Charlie Durbin was associated with FSU athletics for an amazing 41 years. He truly fulfilled his duties with care and dedication and in every instance focused on what he thought was best in the interest of Florida State University and the athletic program. During the early years when he was exclusively driving athletic teams across the country at all times of the day and night, Durbin always took personal interest in each athlete and their welfare. No coach, athletic administrator, or university representative ever worried about a trip when Charlie Durbin was in charge. In 1960, when Charlie was given additional responsibilities in cinematography and the operation of a training film production laboratory, he was most eager to learn and to become proficient in film production technology.
