Craig Barto wrote to us in February 2005: "After retiring from a career as a cryptologic and intelligence officer in the United States Navy, a field where my degree obviously served me well, I am now a professor of English at Charleston Southern University in Charleston SC. The courses which I found most valuable and applicable in my career in the intelligence community were Prof. Stammler's Main Currents of Russian Thought." (03/2001)
