I’ve been trying to track down a copy of Dr. W.E. Garrison’s remarks at the 1965 dedication of the Bethany College plaque honoring Dr. Lovett, which I am reliably told were very amusing. I haven’t had any luck but I was quite taken by another short talk given that day, this one by Radoslav Tsanoff, Rice’s first professor of Philosophy. It rightly praises Dr. Lovett of course, but also provides a clear reminder of who we are supposed to be and what exactly we are supposed to be doing here. Such occasional reminders, I think, can be quite tonic:
Bonus: It was busy but awfully quiet.
