Northern Exposure T.V. Series
From time to time residents from Dartmouth Medical School met with Les Havens for supervision. Apparently a group of them wrote a few episodes for the T.V. series Northern Exposure in which they cast Lester Haynes, the Indian wise man modeled after Leston Havens and played by Apesanahkwat, a Native American actor.
Joel Fleischman (played by Rob Morrow) is the central character, a young, somewhat uptight, Jewish doctor from Manhattan (New York City) who is contractually bound to practice in the remote Alaskan town of Cicely for four years to repay a student loan from the state. The comedy centers originally on the clash between Fleischman’s neurotic, almost Woody Allen-like, urban mindset and the easy-going, community-minded people around him. As time went on, the show focus shifted to the quirky characters of the town.
