Today the blue skies of New Haven were exceptionally clear as I viewed Harkness Tower from my ceremonial seat during the 307th Commencent at Yale University. The sun was hot but a cool breeze refreshingly swept through the Old Campus Courtyard most of the morning. Among the highlights of the outdoor ceremony was a most notable face in the crowd. The Magical Mystery Tour of life brought none other then Sir Paul McCartney to the Yale Commons to receive an Honorary Doctor of Music Degree. The best things in life may be free but a certain satisfaction comes from hard work and reaching a challenging goal. The real acheviement of the day came inside the walls of Woolsey Hall when our daughter in law, Nadya Maria Morales-Cummings, received her "earned" Doctor of Philosophy.
