Documentary by David Gaynes '99 Mentioned in USA Today
Keeper of the Kohn, a documentary directed by David Gaynes '99 was mentioned in a USA Today article (5/17/05) about Middlebury lacrosse field manager Peter Kohn, whose life is chronicled in the film. The 73-year-old Kohn has been at Middlebury for 24 years. The film takes its name from the one or two freshmen, known as "keepers," selected each year to look after Kohn and ensure his daily needs are met. Kohn has demonstrated symptoms of mild autism since childhood, although he has never been formally diagnosed. Keeper of the Kohn won the Jury award for best documentary at the Vail Film Festival and the Audience award for best documentary at the Palm Beach Film Festival.

Sol Linowitz '35 and President Jimmy Carter
Life Trustee Sol Linowitz '35 Dies at the Age of 91
Life Trustee Sol M. Linowitz '35 died on March 18 in Washington at the age of 91. He had been in failing health.
