Harpur College paid tribute to one of its greatest scholars when the Kenneth C. Lindsay Study Room officially opened in the University Art Museum on Oct. 11. “This is a room in which we will be able to renew the kind of art-history teaching that Ken believed in so much,” said John Tagg, professor of art history and comparative literature. “It is teaching that begins with the encounter between the student and the object or the artifact.”
