From the Register-Mail:
David â€œJeffâ€ Walton, at age 101, was not ashamed to admit he canâ€™t remember much from his days at Knox College.
Walton graduated from Knox in 1929, and is believed to be the oldest Knox graduate ever to return to the campus for a reunion. He sat in the front row at Saturdayâ€™s commencement ceremony. Knox President Roger Taylor came down from the podium to shake Waltonâ€™s hand.
For a brief moment, Walton stood up and basked in the warm applause of the hundreds gathered on the south lawn near Old Main for the ceremony.
