Law school hangout has closed; Wilbert’s was an institution” (Oct. 29, 2013, The Gainesville Sun)

The Gainesville Sun spoke with Calfee about Wilbert’s, which recently closed after 49 years of business across from the law school.

From the article:
Law school professor Dennis Calfee, who proudly owns a Wilbert’s T-shirt, recalls his time spent at Wilbert’s as a student. Wilbert was his milkman and banker — the only person who would cash Calfee’s checks from his hometown bank.

Calfee said it was common for Wilbert to lend money to students who needed help paying rent.

“It was always, ‘How can I help you?’ – not, ‘What do you want?’” he said. “It was a real institution and a great part of the history of the law school.”
