The Selection Committee’s computer chattered:
‘’Application for Assistant Professor, tenure track, Animal Husbandry accepted.’’
His fingers tapped the keyboard nervously:
‘’But my field is Slavonic Studies.’’
The reply was swift:
‘’Maternity leave granted.’’
Benson made no demur.
Years later the new GM/3PIGS building was named after him.
