1913 The Reynolds Club, now open to the entire student body, was once an exclusive men’s club with "active" and "associate" student members. In December 1913 the club raised $1,000 to furnish a library, with titles determined by a members’ survey. The December Magazine noted other recent improvements that reveal a very different Reynolds Club from the one today’s students inhabit: "the installation of eight oak wardrobes in the billiard room…a new cigar stand and humidor at a cost of $300, a new pin-setting machine for the bowling alleys, and 60 new ivory-tipped cues."

Winging it

Jazz singer and six-time Grammy nominee Kurt Elling, X’92, originally planned a career in academia, including a stay at the Divinity School. But Chicago’s jazz scene called him to a faster-paced life, developing his unique scat style in clubs across the city, and later across the country. Self-produced and released by Blue Note, Man In the Air, his seventh CD, includes compositions by jazz icons John Coltrane (“Resolution”), Bob Mintzer (“All Is Quiet”), and Herbie Hancock (“A Secret I”)—reworked with lyrics by Elling. Other tracks include the sorrowful ballad “Hidden Jewel” and an electronically distorted work of jazz mysticism, “Higher Vibe.” —J.N.L.
