Description

Interview with John MacTavish by Barbara Roos, documenting the history of Grand Valley State's William James College. William James College was the third baccalaureate degree granting college for Grand Valley. It was originally designed to be an interdisciplinary, non-departmentalized college consisting of concentration programs, rather than majors. The college opened in 1971 and was discontinued in 1983 during a reorganization of Grand Valley State. John MacTavish was faculty member of GVSC who was hired to teach Geology courses in 1968 and later transitioned to planning and teaching for William James College beginning in 1971. In this interview, John discusses the lessons learned from William James College, how he valued being a part of the experience, and his earliest memories of the college. This interview is part 1 of 3 for John MacTavish.
