Video: Gathering in tribute to Peter Gomes '65 at Reunion 2011

At Reunion 2011, friends and former colleagues of the late Rev. Professor Peter Gomes ’65 gather to say goodbye to a man who, in the words of Professor Emeritus of Religion Carl Benton Straub, “did what he did, hoped what he hoped out of his audacious and confounding freedom as a Christian man.”

Also offering remarks were President Elaine Tuttle Hansen; Marshall Hatch ’10, admission counselor; Jamie Merisotis ’86, trustee; James Lawson P’13, friend; and Bill Hiss ’66, Bates contemporary and longtime college administrator.

The tribute concluded with pianist Frank Glazer offering the Postlude, Chopin’s Polonaise-Fantaisie, Opus 61.
