This chapter describes the third and last step in his higher education. Guy Loomis funded Still and Dare Redmond to earn a BS degree in library science from the University of Illinois in Champaign. His first semester was rough because his mother, whose health had been declining, died of cancer in early October. That was the biggest challenge of his months in Illinois because the courses were not demanding. His ultimate goal for this degree was to get a job.
