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.
