WALTER ROBERT SADLER
"You've had three years of pre-med. What would you do?" Bob has answered that question many times. From the U. of Michigan he brought a love of sailing, and for four years of the Boat Club and the sailing team, his motto has been, "Never let your dragging interfere with your sailing." "Little Man's" frequent boxes from home and his love of philosophical discussions made him a necessary part of bull sessions.
