Linfield alumni produce Hatfield film After five years of work by Linfield College alumni, a feature-length documentary film about Mark Hatfield made its television debut and will also be shown at Linfield. The Gentleman of the Senate: Oregon’s Mark Hatfield aired on Oregon Public Broadcasting in January and will show at Linfield College on Wednesday, March 11, at 7 p.m. in Ice Auditorium. A Q&A with the filmmakers and former Hatfield staff members will follow the Linfield showing. One never knows where an idea may come from, as Kevin Curry ’92 and Devon Lyon ’97 learned one summer evening when the idea for a documentary film on Oregon statesman Mark Hatfield popped up in casual conversation among friends. “We were talking about the broad impact a politician like Mark Hatfield has on the state through all of the people that worked for him,” said Curry, an executive producer on the film. “I expressed my surprise that no one had done a documentary on Senator Hatfield. Be careful what you wonder about out loud, it could lead to an amazing, difficult and rewarding experience.” Focusing on Hatfield’s years in the U.S. Senate, the film examines how his leadership approach served him well on the big issues of the day. The 55 interviews conducted for the film encompass a range of people including President Bill Clinton, former U.S. Senate colleagues Sen. Bob Packwood (R-OR) and the late Sen. Daniel Inouye (D-HI), as well as Oregon leaders and many former staff members who worked daily with Hatfield. Linfield College’s connection to the production is significant. In addition to alumni Curry and Lyon, executive producer Rick Dancer is the great-grandson of J.O. Maxwell, after whom Maxwell Field is named, and his parents, Roy and Betty Dancer, are alumni. Further, both Senator Hatfield and his wife, Antoinette, received honorary degrees from Linfield in 1971. His daughter, Elizabeth Hatfield-Keller, earned a degree in 1984.
