WHO, WHAT, WHEN


SEATED DIGNITARY? Do you recognize the national figure sitting in the chair at the right? What was she doing with these Skidmore students, and when? If you have an answer, tell us the story at 518-580-5747, srosenbe@skidmore.edu, or Scope c/o Skidmore College. We’ll report answers, and run a new quiz, in the upcoming Scope magazine.


FROM LAST TIME


Gone fishin’? Andrew Nolen Pfeifer ’10 is betting this depicts water sampling in Loughberry Lake, the main reservoir for Sara - toga Springs. He also bets the researchers are lowering a patterned Secchi disk to gauge the depth of visibility—which translates to turbidity—of the water. He even takes a stab at the photo’s vintage, guessing 1998. (Pretty good: it was ac- tually shot in 1995.) Pfeifer’s only question: “Where are they going with that suit- case?” And, he adds, “Why didn’t I get to bring a fishing pole when I did this work?”


For John Thomas, professor emeritus of chemistry, this quiz is “way too easy!” He recognizes David Porter, Skidmore presi- dent from 1987 to 1999, riding along in the bow with summer collaborative researchers Hillary Frey ’97 and geo- sciences professor Dick Lin- demann. Thomas says they were on Loughberry Lake to develop a project for a Skidmore environmental- science course.
