To the Editor

Just a quick note to say how pleased I am to see Eric Sondermann’s Letter to the Editor in the most recent Bulletin. It is a thoughtful, sophisticated, and broadminded commentary on a pervasive issue in contemporary education and I, personally, think it should be required reading for all students, staff, and CC administration. Bravo…

In Memoriam: Dennis Showalter

Dennis Showalter

Retired History Professor Emeritus Dennis Showalter, known to many even outside the department as “the most engaging professor at the school,” died Dec. 30, 2019, from complications related to esophageal cancer in Colorado Springs. He was 77. Dennis claimed German military history as his specialty, but others note his influence on worldwide military history was…

Letters to the Editor

To the Editor: The Summer 2019 Bulletin with its package of stories on the college’s “antiracism” thrust calls out for a bit of perspective. As the child of two German-Jewish Holocaust refugees (both notable people at CC in their time), I know something of the history of bias and discrimination, even hate and genocide. Further,…

To the Editor

It was a delight to see the photograph on page 10 of the latest Bulletin. During my visit to CC for my 50th reunion in 2012, I took some time to visit the archives at Tutt Library to do research on my family’s history with the college. A large print of the baseball team photograph was lying on a table in…

Letters to the Editor

I shed tears reading Bill Hochman’s tribute to his books. How much we revere our books, and how incessant is the little knocking that tells us we must empty the shelves before someone does it for us. And no matter how close a friend or relative, they will not know the symbiotic connections represented by…

Thank you for writing such a thoughtful tribute to Bob Steck, true to his activism and political engagement. I will always be grateful for our time spent with him in the classroom – what a wonderful professor and friend.

Letters to the Editor

Life of Loevy Dr. Loevy arrived at CC at the beginning of my senior year. Being a poli sci major, I signed up for his course teaching us how to program computers using BASIC. It was rare that computers were used by the social sciences, but I loved the course. During my second semester I…

Letters to the Editor

Bulletin Editor: That the college administration, faculty and Bulletin editors approved publication of an article written by a dance instructor commenting on the Ferguson issue is appalling. Without any evidence, unaware of the law, and exhibiting a protest viewpoint, the author spun a web of misinformation, mistakes, and ignorance of the case. What happened to…
