Hurricane helpers: At the height of Hurricane Floyd, the home of John Munroe, H. Rodney Sharp Professor Emeritus of History, was flooding heavily. Dorothy Munroe called Dean of Students Tim Brooks seeking assistance. Responding to the plea for help, five members of Lambda Chi Alpha fraternity raced to the Munroe residence and spent hours bailing out the basement. Gathering in the Munroe home for a picture a week after the hurricane's visit are (from left) Matt Spilich, Joshua Porter, John Munroe, Kristian Mayr, Dorothy Munroe, Alex Tweedie and Thomas Mather.
