In getting the buses started again this fall — the event was axed after the 2008 economic downturn — Interim Chancellor Kevin Guskiewicz cited Hooker’s vision. The tour visited 26 towns and cities and rolled more than 1,600 miles in three days.
Here’s a day-by-day look at the tour:

• “Meeting the Hometowns,” July/August 1998 Review
• “If It’s Tuesday, This Must Be Rose Hill,” July/August 1997 Review
