CHARLES B. FODALE

Chuck, Misto

It is difficult to classify Chuck as a "yankee" or "reb" since he claims a town in North Carolina for his home and yet is a Bostonian of long standing. Quite steady with his academics, he pretends to be most fickle in matters of the heart, but now shows indications of settling down. Chuck has won the title of the "old Professor" from his loving classmates by dint of having pulled more of them sat than he can remember.
