FILE - This handout photo provided by the Newseum, and the estate of Jacques Lowe, shows John F. Kennedy at a news conference in Omaha, Neb. in 1959.  Three cities loom large in the life and death of John F. Kennedy: Washington, D.C., where he served as U.S. president and as a senator; Dallas, where he died, and Boston, where he was born. With the 50th anniversary of his Nov. 22, 1963 assassination at hand, all three places are worth visiting to learn more about him or to honor his legacy.(AP Photo/Newseum, estate of Jacques Lowe)

“It’s 2212, and I’m marking my 220th year as a member of the faculty. It’s been a little strange teaching the great-great-great-great grandchildren of my original students, but who knew that my penchant for asparagus and peanut butter sandwiches held the key to long life? If only I’d patented the idea. HWS was reaching a new level around the time of my 20th anniversary, but the big turning point came when we hired Lulu Googler as president and she put her family money to work for us. It was coup enough when she bought Oxford and Cambridge at that remainder sale, but to be the first college with a term abroad on Mars – I still have a hard time believing we pulled that off!”
