I am chairman of the department of Krinsky studies at
the College-on-the-Hill. I invented Krinsky studies in North America in
March of 1968. It was a cold bright day with
intermittent winds out of the east. When I suggested to
the chancellor that we might build a whole department around
Krinsky’s life and work, he was quick to see the
possibilities. It was an immediate and electrifying success. The chancellor
went on to serve as adviser to Nixon, Ford and
Carter before his death on a ski lift in Aspen.
The college is renowned as a result of Krinsky studies.
