EM 1

Name: Erik Magnuson’12
Majors:
History/studio art.
Hometown:
Seattle, Wash.
You may have seen me:
Working in the Art Annex, drawing in the Roundtable office, or loitering around Rob LaFleur’s office.
What are a few of your favorite things?
Saw dust; road bikes; smoked salmon; books about the frontier; and puppies.
What three items go in your desert island backpack?
Stephen Fry, I’ll make him fit. A kettle and tea. It will be great… until we get hungry.
Who are your heroes? Ernest Shackleton, Arctic explorer extraordinaire; Ivar Haglund, Seattle folk-hero extraordinaire.
What’s your favorite hidden gem here in the area?
The dilapidated bridge behind Cub Foods (R.I.P) is a real gem. There are some interesting folks that hang around there, neat old stuff, and the river.
