Wendy Koenig, associate professor of art, has long been interested in Holocaust studies and found a new dimension to research as she visits museums: the atmosphere created by sound and sound design. "I realized I'd never read anything about sound in this field," she says. That inspired her to spend the past two summers experiencing and evaluating the use of sound in Holocaust museums in Skokie, IL, Washington, D.C., Augusta, ME, Detroit and at the Holocaust Tower at the Jewish Museum in Berlin, Germany.
June 24, 2011—North Central College recently announced that Diane Anstine, associate professor and chair of economics, was named the first holder of the Mary Schneller Rosar Professor of Economics endowed chair.
The new endowed chair was made possible by the generosity of alumnae Mary Schneller Rosar, Class of 1933, and her sister Cecelia Schneller Mueller, Class of 1927.
