Profiles

  • In 1998, Kayla Fioravanti went on a mission to rid her 4-year-old son Keegan of a persistent case of ringworm near his eye. She rubbed on over-the-counter ointments and tried prescription treatments, but nothing cured the fungal infection.
  • In a stark white room, the exposed mechanisms of more than 100 music boxes grace the walls and seem to sparkle with sound. Visitors move slowly along the room’s perimeter, mesmerized by the unique sounds of miniature tines on metal.
  • Two weeks before he headed off to college, Román D. Hernández was harvesting onions for 16 cents a bushel in rural eastern Oregon.“Now the process is automated,” he says. “Back then, people worked bent over close to the ground or on their knees.”
  • “Mom, I don’t want any toys for Christmas.

  • In 1970, when Chris Mills M.A.T. ‘84 was 15, he took a summer job as coach of a junior baseball team. Rain or shine, he taught elementary-age boys the basics of fielding, switching up pitches, and smacking one out of the park—or at least past the infield. A constant focus was teamwork.
