Here's how Julius Rosenwald
charms geological professors by lib
erally dishing out the dough.
A University of Chicago bulletin
prints the stenographic report of a
speech by Thomas Chrowder Cham
berlain, Ph. D., L. L. D., head of the
department of geology, at the laying
of the cornerstone of Julius Rosen
wald hall on Convocation Day.
Chamberlain said:
"I wish it were in my power to
clothe in fitting words the apprecia
tion which my colleagues and the
whole staff of the university feel for
the expression of generosity which
has made this noble structure a pos
sibility. I wish it were possible ade
quately to express Our admiration
of the intellectual powers that by
keen, penetrating insight and mas
terly control of conditions have
found fruition in the resources that
made this gift possible, and still more
to express our appreciation of that
nobility of spirit which has so unsel
fishly devoted the fruit of toil, vigil
ance, earnest endeavor and persist
ent care to the service of research
and the promotion of education. Per
haps I might suggest this, in some
measure, in the deep gratification we
feel that our wish to give this tan
gible and lasting impression expres
sion has been graciously given pre
cedence over the most purpose of the
giver and that this noble structure
will bear for ages the name of Julius
Rosenwald hall."
