Rather Excellent Tales: The College Years

1953: Dan Rather receives his Bachelor of Arts in Journalism from Sam Houston State University in Huntsville, TX. On October 21st, 1994, SHSU dedicated the Dan Rather Communications Building. That name's gonna be a real magnet for top-notch applicants now, eh?

FUN FACT: Huntsville is also the home of Death Row in the Texas prison system. Strangely, at an Al Gore appearance in 2000 discussing the 'troublesome' aspects of the Death Penalty, Gore was apparently expecting a call from Dan Rather. Proof that Rather was the power behind the Gore throne? Believe it...or not, makes no difference to me, either way...
