Richard Schori ‘60: “I had great brothers at DTD” 

During his time at the Delta Tau Delta house, Richard Schori ‘60 says that it was known as a “jocks and leaders” house. “My favorite hangout was the living room area, where we chatted with frat brothers,” he said.  

The years at the house were filled with memories: “A favorite memory is a trip with fraternity brothers to Martha’s Vineyard. Another great memory is going with Phil Post ‘61 to Ely, Minnesota for a canoe trip.” 

He said that the parties were great — but one thing made them even more memorable. “Some of the best parties were when our mothers were there for a party.” 

“I hope traditions like singing down Middle Path never go away,” he added. 

Richard said that Walter Taylor and Jim Cox made a big impact on him during his time at Kenyon. “They were great brothers to whom I could easily relate.” 

Bill Swing ‘58 was another brother who had his back — both during his time at school and years later. “He was two years ahead of me, became an Episcopal Bishop, and was a great support in later years.” 

Richard majored in mathematics at Kenyon and then went to the University of Iowa for a master’s and Ph.D. in mathematics. “From there I spent 37 years as a mathematics professor. I taught for 14 years at LSU, then at Oregon State for 23 years. I retired in 2001 and now live in Reno, Nevada. I have a daughter and three granddaughters in Oregon.”

  1. How wonderful to hear your memories of Kenyon. your reflections bring such happy times to mind. We will be returning to Kenyon in May for a granddaughter’s graduation.
    Hope you are enjoying retirement!!

  2. Thank you Richard for remembering my father, Walter Taylor. You and I met years ago, I believe at the Episcopal Convention in Columbus, OH. My father always held you in high regard and with great respect.

    In Brotherhood,
