Item Details

Shaw, Bynum
2011-07-14 (issued)
The Shaw volume contains much information, although it is not as detailed as the first three books. It is also more readable and wanders less often than the earlier ones. It covers the years of World War II, the admission of female students, the return of the veterans, the decision to move to Winston-Salem, the move itself, and the "fruitful years of the Tribble administration." One reviewer summarized: "Scores of names and dozens of pictures, as well as sections on student life, athletics and departmental histories complete the fabric of life at Wake Forest." A review by Linda Brinson (WFU '69) in the Winston-Salem Journal September 4, 1988, H6 concluded: "Perhaps the greatest strength of Vol. IV is that Shaw does what he states as his purpose in the preface: 'to give the whole picture of the life of the college.'" Wake Forest should be well pleased with this chronicle of the years that did so much to shape its future. Anyone with an interest in the college would find this new history a valuable source of both information and understanding. (J. Edwin Hendricks)
Biographical information about the author is available in Linda Brinson, "Gentle Man of the Press," Wake Forest University Magazine, September 2, 2002. p. 46.
