Frederick M. Watkin, professor of political Science at Yale University, arrived yesterday as the first member of a faculty exchange between Berkeley College and Dunster House. Watkin is spending two days visiting informally with the House residents.
The idea for such an interchange originated on a similar visit made at Berkeley by Carl J. Friedrich, Eaton Professor of the Science of Government, and an associate of Dunster. A grant from the Ford Foundation has been appropriated by the House to cover the expenses of Watkin's stay.
Gordon M. Fair, Master of Dunster House, called the visit an experiment which, if successful, might establish a precedent for a continuing faculty exchange between the two Houses. He stressed the importance of "informal contact between students and the visiting professor."
