Coolidge College

Coolidge College Dust JacketCoolidge College is a romantic comedy, written by Floyd Kemske in 1994. It takes place in 1986. It is about a broken-down liberal arts college in Vermont that is bought by a man who wants to use it to advance the cause of supply-side economics.

The main characters are Jones Ferguson, chair of the Department of Business and Economics at Coolidge College, and Sydney Hofstadter, former marketing manager for Bikini Light Beer, who has just been hired as Dean of Admissions.

A secondary story concerns Barton McChesney, the new owner (and now president) of Coolidge College, his wife Arlene, and her pet ferrets.

Coolidge College has never been published in a print edition. The “dust jacket” at the left was designed and drawn by Floyd Kemske, who has always wanted to design a dust jacket. It depicts the seal of Coolidge College, which incorporates the image of a ferret.
