a typewriter store opened up a few blocks from me. I find it fascinating that it is a viable store concept, but also am very irritated because a friend had hoped to open a cafe in that space and she’s a phenomenal chef.

Kudos to Cleghorn, who is also a musician!

By the way, the Record, in its usual cluelessness, refers to Cleghorn as a Professor of English and American Studies when, in fact, she a Senior Lecturer. Is there some backstory there? (These titles matter because professors, but not lecturers, are tenured, and professors at Williams make much more money than lecturers, I think).

What sort of typewriter does Rechtal Turgidley, Jr use? These all seem too insubstantial for his tastes . . .

RE: DDF @ 3 …

Dave, the reference to a ‘musician’ is terrific! What an extension to the knowledge and chance to relate beyond the classroom.

I felt the same way about Dara Goldstein with her love of cooking. food and the offshoots into history and social attitudes. Gastronomica, the magazine she founded and edited has now become strictly academic and lacks the style and outlook she brought to it. I treasure my preserved copies.

With your closeness to campus, could you add an every-so-often column on faculty members with life extensions beyond their fields?
