Roof-top cafe

The words "no photo yet"My most memorable place at Yale was the small outdoor café on the top of the Art and Architecture building, where I went the night Martin Luther King was killed, watched The Hill neighborhood burn in the riots that ensued, turned 20 at 3:30 am, and came down having decided to dedicate my career to education, which, as it turned out, was just the right thing for me.

College libraries

L&B Reading Room in Sterling LibraryHaving spent quite a bit of time reading history in campus libraries, I have fond memories of Sterling–green leather L&B couches, a fifth-floor carrel with a magnificent view for writing papers, and the manuscript room that housed the nineteenth century diaries of Yalies who studied in Germany I studied for my senior thesis. It was a moveable feast studying in all the residential colleges but Georgian Pierson and Gothic JE were like home.
