To think of my Ticker days,
I have to go back 70 years, to 1934–37. The Ticker was in its infancy then. Those were the days when The Ticker really meant "the ticker," the machine that spewed out paper ribbon through telegraphy.
In the '30s, our whole school was housed in 17 Lex. It was rather intimate back then; friendships developed along the way. And we spent nights patching stories together and reproducing the newspaper in mimeograph form.
I'm grateful to the School of Business and Civic Administration, which took me in in February 1934: the wonderful professors, the wonderful education. The Ticker was part of the totality of that experience. It's nice to be reminded of The Ticker.
