Grinnell and activism
It’s the focus of the winter 2010 issue of Grinnell Magazine. In what may be the first issue of the magazine written entirely be Grinnellians:
- Matthew Imber ’11, talks about the occasionally obscene, often bitingly funny history of Grinnell’s alternative press.
- Jon Andelson ’70, Bruce Nissen ’70, and Kathy McLaughlin Drinkard ’73 reflect on the light and dark sides of the late ’60s at Grinnell.
- Mona Ghadiri ’10 (pictured on the cover) and Maya Andelson ’12 discuss campus activism today.
- President Raynard Kington offers his thoughts on the Grinnell College Young Innovator for Social Justice Prize and other new initiatives.
- Leda Hoffman ’09 writes how self-governance changed student life forever.
- Richard Cleaver ’75 celebrates the First-Year Tutorial’s 40th anniversary.
- Greg Thielmann ’72 explains the urgency of continued arms control.
There’s lots more in the winter issue, including an expanded “Classnotes” section, information about some great new books and music from Grinnell and Grinnellians, and the latest campus news.
