The Memory Books
In the Spring 2012 issue of The Grinnell Magazine:
- Century-old scrapbooks of photos and ephemera show us a Grinnell that is both just beyond the reach of living memory, yet surprisingly familiar.
- Legendary literary agent Sterling Lord ’42 reminisces about 60 years in the world of book publishing and about his most famous client, Jack Kerouac.
- Students and alumni programmers talk about apps, those tiny computer programs that are changing the world.
- A 12-year-old Robert Noyce ’49 jumps off a barn roof in Grinnell — and lives!
- President Kington talks about how the College has recently become a national example of how to sustain access and excellence in higher education.
- And Carroll McKibbin ’60 writes about how he nearly killed biology professor Irving Fishman with a paint scraper — and then committed an even worse offense!
All this and much more will arrive in your mailbox soon — or read it online at The Grinnell Magazine Spring 2013 (PDF).
Read, enjoy — and please stay in touch!
