I read Kathleen Sampson's article on being the most senior alum; however, I moved to Stuttgart in 1960 so maybe that qualifies me as being the oldest alum?! Kleiningersheim was quiet little farming town with one guesthaus and served great beer, schnitzle mit kartoffol salat, thank God. It was a...

That time seems so very distant and my memories of it are sparse and disjointed. I can remember drinking the boots of beer at 'Sepples, the garden near the Manse with the bank and the drunks. Eating at the Mensa. Watching some TV in the common room. Dinners and German 'lessons' at the Sharfen Eck....

Schiller, summer of 65  
I attended Schiller College in the summer of 1965, when the school was still in an embryonic stage. What a magical experience.
