In this episode Garth and guest host Jane Halonen (University of West Florida) interview Dan Schacter from Harvard University in Cambridge, MA. Born in Brooklyn, NY, Dan’s undergraduate education occurred at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where his passion for golf continued and he studied psychology. (Later stops in his career would include the University of Toronto, the University of Arizona, and Harvard University.) The adventures in his life are numerous, including working with Alan Alda on the Scientific American Frontiers series, writing a successful book about memory while a graduate student, working in William James Hall at Harvard, and living in the same home that William James lived in for a time; serving as department chair at Harvard for 10 years, and so, so much more.
