Thank you so much for the article about “The Sandwichman” [“Late-Night Snacks Delivered,” Then, spring 2013]. I have great memories of his late-night visits when I was a freshman at Elder Hall in 1970. His arrival was a welcome introduction to a much-needed study break.
I recall him as a short man with skinny legs, a fairly taciturn guy with little to say to his hungry customers. Your photo shows him in jeans, but I mostly remember him in shorts and sandals, even in the winter.
His piercing whistle, however, is the most vivid memory. There were a few times when I was talking on the pay phone in the Elder lobby to my girlfriend back home in Kentucky when he arrived. The pitch of his whistle somehow was able to disrupt and end the call abruptly. I learned, after several episodes, to hold my hand over the mouthpiece whenever he arrived.
