Greek Letter Society


From Ed Rollins's memoir Bare Knuckles and Back Rooms: "I was active in student government in junior college and became student body president my sophomore year. I belonged to the Greek Letter Society, a small fraternity of thirty guys that included Tug McGraw, the All-Star major league relief pitcher and World Series hero, and Sylvester "Sly" Stewart, better known as the lead singer of Sly and the Family Stone. It was 1964, and I was having a hell of a lot better time than so many of my friends who were shipped off to Vietnam to fight a war nobody understood."
