University of Oregon Economics Professor Bill Harbaugh stopped, composing his thoughts. A good minute ticked by. Harbaugh, a tenured faculty member with a high forehead and shock of white hair, gazed past students passing a busy lunch restaurant Wednesday across from campus.
There was his job to consider, and the fates of the two archivists whose decision to release 22,000 pages of presidential records put them at risk of their jobs. There was the assertion by Scott Coltrane, UO interim president, that the documents were unlawfully released because they contained confidential faculty, student and staff information.
