Whitney Griswold

  • A Little Learning

    Students at Phillips Academy, Andover, were privileged last spring to hear the Stearns lecture delivered by PRESIDENT WHITNEY GRISWOLD of Yale. For its good humor and the challenging common sense with which he fronts up to the shortages in American education, his address deserves to be read from coast to coast. President Griswold came to his authority after being educated at Hotchkiss and at Yale and after long and varied teaching experience. He was director of Army foreign area and civil affairs training programs during the last war, and has served more than ten years on three school boards.

  • Survival Is Not Enough

    WHITNEY GRISWOLD,who is serving his first year as the President of Yale University, came to his authority after being educated at Hotchkiss and at Yale and after long and varied teaching experience. He was director of army foreign area and civil affairs training programs during the last war, and has served more than ten years on three school boards. In the paper which follows he defines the crisis now facing every American college and university. He suggests a program for those boys who will want to study after their military service, and he tells us that survival will not be enough if we allow ourselves to became a colossus without education.
