Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks visited campus Monday for an informal interview with President Alison Byerly and Donald Miller, John Henry MacCraken Professor of History. He talked about his education, craft, and WWII projects, and then took questions from students in the audience. The next day he met with Miller’s history students and discussed his preparation for roles in movies such as Saving Private Ryan and his involvement in the upcoming HBO miniseries Masters of the Air based on Miller’s book. He later sat down for lunch with Byerly, Miller, and small group of students.
