When he was proposing Williams at Home it was when he was then quite sick. And his proposal went to the Educational Policy Committee or whatever it was called, then came to the faculty. Somebody moved it, somebody seconded it, “Any discussion?” and nobody was gonna object to anything at all. And Gaudino got up and said, “No, no, no, no. I forbid this.” He said, “If this is not going to be discussed by the faculty, I withdraw the proposal.” Part of his objective was to get the faculty to think about issues related to experiential education. If we were going to pass it without even talking about it, he didn’t want it…. Read memos on Gaudino’s early proposal for a Williams-in-the-City program.
