LETTERS
How OMP became OII


Charles F. Custer, AB'48, JD'58 ("Letters," October/01) connects the name of a former College course labeled Organizations, Methods, and Principles of the Sciences (OMP) by a "pink-cheeked kid who was AB'53" to Observation, Interpretation, and Integration of the Sciences (OII).

The dates tell the story. When Custer became AB'48 it was named as he describes. When "the pink-cheeked kid who was AB'53" graduated it had been changed to his version. I was a student in the College 1950-53 and remember that the name changed while I was there, although the course was basically the same.
