Collegiate Way of Living
one, it may be, has a more intimate knowledge of
the Yale residential college system than Mark Ryan,"
writes Richard Brodhead, Dean of Yale College, in
the foreword. "Long referred to as 'the dean's
dean,' Ryan brought to this job virtues that this
collection of writings brilliantly displays: unfailing
grace of manner and expression, devotion to the
college as both an ideal and a daily social reality,
and an abiding concern for the whole human welfare
of each student in his charge. Ryan brought a large
measure of wisdom to this job, but he also learned
by living and working so intimately with students,
and this volume is the distillation of that knowledge."
An epilogue treats of the author's work in establishing
the first residential college system in Latin America,
at the Universidad de las Americas in Puebla, Mexico.
Published by Jonathan Edwards College and handsomely
designed by Yale University Printer John Gambell,

and the External World: The Shaping of the University
in the 20th Century
culmination of Professor Smith's Devane Lectures,
this is a broad analytical study of the ways in
which Yale University was changed by and influential
in world events during the past century: the expansion
of the curriculum following World War I and its
transformation yet again during the cold war; President
Griswold's attempt to return Yale to its earlier
ideals and free itself from external forces; how
and why Yale changed from an all white male Protestant
institution to today's university with its diverse
student body and faculty; Yale's role in almost
all the challenges to freedom of expression; the
contrast in scale of science and medicine in the
early decades of the century with late 20th century;
how Yale and New Haven have helped and hindered
each other; and recent developments and controversies.

Choice 1828 - 1832
book offers the love letters to her fiancé
of Sarah Dwight Woolsey--sister of Theodore, niece
of Yale's President Timothy Dwight and great-granddaughter
of Jonathan Edwards. Her father would not accept
the engagement, and for years it survived only through
chance meetings and semi-surreptitious letters.
The old merchant's objections to the fiancé
were aimed at the young man's enthusiasm for culture
and European travel. His sophistication attracted
Sarah, who was suspected in her own circle of being
too intellectual. The situation can be interpreted
and its outlines made general through surrounding
sources that show how open and how closed the young
republic was at the time.
Choice is published by PastTimes Press and can be
ordered from North Country Books, 317-735-4877 or
e-mail, email@example.com. Price: $25.
