Eric Wallace ’58

Eric Wallace, Class of 1958

“I particularly remember the Scribe newsroom and all the neat people I worked with there when I was a ‘cub’ under Mrs. Murphy, who knew how to sneakily get the best work out of her charges. She’d probably be pleased to know that despite my intentions at the time of becoming a doctor (she thought I should go into journalism, naturally), I bypassed medicine after all and ended up in TV and radio broadcasting and in writing, writing, writing all the time. It’s ironic that I had my own humor column at Tech (“The Green Blackboard”) and despite my best intentions, all these years later I still write humor now and then–and even get paid for it. Except for the getting paid part, some things never change. Except that I now have silver hair.”
