My name is William Ivers Lathrop but I go by Wil. I'm an engineering student who has technically been going to OSU for 4 years, but I only take about 2-3 classes a semester so I'm not too far into my major. One fact about me is that I mostly spend my free time with my 2 year old bernese mountain dog Kaisar who weighs 3 pounds less than me. Another is that there are only 4 photos of me on my phone to choose from.
The first story "Steam Train" Maury Graham stood out to me. It seemed like a history lesson as well as a story about Maury. The story's main theme to me was pride and how they believe in helping one another. There are differences between a Hobo and a Bum which to most people wouldn't really matter, but to Maury and other Hoboes it means a lot. Their pride as Hoboes is that they are kind people who help each other as a community or "clan" Even the name Hobo is a form of pride since it started as the term "hoe-boy" but that name implied that they were still children so they changed it.
