THE INAUGURATION OF PRESIDENT MACLEAN.

Page 11 text:

President George E. MacLean RESIDENT MAcLEAN received his preparatory education in Westfield , Academy and Williston Seminary, Mass. He was graduated from liams College in 1871 and from Yale Theological school in 1874 with the degree B. D. He went abroad in 1881 and studied at the University of zig until 1883, with the exception of two semesters at the University of Berlin, receiving the degree of Ph. D. from the former university. In 1895 he ceived the degree of LL. D. from Williams College. In college he was a member of the Delta Kappa Epsilon Fraternity, of the Jackson Natural History Society, of the Philologian Society and of Phi Beta Kappa Society. He was an editor of the Williams Quarterly and took the first prize for oratory. He was called to the chair of English Language and Literature in the University of Minnesota in 1884. In 1891, he studied in the British Museum and in 1894, he began researches in the Bibliotheque Nationale, Paris. He was elected to membership in many prominent philological societies of England and America and published a number of standard works on Old and Middle English. In 1895 he was unanimously called to the Chancellorship of the University of Nebraska. Under his administration, the standard of the institution was raised greatly, the preparatory department abolished and the attendance creased from 1,500 to 2,000 students. The financial basis of the university also was greatly enlarged, the legislature granting a one mill tax for the port of the school, the largest per cent. tax in any state. In 1899, he was called to the University of Iowa which has already felt in many ways the benefits of his administration. He has the admiration and good will of faculty and students alike and has successfully labored to give the school a unity it did not possess before. The establishment of a summer session is one evidence of progress under his direction. At the present time hopes are strong that the University, through him, will be placed in a ing and prosperous financial condition. 9
