Tom Grey '79

"I've often had occasion to think back fondly on my variegated comp. lit. major at Dartmouth (German, music, some French and Italian, assorted poetry and drama) — which distinctly paved the route to later career developments."

I went on to a PhD program in music history at University of California Berkeley (1980-87) and have been teaching in music depts. (UCLA, Stanford) since 1988. Here at Stanford — I have been involved with various interdisciplinary humanities programs, serving on English, German, History thesis and exam committees in addition to music; and aside form the music history and theory courses I do in the dept. I have often been teaching seminars on (e.g.) music and mythology, music in German lit. and philosophy, Shakespeare and music, etc. all of which continue the music and literature thread I had started to spin back in Dartmouth days.
