Personal Commentary

The most enjoyable experience I ever had was the time I spent at SJSU as teacher and later as a part of the administration. The atmosphere of freedom I experienced there reminded me continually of my undergraduate days at Stanford University where "the winds of freedom blow." What better guide could prevail in one's chosen profession!
