Editor’s note: It’s clear that one of the many lessons Charlotte Filer ’54 taught her students was accuracy, accuracy, accuracy. And a number of them caught an error in the last issue of Linfield Magazine. Marvin Henberg wrote that “journalism became a separate major in 1970.” Many readers with journalism degrees prior to that time wrote to protest this date, the result of a typographical error which we regret. The actual date for the journalism major was 1950. As is the case with many Linfield professors, Filer gave her students much more than just class time. She became an integral part of their lives and careers and many remain in touch with her to this day.
