Biographical / Historical
The Sloan Foundation operated a program designed to increase the presence of technology in liberal arts colleges, ca. 1985-1993. Donald Beaver directed the program, joined for part of the time by Professor of Physics Stuart Crampton as co-director. Williams received $250,000 for a first 5 year grant, and another $250,000 for a renewal grant, with matching funds from the College. As a result technology in liberal arts courses increased at Williams. One of the most successful and long lasting was Professor Larry Kaplan's Chemistry and Crime, which focused on forensic chemistry.
