Everett Charles Albers was the founding director of Humanities North Dakota. Ev brought his love of the humanities to the greatest challenge of his life, his diagnosis of pancreatic cancer in September 2002. Given three months to live, Everett lived and worked for another 18 months, while also writing daily, on-line journal entries in which he reflected on the people and experiences of his life, books and music, pie and the great humanities question of all time: "Where have we been, and where are we going?"
In honor of Ev's legacy and our GameChanger Ideas Festival theme of the Pursuit of Health & Happiness, Humanities ND is re-issuing Ev's blog beginning on September 20, 2018. We will post a new entry each day.
