The Isle of Tranquility in an Age of Turbulence

Written By: Phillip Stone - Oct• 31•14

This morning I posted a student honors thesis from 1981 to our digital repository.  It’s a study of student life at Wofford in the 1960s and 1970s by David Morgan, who went on to a distinguished career as a professor of French at Furman.

The title “The Isle of Tranquility” was apparently coined by President Charles Marsh to describe Wofford’s stability in a tumultuous era, but some students in that era found the concept fairly unexciting.

The honors thesis, which runs about 34 pages, was one of our summer scanning projects, and if you are curious, you can download and read it from our digital repository.
