That's quite literal for Dudley-Eshbach -- her academic career has taken her as far as Mexico, but she is returning to the state where she was born, to the Delmarva Peninsula where she grew up, not far from the beaches where she has taken family vacations since childhood. "I always like the feeling of sand between my toes," says Dudley-Eshbach, the new president of Salisbury State University.

David Scott, currently enjoying a retrospective exhibit at Salisbury State University, has had a dual career as artist and art administrator. Now 80, he spent his early career during the 1930s and 1940s as what he calls a "realist in perception, a romantic in mood."His self-portrait titled "Drafted" was painted in 1942. After service in World War II he returned to painting and his work became more abstract. Then, from the 1960s to the 1980s, he was an art administrator in Washington. From 1964 to 1969 he was director of the National Collection of Fine Arts, now the National Museum of American Art.In the 1970s and early 1980s he was at the National Gallery, where he first coordinated gallery planning during the development of I.

JOE GILBERT'S latest course offering at Salisbury State University almost makes you want to repeat college.This fall, the college lecturer's students will earn a semester's credit for sauntering in and about Henry David Thoreau's Walden Pond and woods near Concord, Mass.Don't mistake "saunter" to mean Gilbert's students will simply be lolling about as they canoe, swim, hike and observe.Thoreau, who had to deal with plenty of people who confused his nature tramps with vagrancy, practically reinvented the word saunter in a spirited essay, "Walking," completed near his death in 1862.
