Proud citizen of Oberlin, Ohio, a little whistlestop that once provided an active stop on The Underground Railroad. Oberlin College was also the first coeducational college in the US where women and men were taught in the same classroom, and the first college to admit students “irrespective of color.”
“Sometimes a man hits upon a place to which he mysteriously feels that he belongs. Here is the home he sought, and he will settle amid scenes that he has never seen before, among men he has never known, as though they were familiar to him from his birth. Here at last he finds rest."
"You can kiss your family and friends good-bye and put miles between you, but at the same time you carry them with you in your heart, your mind, your stomach, because you do not just live in a world but a world lives in you." by Frederick Beuchner
