Now, as he leaves the editorship of The Southwest Review, after 32 years, and contemplates a retirement from teaching as well, after 45 years, former students of Professor Spiegelman are organizing an event in his honor.  Please join us on Homecoming weekend as we celebrate the profound impact Professor Spiegelman has had on alumni and the University.
