Faculty members Dave Hitchens, Richard Brian, and Larry Stenberg sing a song written by faculty librarian Malcolm Stilson, about the first three deans at the mythical “Wintergreen.” Charlie Teske, Merv Cadwallader, and Don Humphries, the actual first three deans, then engage in a conversation about the founding of the college. They discuss the almost-accidental origins of Coordinated Studies, the form most characteristic of Evergreen’s unique educational practice, as well as other decisions in the early years of the college. This video is part of the Dreams and Goals: Early Visions of Evergreen a series, produced in a 1974 Public Information student contract.
