It is nice to see College professors involved in national politics. According to the Transcript, Political Science Professor George Marcus was the biggest donor to John Kerry’s campaign in Berkshire County, having given $3,000 this quarter. Chemistry Assistant Professor Mark Schofield gave $300 to Howard Dean.

Those who want to do their own research on the political giving habits of people associated with Williams College can try entering “Williams College” (without any quotes) here. Schofield’s donation is not listed, presumably because of timing issues.

There might be a good Record article in here somewhere. I would wager that the Williams faculty, as a group, will contribute much more to Democratic candidates/causes than to Republican ones.
