Colonial Echo, 1922 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Colonial Echo, 1922 This professorial period was also rich in productive labors. Dr. Dillard's clearness of thought and expression secured him a wider audience than the class room; and he published Exercises in Arith metic, Selections from Wordsworth, Fifty Letters of Cicero, and Favorite German Poems (aus dem Deutschen Dichterwald), besides numerous contributions, literary and critical, to various papers and reviews. The mere list is significant of the catholicity of his tastes and abilities. But Dr. Dillard has never been of the selfish type of scholar whose activities are bounded by the lecture room. These sixteen years of his life were fruitful in many contributions to the social and educational well-being of Louisiana. He served successively as member of the Board of Trustees of the Tulane University; as member of the State Board of Education of Louisiana; as one of the founders of the Southern Association of Colleges and High Schools, and as President of the National Conference of Church Clubs.
