Pryor also has journalism experience. At age 23, he said, he founded a weekly newspaper in Arkansas and published it for four years.

"I have a little newspaper blood in me," Pryor said.


Harvard students, meanwhile, said they were sad to see Simpson, the jovial former senator from Wyoming, leave for his home out West.

Simpson assumed his post in January 1998 following 18 years in the U.S. Senate.

"He's left big shoes to be filled," Newmyer said.

Pryor agreed, joking that his own shoe size is nowhere near Simpson's 17-inch boot size.

Though he assumes his post Aug 1., Pryor has other duties to attend to.
