Hi Court,  We had at least one class together. I think you drove a sports car, 190 SL, which was just like my folks'.   Johnny Magnuson

Court got me started in running in 1965.  Our hero was Peter Snell who dominated the 1964 Olympics in Tokyo in the middle distance events.  Of course Jim Ryan was a phenomenon and even from Kansas.  At KU we were suitemates in Naismith Hall.  We lost touch for many years after college until he showed up at a reunion.  It was great to re-connect but he passed away in 2010 (I think). 

He was a great friend.

This picture is before a workout (we don't look too hammered) our sophomore year 1966.

The Court I knew was a bit of a character in high school.  He always would invite me to come out beer drinking which I believe took place in a church parking lot or something like that.  I actually roomed with his first cousin for short while at KU.  His cousin’s name was Chip Certain (Earl E. Certain, Jr).  He was also a bit of a character.  Anyway, from what I know, Court got a PhD in microbiology and was studying bacteriophage, essentially virus particles that can infect bacteria.  So sorry to learn of his passing as he would be someone I would have enjoyed spending time with again.
