Jane Shadel Spillman, '64
As a history major, class of 1964, I want to say that I found the professors, Carl N. Degler and Donald Olsen particularly inspiring and enjoyed the classes I did with both of them. James Bruce Ross was also an excellent teacher. I came to Vassar from the Tennessee public school system and was totally unprepared for the type of study there. However, I found the push to have us look at original documents instead of textbooks particularly inspiring. It made me love history even more.
