Will Hamlin Interview, 1995

Will Hamlin Interview, 1995

Goddard Videos

Will Hamlin taught at Goddard from 1948 to 2001. He cared deeply about literature, art, education and the natural world, and served Goddard for fifty years in his renaissance fashion.  He was passionate about education and the philosophy of education. Versed in Dewey, Kilpatrick and other luminaries of the progressive education movement, he worked to realize their ideas at Goddard with the students he mentored and taught, as well as other faculty and staff.  For decades, he worked as the College’s editor, writing and editing the catalogue, the Goddard Bulletin, and other publications.  Will loved language, and tended to its details and precise usage.  He crafted the ideas of Tim Pitkin and his other colleagues into articulate prose that represented their vision in the larger world.  When focus at the College sometimes drifted from the ideals of progressive education, Will reminded his colleagues and students – sometimes none too gently – of the importance of Goddard’s mission, and its stewardship of larger principles.  We are grateful for his lasting contributions to the College. Will passed away on August 4th, 2009.
