Henry Pitcher
Henry Pitcher, 92, receives his bachelor of arts degree in mathematics. He first pursued a college degree in the 1930s but had to drop out and find work because of the Great Depression. He worked for M.D. Kellogg, now part of Halliburton, and traveled extensively as head of the company’s foreign construction operations. After his retirement Pitcher went back to school to finish his degree.
