Dr. Leon Lederman, Brian Maier ’89, Kevin Schraith ’89, and Dr. Stephanie Pace Marshall
Dr. Leon Lederman, Brian Maier '89, Kevin Schraith ’89, and Dr. Stephanie Pace Marshall discuss the early years of IMSA and the charter class experience. Dr. Lederman starts the conversation by asking what they did wrong at the beginning. Schraith says he thinks some of the things that weren't all figured out - the places where the "seams" showed - were the most memorable, they allowed for "valuable chaos". Dr. Pace Marshall asks Schraith and Maier how they found out about IMSA and why they came as part of the charter class. She also asks about what they remember learning, good or bad experiences. Schraith recalls his English classes and learning how to interpret and debate evidence. Dr. Pace Marshall asks how the IMSA experience has mattered throughout their lives, and they speak to both the intellectual and the social aspects of their experiences. They also discuss what residential life was like.
