Alumni Memory: Nancy Verrall Warren, BJ ’81

A Bet to Remember

I had made a bet with Wilf Kesterton that I would turn in an error-free Honours Research Project. He rather smugly announced that he had found two errors in my paper. He was wrong on one of them, but he was right that I referred to the Saskatchewan Rough Riders instead of Roughriders. I spelled it the way the Ottawa team did. Of course Wilf would know, being from Saskatchewan! So we called it even and bought each other a drink. – Nancy Verrall Warren (BJ ’81)
