When Bill Carpenter read the notice announcing the College of the Atlantic, he wrote them to warn of the imbalance that a strictly scientific education without any study of the humanities would provide. A few meetings later, Bill would be the first faculty hired by the College.

Today, Bill is the only faculty that remains of the original staff. His enthusiasm and energy shone through as he talked to us about the ecological movements of the 70s and their shifting ideas to today, the radical true political histories of the park and the island, and his new plan to develop a life philosophy. This was the pose he offered when we asked for a photo.
