Every Tuesday morning at the William H. Lyon Memorial Conference Lounge, retired history faculty members meet informally. The tradition began in the 1950s and had been initiated by the chair of the department, Professor William W. Tinsley. When Professor Tinsley passed away in March 1962, the new chair of the department, Professor William H. Lyon, continued the tradition. Since then, several retired sociologists have since joined the group. The group pictured here includes Professor Monte Poen, Professor Rick Tilman, Professor Dwight Mayo, Professor Arnold – A.K.A. Mike – Brown, Professor David McKell, and Professor Dennis Rusche.
