Two St. Olaf alumni are included on Minnesota Public Radio’s list of "25 Influential Minnesotans in Washington": Mary Kendall ‘78 (at right), inspector general of the Interior Department, and Robert Petzel ‘65, under secretary for health at the Veteran's Administration.

"While few of these names are familiar to most people in Minnesota," states MPR, "these 25 people are making an impact in Washington, D.C."
