Kudos for Muirhead

This space has been a fan of Government Professor Russ Muirhead for a good while now. We are not alone:

From: Student Assembly

Subject: Profiles in Excellence Award

Greetings. You are invited to attend Student Assembly’s Profiles in Excellence Teaching Award Ceremony that will be held this Tuesday, January 15th at 4:00PM in the Paganucci Lounge of ‘53 Commons. Please join us as we recognize the fall recipient of this award as chosen by you: Professor James Russell Muirhead, the Robert Clements Associate Professor of Democracy and Politics in the Government Department. Light refreshments will also be served. We can’t wait to see you there!

Two summers ago, Professor Muirhead taught a seminar on political speech: twelve bright sophomores — several of whom had already taken other courses with him — and one frisky alum. We read and listened to great political oration from the past three millennia, had a couple of wonderful class dinners chez moi, and debated pretty much everything. That’s what Dartmouth is all about.

    D Afraid of a Little Competish

    How Regents Should Reign
    As Dartmouth alumni proceed through the legal hoops necessary to defuse a Board-packing plan—which put in unhappy desuetude an historic 1891 Agreement between alumni and the College guaranteeing a half-democratically-elected Board of Trustees—it strikes one…
