RileyThe Promise of Something Great

Former Charleston Mayor Joseph P. Riley Jr. graduated in 1964 and returned to his alma mater in 2016. In the 52 years between, Charleston, once a shabby Southern city mired in racial tensions and economic hardship, has emerged as a major tourist destination that attracts people from all over. And Riley, who led the way, has come full circle and is now drawing on his experiences to teach the next generation of leaders.

When the plebes, as the freshman cadets were then called,reported in the sweltering hot August days of 1960, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, a young senator from Massachusetts, was running for president of the United States. Famed World War II Army Gen. Mark W. Clark was president of The Citadel, and Lt. Col. Thomas Nugent Courvoisie, who would later be immortalized as the Boo in Pat Conroy’s book, was about to become assistant commandant of cadets. In those days, cadets attended weekly hops where they danced with young girls who wore pearls and white gloves and skirts with crinolines. The hops took place under the direction of a hostess, Mrs. Louise B. Dufour, and her assistant, Mrs. Llewellyn Izlar, who held dancing and etiquette classes for the Corps of Cadets.
