Audio Clip – Butters on concentrated teaching
But the hard teaching, or the concentrated teaching, that I did was at the very beginning of the resumption of civilian classes, when the School opened up again as a real business school in probably 1946, maybe, late '45, where I had two or three years of teaching in the first year Finance course.
And one time there was one semester I remember—or one-third of a year, because we went right through the summer on a continuous basis then—when one other person, Bill Cary, who later became Chairman of the SEC, a lawyer, went to Northwestern, Columbia and then the SEC. Well maybe not quite in that order. He was President Kennedy's first term in the SEC.
He and I were the first-year finance teaching group for some 400 students. The occasion I remember most dramatically was when he went down with the flu, came down with the flu, and I had all 400 students to manage for a while.
