2010 Spring Issue 1 (April 9, 2010)
As a student at Carleton in the early ’90s, Peter Gwinn (’93: Theater/Media) never got his hands on the roving bust of Johan Schiller. Now, nearly 20 years later, he can finally check that item off his to-do list. In the most visible Schiller appearance ever, the campus icon made its national TV debut last Monday night on Comedy Central’s “The Colbert Report.” Stephen Colbert held the familiar bust in his arms when he ended the show by saying, “In the words of Friedrich Schiller, good night.”
The prestigious Watson Fellowship, a $25,000 grant to pursue independent, international research for one year, was recently award to senior linguistics major Andrew Terwilliger. Terwilliger will spend next year traveling in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore, and Japan as he explores the Chinese folk music diaspora.
