Colby President Emeritus William D. Adams, now chair of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH), appeared as a guest on PBS NewsHour on Jan. 12. Host Jeffrey Brown spoke with Adams and Jane Chu of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) about the contributions artists and humanists make to American society, as well as the political pressure arts agencies feel to prove their worth. The NEH and NEA both turn 50 this year.
