the country,Rochester played an important part in American edu- cation during the thir- ties. The Institute of Applied Optics, found- ed in 1928 and headed by Brian O'Brien, the Physics department with men such as Lee Du Bridge, the Engi- neering School, the History department-these were but a few of the University's divisions which gained a reputation for excellence. , George Eastman, who had played a tremendous part in the new growth of Rochester, died in March, 1932. Altogether, he gave the University nearly 40 million dollars, and established it as the school with the highest per capita endowment in the world. Dr. Rhees retired in 1935, and was succeeded Rush Rhees President 1900-34 Cutler Union, College for Women the following year by Alan Valentine, brilliant young Master of Yale's Pierson College. The same progressive, sound growth of the University continued under the new administration. Development in both Science and the Humani- ties continued in the late thirties. A cyclotron was added to the Physics department, and a unique system of Honors Seminars was introduced for certain Liberal Arts courses. More and more col- leges and universities took Rochester faculty members as their presidents: Wells, Purdue, Cal Tech, and Tufts are a few of the recent ones. The Second World War saw the University of Rochester make significant contributions to victory in the fields of Optics, Medicine, Physics, and Chemistry. In 1942 the School of Graduate Studies, which had been formed in 1937, was re- organized as The Graduate School. This soon led to Rochester's inclusion in the select Association of American Universities. Today, the University of Rochester is stronger than ever. Its importance as a scientific center has V, .,- N J cs, The Quadrangle, College for Men been immeasurably enhanced by the construc- tion of the new cyclotron, the second largest in the world. It has the respect of educational America, but it is not going to rest on its reputa- tion. Rochester is going forward, forward in the spirit of George Eastman's words: We are all set now to develop our university on the broadest lines and make it one of the outstanding universities of the country. By that I do not mean one of the largest, but one of the highest rank in all the fields which it has entered. N fl Lk . Q Sikh' 'f 1 QQ" u
