Associated Press: Amherst College Honors World War II Veterans

In a piece that ran in several media outlets across the country, the AP featured Richard Hunter ’44, J. Bruce Duncan ’45, Frank R.L. Egloff ’46 and C. Burns Roehrig ’45 who finally received long-overdue diplomas at Amherst’s commencement May 22. “Of course we wanted to honor these men who gave so much to the nation,” President Anthony W. Marx told reporter Mark Pratt. “It’s a statement of pride and an acknowledgment of service.”
