Malamud at Oregon State: A Digital Humanities Project

Oregon State College Politics

Our journey through the LaVallee/Spitzer case finally brings us to the Oregon State campus. From here, we get an intimate view into the atmosphere Bernard Malamud walked into when he arrived on campus just months after the the departure of the two professors. We will explore President Strand's public statements, Profs. LaVallee and Spitzer's responses to the whole ordeal, faculty reactions to the dismissals, and a myriad of articles and letters printed in Oregon State's student newspaper, The Daily Barometer.
