Hidden History Of The University Of Chicago


Hidden History Of The University Of Chicago


Description:

The Hidden History of the University of Chicago: Harper's Bazaar, 1891-1916 Crescat scientia; vita excolatur The City White hath fled the earth, but the City Grey neer shall die. Join Mr. Thorstein B. Veblen, Tutor in Political Economy (AB Carleton, PhD Yale) as he leads a campus tour as part of the University Extension program. Stroll through the Quadrangles, give out a spirited yell at Stagg Field, purchase picture postcards at the Press, participate in the University Sing where will be performed such delightful ditties as John D. Rockefeller and The Professors Make the Customs at the U, and delight in the garrulous conversation and sharp wit of Buttons, Green Halls oft-put-upon elevator operator. Learn the answer to such pressing questions as: Are anarchists to blame for the collapse of Harper Librarys west tower? How old is Old Haskell Door? Will the sex segregation of the Junior Colleges preserve the manly arts? Is Mr. John Dewey, Head of Philosophy, misguided in his opposition to affiliate with all Chicago Public Schools? Where are the rifles and munitions stored? And, most important of all, can Latin be saved? Remember, Pointer for New Students No. 11: This is The University of Chicago. http://www.facebook.com/pages/Chicago-IL/Pocket-Guide-to-Hell-Tours/75337819907 http://www.uchicago.edu/features/20091221_durica.shtml
