The St. Paul Pioneer Press lists College archivist Eric Hillemann's book on former Carleton president and noted explorer Laurence Gould as a top nonfiction work in its July 14 edition. A Beacon So Bright: The Life of Laurence McKinley Gould, a detailed biography, tells of Gould's overseas service during World War I, his role in the Byrd expedition (where he was second in command in the Antarctica adventure) and his 30-year tenure at Carleton as professor of geology and then as its popular fourth president. The book is available at carletonbookstore.org and amazon.com, along with Gould's book, "Cold: The Record of an Antarctic Sledge Journey," which was reissued by the College in 2011.
