    Can we confirm that this isn't the James Williams who was a Blue and White senior editor and wrote two Varsity Shows? The b/30 part suggests that it isn't, but if you're reading this James, please confirm for us that you're still alive. Thanks!

    • Anyone?  

      What could be more likely, though I desperately hope not, is that it's a James Williams of that age and race who has worked as a low-level officer in a bunch of different University offices. I know a few years ago he was working in Student Financial Services in Kent Hall, but I don't think he's still employed by Columbia. Can anyone confirm that this isn't him??

    He definitely is not still employed by Colunbia.

    I am disgusted with myself for that. Much too soon.
