    In 1954, Bowdoin freshman had the obligation to take English4, Public Speaking. It was my first real opportunity to speak to a group about a variety of topics. My section was taught by Pat Quinby who directed theater at the College for many years. The speech I remember best and which awed me the most was by Dave Osgood of the Class of ’54. The subject of his talk was the trip he took on The Bowdoin the summer before our freshman year. It brought to light the extraordinary opportunities that exist in this world and also the relationship that Bowdoin, the college, has to the Arctic and the environment.
