Goodbye, Boo

My alma mater suffered a great loss the other day. Lt Col. T.N. Courvoisie, also known as "The Boo," passed away at the age of 89. He wasn't at the school anymore when I was a cadet--he had left the year before I got there. But through Pat Conroy's characterization of him in his book "The Lords of Discipline," I felt as if I knew him--and he was a key factor in what began a love affair with my beloved school.

You can read more about him here and here.

Rest in peace, Boo. From the thousands of lambs you affected, thank you.
