Williams Reunions often feature interesting material: essays and remembrances and surveys that hundreds of students and alumni would be interested in but which, sadly, are rarely made public. I aim to fix that.

Starting tomorrow, I will be posting the essays which are included in the materials for the 50th reunion of the class of 1957. Amazing stuff, much of it directly relevant to my obsession with the history of housing at Williams, especially the end of the fraternity era. Read it all. Thanks to the members of the class for sharing this with us.

Someday, the Alumni Office will realize that information like this should be made public, that (virtually) everything should be posted on the web, that 70 year old Ephs love the idea that we are interested in their memories of Williams. The sooner that day arrives, the better.

UPDATE: Edited to be more polite.
