The intense concentration on technology that
characterizes our dav requires us to hold firm to a
world view that reaches beyond this single integral
part. We see in the advances made through ap-
plied science a tremendous nonmoral potential for
both good and evil. This potential can be handled
only through a serious studv of a wide range of al-
ternative values. It thus becomes not only a neces-
sity but an obligation to re-evaluate and continually
re-emphasize the function of the liberal arts, because
through the many facets of this foundation of learn-
ing we can best look into the whole of human ex-
perience, we can best view not only the machinery
of our civilization but its ultimate impetus, and finally
we can best build the values necessary for the full
and positive utilization of these enormous techno-
The liberal arts then are not a framework of
study for any single isolated group but the ground
floor for all groups working for the advancement of
the human race. Furthermore, through a liberal, or
perhaps better yet a liberating education, we seek
to free ourselves from the prejudices that may arise
from regarding only one side of our world. It is
thus to the liberal arts-to the search for a broader,
clearer world horizon that we dedicate this book.

On February 27, 1955, Dr. Lelcnd H. Carlson was formally installed as
the eleventh president of Rockford College. His investiture was held in con-
junction with the 108th anniversary of the chartering of the college. Univer-
sities, colleges, and learned societies from across the nation sent delegates
and formal greetings to the college on the occasion.
Always significant in the history of any college, the events of the week
end were given additional import by an historic decision of the Rockford Col-
lege Board of Trustees, on Saturday, February 26, to extend the educational fa-
cilities of Rockford College to men through the establishment of a coordinate
Thus, 108 years after its founding, Rockford College was to return to its
historical origin in a coordinate situation and Dr. Carlson was to begin his ad-
ministration in an atmosphere rich in a reaffirmation of past excellences but
also bright in the anticipation of future uniqueness and new service to the
entire realm of education.
