Notable “Wesleyan” Alumni

This article was a collaboration with smello.

According to the university’s website, “Wesleyan graduates are successful in every profession imaginable, including law, science, medicine, business, politics, and the creative arts. They are often leaders and innovators in their fields”. With all the recent focus on Lin-Manuel Miranda, we thought we’d shed some light on the other people who made the name “Wesleyan” famous.

Wesleyan Filmmaker Wants Your ’90s Treasures

Danny Witkin ’13 wants your assorted ’90s memorabilia. This is not a drill. Unfortunately, my sweet “Reelect the First Family in ’96” magnet just misses the cut:

Do you possess some awesome detritus from the Clinton years? The pre-Dubya Bush years? If so, consider this: Sam Barth ’13 is making a movie, DIAL-UP, about the early 1990s. Mr. Barth will sincerely appreciate anything you are willing to lend him until Thanksgiving. He will care for it as if it was a cherished memento of his own childhood. In addition, he might just give your memorabilia its big break.

If you have: awesome posters, toys, action figures, furniture, miscellany, as well as a generous heart, please contact Danny Witkin at dzwitkin(at)wesleyan(dot)edu.
