In his work as an ER physician, geologist, and professional mountaineer, Dr. Steve Boyer '64 has joined eight Himalayan (third American to summit Annapurna) and four polar expeditions, and done medical work in South and Central America, Antarctica, Africa, and Asia. His most challenging assignments have been with Medical Teams International to Afghanistan, Darfur, and most recently the DRC (Congo), where he travelled across rebel controlled areas doing assessments before crossing into SW Uganda to treat arriving refugees. Steve is also board chairman for education projects in Guatemala and Afghanistan. He says the transition from Wyoming sheep ranch to Webb and beyond was possible only with encouragement from late Webb alum Dr. Malcolm McKenna '48.
Join the conversation. The Spring/Summer issue of WEBB Magazine is in the mail and on its way to you. In it we explore Webb’s new innovative curriculum—an educational experience being talked about across the country. From the newly invigorated core curriculum that includes The American Idea and Evolutionary Biology, to the ONLY AT WEBB series of Honors and Advanced Studies courses featuring Advanced Studies in Biotechnology and Honors Ethics & Modern Global Affairs—the Webb program is engaging students in field study and independent research work like never before.
