It has oeen a pleasure to work Wibh him and it is with 1I~lbt that we

Fr0“L the time of the selection of Frank L. McVey as President in

lUlW, j01 Lnt Faculty—Board of Trustees Committees have played a prominent

part in the selection 01' the Presidents. The faculty is happy to have

the opportunity to cooperate a5 ain with the Board of Trustees in searching

° trator in whom the students, faculty, administration

Lor another able adminis
and Board of Trustees of the University, and the pe 3ople of the Commonwealth

of Kentucky, may have confidence.

The University must have a President who can lead the Universit] in
a harmonious and well— balanc ed development of all fields of scholarship
and service to the people of the stat:. He must be deeply attached
to the principles of freedom of inquiry and freedom of the mind. As the
President of a scholarly :Lns titution, he should himself he a scholar
and should be a forceful advoca ate of scholally endeavor. with the in~
creasinv importance of graduate worlc, he siLould oe a man who has had
broad training in the basic fields and has engaged in teaching and pros

ductive research in his own field.

Only with a background of this sort can he have a full understanding
of the goals of a complex educational institution and provide the
imaginative leadership that a university such as the University of
Kentucky must have during the years ahead.

The Faculty unanimously approved a motion to ma he the press release a part
