George N. McMath (Col ’54 L/M) has published You Win Some, You Lose Some, an account of his life as a Virginia legislator in the 1960s and ’70s, when he represented the Eastern Shore in the Virginia House of Delegates for 15 years. The book describes an era of politics very different from today, before computers transformed legislative and campaigning procedures; when social activities were gala affairs; and proposals reflected local citizens’ concerns and desires.
