THE FLYING PETREL 
PROUDLY SPOTLIGHTS 




Mr. & Mrs. Stephen |. Schmidt 

Mr. & Mrs. "Oglethorpe College" 

Mr. & Mrs. "Dixie Seal & Stamp Company" 



Jeanne Fuller Schmidt — '42 is a member of Kappa Delta 
Sorority, the Oglethorpe Alumni Association, and Ogle- 
thorpe Founders' Club. Stephen J. Schmidt — '40 is a 

Trustee of the College, a board member of the Ogle- 
thorpe Booster Club, a member of the Oglethorpe Alumni 
Association, and a member of the Oglethorpe Founders' 
Club. During his days at Oglethorpe University he was 
a pledge of Pi Kappa Phi and one of our football petrels. 
Steve, Jr. is currently attending Memphis Southwestern 
and daughter, Leslie Schmidt Williams, is teaching 4th 
grade in Tallahassee, Florida. 

Every Oglethorpe student, alumnus, faculty member and 
administrator will admit that Oglethorpe College is unique 
and "stands out in some way" over any other experience. 
Members of the Oglethorpe community who have been 
fortunate enough to share the experience of knowing the 
Schmidts' will also agree that there is an ever-lasting 
specialness in being associated with these two outstand- 
ing Oglethorpe alumni. Recently, in Mr. Schmidt's address 
to the Oglethorpe student body and faculty at the Ogle- 
thorpe Day convocation, he described the Oglethorpe 
spirit. 

"This College just did not jiJSt happen. You've got to know 
that first of all. There is beyond your comprehension and 
mine much hard work, dedication, blood, sweat, tears, 
prayers, pride, sacrifices and determination to succeed 
that make up the ingredients of Oglethorpe from its first 
day until this day. We are still using these qualities. You 
are, the faculty is, the trustees are, and everyone con- 
nected with Oglethorpe. It has been a real struggle and 



MAY I HAVE YOUR ATTENTION 



We want each of you to enjoy Alumni Day — Oglethorpe 
Style.

Don't just sit around remembering the good 'ole days. 
Relive your youth by spending the afternoon on the Ogle- 
thorpe College campus. That's 4484 PEACHTREE ROAD, 
ATLANTA, GEORGIA we're still in the same spot. 



I think there is no better phrase to describe Oglethorpe 
than Stormy Petrel." 

In turn, this overture describes the Schmidt approach to 
life. All Oglethorpe people respect, admire and appreci- 
ate the Schmidt Family. Not a year should pass without 
publicly saluting and expressing our gratitude to this 
family. 



Steve recently purchased this 

facility at 600 Somerset Terrace, 

Atlanta, Georgia. His company, 

DIXIE SEAL & STAMP, has moved to 

this location.
