Excerpt from Jefferson's University: Glimpses of the Past and Present of the University of Virginia A great master of phrases once described a university as a place which attracts the affections of the young by its fame, wins the judgment of the middle - aged by its beauty, and rivets the memory of the old by its associa tions. The purpose of the authors of Jefferson's Uni versity has been to set forth this ancient foundation in such fashion as to accomplish this threefold purpose. It is an inspiring story, and I hope the recital will bring pleasure and high memories to those who know the 'place, and incentive to those who are reaching up to its wide spaces.
