Thomas Anawalt CC '09 was active in Columbia's theater community. He was best known on campus as the guy who broke the window in Will Snider's Everything Different and as Gramps, the Manhattanville refugee, from Insufficient Funds (113th Annual Varsity Show). Gramps was based on Thomas's own grandfather, Bernard "Buz" Anawalt, a man who spent two weeks with a thumbtack in his foot, feeling no pain. His other grandfather, Dick Cunningham, is a painter who studied with Edwin Dickinson. Cunningham's nudes, landscapes and Premier Coup can be seen at franciscunningham.com. Besides shouting out to his grandfathers on wikicu, Thomas enjoys acting like his grandfathers, and spending time with artists and women.
