June 1997


A legend in our midst

Milton Friedman, AM'33, (center), returned in May to give a lecture at the campus where he taught for 30 years and won a Nobel Prize in economics in 1976. More than 1,000 people jammed into Mandel Hall for a talk that included predictions about the future of Hong Kong and opinions on the Federal Reserve Board ("I still think the country would be better off if it were abolished."). Friedman, 84, is now a senior research fellow with the Hoover Institution at Stanford University. The talk was the second in the George J. Stigler memorial lecture series, sponsored by the Graduate School of Business. (Photo by Luke Swistun)

Court in session

Part of ongoing Reynolds Club renovations, a new food court opened in May. Morry's is gone, replaced by individual food stations serving quickie cuisine, from stir-fry to made-to-order deli sandwiches. There's also a Pizza Hut and Taco Bell, open late to satisfy nocturnal munchie cravings. (Photo by Lloyd DeGrane)
