The Winter 2007 Grinnell Magazine can't help you decide who to vote for, but it can take your mind off persistent politicians on the phone and on the airwaves (and maybe even at the door) with our cover story, "Insider Pass: 2008 Election," by Erin Peterson '98.
The story also features illustrations by Brian Duffy, whom Iowans know from his political cartooning in The Des Moines Register. We think you'll enjoy seeing how this award-winning syndicated editorial cartoonist views our world.
"The Banker and the Barn," with story and photos by Dan Weeks '80, introduces us to the banker who lives … in a barn? That's right — meet J. Godfrey "Gof" Thomson '62.
"Campus Mystery: My Search for the Duclod Man" is a fascinating story told by Sarah Aswell '04. Like a number of Grinnell students and alumni over the last 15 years, she received a disturbing anonymous letter. Aswell refused to give up until she found the "Duclod Man."
