A Great Life: An interview with Edward M. Singleton
Edward M. “Dick” Singleton, in addition to being Coastal’s chancellor emeritus, is perhaps the university’s most devoted fan, booster and advisor. The institution’s longest-serving chancellor (1963 to 1983), Singleton, 77, is a familiar presence on campus, in regular attendance at sporting events, faculty gatherings and meetings of the Coastal Educational Foundation. He serves as a senior advisor to Coastal president Ronald R. Ingle and maintains a small office on the second floor of the building that bears his name. Coastal Carolina University Magazine talked with him recently after his daily walk on Coastal’s track.
Dick Singleton passed away in 2011
