In these excerpts from a longer oral history, Kevin talks about life on campus in the late sixties as well as the twin influences of Johann Gschwendtner and Norman Holub. These two teachers of physics and history, respectively, inform his work still. You'll also hear about Kevin's time as a codebreaker with military intelligence in Vietnam, being caught in the Easter Offensive of 1972, and what it was like coming home.

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