ON THE COVER: In this issue's cover article, "Reflections," Sarah Chambers'04 writes about her experience on the transplant harvest team, Aaron Sylvan Lord'07 and Lisa Schneider'07 share the essay and poem they delivered at this year's memorial service for individuals who donated their bodies to Columbia, David Forrest'64 pays tribute to colleague and fellow alumnus George McCormack'48, and Peter Marcovici'05 dispatches photos taken during a third-year clerkship in Arizona. The array of contributions and the profiles that follow of doctor-musician Eamonn Vitt'02 and novelist Dusty Thomason'03 illustrate the creative depth of P&S students and graduates.
