Alan McDaniel




You opened a world to me. Growing up in a segregated Northern city, my exposure to any minority was nonexistent. And in 1966 you came into my life as a cast member of StarTrek. Weekly I joined dozens of my college men’s dorm to catch every episode. Your roll as a bridge officer, your presence in that multi-cultural cast changed me more than that first year of college. You changed my life. In suce a significant way. I went on to teach in a minority high school. Do to you.
