The Passage

Spanning more than four decades and 1,100 miles, the journey of brothers Alan ’74 and Andy Dappen ’76 from Whitman College students to daring adventurers became the subject of a short film, “The Passage,” created by Alan's son, Nathan and released on YouTube in June 2018. A dream to paddle their canoes, built in the basement of the student union, through the inland passage of the Pacific coastline, was finally realized in the summer of 2017.
