Nine to Midnight (or two if hot)

What do professors do all day? Dear Professor Navarro: I am delighted that you are willing to be my subject for an article on a day in the life of a professor. What I would like to do is follow you around one day next week. If I had my druthers, I would come to your Home at breakfast time and stick to you like burdock until supper time. . . .

STEINER: by himself

Ralph Steiner '21 is a photographer. If he were more brash, he says, he would also be a psalmist. Actually, he has been plying both trades for 60 years or so. These picture and the accompanying commentaries were selected from a current exhibition at Hopkins Center, where Steiner is artist-in-residence and where, with students and friends last month, he cut up his 80th birthday cake. "This [the picture above] I did while I was at the Clarence White school," Steiner writes, "so it must have been in 1921 or 1922. Imagine 'corn beef' at 10e a pound; it is now $2.09. But then, as I remember it, tuition at Dartmouth was $4OO yearly, and that included compulsory chapel." Some of the photographs are old, but the outlook is still pretty fresh.
