Letter to Paul Gill from Joe Jacob
Many thanks for the Fr. Lange piece. It was very well written and brought
back a flood of memories. Were you in the gym the day a few timid female
graduate students (they might have been nuns) walked in and inquired if they
had found the mosquito genetics laboratory, which was next door? “Do I look
like a goddam mosquito?” was the less than cheerful reply.
Fr. Burtchaell once told me that Fr. Lange was a wonderful confessor, and
that many of the priests on campus would go to no one else.
