UNC Professor Remembers Robin Williams


A retired professor of computer science at UNC, Stephen Weiss, got the chance of a lifetime in 1998, to sit and watch the magic of Robin Williams film Patch Adams: “I sat in Gerrard Hall for six days—about 12- or 14-hour days—to shoot that one, ten minute scene toward the end of the movie.” Weiss says he met Williams: shook his hand, and had a short conversation with him about the University.
