About Our Guest Speaker, Prof. Paul Grimstad

One student described how Paul Grimstad made Edgar Allan Poe so alive in his class that it felt almost as though the author was a close friend. Grimstad, honored with the 2104 Sarai Ribicoff ’79 Award for Teaching Excellence in Yale College, inspires a love of learning in his students simply by sharing his own excitement and enthusiasm, and he, in turn, is fueled by the intellectual curiosity and intensity of the Yale undergraduates he teaches.
