Celebrating the sesquicentennial of Illinois CollegeOld Illinois,” the oldest college in Illinoisthis perceptive history provides an account to which students will turn for the light it casts on the growth of higher education in the Middle West and the development of high ideals of Christian education alluded to in the book’s title.
Illinois College is fortunate indeed in having its history so ably written, first by Charles H. Rammelkamp, the College’s fifth president (190532), on whose centennial history Charles E. Frank, a longtime faculty member, here builds. Brilliantly abridging Rammelkamp’s earlier work, which forms the first part of this book, Dr. Frank proceeds systematically to recount and evaluate the College’s eventful past fifty years.
Recalling Evangelist’s charge to Christian in Pilgrim’s Progresskeep the light in your eye, and go up directly thereto”Dr. Frank sympathetically but resolutely interprets the history of this small college in the Mississippi Valley. His is, however, a pilgrimage of ideas, and his account, though of growth and of buildings, never loses sight of the College’s beginnings or of its progress.
