How did William Stafford influence you?

October 07, 2013

Renowned poet, educator, and pacifist William Stafford (1914-1993), taught at Lewis & Clark for nearly 30 years and he continues to inspire our community and all who encounter his work.

In this video, Lewis & Clark alumni answer the question, “How did William Stafford influence you?”

In May 2013, Lewis & Clark launched the William Stafford Centennial. Throughout the year, we will revisit several of the poet’s publications and enjoy many associated works being produced by scholars and poets today.

Our shared reflection of words old and new will provide a foundation for the Centennial Year and beyond.
