For a man who only works on campus from 9:30pm-12:30am, Sunday-Thursday, Carl Beck sure is popular. You can not say his name without a student or an Alumna gushing about how much they love Carl. He is quite an endearing man who is always ready with an adventurous tale that involves him jumping out of airplanes during World War II or trying to evade the German army.
If you haven’t had a chance to meet Carl or just want to learn more about him, numerous organizations have captured his story, including the Agnes Scott Profile. Check out these links to take a journey into his memorable and heroic past:
