1964-1965 Glee Club in Corks and Curls, courtesy Special Collections.

The 1964-1965 season of the Virginia Glee Club was Donald Loach's first as director. Douglas Miller was president; Gary Cook was Business Manager; Peter Zwanzig publicity manager; and Edward Tappe was librarian. Jan G. Owen was the accompanist.

Donald Loach has recalled in an oral history that when they went on tour, they were appalled to realize that they were refused service at truck stops along Rt 29 because they had an African-American member. According to Loach, the issue was brought to the attention of Edgar F. Shannon, and the truck stops were integrated.
