William H. Heydorn ’55

Soon, students from around the world will be traveling to Hope, some from blocks away and some from the opposite side of the globe. In the summer of 1927, William A. Heydorn ’28 and Howard R. Sluyter ’28 made an “epochal tour” from Holland to Long Island (and back) in a $10 Model T assembled from a junk pile. Their 2,400-mile journey earned a newspaper story in New York, and more than 20 years later even led Heydorn’s son, Dr. William H. Heydorn ’55 to enroll at the college. Please visit the Alumni and Family Engagement blog for more about the odyssey.
