When Henry R. Winkler died in December of 2012, Rutgers lost a well-regarded historian and administrator who served the university with aplomb from 1947 until 1977. But it might be said that he will always be at Rutgers. As a professor of history, whose annual lecture on Nazi Germany brought standing-room-only throngs, Winkler had befriended another esteemed Rutgers historian, the late Richard P. McCormick RC’38, GSNB’40, in a relationship that grew deeper over the decades. The two men often played cards together as they relived history’s great moments and compared notes on university affairs. Lore has it that when they were told that two adjacent dorms on the Busch Campus would be named after each of them, they both agreed that it would be befitting. Now, they would be facing the southern sky together, basking in the sun for eternity. “They were both proud of having the residence halls named for them,” says Richard L. McCormick, the son of the late historian who served as the 19th president of Rutgers for close to 10 years before stepping down in 2012. “They were very close.”
