YU Chronicles: Louis Feldman – Classics Professor Seeks Beauty in Ancient History

Louis Feldman carefully straightens piles of tattered books and files that smother his tiny formica desk as if each formed a time capsule. On the desktop piles of syllabi, nearly 2 feet high, abut stapled lexicons of ancient Greek and Latin—handouts he prepares for classes that often number one or two students. Nearby, a refrigerator, rusty from disuse, seems just another artifact in Feldman’s universe.
