Morning Mail: A Bar Exam Story
I would like to relate my bar exam story.
I have lived in Dover all of my life. So when I was travelling over to Concord to take the exam, on Route 4 I pulled over in Epsom to buy a bottle of soda. When I came out I discovered that my car would not start. In a panic, I grabbed my briefcase and ran out to Route 4 to hitchhike to the exam. A fellow applicant named Stan Mullaney stopped and gave me a ride. After the exam, he brought me back to my car and it started right up. We figured that it probably had a vapor lock which was something you would get very occasionally when cars still had carburetors.
In Mullaney, I met a man who has become my friend throughout my entire career.
Incidentally, in that year 1970, if memory serves me correctly, there were 56 applicants and 49 passed.
