Feature stories:

Collecting From the Heart

For nearly half a century, Richard Brown Baker ’35 has been collecting art with an uncanny eye for quality. By bequeathing most of his trove to the Yale Art Gallery, he has elevated its already powerful contemporary holdings to new heights.


Remembering a Musical Master

Paul Hindemith came to teach at the School of Music in 1940 as a refugee from the Nazis. Celebrations marking the centennial of his birth confirm his enigmatic legacy as a composer—and his memorable impact as a mentor.


Public Health and Medicine’s Future

The reappearance of ancient scourges such as plague and the emergence of new ones like AIDS are challenging the traditional methods of health care. Under a new dean, the Department of Epidemiology and Public Health is joining the battle with some unorthodox strategies.


The Freshman Address

The President welcomed the College Class of 1999 with a speech that concentrated on the seriousness of the academic endeavor.
