Dr. Pogue was on the history faculty of Murray State College (now university) when I was in high school. My history teacher, Ms. Margaret Campbell, took me to see Dr. Pogue when he was in town. I interviewed him about Churchill (I was hoping to give a speech on Churchill) and Dr. Pogue knew Churchill well. I am still impressed that a man of his renown had the time for a high school student.
