Commencement speaker Prof. Frank Trommler's statement, "The study of foreign languages in their cultural context (is) an indispensable part of the humanities" really rang a bell with me. The year I spent in Spain with the Midd group, during the 1950's and the Franco dictatorship, was so much more meaningful than just learning from lectures and a book! It also can make us proud that he called Midd "the premier academic institution of advanced language teaching and learning in the U.S.". I certainly value the summer at the Vermont campus and the classes at Miguel Angel,8 and the University of Madrid. Eunice Smith Laughlin MA'57
