I greatly enjoyed the spring 2014 issue, in particular “Typology of a Library.” I’m encouraged that Williams continues to believe strongly in the written word—on paper, that is—to the extent of enlarging the Sawyer Library. Another article that I pumped my fist and yelled “Yes!” about was “The Mathematics of Legos.” When I entered Williams, I thought I would major in math, but the course “Elements of Real Analysis” shot down that idea. I ended up majoring in physics, with lots of art courses, and became an architect. I think a course like “The Mathematics of Legos” would have been a great experience. It turns out we architects are pretty good at solving problems. The course sounds like a blast.
