Claudius Lee was an engineering professor who died in 19-62.
In the 18-96 Tech yearbook when he was a student, Lee called himself the "Father of Terror" on a page devoted to the Klan.
Torgersen said two historians, including a Klan expert, concluded the page probably didn't represent real Klan activity and may have been a prank.

Soon Virgiia's veterinary hospitals may have to tell customers whether they provide overnight care for animals.
The so-called "Peanut bill," in honor of a dog who died eight years ago, won approval by the Senate Agriculture Committee.
Peanut died after his owner left him in a Fairfax County animal hospital, believing the dog would have around-the-clock care.
For years, legislators have rejected bills that would prohibit a veterinary clinic from using the word "hospital" in its name if it doesn't provide overnight care.
