Kudos, Part 2

Thank you for the article on Katie Krainc’s project, and congratulations to her on her work.

I recall that Robert Ruhl ’76, a student in the music department, built a harpsichord under the direction of Professor James Wyly in the early 1970s.

There was another student in that era who had a Watson [Fellowship] to play and record his violin in baroque churches in Italy. I forget his name and I remember that someone stole his recording equipment.

I was associate librarian at Grinnell and James Wyly was professor of music. We were on the faculty 1968–1976.
