An investigation into Byers’ previous examinations revealed that he had also asked other bizarre questions such as one about the Ku Klux Klan.

The lethal dose for humans is approximately 300. mg of HCN per kilogram of air when inhaled,” Byers’s question began. “Calculate the g of HCN that would give a lethal dose in the above room,” the second part of the question added.

In a statement, Middlebury President Laurie Patton wrote that Byers’ Holocaust question reflected a significant lapse in judgment. “This inexplicable failure of judgment trivializes one of the most horrific events in world history, violates core institutional values, and simply has no place on our campus,” Patton wrote. “We expect our faculty to teach and lead with...
