    Where? Are you sure? I am fairly familiar with Strauss's career and I've never come across that. I do have his CV at home so I can double check. AFAIK, he was at the New School from 1939 to 1949, then Chicago from 1949-67, Claremont 67-69, and St. John's, 69-73. His only visiting stints that I know of were Stanford (I believe,'60) and Hebrew Univ, (can't remember when this was)

    I think he means ( I can't put stuff in a quote box):

    In 1939, he served for a short term as a visiting professor at Hamilton College

    wow, OK, never knew that. Jaffa did not meet him until 1944 or 45.

    an Indian kid on Park Ave stopped me today and said "Thank you for being so handsome." Would have been more meaningful had it been a chick but still.

    Not that I have read all these, but I thought this old, long post would be useful: http://www.styleforum.net/t/90695/essential-works-of-non-fiction#post_1509931
