Dr. McMillan was my most memorable influence at Mercer. No one encouraged me as she did. I went on to graduate school in English literature. The summer after Mercer graduation, my dog and I lived with her. She even used a contact to find me a great used car. She was gracious and generous, and most likely the most refined Southern lady ever. She left an indelible impression.
