Heaney honors Chace, Emory with papers: Seamus Heaney continued his long and close association with Emory when he announced Sept. 23 that a substantial portion of his personal and literary papers will have a permanent home in Woodruff Library’s Special Collections. Heaney gave a poetry reading in honor of former President Bill Chace, a scholar of Irish literature and longtime friend of the 1995 Nobel laureate. In the reading, held in the Schwartz Center’s Emerson Concert Hall, Heaney debuted a new poem, “Comet at Lullwater,” about the evening he spent with Bill and JoAn Chace in 1997, watching the Hale-Bopp Comet from the roof of Lullwater House.

There wasn’t a lot to cheer about in Detroit’s Comerica Park this year as the hometown Tigers have spent the entire 2003 season setting new records for ineptitude. One place the Tigers have long excelled, though, has been in the broadcast booth. Hall of Fame broadcaster Ernie Harwell (‘40C) was honored with the Emory Medal, the University’s highest alumni honor, during Homecoming Weekend festivities, Sept. 18. Harwell’s first broadcast job was calling Atlanta Crackers games. In 1960, he joined the Tigers’ broadcasting team, where he remained until his retirement in 2002. Photo by Kay Hinton.
