The Misadventures of Marvin

Marvin Druger

Paper $17.95    |    978-0-8156-0949-0    |    2010

"A witty reminiscence from an unforgettable professor who made biology exciting and fun for 40,000 undergraduates over the years—a delightful read!"
—Nancy Cantor, chancellor and president of Syracuse University

As Henry Ford said, life is a series of experiences. We learn from everything that we do, and everything that we do becomes part of what we are. In his fifty-five years of teaching biology and fifty-two years of marriage to Pat, a retired administrator for the Syracuse University writing program, Druger has shaped his experiences with his boundless energy, quick wit, and tireless sense of adventure. With humor and refreshing candor, Druger reflects on his many "misadventures" in this charming memoir. He shares classroom anecdotes of his efforts to make science fun and part of his students’ everyday lives. Druger offers insights on nurturing a successful marriage, on the value of childhood friendships, and on the perils and unexpected rewards of aging. The Misadventures of Marvin, both hilarious and heartfelt, is a unique depiction of life’s trials and bounties, one that will resonate with and inspire many readers.

Marvin Druger is professor emeritus of biology and science education, retiring after forty-seven years at Syracuse University. He served as president of the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) and of the Association for Science Teacher Education (ASTE), and twice served as president for the Society for College Science Teachers (SCST). He is the recipient of the Robert Carleton Award from NSTA and the Honorary Emeritus Member Award from ASTE. He is the author of Strange Creatures and Other Poems, a book of poetry for children of all ages.
