September 26, 2004

September 26, 2004, Greencastle, Ind. - Dan Quayle, the 44th Vice President of the United States and a 1969 graduate of DePauw University, is among those participating in this weekend's Marine Corps Celebrity Invitation golf tournament at Camp Lejeune, North Carolina. A story in the Tar Heel State's Jacksonville Daily News interviews one of the spectators at the event, Linda Howard.

Reporter Wanda Meyer of West Union, Iowa was the fraternity-house mother for Quayle when he was in college at DePauw University in Greencastle, Indiana, so the experience was something particularly memorable. 'I'm going to tell her that I shook hands with him, and that he remembers her fondly,' Linda said. 'She's still a fan of Dan's. She said he was a nice young man, and he still sends her Christmas cards.'"dan quayle bush.jpg

Proceeds from the tournament benefit Project Care and the Fallen Patriot Fund. Quayle's foursome also includes baseball Hall of Famer Johnny Bench.
