Quotes from biographical sources

Joseph B. Bullock died in his home city, Washington, D.C. Joe was the youngest of eight children, and his three brothers, including Samuel Bullock '43, were all physicians; his four sisters all teachers. In his letter to Al Dickerson, written to gain admission to the College, he said he attempted to live a life following his Baptist minister father's teachings of "brotherly love, respect for the right of others, integrity of character, high moral standards, and perseverance." Joe left Dartmouth before graduation. In 1953, he asked the College for a transcript needed for admission to Howard University Law School, where he became a student. thereafter, he vanished from the scene, leaving a photograph of an earnest young man in the College records.
