Go Get Help!

Rita Lipsitz


There’s a wonderful story about Ten Eyck Perry, who taught history. Ten Eyck must have been 6'5". He was one of the tallest guys, and he was as thin as a rail. One winter day, when he was older, he was crossing the campus and he fell. He waited for two undergraduates who were nearby, and when they came up to him, he said to one student, “Go get help.” And to the other one he said, “Lie down and keep me warm.”

Rita Lipsitz received her B.A. in history and government from UB in 1946 and was administrative assistant to the chair in the English Department from 1979 to 1997.
