later does he begin to see that what is enduring about Sewanee is a liberal arts education.
So our centennial calls upon us to compare
the elements of our consecration of a hundred
years ago with the real-life Sewanee of today.
We are invited to investigate the Sewanee liberal arts.
Now a good simple-minded definition of the liberal arts is one which is no definition at all: arts, or inquiries, which are liberal.
Liberal would be a very good word if anyone
knew what it meant. I take it to mean, qualifiedly, free.

Latin prose, and in all his actions an ornament

other people, had teachers who "got in his way,"
who did not share his interests, and who were
unsympathetic with his aspirations. But he overcame this handicap, as posterity can attest; and
who taught him no one now remembers or
cares. It has been pointed out that a teacher
might say with pride "I taught Mr. So-and-So,"
but he could hardly say "I educated him." Every educated man is self-educated, the teacher
