____ NEW COLLEGE NEWS RELEASE NEW COLLEGE, SARASOTA, FLORIDA FURMAN C. ARTHUR INFORMATION FOR RELEASE: T /lUllS D-4tj ,I Jtta! :J-j New College expanded its tutorial program this week with the announcement of two new tutors joining the faculty. A Yale graduate and a native of Florida, Samuel H. Black, will assist in the area of history and also will make his home in the residence halls. Barbara Fagan, currently completing her master's degree in the Middlebury College Graduate School of Spanish in Madrid, Spain, will be a tutor in the area of Spanish and also will assist in French. The tutorial concept at New College provides that the tutor work closely with students in particular areas, very often on an individual basis. Tutorials may either provide original work for students or represent assistance in a field taught by another faculty member. Black, a native of Atlantic Beach, will be assisting Dr. George Mayer, Professor of History, in the general area of anc;ient and Middle Eastern history. However, he also is expected to lead a seminar, perhaps in the area of the Middle East or Iran.

Black is expected to hold at least one seminar in his own resid2nce ball quarters. "Mr. Black was a counselor at Calhoun House at Yale, .. noted Dr. Eurich, "and this experience should be helpful to us as we develop our own tutor-residency plan." Black, graduated from Yale with high honor,, joins the faculty after spending a summer in New York City working in the campaign of Republican U. S. Rep. John V. Lindsay to win the election as mayor. While at Yale, Black was on the staff of the Yale Dally News, a member of the Yale crew and active both in sailing and mountain climbing. Miss Fagan will join the faculty directly from Madrid where she has completed her master's degree in the Middlebury College Spanish program. A graduate of Brooklyn College, magna cum laude, and a member of Phi Beta Kappa, Mlss Fagan spent two years as a teaching assistant at the University of California at Los Angeles and then taught for three years in a California High School. In addition to her year of residency in Spain, she spent three summers traveling and studying in Mexico and one summer in Europe. Dr. Eurich said Miss Fagan would have major responsibility for the program in Spanish and also would assist other faculty in the French program. I
