. Rigney wrote all of his famous works, of course! It resides proudly in Prof. Livingston's new office.

We were very happy to welcome back to campus English alumni (and brothers) Franklin McGuire '14 and Thomas McGuire '16! Both were in town for the Medal of Honor Leadership and Education Center meeting held in Capers Auditorium last night. Franklin is a law student at USC Law, and Thomas runs a consulting company he and Franklin created. Both are also officers in the SC National Guard. They were outstanding students in their cadet days, and it was a pleasure to have them back on campus!
Former students of Col. Tony N. Redd joined current and former English Department faculty members on Nov. 11 to dedicate the English, Fine Arts, and Communications wing of the new Capers Hall to the memory of Professor Redd. Tony Redd taught at The Citadel from 1966 to 2006, inspiring literally thousands of cadets to an enduring love and appreciation for great literature! Thanks to Jim Koppenhaver '80 and Charles Corbin '78 for making Saturday's ceremony a reality. Tony was looking down on us from heaven and smiling at the lasting impact he made! Afterward, faculty, friends, and alumni gathered at Herd Provisions for a celebratory luncheon in Dr. Redd's memory.

Professor Michael Livingston had a great turn out this week for the presentation "Wheel of Time: Books to Film," which was held in the new Capers Hall auditorium.

Members of the English faculty at The Citadel and the College of Charleston got together on Monday for a welcome reception to kick off a new year for our Citadel-C of C joint master's program!
