“Magical” Professor Albert Mavrinac Dies

Albert Mavrinac, who was the chair of the government department at Colby from 1958 to 1982, died last Thursday at Thayer Hospital in Waterville.

“Of all the teachers I ever had, he was by far the best,” [Doris Kearns] Goodwin said in a phone interview last night. “He had this magical way of teaching that made us feel that if we could truly understand what he was saying — he was always a step beyond us — you would understand truth and justice.”
