Excerpt

The justification for my attempting to write the life of Doctor James Monroe Taylor is this. After we had completed the History of Vassar in collaboration, I protested that its account of his own time was too factual and colorless to be an adequate picture of his work for the college. Doctor Taylor replied: "Never mind. You may add another chapter about me after I am gone." This book is the other chapter. I have tried to make it, not a mere study in the history of education, but a living portrait, and I am grateful to many friends, most of all to Doctor Taylor's family, for the coöperation and the generosity about the use of letters which has made possible a semi-autobiography.
