Frank A. Cassell, president emeritus of the University of Pittsburgh at Greensburg, received a warm welcome on Wednesday when he returned to campus to deliver the annual St. Clair Lecture.

It's a good thing, too, because he noted that the cool local temperatures were a shock to a system used to the heat of his present home in Sarasota, Fla. Still, he said, he and his wife, Beth, were happy to spend an evening with old friends and colleagues.

The lecture was titled “Remembering the Battle of Bushy Run: Decisive Victory or Minor Skirmish.” Cassell is a well-known colonial historian whose work has extensively covered events in Western Pennsylvania during the period of the French and Indian War.

Prior to the talk, a reception and dinner were held in the Hempfield Room, which features two walls of windows looking out over Cassell's old stomping grounds.

Offering hugs all around was Pitt-Greensburg President Sharon P. Smith.

In charge of the evening's events was Tom Headley, in the company of wife Donnis.

Also, Nancy Jamison, Mary Cox, Wes and Peggy Jamison, Eric Kimball, Phil and Gladys Light, Diane and Rabe Marsh, Carl and Joyce Rossman, Dr. Jack and Georgia Smith, Dan Wukich, Joel Sabadasc and Susan Isola.
