David H. Wrinn (Class of 1973)

It was with great sadness that I and other classics alumni heard that Phil Lockhart had died. The obituary notice that the College published was apt, comprehensive, and respectful, but one had to know the man. Many will offer their tributes. I can only remark that, from the remove of my many years, I have seldom encountered an individual more humane in his dealings: inspiring with his teaching; encouraging in his advices; exercising a light hand in his criticism; and forgiving of the ways and manners of youth. Few men would dare lay claim to these attributes; fewer still could do it with Phil’s humility.
