Good lord, son, I had no idea you're from Iowa City! I'm a third-generation Hawkeye myself. Got my B.S. in 1977, in General Science, after a music major didn't really work out. Spent most of my college days in the Scottish Highlanders. My mom graduated in '48, my dad in '50, and my grandmother got her Master's in English Lit in 1924.
My hubby, the ever-eccentric Dr. Science,
, did his graduate work at the U. of I. as well. Just the science stuff, anyway. The as-yet-unused law degree he obtained from U. of North Dakota in Grand Forks.
I like to say that when we got married, we took the name of the county where we met! The fact that hubby's last name was already Johnson had nothing to do with it. :)
