Letter to the Editor

Nigerian remembers Taylor

Friday, April 2, 2004

To the editor:

A friend told me about the death of Herbert Taylor. I simply wept. I'm writing to acknowledge Taylor, who was not only an educator with an exceptional vision, but a mentor and a friend. As a foreign student from Nigeria, Herb welcomed me in the communications department at Southeast Missouri State University from 1983 to 1986. His contribution to the university radio station, KRCU, must never be forgotten. He was man among men. This letter is my only chance to tell the world that Herb Taylor was one in a million. May his soul rest in peace. Amen.
