During his Montgomery Fellow residency in October, Emmy-winning actor Alan Alda shared his science communication insights with more than 200 undergraduates and two master classes for graduate students and faculty members.
Generations of television viewers remember Alan Alda for his Emmy-winning performance as Hawkeye Pierce on the 1970s show M*A*S*H, for his role as a presidential candidate on The West Wing, and for playing Alec Baldwin’s father on 30 Rock.
Legendary filmmaker Werner Herzog returns to Dartmouth this week for a five-day Montgomery Fellow residency.
