My freshman roommate (Chris Christopher) and I took a 300 level philosophy course with Professor Bates in the fall of 1974 (our first semester on campus). His class was a fantastic introduction to Middlebury College and he was an incredible teacher. I ended up majoring in Physics and Chris in Geography, a long way from Philosophy, but the class was so good that I still remember it fondly after 40 years. What a great way to start at Middlebury, thanks Professor Bates.
