The Conscience Of The University, And Other Essays

Harry Howe Ransom January 12, 2019

In 1982, a century after the laying of the cornerstone of its first building, the University of Texas was ranked by the New York Times among the best in the nation No one had to do with that extraordinary achievement than Harry Huntt Ransom From 1935 to his death in 1976, he served the University in positions ranging from instructor in English to chancellor of The UIn 1982, a century after the laying of the cornerstone of its first building, the University of Texas was ranked by the New York Times among the best in the nation No one had to do with that extraordinary achievement than Harry Huntt Ransom From 1935 to his death in 1976, he served the University in positions ranging from instructor in English to chancellor of The University of Texas System In the fifties, sixties, and seventies, he held a succession of administrative posts requiring him to face a myriad of perplexing problems Among the critical issues calling for analysis and decision in those years were the post Sputnik pressure for greater emphasis on science and technology, the student revolts during the 1960s, and the defection of growing numbers of university faculty to industry and government.Harry Huntt Ransom did not merely respond to the problems of the times He had his own large ambitions for the University of Texas, in particular the improvement of student programs, the development of a vigorous faculty, and the achievement for which he is best remembered the building of a world renowned library.He was concerned with the role of the university in society, what the university should do and do well, and what it should not do Always he viewed these matters in broad perspective, and his approach to them was far sighted and deeply philosophical.As dean, vice president, president, and chancellor, Ransom wrote and spoke often on these and other important subjects Aside from the books that he wrote and edited, he left a prodigious amount of material, some of which had been published in various journals and some of which had been delivered as lectures and addresses and never made available in printed form.For the last twenty five years of Ransom s life his wife, Hazel, was his closest companion and confidant At the urging of Harry s friends, colleagues, and admirers, she undertook the task of sifting through her late husband s papers in an effort to organize and preserve some of the important contributions he had made to the thought and planning that were so instrumental in shaping the University of Texas and higher education in general In these essays we see the force of reasoning and grace of style for which Ransom was so widely admired It was he who reminded us that books last longer than buildings This is a book of lasting importance that Harry Ransom himself might have given us had he lived longer.
