Note From Kathy (Mayhew) Marks '65

Posted By Administration, Monday, April 10, 2017

I don't remember an afternoon sipping milkshakes and eating fries because I was a biology major and miner in general science, I was always in the lab. However, I fondly remember treating myself to "dinner" at Freddies, a burger and fries, on evenings before Lab Practicum or after finals. 

I certainly recall Fred DJing during my study-break. A quick "rock around the clock" before "purrs" at 9, 10, or 11 depending on your year, was my way to have something to look forward to and energy to get me through the studying I would do after I got back to the dorm. 

Historically reflecting, I also recall that Student Union was also called "The Zollars Building." It was only after my husband came to Hiram as a transfer from a branch of Ohio U that he learned the student union had been named after his great uncle, Ely Von Zollar, a former president of Hiram. At Thanksgiving, Gary went home and told his mother about the Zollars name for the Student Union. She said "oh, yes, I think he was president of Hiram." Even though Gary had wanted to go to Hiram for years, having a"memorable" fight with his father because of the high cost of $1450 per year, no one ever talked about the only member of their family to have ever graduated high school, much less tell Gary that he was president of the college where he longed to go. Zollars was an ordained Disciples minister, president of Hiram and Transylvania, and founder of Philips University. History is important! Thanks for the memories.

New Book by Roger Steck '64

Posted By Administration, Monday, April 10, 2017

      "The Mysterion Dynasty" by Roger Wells, my pen name, is now available. It is likely he first description of how the human mind operates. It changes much about what we think we know about ourselves and about governments and religions. I defines god. It perhaps will be a major book in the area of philosophy and psychology. 

     It took me 38 years to complete my books, actually 5 books in one volume. It is available from Amazon.com, iUniverse.com, BarnesandNoble.com, and soon on various e-books. It is 566 pages and notebook paper size.

     My main work was in heart research, cancer research, medical products, and automated machine design but my books are the result of an intellectual game I played to discover how the mind works because no one could ever tell me.
