- Glad to see this fine Web Site. Great Job ! I was born in Morgantown in 1938. My Aunts & Uncle went to school with Don Knotts & the Knott's home was just a few blocks from my Grandmother's house at 217 Green Street. My Dad graduated from WVU in 1938 & he & I visited some of the University Staff a few years ago. He lives in Greensboro,NC & must be one of the oldest living Alumni (Class of 1938).
