Public Figures and the Humanities: My Dante

The Gould Center for Humanistic Studies welcomes Steven L. Hallgrimson '64 to CMC to deliver the third talk in this fall's "Public Figures and the Humanities" series. The program features public figures' discussion of the impact that enduring works in the humanities have had on their own personal and professional growth. Mr. Hallgrimson will speak on what the works of Dante Alighieri have meant to him.

Following his graduation from CMC in 1964, Steven Hallgrimson attended Boalt Hall, University of California at Berkeley, graduating in 1968. A partner in the San Jose law firm of Hallgrimson, McNichols, McCann & Inderbritzen, Mr. Hallgrimson is a major stockholder and director of Celluphone, Inc., a Los Angeles-based wholesaler of cellular telephone equipment and an agent for Pacific Telephone. Hallgrimson and two law partners also own and operate the hotel and recreational facilities in Bear Valley, which includes 350 acres of cross-country skiing, cattle operations, ice skating, mountain biking, and other facilities attached to the downhill ski resort.

Mr. Hallgrimson has taught at San Jose University for a number of years in the Graduate School of Business. He has also lectured extensively to continuing education classes for both lawyers and CPAs in the real estate and tax areas. He is currently participating in Stanford's continuing education program in a class entitled "Humanism and the Renaissance."
