Two Legendary Tigers Pass Away

Two of the great ambassadors of Colorado College hockey history recently passed away. Ron Hartwell ’52, CC’s all-time leading goal scorer, passed away on July 20 at the age of 88, while Andy Gambucci ’53, died on Sept. 24 at the age of 87. Hartwell and Gambucci were teammates on the team that claimed the school’s first national championship at the Broadmoor Ice Palace in Colorado Springs in 1950.

Thank you, Bill Hochman, for reconnecting me to that halcyon era of Freedom and Authority, of Glenn Gray, of Neale Reinitz and Frank Krutzke, of Hanya Holm, and Paul Doktor in the summer of 1957. Just for a moment, it all came flooding back. Ann Sebastian ’58 In the article on page…

Q&A with Abby Stein ’15, Former Intern at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center

What was your major at CC? Studio art with a concentration in photography and printmaking. Why did you undertake this internship at the FAC? I was in a Southwest archaeology class Block 8 of my freshman year, and our professor Esteban took us to the Fine Arts Center to look at their Native American collection.
