description
Lecture delivered by Provost Emeritus Ed Wilson. The years of the Scales presidency (1967-1983) will be remembered most for the creation of the Fine Arts Center and the new emphasis placed in the College curriculum on art, music, and theatre; for the purchase of our first overseas houses in Venice and London; for the founding of the Babcock School; for the gradual changes in our relationship with the State Baptist Convention; and for the sensitive way in which the University responded to issues raised by the war in Vietnam and the civil rights movement.
