I remember Philip Stearns. I was in his class in my senior year, 1975-76. The class was on English literature.

In some ways Philip was unconventional. I remember on "senior skip day" '76, he didn't anticipate any kids arriving in his class. Some teachers expected kids to show up that day but not him. I passed by his room, and saw him sitting down talking to somebody. I definitely got the impression he didn't expect to teach class on "skip" day. Philip was also less inhibited than most other faculty members. Once he pointed out that it's OK for a man to have more than one woman but what do they call a woman with more than one man? I think he wrote on the blackboard the answers he got--"s***, b****, w****."

Stearns' class wasn't a top priority for me. One day around the spring of '76 I was reading a book for western civ in his class. Noticing this, Philip got annoyed and gave the whole class a ton of homework. I was mad but he looked right back at me; obviously it was my fault. Most if the time Stearns looked at me favorably, knowing I was more knowledgeable than most kids.
