In Response to: A Combustible Mix 

Having just read the article about Maitland Jones (“A Combustible Mix,” December issue), I heartily agree with the conclusion espoused by Jon Miller ’07. Professor Jones’ “Organic Chemistry” course was undoubtedly in the class of the most outstanding courses in my undergraduate experience. The intellectual rigor and unceasing commitment to excellence espoused by Jones embodied the essence of a liberal arts education — that is, learning how to think. Although I followed a nonmedical career path (music), that course was absolutely worthwhile, and truly inspirational.
