HGS hiatus

Another blue construction fence has popped up on the central campus, this time at the Hall of Graduate Studies, which is closed for a major renovation. It will reopen in 2020 as a center for the humanities. Alums, what do you remember most about HGS?

    What I best remember about the HGS was the entrance inscription "He was born with the gift of laughter and a sense that the world was mad"... hardly 'classical' coming from Scaramouche, hardly the author of any literary classics.

    I once was given an interview question, 'what would you like inscribed on your tombstone?', and I replied, the inscription at the Yale Hall of Graduate Studies entrance, and quoted it. This left the interview somewhat nonplussed!
