guidance of others. Never verbose or flowery, he was yet a speaker who
brought a subtle and enduring inspiration to his listeners. Possessed of
an enquiring mind, he stimulated the intellectual curiosity of others.
Thoughtful, he provoked others to think. Dignified, he yet possessed a
warm and genuine sense of humor. Scholarly, he yet was thoroughly
practical when the time for action was at hand. He was the sort of
man who "grew on you,, day by day.
All these great gifts were unselfishly brought to the service of the Uni-
versity. Frank L. McVey recognized that the great purpose of a University
is to instill two fundamental qualities in those who come under its influence:
clarity of thought, and an unending thirst for knowledge and wisdom. He
thought of a University as an exciting place because it is the field of battle
of ideas, a place where ideas are disputed and weighed, and every assertion
tested. He understood that the great danger today is the cult of the cheap,
the shoddy, and the false. Of these things he was impatient, and he sought
to instill such a sense of values in the students and faculty of the University.
Long after the many edifices of brick and steel which he caused to be con-
structed on her campus are gone, the intangible but indelible imprint of the
mind and heart of Frank L. McVey will live in and hover over the University

life and legacy of Frank LeRond McVey, late President and President
