Faculty Briefs



Information Man
Clement P. Guthro, Colby's new director of libraries, arrived in June from a coed liberal arts college of 1,800 students with a large international cohort and a cold climate-Macalester College in St. Paul, Minn. The move to Maine brought him closer to his childhood home in Nova Scotia, and he said of trading St. Paul for Waterville, "It's probably a bit warmer here." Clem, as he prefers, his wife, Gayle, and their children, Erinn, Rachel and Jacob, are all moved in on Burleigh Street in Waterville. He spent the summer getting the lay of the land but said a priority will be "making sure students and faculty are aware of the resources and services that we have to support the educational process."

Yeterian Accepts Third Term
Ed Yeterian has accepted a third three-year appointment as vice president for academic affairs and dean of faculty.

President William D. Adams, after consulting with the division chairs, the Board of Trustees and senior administrative colleagues, asked Yeterian to stay on. The new appointment begins in the fall of 2004.

"In light of the many important academic initiatives now underway, including several building and programmatic initiatives, I am particularly grateful to Ed for agreeing to serve the College in this way," Adams said. "I am very pleased to say that he has accepted this offer."
