I believe there were only four students in my class (1961) from New York City. Grinnell opened a new world to me that forever changed my life. Being a Bronx kid, every person, every piece of music, and every place was new — and I was new to many Midwesterners. My first-year roommate actually checked the back of my head for horns. Times have certainly changed!
I send my best wishes to any classmate who may have remembered me, and to Grinnell, that made my adult life possible. There was no better place to mature and learn — then as now.
