Rewarding experiences as a professor at Eastern for 17 years led Dr. Jack Williamson to fund ENMU scholarships that encourage excellence and international friendships.
In his autobiography, Wonder's Child, the renowned science fiction author explained how teaching brought another dimension to his life.
"Though writing is another social thing, it's lonely, the responses long delayed. In the classroom, what you say and do gets instant feedback. And you belong. You're accepted, commonly respected, sometimes even loved."
