It must have been Hyderabad, it must have been the village in the south. It was like middle-class Indians, just outside the village itself and this guy was a power engineer and they invited me out to their house and the next door neighbor’s daughter was looking over me moonily, and I was told she […]

I remember walking around the village, going to shopkeepers to see how stuff was made, how transactions took place. I asked this official if I could go on an inspection team. He spoke a little bit of English, enough so you could have a minimal conversation. He said, “OK,” but somehow they asked me if […]

When we were in Banaras, on the way to Calcutta, I remember Bruce Dunne and Andy Hurst — Andy’s the one who is the son of a doctor — and of being in a boat in the Ganges and bodies floating in the Ganges, dead bodies, like a significant number of them. And this is […]

I’d say there was actually extraordinary intimacy among the students and as relations with Bob Gaudino, I’d say, as well. He always […]

The most extraordinary experience was coming back from India to land in Europe. That was a big jump. It’s funny, little moments that you do remember. I was always a picky eater growing up. As I mentioned, my grandfather raised me and he was fantastic but he indulged my food habits, which weren’t good, so […]

I remember, going away, my biggest regret was that so much would happen [on campus] that I would miss. I was very involved with the radio station. I was the chief engineer of the station and we were going to go up in power and all this stuff would happen without me involved. And I […]

He was already talking about Williams-at-Home.
