Zwei Smarte Boys Redux

Robert O Goebel, Max Dufner, and Steve Rogers taken in Richmond, Virginia, Christmas 1993
Today I am thinking of my mentor, the late Professor Max Dufner (1920-1999), who shepherded me through my MA program in the Department of German at the University of Arizona back in the early 1970s.  June 17th would have been his 93rd birthday. He was a great influence on my life and professional career and a dear friend whom I miss very much. He took good care of his "Zwei Smarte Boys."
See my original tribute to Max back in June 2009:
