He was always a hoot, very intelligent.
I've seen Bunky a couple of times. He looks different huh but I do too,hehehe!
After he retired, Dr. Gaisser worked at the Chazz Package Store on Hwy 72. A former student walked in and exclaimed, "Didn't you used to be Dr. Gaisser?"
I see one of my other favorites, Dr. Jack Price, in the Public Library occasionally, always researching. Brilliant man. He also had a rather dry sense of humor. Not many got it, but I am proud to say I did. I really enjoyed his classes.
What did Price teach?

Dr. Price was a history professor. He taught Western Civ, French Revolution, The Age of Reason, etc. He was great.
Price stood looking out the window, speaking in a monotone voice on those looonnnng Tuesdays and Thursdays. After the first couple of weeks, I sat there trying to look at whatever he was looking at.

i saw paul "bunky" jones at florence harbor a few weeks ago.
A friend of mine back in the 80s went sailing with him one day and found out why they call him "Bunky". He was not amused. Still a great Spanish teacher, however. I used to run into him at Spanish conferences from time to time.

I dont know what happened to him, but when I went to UNA in the mid 80s, he still had that hairdo, except it was gray and dirty. He also lost his sartorial excellence too. I think he was still wearing the same suits you saw him in in 1974. I absolutely could not follow any of his lectures.
Gaisser was great. He didn't teach, he made you think. I hade his class at 8:00 in the morning and I dont think I missed a single class. I remember one morning a girl came into class with a coke and he said "you can't bring that coke in here unless it has whiskey in it".
