A Family Affair
John Gregory, emeritus professor of humanities who taught at Oxford College for three decades, and his family have long supported the college “in a spirit of gratitude and joy,” says Susan Atkinson Gregory 77OX 79C. She and her husband, Luke Gregory 76OX 78C, initiated the Michael S. Overstreet 76OX 78B Scholarship in memory of their classmate, who died of non-Hodgkins lymphoma in 2001. John Gregory established the Sara McDowell Gregory Award in honor of his wife, Oxford’s librarian for many years, which is given annually to a library assistant. And the Gregory-Rackley Career Development Award, funded by Eugene Rackley III 55OX 58B, supports faculty research in honor of John Gregory.
