During the mid 70's, I was usually a disruptive cut-up in the back of the tenor section. Fenno not only forgave me my occasional disruptions, he really enjoyed that his rehearsals were made more fun by the infusion of humor in with the learning of the music (in my case, by rote). While I was mostly a singing group guy (Spizzwinks and Whiffs), I continued to sing in the Glee Club because I really liked Fenno and knew I could learn something from him. He was a terrific person and I have tremendous respect for what he was able to accomplish at Yale. He touched many lives, and he probably didn't even know that he touched mine as much as he did. It was my mistake for not letting him know that while he was with us.
