Welcome back to The Ear, The Eye’s podcast dedicated to documenting, detailing, and excavating Columbia’s history!

This week’s episode is the second in a two-part series about the historical role of chaplains at Columbia. Grace Holleman follows Bill Starr’s continuing legacy at Columbia, which spanned nearly all of the second half of the 20th century. During his tenure, Starr provided meeting spaces and support to student activists and served as a singular model of social and spiritual guidance.
