Dr. Herbert D. Proctor, M.D., the son of Charles N. and Allie Dickerson Proctor, was born in 1927 in Landisburg, West Virginia. He graduated from Marshall University and received his medical degree from the Emory School of Medicine, Atlanta, Georgia. A Navy veteran of World War Two, he was one of the team's physicians. He perished with his wife, Josephine, leaving three daughters--Margaret, Patricia and Courtney; and two sons--James and John. He was 43 years old.
On a rainy hill side in Wayne County, West Virginia, the lives of 75 people were lost in the worst single air tragedy in NCAA sports history. Among the losses were nearly the entire Marshall University football team, coaches, flight crew, numerous fans, and supporters. The event marked a boundary by which an entire community would forever measure time... before or after "The Crash". This site is a memorial to the lives that were lost on that evening; to honor those men and women who made a mark in the hearts of a school, a community and a nation.
