We look back at some of their most memorable moments. Katherine Kernberger Professor of English, 36 years Best part of Linfield: Friendships with staff, colleagues and students from across Linfield’s campuses. The chance to teach a wide range of topics and works across periods, languages and cultures. Won’t miss: Marking papers and assigning grades – the banes of the teacher’s world. Plans (for this year): International Byron Conference in Paris, with trip to Geneva/Chillon/Chamounix, etc., in celebration of the 200th anniversary of the “Year Without a Summer” of 1816. Another Marie Bashkirtseff conference, this one in Naples, Italy, in September. Preparing an index for a manuscript for the University of Delaware Press. William Millar ’60 Professor of religious studies, 32 years Favorite campus hangout: Since my office is now back on the first floor of Pioneer, I am reminded of my first job washing pots and pans in the old dining room for 95 cents an hour in the late ’50s as a student. That’s where I met Donna (Vanderbrug) ’61, who kept stealing my “tuffy” to get my attention. Biggest surprise: President Vivian Bull having the campus dug up to link us to the internet and all that flowed from that, such as the restructuring of the library. It really did connect us to the larger world. Retirement plans: Teaching courses in OCE and returning more fully to an ongoing research interest in Isaiah.
