Readers with long memories will recall the Millard Fillmore Institute, and its degrees awarded "magna cum grand sales," with a big grain of salt. The Millard Fillmore Birthday Party Society thrived for some years in Spring Valley, New York, each year inviting a celebrity to come and give a speech. They had wonderful letters of regret from the Queen, the Pope, and others. One years, the West Point Drill Team and Band did show up. About nine people showed up at the high school field. The drill team arrived on 3 buses, took a look around, the band played one song, and they welt home. All hail Millard Fillmore, the only US president who had a policy of turning down all offers of honorary degrees.
