Messenger - Vol. 2, No. 3, Page 24 Summer 1993 Lengthy legacy Two generations of Delaware graduates and a potential third were among the visitors to the campus during Legacy Day. Charles Crocker, Delaware '38, and his daughter, Linda Simmons, Delaware '75, of Arlington, Va., brought Simmons' son, Robert, a sophomore in high school, to the annual spring event. Another graduate who attended with his son, Tom Giacoponello, Delaware '71, wrote afterward, saying the visit to campus was his first in nearly 20 years: "This homecoming, of sorts, was truly uplifting. The Mall, abloom on a sunny, spring day, rekindled in me a vitality that undeniably was reflected in the faces of the current U. of D. students. It was terrific to see so much of the University as lovely as I remembered it and also to see the great strides taken to upgrade and expand the facilities....My son, while only a sophomore in high school, was impressed and now speaks of wanting to apply there as his first choice. At this time, we have not yet begun to scout other schools, but I have a feeling that my heart will encourage me to promote my alma mater to him."
