RDUBS post "WOODY HAYES' IMPACT ON THE B1G TODAY" is great.
Then, I started thinking...
My grandmother dated Rutherford B. Hayes' grandson. Hayes was a Union general who knew, Sherman, Sheridan and Grant - at least - who, in turn, knew Lee and Lincoln - at least.
My acting coach was Chuck Vicinus, whose drama teacher at Yale was Constance Welch (a founder of Yale Drama). Elia Kazan was her student at Yale in the 1930's. He worked with playwrights Tennessee Williams (Iowa), Arthur Miller (Michigan) - directed such works for stage and screen as, A Streetcar Named Desire, All My Sons, Death of A Salesman, On the Waterfront and East of Eden - and such actors as Marlon Brando, James Dean, Lawrence Olivier, Warren Beatty, Vivien Leigh, Julie Harris and Eva Marie Saint (BG).
It's a small world we live in...and for a very short time.
I bet some of you have fascinating trees of your own.
