Fortune outlined his nree goals for the university: Imaginative teaching, esearch and service. He established the first long- ange planning committee to set goals and priorities jr the schools and departments. Donald Vaughn, long-time public administration rofessor, said. " He was an exceptionally human administrator. He had the great quality of being able to listen to others and he gave great weight to faculty and student views. ' Vaughn said Fortune once spoke to a graduate class saying the hardest decision he ever made was banning the Confederate flag as the official school symlwl. " He had the ability to see all sides of a question. " Vaughn said. " He made an Important, lasting con- tribution to the existence of a great Institution " Former Associated Student Body Vice President Cathy Williams said she spent more time In his office than In class. " We always thought of him not Just as a chan- cellor, but as a friend. " Williams said. Fortune ' s concerns for his students did not stop In his office. His views often conflicted with those of the Board of Trustees. Fortune received the John T. Emens National Award for Support of a Free Student Press for persuading the Board of Trustees to rescind a decision It made that would have censored The Dally Misslssipptan. S. Gale Denley, manager of student media and publisher of The Daily Mlsslssippian. said. " He was a good man. If he had any shortcomings It was that he was too good of a man to be In that po- sition. " It was Fortune ' s vision to make Ole Miss " the hub of cultural activities In Mississippi " that led him to conceive the Cultural Center to preserve for future generations the gifts of the past In art, mu- sic, writing, the performing arts and science.

" Reverend Larry Goodpastor. who presided over the service with the Reverend Lavelle Woodrick said that Fortune was a man who was sincere In all company " Fortune did the Just and right things — even though they were not always the most popular or expedient things to do.
