The Bracketts moved to Hamilton in 1963, when Tom joined the Colgate faculty in the Chemistry department. In 1966 Liz was asked to teach for a member on sabbatical leave and stayed as an active member of the faculty until 1993. In 1969, in cooperation with Jim Reynolds, a member of the Psychology department, Tom submitted a proposal to the National Science Foundation to start a program in Computer Studies. The years from 1970 to 1980 saw rapid pace of change as the program sought to keep up with the burgeoning computer revolution. Colgate became one of the first liberal arts colleges to offer a computer science program.
In 1992, Tom and Liz visited a refigee camp in Thailand just across the border from Burma. There they became acquainted with the Karen people and the tragic story of their struggle against the military forces of Burma. Since that time they have dedicated their lives to help these and other refugee people from Burma. They invite you to investigate their website and learn more.
