Virginia Spiess grew up down the block from the College and actually remembers the times before Dowling took over the Idle Hour mansion, back when the National Dairy Corporation held sway. In this interview, excerpted from a longer oral history, she describes her experiences in the late sixties at Dowling, traveling in Europe, and teaching in the Connetquot School District.

This interview is cross posted with our blog Born in the Sixites: The First Year of Dowling College, 1968-69.
