Wid Bleything ’51, OD ’52, MS ’54 is a retired Air Force colonel and dean of the Pacific University College of Optometry.
But first, he was a Pacific student.
In Pacific’s first edition of Boxer Voices, we talk to Wid about his experience as a student amid a cohort of GI’s back from World War II, and about his own eye-opening years stationed in Montgomery, Ala., in the early days of the Civil Rights Movement.
We look forward to sharing additional alumni memories in future episodes of Boxer Voices. If you would like to share your story or have a suggestion for an upcoming episode, email me!
