News from our Alums: Van Holland (BA 1969, MA 1970)

Submitted by Michael Neininger on
Denny Hall


   I graduated in 1969 in German and got my MA in German at the UW in 1970 and was a TA that year.  I graduated from UW Law School in 1972 and then had a career in the food industry – semi retiring this week after 45 years.  I was an exchange student in Munich in 1965/66 in 11th grade and visited some old friend there in the summer of 2016 and have been in touch with them for over 50 years.  I read a book a month in German, so that I don’t lose it.  Have lived in LA since 1974, but I visit Seattle often with family there and love to walk on campus – especially past Denny Hall.  Fond memories.

Auf Wiedersehen,

Van Holland
