Academics Tim Little— History
As a graduate student, Tim specialized in English, Irish and modern European history, areas in which his interest remains high. However, he has sponsored senior Plans on topics ranging from modern Japan to Imperial India. He has also been a mainstay of the World Studies Program, having co-taught the introductory world history seminar, along with Dana Howell, for many years.
Community Service and Professional Activities
As First Selectman of the College Town Meeting during the mid-sixties, as alumnus and trustee, as Dean of Students and Dean of Admissions for a total of seven years, and as a Marlboro faculty member, Tim has participated in nearly every phase of Marlboro life. In the early days, nearly all Marlboro students, but virtually no staff or faculty, lived on campus; therefore, Tim’s responsibilities as First Selectman spilled over to include the morale and welfare of the entire community. He met the challenge skillfully enough to be appointed Dean of Students soon after graduation.
When Tim left Marlboro for graduate study, first at the University of Vermont and later at the University of Rochester, he sat on the Marlboro Board of Trustees (1969 - 1974) and contributed to important decisions about Marlboro’s future.
