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.
