Portraits Of May B. Van Arsdale
On a fortunate day in the fall of 1897 two young assistants were unintentional witnesses of an historic event—the welcome to Teachers College of James Earl Russell by Miss Grace Dodge. Little did we realize at the time that that moment was to usher in the development of educational thought, the influence of which would be felt around the world and would lay the foundations for at least one important phase of cooperation absolutely essential to the realization of any hope for the achievement of “One World.”
As one who enjoyed the high privilege of living through those eventful thirty years under the inspired and inspiring leadership of a great dean, I am honored to have this opportunity to pay my humble but very grateful tribute to his memory.
