  • Steve Kampmann’s ’65 Unlikely Field of Dreams

    Posted August 13, 2015

    When Steve Kampmann ’65 graduated from the University of Pennsylvania with a degree in history, he had no idea what he wanted to be when he grew up. So he moved to Vermont – a beautiful place where he’d always wanted to live – and his wife at the time went back to school. Kampmann worked at the Vermont State Hospital to make ends meet and began a sketch comedy routine with a friend at the Vermont College of Fine Arts. Inspired by comedians Peter Cook and Dudley Moore, Kampmann and his friend began taking acting lessons, and the rest is something of a dream come true.

    Bruce McClellan H’57 ’60 GP’10 (1959–1986)

    Dr. McClellan was born on April 10, 1924 in York, Pennsylvania, the son of a paper company executive and a dedicated community volunteer. He was the third of four children and the only boy. Curiously, his childhood home in nearby Spring Grove, Pennsylvania, was a virtual replica of Foundation House. As a child, McClellan enjoyed touch football, ice skating, hiking and canoeing, along with lots of reading. He attended York Collegiate Institute through the 10th grade, and while there he met his future bride, Mary Elizabeth; both served on the editorial board of the school newspaper. After graduating from Deerfield, run at the time by its famous 66- year headmaster Frank Boyden, Dr. McClellan attended Williams College, where he majored in English. Between his sophomore and junior years, he joined the Army Air Force. As pilot of a B-24 bomber, he flew many missions over Germany. Returning to Williams, he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and then, after one year of teaching at Deerfield, went on to New College, Oxford, as a Rhodes Scholar.

    The earthquake that struck Nepal last April killed more than 9,000 people, injured more than 23,000 and triggered an avalanche on Mount Everest that made it the deadliest day in the mountain’s history. As hundreds of thousands were left homeless and centuries-old buildings were destroyed, halfway around the world Scott Skinner ’60 immediately responded to the call for help. For Skinner, who has built six elementary schools in eastern Nepal through his Vermont-based Phulmaya Foundation, the quake had struck close to home.
