Welcome our visiting ATRs! Ask them if they met me. Tell them I am usually found in 215 during the day.

Our UNION Man of the Century

“I consider it important, indeed urgently necessary, for intellectual workers to get together, both to protect their own economic status and also, generally speaking, to secure their influence in the political field.”

“But intellectual workers should unite, not only in their own interest but also and no less importantly in the interest of society as a  whole.”
