The opening scenes are of a lunch and dinner in Princeton on December 1, 2007 of the interview committee, composed of former Sachs Scholars, who selected Pauline Yeung as the Scholar from the Class of 2008. The interview took place the following day in Charles Gillispie H 60's apartment.

A monumental stone building remains long beyond the form of its namer's dust. But the fragile, decaying matter of human lives, connected in ordinary ways, prevails. Not merely prevails, but grows. Daniel M. Sachs, Princeton Class of 1960, was a mighty footballer and a top-honors student. He attended Worcester College, Oxford, on a Rhodes Scholarship, and then Harvard Law School, and then married and had a daughter. At age 28, he died of cancer. At his death about forty years ago, Dan Sachs' friends and classmates established a fund to support Dan's family. They provided that, if Dan's family's needs were met, remaining funds would be for a scholarship in Dan's name. Thus the Daniel M. Sachs Class of 1960 Graduating Scholarship arose. To Charles and Emily Gillispie, thank you for so carefully remembering Dan Sachs.
