For some reason, I typed in the name of one of my college professors, from 40 years ago, Paul R. Vaulin, into a search engine. Sad to say, he died in 2007. It’s no surprise, since he was about 89 years old. Still it’s a shock when a part of my past winks out.
I have fond memories of Prof. Vaulin, under whom I studied Russian language and literature for 8 quarters. He was quite a character–a Red Army deserter during WW II, and an ardent anti-communist. He had some very interesting stories that he told in his heavy Russian accent.
