This interview has been modified and modeled after Vanity Fair’s Proust Questionnaire. The purpose of the Questionnaire is to delve into the qualities that define an individual’s personality.  My Wednesday morning guest is Spencer Huie ‘20: rower, intellectual, class tall boy. In his free time, Spencer enjoys going to the beach and playing the piano.
