Wilma B. Prescott (Class of 1945) recalls in an interview that Professor Milton Walker Eddy of the Biology Department never flunked a female student in his class. Prescott refers to the professor as a legend and claims that he was called by the attorney to solve cases by using strands of hair. According to Prescott, Professor Eddy "felt sorry for those girls who had to take it [the required course] and weren't, did not have that bent."
