Shultz, former dean of theGraduate School of Business (GSB) hasbeen nominated by President RonaldReagan to succeed Alexander Haig as Secretary of State.Shultz came to the University in 1957as professor of Industrial Relations in theGSB, and was made dean in 1962. Heserved as dean until 1969, when he left tobecome secretary of labor under RichardNixon. Later Nixon appointed him to twoother cabinet posts, first as director of theU.S. Office of Management and Budget,and then as secretary of the treasury.At the time of his nomination Shultzwas president of Bechtel Group, Inc., amultinational construction firm.Shultz has a reputation as a master ofconflict resolution; some of his earlyresearch was in that field, which centerson devising methods that will encouragequarreling parties to resolve disputes ontheir own."He can see how different people approach problems from different angles,"said Chauncy D. Harris, Samuel N.Harper Distinguished Service Professorand director of the Center for International Studies.Two of Shultz's former faculty colleagues have been nominated by PresidentReagan to serve with him. Kenneth W.Dam, JD'57, the provost of the University, and the Harold J. and Marion F.Green Professor in the Law School, hasbeen nominated to serve as deputy secretary of state. W. Allen Wallis, X'35, chancellor of the University of Rochester,Rochester, NY, who was dean of theGraduate School of Business from 1956 to1962, was named undersecretary of statefor economic affairs."Kenneth Dam will be as fine a deputy secretary as he is provost of the University," said Hanna H. Gray, president. "Hehas made an extraordinary and enduringcontribution to our university. Much aswe will miss him, we are fortunate in the dedication to public service of a man ofsuch broad-ranging intelligence and competence. He is a person of great judgmentand balance, thoughtful and decisive,marked by integrity and clarity of vision.His deep knowledge of international affairs, his steady and fair-minded attentionto the complexity and diversity of issuesand points-of-view, the precision withwhich he communicates positions andtheir rationales — all these are qualitieswhich characterize not only a first-ratescholar and administrator, but also anoutstanding and effective public servant."Dam, 49, has served in a variety ofgovernment positions. From 1971 to 1973he was assistant director for nationalsecurity and international affairs of theOffice of Management and Budget. In1973 he was executive director of theCouncil of Economic Policy, a Cabinet-level coordinating committee.After graduation from the LawSchool, Dam served as a law clerk to U.S.Supreme Court Justice Charles E. Whitaker.Later he practiced law in New York, before joining the Law School faculty in 1960.Dam is co-author with Shultz of thebook Economic Policy Beyond the Headlines, which described the latter's six yearsof government service.Dam's latest book, The Rules of theGame: Reform and Evolution in theInternational Monetary System, waspublished this year by the University ofChicago Press.Wallis is a long-time friend and colleague of Shultz."Shultz is bringing in people he hasrespect for and whom he can work withconstructively, rather than someone whowill go off on their own tack," commentedMilton Friedman, AM'33, the PaulSnowden Russell Distinguished ServiceProfessor in the Department of Economics, who was a graduate student here withWallis. Like Friedman, Wallis is a notedfree-market economist, and a disciple ofthe late Frank Knight, founder and dominant influence on the so-called ChicagoSchool of conservative economics. (Shultzis another adherent of Knight's views.) Charles D. O'ConnellO'CONNELL TO DIRECTALUMNI AFFAIRS,MAGAZINECharles D. O'Connell, Jr., AM'47,PhD'50, vice-president and dean of students in the University, has assumed supervision of the Office of Alumni Affairsand The University of Chicago Magazine,upon the resignation of Jonathan Fanton,vice-president for Planning, to becomepresident of the New School for SocialResearch.O'Connell, who is also associate professor in the Humanities Collegiate Division, has been an administrator at theUniversity since 1952; he has been at theUniversity since he arrived as a graduatestudent in 1946, except for a two-year hiatus in 1950-52. He was an assistant professor of English at Creighton University,Omaha, Nebraska, in 1950-51, but leftwhen he was recalled to the U.S. Armyfor duty in Korea. He returned to theUniversity in 1952 as assistant director ofadmissions. He became dean of studentsin 1967, and a vice-president in 1973.O'Connell served as a member of theSchultz Commission (the Ad Hoc Com-2 UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MACA7INF/F.II ioxtmission on Alumni Affairs), in 1979-80.O'Connell is married to the formerMargaret Norheim, PhD'62.KOUNTZ TO NEWPOST AT ROCHESTERPeter J. Kountz, AM'69, PhD'76,who has been executive director of University Alumni Affairs since 1979, has accepted a post as dean of students at theUniversity of Rochester, Rochester, NY.He will also be associate professor in theDepartment of Religious Studies.During Kountz's tenure, PresidentHanna H. Gray appointed the Ad HocCommission on Alumni Activities to reassess alumni affairs. One of Kountz's majortasks has been the implementation of thecommittee's recommendations.At the University, Kountz has alsobeen a lecturer in the Humanities Collegiate Division, special assistant to thevice-president for Planning, and curatorof Robie House.He is married to the former NanciNowicki, MBA'80.FANTON TO HEADNEW SCHOOL IN N.Y.Jonathan F. Fanton, vice-president forPlanning and resident master of Burton-Judson Courts, has resigned from theUniversity to become president of theNew School for Social Research in NewYork City.Fanton assumed his new duties onSeptember 1; he succeeds John R. Everett,who has resigned.Fanton had been at the Universitysince 1978. As vice-president forAcademic Resources and InstitutionalPlanning, Fanton has overseen the Officeof Alumni Affairs and The University ofChicago Magazine. He was instrumentalin the implementation of the recommendations of the Ad Hoc Commission onAlumni Affairs, appointed in 1979 byPresident Hanna H. Gray. During theearly part of his tenure he directeddevelopment at the University; more recently, he played a central role in thenegotiations to bring the John Crerar[Science] Library to the University, and inhelping the new Court Theatre to achievea stable base.President Hanna H. Gray said:"During the past four years, Jonathan-Fanton has contributed enormously to thelife of this university. He has played a major role in the planning of the institution'sobjectives and in their realization. Hisefforts have affected student life, alumniaffairs, and the most complex administrative matters."Prior to coming to the University,Fanton was associate provost at YaleUniversity.LEVINE NAMEDDEAN OF THE COLLEGEDonald N. Levine, AB'50, AM'54,PhD'57, a sociologist, has been appointeddean of the College effective September 15.He is the alumnus of the College to benamed dean.Donald N. Levine Levine succeeds Jonathan Z. Smith,dean since 1977, who has been named theRobert O. Anderson Distinguished Service Professor.Levine, who won the Quantrell Awardfor excellence in undergraduate teachingin 1971, is master of the Social SciencesCollegiate Division and associate dean ofboth the Social Sciences Division and theCollege.In announcing Levine's appointment,President Hanna H. Gray said:"Jonathan Smith has set very highstandards during his five years as dean.His leadership has been extraordinary; ithas been a time of great accomplishment."Donald Levine's appointment is afurther affirmation of the strength of theCollege at Chicago, its close linkage withthe Divisions, and the significant participation of the faculty in governance ofthis University.""It's a great time to be trying to dosome substantial things in the College,"said Levine. "We've reached a point, Ithink, where there's a widely held perception throughout the University that theCollege will occupy a more central placethan perhaps it ever has."I'm very pleased by the widespreadaffirmation of that future role for the College by people in the central administration and all the faculty members I'vetalked to this past year."The College is where all the diverseinterests around the University come together. That's what makes it an excitingplace."Levine has helped create several vehicles for communication within the College — "what used to be called dialogue,"he said.He organized the College Forum,started a College faculty newsletter eightyears ago, and proposed the formationof the present College CurriculumCommittee.Levine's scholarly work has focusedon Ethiopia (where he conducted fieldresearch and taught for three years in thelate 1950s) and on sociological theory. Hehas published two books and numerousarticles on Ethiopian culture and societyand two books on Georg Simmel, aGerman sociologist.Levine is married to the former RuthWeinstein, AM'66 (SSA).D'ANGELO GIVESMILLION TO LAW SCHOOLDino D'Angelo, AB'42, JD'44, hasmade a gift of $1 million to the Universityof Chicago Law School.D'Angelo is a senior partner and ofcounsel in the firm of Friedman & Koven,in Chicago."The University of Chicago was avibrant, vital experience for me as ayoung man," D'Angelo said. "We all owesomething to the past, and my associations with professors and others therewere a lasting part of what I am and whatI do."D'Angelo is a collector of Roman artifacts and modern art, and has a specialinterest in sculpture. In 1969 he gave theLaw School a work by the sculptorKenneth Armitage, called "Diarchy." Thepiece has been placed west of the reflecting pool which the Law School overlooks.Gerhard Casper, dean of the LawSchool, said D'Angelo's gift will be usedto expand the facilities of the Law Library.FOUR NAMEDQUANTRELL WINNERSThe winners of this year's LlewellynJohn and Harriet Manchester QuantrellAward for Excellence in UndergraduateTeaching are: Robert Fefferman, associateprofessor in the Department of Mathematics and the College; Edward D.Garber, professor in the Department ofBiology, the College, and the Committeeon the Conceptual Foundations of Science; Janel M. Mueller, professor in theDepartment of English Language and Literature, the College, and the Committeesin the General Studies in the Humanitiesand Art and Design; and Robert J.Richards, PhD'78, assistant professor in theDepartments of History and BehavioralSciences, the College, and the Committeeon the Conceptual Foundations of Science.The Quantrell awards are given eachyear in recognition of outstanding instruction in the College. They are believed tobe the nation's oldest prizes for collegeteaching. They were established in 1938 by the late Ernest E. Quantrell, X'05, atrustee from 1929 to 1962. They are namedin honor of his parents.The awards carry a stipend of $2,500each.Fefferman teaches courses rangingfrom the elementary to the most advancedmathematics and said that he does notprefer teaching one level to any other."I think we take undergraduate mathteaching more seriously here than at anyother university I know of," he said."That's largely a result of the influence of several senior faculty, especiallyHerman Meyer, Alfred Putnam, and IzaakWirszup. They take great pains to see thatpeople are taught elementary courses atthe level best suited to them."We even have Distinguished ServiceProfessors who teach elementary calculus, although they don't have to. These peopleare all great teachers, and they help to setthe tone in the department for youngerfaculty."Fefferman's research interest is Fourieranalysis, a means of studying complicatedfunctions by describing them in terms ofmuch simpler functions, like sine andcosine. Fefferman studies the applicabilityof Fourier analysis to particular problems,especially problems involving several independent variables. He said that theseproblems are much harder to analyze thanthose depending on just one variable.Garber, who has been on the facultyfor twenty-nine years, works every yearwith four or five undergraduate biologymajors on their honors projects."They ususally seek me out after taking one of my classes— Common Core ge-4 UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MACAZINE/Fall 1982Robert RichardsEdward Garbernetics or introductory genetics," he said."I enjoy teaching undergraduates.They're the only challenge. Graduate students are too focused."Garber 's research and his teachingare directly related."My research makes me a betterteacher," he said. "It's indispensable.Research forces me to keep abreast of theliterature. I redo my notes every threeyears — the point of view in genetics isalways changing."Although Garber's work is on a particular organism — anther smut — it helpshim keep current on the "whole tapestry"of genetics research, he said.In his research, Garber employs techniques geneticists use on a variety oforganisms and builds on theories that apply throughout genetics. He distinguishes genetically different smuts by color andshape, much as Mendel with peas in the19th century.With the help of undergraduate laboratory workers, Garber crossbreeds yellow and white smuts with smooth andwrinkled smuts to produce four geneticallydifferent smuts that he and colleagues canuse in further experiments."We're tracking the chromosomes,which we cannot identify, by the differentcolors," Garber said.Garber's work has practical, as wellas theoretical implications. Smuts arepathogens that attack important cerealand grass crops. Fungicide manufacturersare interested in his work because it can beapplied directly to make their productsmore effective.Janel Mueller has chosen to under take a heavy teaching load in the Humanities Common Core program."You get bright and eager first-yearstudents who have ability but lack analytical skills and need help with their writing," Mueller said."It's challenging and satisfying todeal with students on a year-long basisand watch them develop as minds and aspeople."In teaching undergraduates, she selects material she feels they can engagewith, even if it is hard work."I don't talk down to undergraduates," she explained. "I believe if you present material to any group of intelligentpeople, you should give as full and seriousa presentation as possible. What variesbetween my classes for first-year studentsand those for upperclassmen are the skillsrequired more than the content level."Mueller has done research on thedevelopment of English prose style in the15th and 16th centuries, and on ancientGreek literature."College courses are the most fun toteach simply because you can attack thegreat questions in a way that you can'tquite ever do in graduate courses," saidRobert Richards. "There, issues like freewill versus determinism, for example, or'what is a science as opposed to a religion?'tend to be taken for granted. But whenthey pop up in an undergraduate class,they are topics for vigorous debate."Richards teaches two quarters ofScience, Culture, and Society in WesternCivilization, a three-quarter sequence satisfying the College civilization requirement. He describes the course this way:"Science, Culture and Society takesan interdisciplinary approach to thedevelopment of science within culture.The considerations you must bring to bearon this study are manifold: In what kindsof societies does science grow? What arethe philosophical ideas that are related toscience and form the background for it?What is the impact of science on society?"Initially students are often unaware ofthe interaction of science with social, cultural, and political factors, Richards said."But when we look at earlier science,the influences and contending forces separate themselves out more clearly. Viewedat a distance, earlier science becomes amirror for what is happening today. Thenstudents see that science is not an isolatedactivity."Richards is writing a book, Darwin5la^iiiaii WMIBiand the Emergence of Evolutionary Theories of Mind and Behavior. The evolutionof behavior, intelligence, and morality, hesaid, were questions of great importanceto Darwin and evolutionists such asWilliam James and Herbert Spencer.A DIALECTICAL APPROACHThe Grey City Journal, the studentarts and literature publication and sisterpublication of the Maroon, responded tothe Spring 1982 issue of the Magazinewith a quintessential display of Chicago-style dialectic. No sooner was the specialfour-color issue on "The Changing Campus" in circulation, than the GC] cameout with its own selection of campus highlights: a handsomely designed, two-page(but, alas, black and white) spread entitled"The Ten Most Repulsive Sites AroundCampus.""Not that we disagree [with theMagazine's selections]," commented theeditors; "it's just in the interests of objective journalism that we present this littlephoto-essay, focusing on those often seen,seldom commented upon, and never improved portions of our campus landscapewhich makes us . . . er . . . sick."Among the eyesores compiled by theGC] were construction sites that neverseem to be completed, campus coffeeshops that refuse to stay clean despite thecustodial staff's best efforts, and some ofthe more recent structures whose moderndesigns are too stark for the GCJ's Gothicarchitectural tastes.HUMANITIES OPENHOUSE IN OCTOBERThe public is invited to attend thethird annual University of Chicago Humanities Open House, to be held on Saturday, October 9, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.The day's forty-five events are intended to show the breadth and depth ofhumanistic study at both the graduate andundergraduate levels.Robert E.

It has a longway to go before you think of it as that."But surely one may talk of rare books."I don't really believe in rare books; it'ssome tag that's been hung around myneck," he protests. "I don't know ofanyone who ever wrote a rare book. Allpeople write to communicate . . . . "Some of the books, though, must bevery valuable. "Once a book is in here, itdoesn't have any more value. We don'texpect to sell it."You begin to understand his cherishing view of books, however ('They're allmy favorites"), when he pulls a littlevolume from a bookshelf in his office. It'sa book for children, called L'Amerique,published in 1845. He points to its "wonderful, romantic binding.""Even if you bought this book for $5,you wouldn't put it in the stacks," he says.That's true, of course. With its fadingcover picture, all pastels and goldcurlicues, the book instantly tempts theimagination to wonder what lost, naiveview of America lies inside.BOB ROSENTHAL says he has it.He spends all of his time buying books —and he gets paid for it.By Marilyn R.

And so does Rosenthal. The books inSpecial Collections are here to be used —under supervision, of course. After all,you can't go to Kroch's and buy another ifone is lost. But "They're available to anybona fide user," says Rosenthal. "We havea critical and lively audience. We want tomeet their needs head on."As Daniel Meyer, AM'75, UniversityArchives research specialist and a memberof Rosenthal's enthusiastic staff explainslater:"He's determined not to be bound bythe conventional understanding of bookcollections. He's determined to remaincritical; he doesn't want anything here tobe taken for granted. And he's very concerned with having the collection be reallyused. He sees no point in having booksaround here unless they are.""He is unique among special collections curators in this country in hisrelentless determination to construct adepartment and corpus of materials whichrelate directly to the academic merit of theUniversity," adds Michael T. Ryan, assistant curator, Department of SpecialCollections, University archivist, and lecturer in the Department of History. "Henever took that fatal step into the preciousworld of rare manuscripts. They're seen interms of their ability to cast light on thepast. We buy books to support scholarship.

Calvary and Co., as thestart of a scholarly research library for auniversity which as yet had no buildings.After seven years of legal tangles, the acquisition of what has become known asthe Berlin Collection was completed. Thecollection embraces religion, philosophy,science, travel, folklore, and other subjects, in Latin, French, German, Italianand Greek.Today, the Berlin Collection at Chicago is a representative part of a rare bookand manuscript department which in texture and breadth is a match for any other ofits size, according to Ryan. The department's range and diversity — many centuries, subjects, and languages, physical presentations from papyrus to parchment tohand-scrawled notepaper, volumes spanning the history ofprinting from its 15th centurybeginnings — are absolutely notfortuitous, stresses Rosenthal.Rather, they are the tangibleresult of eclectic minds at workover the years, spinning out inter- Hp(relationships. Take the theology ^fecollection, for example, which tlr^^Rosenthal calls "extraordinary." 6r"It relates to the whole impact oftheology," he says. "Not only the nature ofreligion and how it is manifested in performance and ritual, but its vast socialand cultural impact, also. On one side, wehave one of the most important biblicalcollections, based on the history andevolution of Bibles since the beginning of printing of our own Bible. Of course, wehave other sacred texts, also. On the otherhand, we have a large collection on thehistory of religion, myth and ritual. Thenyou get into presentation, and the subjectbecomes important in terms of arthistory . . . . "Or consider the history of Westernscience. The University recently acquiredthe John Crerar Library of 650,000volumes on science and technology (nowhoused at the Illinois Institute ofTechnology), which includes 27,000 rarebooks. The Crerar books, says Rosenthal,"fit into a long tradition in which the(University) library has attempted todocument the growth of science and thescientific attitude."*T~ !

Another room is filled withcatalogs describing the availability oforiginal manuscripts anywhere in theworld: Tibetan Manuscripts from Tun-Huang in the Indian Office Library, oroyster sellers' account books from 1871 onfile in Maryland.Fifteen thousand German novels,dating from the mid-18th to the mid-19thcenturies, all jacketed alike in Teutonictan and acquired en bloc from a lendinglibrary in Leipzig, rest comfortably in theCollections with the papers of AbrahamLincoln and Stephen A.

That's definitely not the ambient spirit at Chicago."Keeper of the past" is perhaps a titleRosenthal would accept. "We're here totake a part of the past, understanding thatwe can't have it all," he says. 'This institution has reached back from the day itopened to try and encompass a reasonable, productive part of the past. But thatraises a lot of fundamental issues: How doyou define the past in terms of books?Who has the authority to make decisions?How are the decisions affected over time?Where do you find the past7"Sometimes it's in the hands of bookcollectors, or scholars, obviously. There'sa whole trade known as the antiquarianbook trade whose function is the distribution of these historical objects. We getcatalogs like this every day," he says,pulling out a batch of about thirtybooklets at random. There's one fromFlorence, one from northern England,from Philadelphia, Los Angeles, Paris,Amsterdam. One from a man whospecializes in French books, another onGerman art."Much time is spent reviewing thesecatalogs. Much can be done sitting at thisdesk." He gestures toward the massivedesk once used by William RaineyHarper. "There's a very sophisticated, efficient network out there."^fr* ,,^Of course, he also will go anywherenecessary to make a purchase. And someacquisitions have been serendipitous. Acollection of pamphlets, for instance, waspurchased from a bookseller in Potts-town, Pennsylvania, while Rosenthal andRyan were in the East a few months ago."You make your luck," says Rosenthal."We were on our way to New York City,and decided to stop and see him. We hadknown about him for years."He bought a collection of Germanliterature while in England in 1980. Hewent in and told the bookseller he'd take"everything on that wall," says Ryan."Unlike many rare book librarians,Bob has an eye for the possible," Ryanadds. "He works very quickly, but verydeliberately. One of the greatest sights isto turn around and see that great, hulkingbulk, those great hands holding a delicatebook, and hear him say" — he drops to agruff stage whisper — " 'Hey, I've found agreat book over here.'"We don't have a collection policy orstatement. Obviously, when you havesomeone as vigorous and alive as Bob, apolicy would be a piece of paper. Hereinvents scholarship every time he goesto a bookseller. I've never seen anyone doit with as much gusto and enthusiasm."It's an enthusiasm which obviouslyhas not waned after thirty-three years,since Rosenthal first came to the University as a graduate student in 1949, afterearning a degree at the University ofIndiana."College was a big grab bag for me,"he says. "I could have graduated in any So Long Susan.Blackfriarscomic operascore. 1124;and PhoenixMagazine.February.1937.

I needed some discipline."He came to Chicago's GraduateLibrary School because, quite simply, "Ithink libraries are wonderful places. Itwas a way to get to learn an awful lot, seean awful lot."His expressed interest in workingwith the University's historical book collection, which had been in storage duringWorld War II, led to a part-time job. Thematerials, mostly in packages and boxes,were at that time in the West Tower ofHarper Library, and Rosenthal remembers being led there by Stanley Gwynn,then assistant librarian (Herman Fussierwas director at the time) and told:"Here it is."Rosenthal became curator of SpecialCollections in 1954. Now, so many yearslater, staff members agree that the department is essentially the product of hissingular vision.The exhibition program, for instance,is the most extensive in the country, according to Jeffrey Abt, exhibitions coordinator for Special Collections. The sevenor eight exhibits a year, each planned asmuch as two or three years in advance,represent a major effort to get the booksand manuscripts out of the necessarilyclosed stacks and storerooms and into thepublic domain.An exhibition on University architecture from 1892 to 1932 is currently inpreparation. It will be shown in thespring, in the gallery at the entrance to theDepartment of Special Collections (whichis open to the public). Photos of the cam pus during that time will be augmented bythe text which volunteer Jean FreidbergBlock, AM'63 (author of Hyde ParkHouses), has been hewing out ofUniversity Archives for the past year ormore. A thick catalog of photos and written history will be a permanent record ofthe event, and a volume of historicalvalue in itself.The fall 1982 exhibition is of booksfrom the personal library of Richard P.McKeon, the Charles F. Grey Distinguished Service Professor Emer- .itus in the Departments of Clas- %f^Asical Languages and Literature /£~\&and Philosophy. It will reflect his I |\JHwide-ranging scholarly interests. \ 1 iHOther faculty members have \\ ^fmade significant donations to «r"%|the Special Collections. A number \ \of Russian political pamphlets \jkfrom 1905 to 1920, for example,were gathered by a professor while he wastraveling in that country. The assemblageis almost unique in the United States, andsome of the pamphlets are no longer extant in the U.S.S.R. Another set of bookscame from a faculty member who startedas a graduate student in London toreconstruct the library of 18th-centuryeconomist Adam Smith.Rosenthal already has taken note ofthe fact that the Johnsonians, latter dayspiritual colleagues of Samuel Johnson,will be meeting in Chicago in 1984, andhas suggested working with the Englishdepartment on an appropriate exhibit.Such felicitous relationships withfaculty are not, notes Abt, something that one could take for granted of a person inRosenthal's position. As the curatorhimself puts it, "I think they're wonderfulcolleagues — even the cranky ones."They have the ability to be serious,to use books as, in effect, foils for largerdialogue and discussion. The faculty hasbeen uniformly helpful. And they all endup here."h&\ ~l ANY PEOPLE "ENDPJT |\/| UP here."

Many of the books are centuries old.Most of them are in Latin."The system, however, and the technical proficiency it entails on the part of thestaff are things which Rosenthal simplyexpects. The real interaction within thedepartment is on a much deeper level."He's not interested in the process, "says Abt. "The real work here is interpreting and understanding the material.What he considers important is what's going on right now — like getting to knowthe Crerar rare books. A lot of peoplehave gone through this department —including pages, interns, students. Hebends over backward to throw a lot ofresponsibility on his staff, and then whenthey succeed, to throw them into thelimelight. He's a tremendous teacher andleader. He feels strongly that workinghere should be an education."All of us get exasperated with him.He knows it; he wants it. He's got thecapacity to suggest ideas that are good.You can't just toss them off and do thingswilly-nilly."Rosenthal's view of the matter is that"I've always been blessed by a very goodstaff, and there's no question of the privilege I think the staff feels at working sointimately with lively, vital records. Thedepartment has been used as a trainingground."Rosenthal lives in Hyde Park, wherehe and his wife, Jane Marshall Rosenthal,AM'71, a linguist specializing in classical Aztec, often entertain members of thedepartment. His own current writing involves a long-term, "almost anthropological" investigation of the ways in whichbooks migrated to Chicago in the 19thcentury: How did people learn aboutthem, who brought them in and why,who bought them, what became of themonce the original acquisitive impetus haddisappeared?For amusement, he pursues severalcollections of his own: books published inthe year 1900 ("as good a year as any");books containing the names of his wife orany of his four grown children in theirtitles (Jane, Peter, Emily, Anne, orWillie); books whose covers contain agreat deal of gilt; books with thistles onthe cover; and books with unintentionaldouble entendres in the titles."Fortunately, I've lost all distinctionbetween work and pleasure," he says. "It'sall very comfortable."It seems not only a comfortable, buta wonderfully felicitous arrangement allaround. The University steadily enhancesits Special Collections under the guidanceof a man whom Abt calls "one of the major figures in his field in this country," andwhom Ryan calls the department's "conduit of enthusiasm and keeper of quality."Rosenthal, who consistently deflectsany compliments to himself, speaks insteadof his own sense of privilege in helping theinstitution to create these collections. Orhe may say that he came to Chicago in '49and "never knew enough to leave."But to friends he'll say exultantly, "Ihave the best job in the place." SUNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/Fall 1982By Michael Alper, AB'81 andFlorence Hammet, MAT'74 N FRANCE, MEMBERS OF THATaugust assembly of scholars, the Acade-mie Francaise, are referred to as immor-tels. The University of Chicago makes nosuch claims for the longevity of its faculty. It recognizes the achievements of itsmost eminent scholars in another way — by appointing them to named professorships.President Ernest DeWitt Burton made apoint of this distinction when he announced thecreation of the first named professorships at theUniversity in 1924. Addressing potential donors Lady Margaret Beaufortestablished the first academic "chair" at Oxfordand Cambridge in 1562.The Lady MargaretProfessorships still exist.Ans- When it's assigned to a distinguished scholarwho may also be known as a "named"professor — either way, being thus designated is one of thehighest honors to be bestowed on a faculty member.ISMartin Ryerson (1.)former chairman ofthe Board of Trustees.established the firstchair at the Universityof Chicago in 1925.First occupant wasAlbert A. Michelson,(r.) 1907 Nobel Prizewinner (Physics.)for the chairs, he emphasized, if not themortality, certainly the humanity of thescholars for whom the chairs would bereserved ."It is men that give distinction to auniversity," he said. "Buildings and booksare indispensible, but they do not make auniversity, still less do they make it eminent. Indeed, the chief essential for agreat university is that it should havegreat men."While appointment to an endowedacademic chair may not have the appealthat a guarantee of immortality has, itprovides its own considerable measure ofdistinction. To a scholar, it is one of thehighest honors he or she can receive fromthe University. To the University, adonor's gift of an endowed chair meansthat some of the best teachers and researchers can be attracted, retained, andrewarded.The word chair first took on itsacademic meaning during the MiddleAges, when it was used to describe theseat from which a professor delivered hislectures in the great medieval universities.The first chairs to be endowed wereestablished at Oxford and Cambridge in1502, by Lady Margaret Beaufort, thecountess of Richmond and mother ofHenry the Seventh. She created the LadyMargaret Professorships of Divinityat the urging of her confessor, BishopJohn Fisher, then vice-chancellor ofCambridge. She specified that the holderof the chair give a daily lecture, and thathe be re-elected every two years, in orderto prevent neglect of duty from incompetence or age.The professorship carried a stipend of"twenty marks per annum." Not only wasthis the first time a chair had been endowed, but it was also the first time professors were paid on a regular basis fortheir teaching. The sum of twenty marksis paid even today (with a contemporary supplement) to the Lady MargaretProfessors at Oxford and Cambridge.Lady Margaret's professorships havebeen continuously occupied since 1502,and the incumbents have been some of themost famous scholars and theologians inEngland. Bishop John Fisher was, not unexpectedly, the first Lady Margaret Professor at Cambridge. Desiderius Erasmuswas the fourth.Henry the Eighth established the nextendowed chairs, in 1540, also at Oxfordand Cambridge. These chairs, in Divinity,Hebrew, Greek, Civil Law, and Physic(Medicine), were called the RegiusProfessorships. King Henry provided notonly a regular salary to the incumbents,but coats-of-arms as well; the currentholders are still entitled to them.Throughout history, named professorships have had stellar pedigrees. AtCambridge, in 1664, Sir Isaac Barrow, oneof the period's most brilliant mathematicians, was named to the LucasianProfessorship of Mathematics. In 1669, heresigned the professorship, to give it to apupil he judged more worthy of thehonor: Sir Isaac Newton. Newton gavehis famous "Optical Lectures" and the firstdraft of the first ten sections of the"Principia Mathematica" as LucasianLectures. Edward Waring was the sixthoccupant of the chair, and author of"Waring's Problem," a mathematical conundrum which teased mathematicians fortwo hundred years until Leonard E.Dickson, the Eliakim Hastings MooreDistinguished Service Professor at theUniversity of Chicago from 1927 to 1939,solved it.The first endowed chair at anAmerican university was established in1721 by Thomas Hollis at Harvard.William Rainey Harper, the University's first president, was a named professorat Yale before he came to Chicago,holding the Woolsey Professorship of Biblical Literature (named after TheodoreWoolsey, a former president of Yale).Harper did not bring the idea ofnamed professorships with him toChicago, however. He may have deemedit a superfluous honor, since he had offered his department heads the thenunheard-of salary of $7000 to teach at thenew University — ample evidence, if anyone needed it, of Harper's high regard forthe faculty he had assembled.In 1925, President Burton announcedthe start of a major DevelopmentCampaign, "something in the nature of aCall to Arms,' " he said. One of thecenterpieces of the campaign was hisproposal for the establishment ofDistinguished Service Professorships, tohelp the University "in drawing to itself anumber of such men who not only makethe reputation of a university, but alsomake its atmosphere, lift it above mediocrity, awaken ambition, furnish inspirationand impulse to high achievement." Withall that, he expected them to be mortalas well.In addition to the prestige of receiving the highest honor the University couldconfer, appointees to a DistinguishedService Professorship were also to beawarded "the special salary of $10,000,"to be derived from the interest income onendowments of $200,000. (At that time,maximum salaries stood at $8000, or anincrease of only fourteen percent onHarper's lavish offer of 1891.)President Burton died before the firstchair was established; but by the Juneconvocation of 1925, it was announcedthat a Distinguished Service Professorshiphad been endowed by Martin Ryerson,director of the Corn Exchange NationalBank, the Northern Trust Co., the ElginNational Watch Co., and former chairman of the University's board of trustees.Albert A. Michelson, winner of the 1907Nobel Prize in physics, and a member ofthe University's faculty since its opening,was named the first incumbent. With suchan illustrious appointment, the Universityhad set a precedent that would be both achallenge and an honor to maintain.In 1927, the board of trustees setanother precedent, when they authorizedthe creation of the Eliakim HastingsMoore Distinguished Service Professorship, "in recognition of the long and distinguished service of Professor Moore ofthe Department of Mathematics"; LeonardE. Dickson was the first appointee. Sincethen, the University has memorialized anumber of its most prominent facultymembers by naming professorships intheir honor.16 UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/Fall 1982There are presently two kinds ofendowed named professorships at theUniversity of Chicago. Named Professorships are filled by a succession of scholarsin a particular branch of learning. Thefield is chosen by the donor, or suggested by the University, if the donorhas no preference. Distinguished ServiceProfessorships are filled by a succession ofthe ablest scholars in the University,without regard to the discipline in whicheach specializes.(In addition, the University has setup a limited number of UniversityProfessorships, which are reserved for thepurpose of attracting top scholars ofdistinction not now at the University ofChicago.)Donors choose the name the professorship will bear, in perpetuity. Theymay name it for themselves, for relativesthey wish to honor, or for former facultyor administrators.It is rare for an actual piece of furniture to accompany a named professorship these days. But the distinction ofbeing appointed to one is as great as it wasin Lady Margaret's time. For one thing,there aren't very many of them. In afaculty of about 1,020 at the University,there are only eighty-five named professors, and fifty-three Distinguished ServiceProfessors. This is not surprising, since itcurrently requires a minimum of $1 million to fund a named professorship, andfrom $1.2 to $1.5 million is needed for aDistinguished Service Professorship.These funds are pooled with theUniversity's other endowment assets forinvestment purposes. A portion of the income on these investments (usually aboutfive percent) is set aside to pay the professor's salary and sometimes his or heracademic expenses. The remainder of theincome is then returned to the investmentprincipal, insuring the continued growthof the endowment fund.Filling a named chair is no casual affair. "We consider the filling of all tenuredfaculty positions at the University to be anundertaking of major importance," saidD. Gale Johnson, the current EliakimHastings Moore Distinguished ServiceProfessor, chairman of the Department ofEconomics, and former provost, in a letterto an anxious donor. "Each effort involvesan extensive search process."In the case of a named chair, webelieve that even greater care should betaken, especially in filling such a chair forthe first time," he added. "The first occupant of a named chair serves as a standardthat can influence decisions for manydecades into the future." Like the endowed chairs at Oxfordand Cambridge, named professorships atthe University of Chicago are noteworthyfor their impeccable lineage. The CharlesH. Swift Distinguished Service Professorship, established in 1929, was first held byJames Henry Breasted, founder of theOriental Institute and pioneer in the fieldof Egyptology. Two Nobel laureates succeeded him: Arthur Holly Compton andEnrico Fermi. The current holder is renowned educational researcher BenjaminS. Bloom, PhD'43.The existence of named chairs tendsto promote a sense of continuity betweengenerations of scholars, a continuity thatcan be strikingly appropriate at times. Atthe Scopes "Monkey" Trial of 1925, oneof the expert witnesses for the defensewas Shailer Mathews, then dean of theDivinity School. (John T. Scopes, theTennessee schoolteacher whose effortsto teach evolution prompted the trial,studied geology at the University duringthe 1920s.) Dean Mathews defended theteaching of evolution, arguing that, "It isonly those who are ignorant, both of theorigin and nature of the Bible and of thefacts in our universe, who are terrified lestscience make them lose their faith."More than half a century later,another member of the Divinity Schoolfaculty, Langdon Gilkey, was called uponto make a similar argument. Gilkeytestified at the highly publicized trialearlier this year, in which a federal judgeruled that the Arkansas law requiring theteaching of "creationism" as science wasunconstitutional. Gilkey 's scholarly expertise in drawing the distinction betweenscientific and religious inquiry was citedas one of the key pieces of testimony inthe trial. Can it be only poetic justice thatLangdon Gilkey is the Shailer MathewsProfessor in the Divinity School?Donors do not choose the scholarwho will occupy their chair. A committee, made up of members of a department andits dean, can nominate a candidate; or amember of the University communitymay offer a special nomination. Final approval of the choice rests with the provostand the president of the University, whorecommend the nominee to the board oftrustees for appointment.When a professor dies or retires, hisor her chair is filled soon after it isvacated. If chairs go unfilled for anylength of time, it is usually because thechair is in a specialty which is difficult tofill, or because there is simply no one sufficiently accomplished to occupy it.The University is uncompromising,and patient, in making its choice, for anamed professorship confers an honor onits recipient not only at Chicago, butinternationally.It takes a great deal of money to endow a professorship. Who makes theseEliakim HastingsMoore (1.) was thefirst faculty memberto have a professorship named for him.First holder of thechair was Leonard E.Dickson (r.)munificent gifts, and why?Many donors are among Chicago'sleading citizens, with long and valuedrecords of service to the University. Theyhave included Martin A. Ryerson,Chicago banker and philanthropist andfirst chairman of the board of trustees;Harold H. Swift, PhB'07, vice-presidentand director of Swift & Co., first alumnimember of the board of trustees and itschairman for twenty-seven years; ThomasE. Donnelley, president of R.R. Donnelley& Sons, the famous printing company;Charles L. Hutchinson, banker, presidentof the Chicago Board of Trade and of theArt Institute of Chicago; industrialistJoseph Regenstein, chairman and president of Arvey Corporation and VelsicolChemical Corporation (RegensteinLibrary is named for him); Marshall FieldIV, of the famous Chicago mercantile andnewspaper family; Maurice Goldblatt,member of another leading Chicago merchant family; and others.One of the most generous gifts theUniversity ever received came from aquite unexpected quarter. Louis Block wasa Joliet, Illinois, industrialist who had hadvirtually no contact with the Universityduring his lifetime. During the early1950s, there appeared in the press reportsof a growing shortage of scientists, andBlock, worried about the situation,sought to remedy it.Block investigated a number of institutions which he thought might qualifyfor a proposed grant in the physical andbiological sciences. He concluded that theUniversity of Chicago was a place whereindependent minds were able to exploreuncharted areas and that it came "closestto meeting the ideals that I would like tosee preserved."Block left the University $17 millionto teach and train scientists. The bequest,second largest in the University's history,established the Louis Block Fund for BasicResearch and Advanced Study.In 1968 it was decided to make thisfinancial support "visible" by establishinga number of Louis Block Professorships.Currently there are ten such chairs, five inthe biological sciences and five in thephysical sciences.One donor began his relationshipwith the University in a particularlyadversarial manner. In April, 1935, theUniversity made national headlines whenCharles R. Walgreen, founder ofWalgreen's Drug Stores, withdrew hisniece from the University, charging thatshe was being indoctrinated by "subversive communistic teachings and ideas advocating the violent overthrow of theestablished form of government." In theState Senate investigations which ensued,members of the University turned theoriginal negative publicity around, to theUniversity's advantage, by providingsome of the most eloquent defenses ofacademic freedom on record. So persuasive was the University's defense, in fact,that Walgreen himself was impressed;within two years he had endowed theCharles R. Walgreen Foundation for theStudy of American Institutions.The Walgreen Foundation began as afund for sponsoring a remarkable series oflectures, on a broad range of subjects,with speakers ranging from poet CarlSandburg to philosopher Hannah Arendt.Later, the University set aside part of thefunds to establish the Charles R. WalgreenProfessorship of American Institutions.The Walgreen chair currently is heldby Robert W. Fogel in the GraduateSchool of Business. Fogel, who taught atthe University from 1963 to 1975, held the Harold Hitchings Burbank Professorshipof political economy and history atHarvard University prior to his appointment to the Walgreen chair last year. Heis considered a pioneer in the new fieldof quantitative economic history knownas cliometrics, which combines complexcomputer analysis with historical interpretation. (Clio is the Greek muse ofhistory.) His scholarly versatility is perhaps best demonstrated by the fact thathe is the first historian elected to theNational Academy of Science.Many donors of endowed chairs arealumni, and some are former Universityfaculty — and a few are both. Theodore O.Yntema, AM'25, PhD'29, former vice-president of finance for the Ford MotorCompany, had served on the faculty of she added, "because the money receivedfrom its sale will be used to help a youngdoctor in the future."Two of the newest chairs at theUniversity are named in honor of alumni-trustees. When David Rockefeller,PhD'40, life trustee of the University,retired as chairman of the board of NewYork's Chase Manhattan Bank last year,Chase Manhattan endowed a chair in international economics in his honor. TheRockefeller chair has not yet been filled.The Atlantic Richfield Foundationrecently endowed a Distinguished ServiceProfessorship in honor of Robert O.Anderson, AB'39, chairman of theAtlantic Richfield Company, and of theAspen Institute for Humanistic Studies.The first appointment to the AndersonNamed professorshipsat the University arenoteworthy of theirimpeccable lineage.The Charles H. SwiftDistinguished ServiceProfessorship hasbeen held by (1. to r.)]ames H. Breasted,the Graduate School of Business from1923 to 1949. He established the TheodoreO. Yntema Professorship in the businessschool in 1973. The appointee is one of theyoungest scholars ever to receive a namedprofessorship: Eugene F. Fama, PhD'64,who was thirty-three at the time. LikeYntema, he had been asked to teach in theGraduate School of Business while still astudent; Fama had been promoted to fullprofessor at the age of twenty -nine.Fama's field is finance.Alumna Catherine Lindsay Dobson,MD'30, a member of the associate clinicalstaff at Chicago Lying-in Hospital, soldher violin to a Russian concert violinist tostart a fund for a named assistant professorship in the Department of Obstetricsand Gynecology in the Pritzker School ofMedicine. The violin was one of the lastmade by the great Stradivarius."You just can't imagine how beautifulthat instrument was," said Dobson. "Thelast time that Jack Benny was in Chicago,my violin instructor introduced us andJack played on my Stradivarius. He said itwas much better than his own."I'm really not sorry that I sold it," chair is a distinguished humanist in hisown right: Jonathan Z. Smith, professorin the Department of New Testament andEarly Christian Literature, the Committeeon the Study of the Ancient World, andformer dean of the College.Sometimes whole graduating classesdonate funds to endow a chair, in memory of a favorite professor. Such a chair,among the oldest in the University, is theEdward Olson Professorship of Greek.Olson was a professor of Greek in theold University of Chicago, who died in afire in Minneapolis at about the time efforts were being made to raise money forthe establishment of the new University.The Class of 1886 and several of ProfessorOlson's friends decided to honor Olson byraising funds for the endowment of a professorship in Greek in the new University.In 1930, the graduating classes of1925, 1926, 1927, and 1928 gave money toestablish a Distinguished Service Professorship in honor of the recently deceased President Ernest DeWitt Burton.(John D. Rockefeller and Harold H. Swiftcontributed to the fund.) The chair hasbeen held by an outstanding series of18 UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE /Fall 1982scholars and teachers, including JamesHenry Breasted (this was his secondnamed professorship — he stepped downas the Charles H. Swift DistinguishedService Professor in order to accept theBurton chair); Edgar J. Goodspeed,DB'97, PhD'98, President Burton's successor as chairman of the Department ofNew Testament and Early ChristianLiterature; Leonard D. White, PhD'21,government adviser and authority on public administration; Robert S. Mulliken,PhD'21, who won the 1966 Nobel Prizefor chemistry; and the current incumbent,William H. Kruskal, noted statistician anddean of the Division of Social Sciences.Reasons for funding a chair are asvaried as the donors who endow them.Sometimes a gift reflects the personal con- the College in 1952.) The two holders ofthe chair have made their donors proud:Paul Johannes Tillich, from 1962 to 1965,Protestant theologian and author ofSystematic Theology: and the currentholder, internationally acclaimed Frenchphilosopher Paul Ricouer, who is a professor in the Divinity School, the Department of Philosophy, and the Committeeon Social Thought.In 1977, Norman and Edna Freehlingestablished a professorship in their nameat the University. The Freehlings talkedrecently about their reasons for endowinga chair.Norman Freehling, X'29, is thefounder of his own brokerage firm inChicago, Freehling & Co., and is still anactive partner at age seventy-eight. Ednacerns and beliefs of the donor.In 1962, the directors of a national investment banking firm and their familiesdonated money for a chair for decidedlyspiritual reasons. Chester W. Laing,PhB'32, then president of John Nuveen &Co., who made the gift, said:"In our present-day world, all eyesare turned to the feat of our astronauts,the Russian cosmonauts, and the race tothe moon. It is, however, the opinion ofthis company that the ultimate victorywill not necessarily go to that societywhich first orbits a man 1000 timesaround the earth or is the first to have aman set foot upon the moon and return totell about his trip. The most importantstruggle is for the possession of men'shearts, minds, and souls. We believe thattheology plays the leading role in thiscompetition. That is why we have chosento serve mankind by endowing the JohnNuveen Professorship." (Nuveen, a Dutchimmigrant who established the firm inChicago in 1898, studied at the Universityin 1892; his son, John Nuveen, Jr.,PhB'19, was a University trustee; andhis son, John S. Nuveen, graduated from founder of the Oriental Institute; twoNobel laureates,Arthur H. Comptonand Enrico Fermi;and (currently)Benjamin S. Bloom,distinguished educational researcher.Wilhartz Freehling, PhB'29, grew up inHyde Park, and is a former director of theChicago Urban League. Not surprisingly,part of their reason for endowing a chairwas a desire to contribute to the welfare ofthe community."We had always been involved in thecommunity," said Mr. Freehling, "andthought the most desirable place where wecould do something for the communitywould be the University of Chicago."After consulting with John T.Wilson, then president of the University,they agreed that a chair in the socialsciences would accord well with theirinterests.They were especially pleased by thefirst appointment to the chair: Barry D.Karl, AM'51, whose study of the historyof philanthropy and other community-related activities made him an ideal candidate for the Freehling Professorship inHistory. They have since developed whatMrs. Freehling calls "a marvelously warmand friendly relationship" with Karl.Sometimes endowing a chair has amore far-reaching effect than that of simply honoring an eminent professor. "The appointment of Philip Kurlandas the William R. Kenan, Jr., Professorin the College [in 1973] was an eventof unusual importance in our Collegiatelife," said Charles R. Wegener, AB'42,PhD'50, the Howard L. Willett Professorin the College and chairman of the Committee on Ideas and Methods, in a reportto the donors, the William R. Kenan, Jr.,Charitable Trust. (William R. Kenan, Jr.,was a noted chemist and industrialist.)"While such College chairs arewithout restriction of function and partake of the nature of University professorships, Mr. Kurland's initial and primaryresponsibility was the new program inPolitics, Economics, Rhetoric, and Law[PERL], which he helped to plan andwhich was launched simultaneously withhis appointment to the Kenan chair."The PERL program, which hasgained a reputation as one of the most rigorous in the College, requires the writingof two papers: a "junior" or "qualifyingpaper," and a "senior" paper. One studentin the program, Greg Wrobel, AB'75,JD'78, MBA'79, wrote an outstandingjunior paper entitled "Political andEconomical Factors in the Development ofAntitrust Law." Wrobel worked with foureminent scholars, all named professors,in writing the paper: Barry Karl, theFreehling Professor of History, andRichard A. Posner, the Lee and BrenaFreeman Professor in the Law School,were his advisors on the paper; GeorgeStigler, PhD'38, the Walgreen Distinguished Service Professor (now Emeritus)in the Department of Economics and theGraduate School of Business, and WayneBooth, the Pullman Distinguished ServiceProfessor of English, also advised Wrobel.Wrobel is only one of the numerousstudents over the years who have clearlyappreciated the value of named professorships at the University. Now an associatewith the Chicago law firm of Chadwell,Kayser, Riggles, McGee, Hastings, Ltd.,Wrobel himself helps advise the PERLprogram.His experience embodies the overallpurpose of establishing endowed chairs atthe University. Scholars are the University's greatest resource; endowed chairsprovide a place of repose, as it were, forsome of the best in the world.Such men and women attract promising, motivated students to the University.Those students, who benefit directly fromthe presence of these scholars, are a partof the legacy of endowed chairs at theUniversity, just as are the professors whohold them. That kind of legacy may be allthe immortality anyone could ask for. S1Q4Ulio'sUlwofNamedProfessorsNamed ProfessorsArthur W.H.

Gray III,AB'48, MBA'50, made a generous donation for renovation of the Henry Crown Field House,he was offered the opportunity to havehis gift identified. Gray chose to honorhis friend and former basketball coach,Joseph M. Stampf, AB'41.Consequently, on a bitter cold dayin January, a stalwart group of Stampf'sfriends and family members gathered tohonor him for his thirty-five years ofservice to the Uniersity. Over lunch atthe Quadrangle Club, they exchangedhappy reminiscences. Later they repaired to the Crown Field House towatch the Maroons play basketballagainst Monmouth College.In the late afternoon there was aceremony, in which the new basketballcourt at Crown Field House was officially named the Joseph V. StampfVarsity Basketball Court. A plaque washung as testimony to the honor.Gray, now a vice-president at theHarris Trust and Savings Bank inChicago, played varsity basketball in1944-45. He was awarded the AmosAlonzo Stagg Medal in 1950, and aPublic Service Citation (from theAlumni Association) in 1942. Currentlyhe is a member of the Visiting Committee on Student Programs andFacilities, and of the Citizens Board.Gray feels that Stampf's career,both as an athlete and coach, reflectedthe finest traditions of the University.In 1941, as a senior, Stampf led theBig Ten in scoring with a 13.8 point average per game, and set a record for themost successful free throws in one season. He was named to several AI1-American basketball teams.After coaching basketball at University High School and serving as assistant coach for the University varsityteam, Stampf was named head basketball coach in 1957. His teams compiled a205-116 record before illness forced hisearly retirement in 1976.Stampf's teams' best years were1959-60 (18-4), 1960-61 (19-4 and theNCAA midwest college championship),and 1971-72, when Chicago won 16games, lost only four, qualified for thenational playoffs and led the NCAACollege Division in defense. His teamsfinished among the top five in the nation in defense no fewer than 11 times.Among those who played underStampf were Ail-Americans Joel Ze-mans, AB'63, MBA'65, Eugene (Gene)P. Ericksen, SB' 63, and the University's HonoringifTHEGREATESTCOLLEGEBASKETBALLCOACHPatricia Evans all-time leading scorer, Gerry Clark,AB'74, MBA'76.In a column in the Chicago Sim-Times sportswriter Bill Gleason calledStampf "the greatest college basketballcoach of my experience." "Stampf wonwithout recruits," wrote Gleason."Stampf won with kids who had notbeen good enough to make a highschool team."Gleason was correct in callingStampf a great college basketball coach,say Stampf's former students, butwrong in his assumption about thequality of the players. "In 1960-61 wehad eight players on the team who ledtheir high schools in scoring. That's talent," commented John Davey, AB'61,JD'62, now a vice-president at the Continental Illinois National Bank & TrustCompany, Chicago.Nevertheless, the reputation ofStampf's teams was built around defense and high-percentage shooting. Ineighteen years under Stampf, Chicagofinished among the top five colleges inthe NCAA in defense eleven times."Stampf was clever. He emphasized defense way before other coachesrealized its advantages," said Davey,who won the Amos Alonzo StaggAward for basketball in 1961. "Becauseof his intelligent approach, we won a lotof games over stronger teams." In1960-61 this combination of strategyand talent led to an NCAA MidwestCollegiate title.Stampf, himself, speaking at anearlier occasion, expressed himselfthus:"Intercollegiate basketball, as apart of the life of the University, contributes to that life by offering an opportunity for creative expression in theart form called basketball ... It provides the student with a real experiencewith the concept and ethic of free competition. It provides him with a laboratory to test the concepts of individualgrowth and group relationships hestudies in the biological and social sciences and the humanities."Stampf also pointed out the importance of winning games withoutoveremphasizing victory."That's the object of the game — tooutscore your opponent even if by onlyone point. If the reason for the existenceof the university is to be a model of excellence, then this striving must be reflected in every facet of university life,including athletics."

Gray and charged with the taskof reviewing the state of graduate education in the arts and sciences.In nearly two years of deliberations,the Commission considered a wide rangeof issues, including graduate recruitment,the organization and length of degree programs, financial aid, career planning, andthe purpose of graduate education. It conducted surveys among applicants to determine why some came to the Universityand others rejected it; and among enrolledstudents concerning their expectations atmatriculation and how these had beenmet. It also conducted a brief review ofthe four Graduate Divisions.In its 109-page report, the Commission listed thirty-five specific recommendations. (See box on Page 28.) Chiefamong these are:• That the University should helpPh.D. students prepare for non-academicas well as academic careers.• That the University establish aResearch Institute (or Institutes) in theHumanities and Social Sciences. One ofthe major purposes of the Institute would be to provide students with intellectualand emotional support from faculty andcolleagues during the long period in whichthey work on dissertations.• That the course requirements forPh.D.'s be cut, to shorten the length oftime required to earn a Ph.D.• That the University revise its financial aid policies in ways that would bemost helpful to students while working ona Ph.D.• That the University consider establishment of a computer science department.• That the University make greaterefforts to help graduate students whoplan to enter academia to gain teachingexperience.The Commission recommended thatthe University institute a regular reviewprocedure providing for the evaluation ofeach department (or group of departments), at least every ten years, by avisiting committee composed equally ofdistinguished scholars from outside theUniversity and members of the faculty.Since visits of this kind have been infrequent in the recent past, the Commissionrecommended that they be accomplished,to begin with, according to an acceleratedcycle (three to five years).President Hanna H. Gray, responding to the Commission's report, said:"I am enormously grateful to themembers of the Commission for thethoughtful and comprehensive reportwhich they are now presenting. The Commission has fulfilled its charge with distinction, rigor, and imagination. Its workhas provided an exhaustive overview ofgraduate education at this Universityagainst the background of national trendsand in context of our own traditions,strengths, and opportunities."At Gray's request the deans of theDivisions have been holding meetingswith faculty to discuss the report and toprepare responses to it. In the fall, saidGray, there will be "one or two largerpublic forums devoted to the essentialrecommendations of the Commission andthe responses which have emerged."("Graduate Education" will be thetheme at several alumni meetings duringthe coming year. Beverly J. Splane, AB'67, MBA'69, president of the AlumniAssociation, said: "We look forward tohearing in detail about the Baker Commission's report, and we hope that alumniwill join in the discussion.")Gray cited several steps she has takenin response to the Commission's recommendations. By the beginning of the autumn quarter she will have a plan for aproposal to establish ad hoc visitingcommittees to review departments andcommittees.Among other steps, she has asked theprovost to appoint a committee to consider the question of a program in computerscience; and she has asked the appropriateofficers of the University to consider andexplore alternatives to existing loan arrangements (for graduate students) againstthe possibility of current federal loan programs being modified in the future.In its report, in a chapter entitled"Predicting the Future, Projecting the Past,"the Commission opened with the observation that if "Hell is truth seen too late," itmight also be true that "Hell is half-truthseen too soon." The Commission urgedthe University to view the national predictions of cataclysmic enrollment declineswith skepticism, and to apply any national data to its own situation with extremecaution.The number of degree enrollments inthe four graduate Divisions at the University was 37 percent lower in 1981-82 thanin the peak year of 1968-69. (Not all divisions shared equally in the decline: theBiological Sciences Division remainedfairly constant.)Nationally, and at Chicago, the employment of those who did earn a Ph.D.shifted toward non-academic jobs. In1970-71, 82 percent of Chicago Ph.D.swent on to careers in teaching and research at colleges and universities. By1979-80, that number had fallen to 63 percent. Not surprisingly, the number ofPh.D.s entering non-academic careers hadincreased from about 10 percent in1970-71 to about 25 percent at the end ofthe decade. Business, government, andnon-profit institutions provided a largenumber of these non-academic positions.(The change for the humanities and social25sciences graduates was most severe: humanities graduates going into teaching fellfrom 93 percent in 1970-71 to 69 percentin 1979-80, for example.)The Commission found projectionsfor undergraduate — and by direct implication graduate — enrollments gloomy.The decline in the annual birth rate sincethe early 1960s yields the prediction thatthe traditional college age population willshrink by about 23 percent in the next twodecades.That situation alone would lower thedemand for college teachers, but the situation looks worse when the effect of theage seventy retirement law, and the "overproduction" of Ph.D.'s in the booming1960s is taken into account. In 1978, 73percent of all faculty members were underfifty and 60 percent were fifty-five orover, and only seven percent were sixty orover. As a result of this age distributionthere will be relatively few faculty retirements in the next two decades.However, the Commission cautionedthat there are pitfalls in predicting thefuture based on declining birth rates as thecentral variable, because such predictionsfail to incorporate more influential factorssuch as unanticipated changes in economic and social conditions and public policy.The Commission feels that national trendsdo not have a direct effect on the bestprivate institutions such as Chicago; theacademic job market will undoubtedlycontract in the years ahead, but it is alsolikely that the University's share of themarket will grow.The Commission concludes that "itwould be imprudent to disregard the demographic data entirely, but equally unwise to think of them as issuing from aniron law of decline, or depriving the University of the opportunity to shape itsown course."The Commission said it believes it ispossible that the overall decline in Ph.D.enrollments at the University may have"bottomed out" or at least may be arrestedif its recommendations are adopted.While the Commission felt that theshrinking academic job market is a given,it found some hope in the capacity of theUniversity's recent Ph.D.'s to find satisfying non-academic employment. Many ofits recommendations suggest how thePh.D. programs might adapt to this newreality.The Commission suggested that thefaculty undertake a re-examination of itsgoals concerning graduate education."Since its creation, the distinctivequalities of the University of Chicago have rested substantially upon the specialcharacter of its commitment to graduateeducation, and the excellence it has beenable to sustain as a result of the conduct ofthis activity," said the Commission."Given the prevailing sense of crisis ingraduate education, this Commission believes that it is imperative that the facultyevaluate its commitment to this traditional responsibility, consider the principles and assumptions on which it rests,and assess the means by which it is beingpursued ... As faculty members we mustask ourselves — and be willing to explainto others — what is it we wish to achieveand why. What is the idea of graduateeducation at this University?"The fundamental purpose of graduate education, said the Commission, "is todevelop analytical independence and conceptual self-consciousness; to stimulatecreative imagination and critical abilities;to inculcate habits of disciplined thinkingand systematic investigation; in short, toprepare individuals to ask questions andto formulate problems across a broad rangeof human activities . . . Thus it is our claimfor graduate education that it constitutes atrue education, not simply an advancedform of professional training."And, said the Commission:"We should maintain the highest intellectual standards in any of the graduateprograms we offer: excellence will continue to be the rarest commodity in theacademic market place."The Commission suggested that thedeans of the Divisions and the professional schools mutually explore the possibilityof establishing joint graduate/professionalschool programs, aimed at graduatestudents who were considering enteringnon-academic fields."There are many areas of law andbusiness in which advanced training inone or another of the disciplines in thesocial sciences, the humanities, and eventhe natural sciences, would be of particular value to the future professional — tosay nothing of the more general attractionthe opportunity to continue their liberaleducation might have to students now enrolling in professional schools. Conversely, there are many traditional areasof the humanities and social scienceswhich would offer a firmer basis for non-academic careers if they were combinedwith elements of a professional schooltraining. A doctoral program in law andsocial policy, for example, might combinea legal education with training in one ormore social-scientific disciplines. A doctoral program in international studies might combine aspects of the study ofEuropean (or Asian) languages, history,and culture with training in internationalfinance or international law. A doctoralprogram in science and social policy mightcombine law and/or business trainingwith study fields in the arts and sciencesrelating to issues of environmental policy,health care delivery, patent law, and technological innovation."To help graduates compete in the jobmarket the Commission recommendedthat the University try to provide studentswith more opportunities for teaching experience. At Chicago, the Commissionpointed out, there has always been a tradition "that emphasizes the importance ofthe opportunities we offer undergraduatesto study with members of a distinguishedfaculty." Nonetheless, continued thereport, "As faculty members, we aretherefore in a position to relate elementsof our graduate and undergraduateteaching activities in ways that couldenhance the intellectual liveliness andquality of both. Thus we should not askhow graduate student teachers mightreplace faculty members in the classroom,but how they might participate in ourteaching efforts in ways that would improve the overall quality of our undergraduate education."If the University is to pursue its characteristic course of running against conventional wisdom and the prevailing fashionof the times, the Commission said itbelieves that some sharp changes in present practices will be required.The University needs to be more vigorous in its recruitment of the best students, said the Commission, and it mustreduce the attrition rate in the graduateDivisions. Meeting these goals will requiremore information, such as: Why do students come to Chicago? Why do theydecide to go elsewhere? Once they arehere, what expectations are met, andwhere does the University fall short? Tofind answers to these questions the Commission surveyed prospective studentswho declined admission to the University,students who accepted admission, and asample of all graduate students registeredin the winter of 1981.There are, of course, differences inresults among the Divisions. But the similarities were stronger than the differences.The factors which most influence thedecision to apply to the University areacademic reputation in a particular fieldof interest, the University's overall reputation, and the encouragement of formerteachers (in that order of importance).it UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO MAGAZINE/Fall 1982During the admissions process, not surprisingly, the Biological Sciences Division, which was rated highly in terms ofthe quality of its written material and constant personal contacts, experienced ahigh yield. Among all divisions, the yieldwas higher among those students whovisited the University — an interesting parallel with an earlier study of the undergraduate admissions process.The students who accepted admissionto the University were not notably different in terms of nationality, sex, orethnicity, than those who declined. Butthose who accepted were slightly olderthan those who declined and were morelikely to have earned a Master's degreeelsewhere. The Commission concludedthat "this attractiveness of the Universityto more advanced graduate students whoexpect to be able to pursue their academicinterest more effectively here than elsewhere is important."The quality of Chicago's graduateprograms, the quality of the faculty, thecloseness of interaction with the faculty,the opportunity for interdisciplinary studywere cited as positive factors among thosewho decided to come to the University.Neighborhood considerations — whilenot rated as important as academic quality — were most frequently cited as a negative by those who decided not to come.(Old images die hard; the neighborhoodhas changed greatly since the 1950s, whenthe city and the University, working together, conducted a vast rehabilitation ofdeteriorating real estate properties. TodayHyde Park is one of the two or three safesturban university neighborhoods in thecountry.)More crucial to negative decisions —especially in the Humanities and SocialSciences — were uncompetitive financialaid and lack of teaching internship opportunities. Fully 75 percent of those declining admission to the Humanities andSocial Sciences (compared with about 30percent in the Biological and PhysicalSciences) reported financial obstacles afactor in their decision.The survey of satisfaction among existing students yields encouraging results.In the Biological and Physical SciencesDivisions, the University met or exceededstudents' expectations regarding all five ofthe characteristics considered most important: faculty quality, research facilities,opportunities to pursue one's own research,program reputation, and opportunitiesfor faculty contact.The Humanities Division failed tomeet students' expectations in two out of the five characteristics: the opportunity topursue one's own research and facultycontact.In the Social Sciences Division, theUniversity also met or exceeded students'expectations regarding three out of fivecharacteristics they considered most important: faculty quality, opportunities todo one's own research, and program reputation. It failed to meet expectationsregarding opportunities for contact withfaculty and financial aid.The Commission suggested that theDivisions re-examine their tuition paymentspolicy, and try to make changes thatwould make it easier for graduate studentsto earn a degree without undue financialstress.It also recommended that the University continue its financial aid policy forthe Humanities and Social Sciences Divisions of guaranteeing continuation of thesupport offered to incoming students forthree years at the same level, subject tosatisfactory academic performance.The Commission also stressed theimportance of sufficient flexibility infinancial aid policy to allow for theawarding of new (or increased) fellowshipsupport to students entering with none (orwith relatively little) who achieve thestandards of superior work established forthis purpose.The Commission expressed concernover the length of time required to earn aPh.D. In the two natural sciences Divisions, the median time from matriculationto degree for students receiving the Ph.D.in 1980-81 was five-and-a-half years; inthe Social Sciences Division it was seven-and-three-quarter years; and in the Humanities it was almost eight-and-one-quarter years."Significantly, the Department of Economics, in which a system of regular, continuing workshops provides the centralinstitutional framework for advanced graduate work, also has the shortest mediantime to degree of any large department inthe Divisions of the Humanities and theSocial Sciences," noted the Commission.To help shorten the time required toearn a Ph.D. the Commission recommended that course requirements for thePh.D. be revised. The Commission suggested that the current twenty-sevencourse requirement be replaced with anequivalent residency requirement of ninequarters. Formal course work required forthe Ph.D. (including M.A. requirements)normally should not extend beyond aperiod equivalent to six quarters full-timeresidency at a normal load of three courses per quarter. At the end of thisperiod, students should be formally admitted to doctoral research on the basis ofdemonstrated achievement and clearpromise of research ability.The Commission also expressed concern that many graduate students, whileworking on their dissertations, functionwithout the support of their colleaguesand faculty, other than their individualthesis advisers."Students in the Humanities and SocialSciences Divisions are typically in continuous contact with faculty only duringtheir years of preliminary course work,or, at best, up to the point of formalacceptance to candidacy," said the Commission. "From that point on, aside fromirregular discussions with their dissertation readers, they are all too literally ontheir own.' Instead of being drawn intothe current intellectual debate in theirfields . . . they often become prisoners oftheir own dissertations . . . The secondpart of their career, which should be themost creative and exciting part, can easilybecome a lonely and unsupported chore."To deal with all of these problems theCommission recommended that the University consider setting up a Research Institute (or Institutes) in the Humanitiesand Social Sciences."The principal function of theResearch Institute structure would be tocreate and sustain seminars and workshops for advanced research in the humanities and social sciences, therebyestablishing a clearer institutional definition of — and a more supportive and stimulating context for — the research stage ofgraduate work in the two Divisions," saidthe Commission.The Commission urged that the Humanities Division consider the establishment of a Language Institute, in order tofacilitate "more adventuresome" involvement of language and literature facultywith interdepartmental and interdisciplinary courses.The Commission also recommendedthat the University establish a program incomputer sciences within the Departmentof Mathematics. Said the Commission:"The most relevant issue for theUniversity as a whole is the degree towhich the theory and practice of computer science are becoming steadily moreimportant for state-of-the-art research in avariety of disciplines within the naturalsciences, the social sciences, and the humanities. In all of these fields the development of computer science is changing theways in which research is being con-27ducted; in some, it is changing the worldwe study in a manner that must eventually command our attention. To the extentthat computer science is simply one discipline among many, we might reasonablyconclude that it need not be cultivatedhere. To the extent that it is a theoreticaland practical instrument of research in agrowing number of disciplines now pursued throughout the University, however, we risk mediocrity in many of our scholarly endeavors if we fail to recognize thisdevelopment and to plan appropriately."In conclusion, the Commission said:"We have considered the University'straditional commitment to excellence inthe pursuit of knowledge and understanding, and we have sought to identify someof the difficulties its faculty now faces inthe pursuit of that goal. We do so in the conviction that this University must continue to regard itself as more than a looseassemblage of units engaged in a collectiverace for prestige with other universities.Its enduring greatness rests upon the distinctive wholeness of its vision of the tasksof an intellectual community, and on thecommon determination of each generation of its members to pursue that visionanew." HRecommendationsThe Baker Commission made the followingrecommendations:• That each department or committee initiate an evaluation of its graduate programs in response to the questions raisedand the recommendations offered in thisreport.• That a regular review procedure be instituted, providing for the evaluation ofeach department (or group of departments)at least every ten years; this procedure tobegin with an accelerated cycle of three tofive years.• That an advisory committee on the use ofgraduate students in the College be asked tomeet systematically with faculty bodies inthe four Divisions in order to stimulate proposals for the creative use of graduatestudents in undergraduate education.• That other arrangements also be considered to provide opportunities for graduatestudents to gain experience in, or otherwiseprepare for, teaching,• That the role of the Career Counselingand Placement Office be expanded to provide fuller counseling and assistance tograduate students in relationship to non-academic careers,• That the faculty identify opportunities tocreate more general programs of graduatestudy linking particular fields and disciplines in ways that would offer a broadpreparation for academic and non-academic careers alike.• That individual students be allowedgreater flexibility to cross the lines betweenthe graduate Divisions and the professionalschools.• That a committee be appointed, includingappropriate Deans, to create the arrangements necessary to establish joint graduate/professional school programs.• That each department examine its requirements and offerings, with a view toavoiding premature specialization in introductory graduate work.• That Deans assume greater responsibilityfor common curricular matters at the Divisional level.• That M.A. programs be clarified wherenecessary to represent demanding programsof study, completion of which should provide clear evidence regarding a student'spotential for advanced research; and thatthey be completed within a maximum of sixquarters of full-time study (or its part-timeequivalent)• That faculty seek to identify opportunities to create new M.A. programs that might provide a broad context for intellectual training appropriate for non-academicas well as academic careers.• That the current twenty-seven course requirement for the Ph.D. be replaced withan equivalent residency requirement of ninequarters.• That formal course work for the Ph.D.normally not extend beyond a periodequivalent to six quarters full-time residency at a normal load of three courses perquarter.
