      Don Driscoll BA notes that it’s been some “three score and nine years” since his college days first began and “a lot of water has gone under the bridge, or over the dam, if you prefer that phrase.” In 1946, the history department consisted of one professor, namely Dr. Philip Overmeyer, and a few other professors who combined history with other subjects. Today, there are more than 10 faculty members. “My, how much the department has been transformed,” Driscoll writes, “and I’m sure that it has all been for the better.” He modestly adds that he can “offer little in the way of accomplishments or achievements other than the gratitude of having been married for the past 63-plus years to a wonderful spouse, Eva Driscoll, a fellow 1950 Lewis & Clark graduate.”

  • MM
