At one time or another every town should have an Al Ingalls.
Bluffton had one. And we truly feel for the towns that didn’t.
Al and his wife, Millie, owned Ingalls Restaurant. It was the last real sit-down restaurant on Main Street.
What a place. Hours were, oh, 5:30 a.m. to, what, 10 p.m. at night?
Those hours were set for the community, not the owners. It operated in a sort of informal “community system.” Meetings took place there. Deals developed. Coffee was poured. More meetings took place. More deals developed. More coffee was poured.
Bluffton College professor for 39 years?
Cub Scout leader?
Conscientious objector during World War II?
Cross-cultural learning pioneer?
Perhaps, all of the above.
Dick’s impact on Bluffton and particularly Bluffton College and University is significant.
