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.”
