A book could be written about "Billy" Phelps--as he was uni- versally known at Yale. Voted again and again--"the most popular professor at Yale," by graduting classes. He was equally popular with the ladies. His sayings and anecdotes were retold by someone almost daily. Before me is a very fine portrait of Professor Phelps:
"To Dorothy, from her cousin Wm. Lyon Phelps." Here, in far-away Vancouver, my sister and I would "tune-in" to a Sunday night broadcast to hear Billy Phelps on his weekly programme-- so many times ending: "but I must stop to catch my train up to New Haven," bringing back memories and nostalgia. The world lost a brilliant mind with his death.
