Matt Weiner '87, creator and writer of Mad Men, regaled an engaged Wesleyan crowd of 280 with insights into the TV business, comments on connections between COL syllabus and Don Draper's reading, and the back story of his ill-fated poetry thesis. In addition to a special anonymous gift of $600,000, the evening brought in almost $37,000 in ticket receipts – all for scholarships!
