Me, too. Once when I referred to him as my great uncle, he replied, "Good, perhaps, but not great."

I was just thinking of Dr.Vincent today when I found out about a memorial service for one of my English professors at Kent State University, Edgar L. McCormick. Dr. Vincent was my faculty advisor in the mid-70's and boy did I get some private lectures from him as I was an underachieving student to say the least. He was by far the most memorable college professor I had and I attended college for 10+ years at as many colleges. I'll never forget his occasional lectures where he preached the entire period never touching on the subject matter. Definitely an unforgettable man.

Was his wife named Mary? Was she born in 1903? In June? Was he born in 1899? I was recently at a flea market and purchased something that belonged to I guess mrs. Vincent. It hadd his name, Howard P. Vincent from Chicago on their too. Does this sound familiar? My email is kathrynpizzini@gmail.com. I am just curious if this belonged to them.
