"Academic departments have their own "lives". They are not actual biological entities, but they consist of the dynamic mixture of the people-faculty, staff, students-who live and work in them, and each individual faculty, staff and student there over the lifetime of the department constitutes a part of it; kind of like cells, organs, components, etc., of a living organism".
-Don Ethridge 2009

The interviews here are an attempt "to keep from losing more of our sense of history for the department..."
