You didn’t conduct business deals in The California Club dining room. That was the rule.
But that didn’t mean that you couldn’t take someone there and talk about business over a nice lunch. You just had to finish the actual deal somewhere else.
I liked the Club, and it seemed like a good, pleasant place to have lunch with Marian Miner Cook and talk to her about an important CMC campaign: a new home for our Athenaeum.
It was a homecoming of sorts at the Athenaeum for Steve Bullock ’88, Governor of Montana and a Politics Philosophy Economics major during his days at CMC.
“Thirty years ago this past fall is when I first walked onto this campus,” he told attendees at an Ath presentation this week that he whimsically named: “How to Get a Job like Mine (and would you really want it?)”
The revolutionary changes of the 1990s -- the collapse of the Berlin Wall, the Polish Solidarity movement's sweeping influence across the Soviet bloc -- are far from secure today, Adam Michnik told a large audience Tuesday night in the Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum.
Mussorgsky, Mt. Baldy, childhood memories — a new mural by acclaimed artist Mary Weatherford captures a range of her emotions and reactions, especially her responses to Claremont's landscape and environment.
Tuesday night the mural's installation in the Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum was celebrated with a dinner and talk held in the Security Pacific Dining room, where the 117" high x 234 " wide canvas covers an entire section of the room's southern wall.
