C. Boyden Gray, the speaker for
the Websterian Pre-Law Society's
annual dinner, Friday, April 15th,
has been described by the
Society's current secretary, Chris
topher Behm, as possibly being
their "most distinguished speaker."
According to Behm, the Society
had been looking as far back as fall
to get him to speak. The Society's
vice president, Alex Struving, fi
nally obtained his address, wrote
to him, and then received a call
from his secretary.
Behm describes the Society as
being "really glad to have him,"
and expects a very good turnout,

Mr. C. Boyden Gray has been a
Guilford College, Greensboro, N.C.
public servant for a long time and
has held various positions. He is a
magna cum laude graduate of
Harvard with a B A in history, was
first in his class at UNC Chapel
Hill law school, clerked for U.S.
Supreme Court Chief Justice Earl
Warren, and has worked with and
now works with a Washington,
D.C. law firm, Wilmer, Cutler, &
But, as Behm put it, "his biggest
claim to fame," is most likely his
work with both the Reagan and
In 1981, according to Struving,
Gray was legal counselor to Vice-
President George Bush, and in
1988 was the director of the office
of transition council for the Bush
transition team, which helped to
move the new president into office
after the election.
In 1989 he was counsel to Presi

Four Guilford College employ

lier this year or will be leaving by
the end of the semester.
Bill Scott, former director of
landscaping and grounds, worked
at Guilford from September 17,
1979 - February 14, 1994; Larry
West, former director of admis

November 14, 1985 - May 31,
1994; Lillian Lyndrup, former di

director of planned giving, worked
at Guilford from August 11, 1988
- February 16, 1994.
It is the administration's official
policy not to comment on indi
vidual personal activities. "Differ

simply cannot comment."

Gray will be coming to Guilford
for only one night to speak at the
dinner, with only his travel ex
penses being covered. He currently
is working for a law firm, and
though he "handles a large range"
of subjects, according to Struving,
he has "emphasis...on environ
mental issues, trade, and manage

The turnout is expected to be
good. Behm says Gray will "ad
dress a wide range of subjects, re

sponsible for the commemorative
Sesquicentennial Garden. "It
seems that the desire to change
people by moving older employ
ees out is being done with a lot less
conscience." Scott said. "All of a
sudden you understand you can
love an institution and realize that
the institution does not love you."
Scott said that these recent cut
backs were done under the guise
of cost cutting and will become
self-defeating. He said Guilford
will be losing experienced employ
ees who have built up a loyalty to
Guilford, only to replace them with
workers who will probably see the
college more as a stepping stone
for their careers.
"Guilford has become an insti
tution that is operating as a busi
ness, but there are other costs in
the loss of experience and loyalty."
Farmer worked at Guilford for

years. "I did not want to leave
Guilford...but it was not up to me."
