The dedication for this volume of the Calyx reads as follows: When, at the call of President Wilson, HENRY PARKER WILLIS came to Washington and Lee to establish the School of Economics and Politics, it was with an already remarkable record of achievement in his chosen profession; and concerning him one of the world's greatest teachers, had spoken these golden words: "He is the most intellectually honest and sincere man I know." The splendid promise of young manhood has been brilliantly fulfilled, and as an author and editorial writer who commands an almost world-wide audience, he has won the confidence of those who seek the truth, as well as the no less honorable obloquy of those who fear it. To what is perhaps the most important element of the man's personality, however, we alone can bear witness who have known him in the intimacy of the class room and campus; and it is as a tribute to his genius as a teacher and the inspriation which has widened from his class-room to the furthest bounds of the activity of our University, that this book is inscribed to him by the students of Washington and Lee through their representatives, The Editors. For we are not unmindful that he has kept the trust of Washington and has held fast to the heritage of Lee and of Wilson.The available file is a PDF.
