Alf Evers, who died last Wednesday at age 99, was the town historian of Woostock, N.Y., and the author of several exhaustive works of local history,including "The Catskills: From Wilderness to Woodstock." A charismatic figure, Alf often spoke before local groups regarding the need to limit development in the Catskills, Evers seems to have been preserved into a lucid old age by his dedication to his work. In the days before his death, he put the finishing touches on his final book, "Kingstonon-Hudson: An American Historical City," another massive production, which he wrote with the secretarial assistance of Ed Sanders, a poet and friend. It is scheduled to be
published this spring. "He was singing when he passed," Mr. Sanders said. "Bemusement, that's how he lived so long. The divine comedy passed over his eyes."

Michael Granof '63, a professor of accounting at the University of Texas at Austin's McCombs School of Business, wrote an op-ed on high textbook prices for The Chronicle of Higher Education (Nov. 26, 2004). Granof, who is also chairman of the board of the University Cooperative Society, the University of Texas's bookstore, wrote: "Students and their parents and legislators have a legitimate complaint. Textbooks are overpriced. But the causes aren't price gouging by bookstores, unscrupulous professors who force students to buy the texts they wrote, unnecessary and too-frequent revisions, or bundled supplementary materials. Those are all symptoms, not the disease."

"Devil in the Flesh and Other Pieces," the latest recording of music by Jay Reise, has appeared on Albany Records (www.albanyrecords.com). The CD has a number of connections to Hamilton College: Reise graduated from Hamilton in 1972 and later served on the Hamilton faculty; the program notes are by Comparative Literature Professor Peter Rabinowitz; and one of the works, Satori, received its world premiere at Hamilton in 1995, when it was performed by soprano Deborah Massell '80 and Sar-Shalom Strong, currently a lecturer in piano. The recording includes four works, all of which feature Marc-André Hamelin, widely regarded as the outstanding pianist of his generation. Also participating in the performances are bassoonist Charles Ullery (principal bassoonist of the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra) and soprano Jody Karin Applebaum.
