Who, What, When
In the winter issue of Scope [Creative Genius], you note that Elizabeth LaCompte 67 was Skidmores first recipient of a MacArthur grant; hers was awarded in 1995. While she is the first Skidmore graduate to have received the award, the first Skidmore recipient was Mott Greene, a professor in the history department, who received it in the early 1980s.
Editors note: True enough. Greene, a historian of science, won his MacArthur in 1983, just before he left Skidmore and became the John B. Magee Distinguished Professor at the University of Puget Sound in Washington.
