In Fords in Four, we ask an alumnus four questions; he shares insights and stories. In this blog post, we interviewed two alumni, Erich J. Prince ’13 and Henri Mattila ’13, co-founders of the publication Merion West. The two men recount memorable experiences and lessons learned from their time at Haverford; discuss what led them to found Merion West, a nonpartisan publication that was started to bring a new and independent voice to the current media environment; and give advice to current students about how they can best serve the world.
