Changing Higher Education

An interesting tribute to a professor who successfully navigated an earlier era of change.

Higher education is certainly experiencing tremendous and often fundamental changes nowadays. This isn't the first era in which such changes have happened, however. Just today in the archives we ran across the attached document and thought we'd share it. It is a 1991 tribute by Professor Jack Crandall to Professor Art Lee who had passed away that year. It is a fascinating depiction of change; imagine going from being a professor in a Normal School, a one-building school with perhaps 300 students, to being the first chair of a separate history department in a comprehensive college of almost 10,000 students!
