Peter Brush’s Yale University dissertation

February 1, 2012

Hi, I recently came across former Deerfield teacher Peter Brush’s Yale University dissertation, ‘Cicero’s Poetry’, and wanted to share part of his preface, dated August, 1970. It ends with a kind word and a joke: ‘Special warm thanks belong to my friends and students at Deerfield Academy, who have provided a congenial place to work and encouragement, and who, for some unknown reason, have persisted in their belief that I have been up to some good.’
