NEW COLLEGE, SARASOTA, FLORIDA FURMAN C. ARTHUR INFORMATION FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE The "commuting professor" of New College boarded her final northbound plane this week, took a long look at her experiences during the past term, and said she would like to repeat her novel teaching experience. Dr. Emily Mumford, visiting professor in sociology, since September has been on campus from Monday afternoon to Thursday noon every week, spending the rest of her time in New York with her husband and doing a considerable amount of writing and research. Dr. Mumford ended her teaching duties Thursday and with the Christmas vacation at New College to be followed by student independent study projects during January, she looked forward to only one more visit to campus. She will return late in January to go over special papers students have written during the month under her guidance and also to meet Dr Jerome Himelhoch, professor of sociology, who will be joining the faculty and will take over her classes. "Alive, moving, changing, with a tremendous potential," were the words she used to describe her feelings about Ne'" College. -more-


New College -Dr. Mumford Page 2 Hhile at New College Dr. Mumford lived in the ne\-' residence halls with the students and spoke highly of the required residence of all students on campus. "This is an advantage many students do not get," said Dr. Mumford. "Often after a seminar we broke up and went to lunch together to continue our discussion." This, she admitted, is taxing on the faculty, but it means a lot to the students even though they may not realize it at the time. She also found the weekly evening faculty-student discussions exciting and said that these provided a reo! chance for both groups to extend the classroom situation to more hours of the day. In three months of commuting weekly bet\-'een Net-' College and New York, only once did she have transportation troubles. On one trip, a plane was cancelled for repairs, a second one could not land in New York, and went on to Boston. This made her 11 hours late on a 2 1/2 hour flight. Back in Net-' York she goes rir;ht to tvork again with one book almost finished, one with four chapters done, and a research project that will take a considerable amount of time. Before taking a leave of absence, she was professor of sociology and dean of students on the Bronx campus of Hunter College. She and her husband, a psychiatrist, make their home on Hanhattan. -30-
