The Youngest Son
My very favorite professor from college wrote a book. He was a Medicinal Chemistry professor, but he did not write a textbook, he wrote a memoir about his experiences while on sabbatical in Italy where he taught Medicinal Chemistry at the school of Pharmacology at the University of Pisa.
The weekend of Butler University's Homecoming, he had a book signing event. I really wanted to see him again and get my book signed. We decided to take a day-trip to Indy for the event and then go to the Children's Museum (again, no children on display, dad).
It was great seeing Dr. Salerni again. He hasn't changed at all. He is still the most popular professor at Butler, even though he has been retired and living in Florida for the past few years. As you can see from the picture, he is talking, which was one of the things Dr. Salerni was know for.
