Bunny Bane Wood ’45, Tom Wood ’45

We were students during World War II. Hank and Ardie Charles introduced us, and our first date was a school dance in the gym. Then Tom was caught up in the war, serving in a military band and an entertainment unit in Africa. Bunny was on campus with all the other girls, and very little male company. When Tom came back from overseas, it took 40 days of his 45-day leave to talk her into marriage. After 56 years together, we still snicker over comments at that time that “it would never last!” — Submitted by Tom Wood, Phi Mu Alpha, Bunny Bane Wood, Alpha Gamma Delta, Cl.ss of 1945.
