ALMA MATER by Henry Seidel Canby


Email this review


Continuation of Age of Confidence into college days in the close of the 19th century, and early years of teaching at Yale. Like the previous book, it is a nostalgic backward glance to a past that is on a pinnacle in memory:- the good old days when college spirit meant something, when bigger men served on faculties,when students made more of less good educational facilities. His criticisms are few-- his praise expansive. He shows a college town, built on a small town pattern, with a small town's social distinctions.
