If there has ever been a story to inspire a new generation of students to do great things, it is the story of John E. Potzger. Here was a man who literally overcame every obstacle. His enthusiasm, scholarship, and hard work brought success in the form of lasting contributions to our knowledge of the world and in students who will carry on his work. It is men like Professor Potzger who make a university great; Butler University can take pride in the fact that it was here that his scientific career started, grew, and developed into maturity.
