Memories of the Early Life and Development of Minnesota (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Memories of the Early Life and Development of Minnesota When I told him that I would like a position to teach mathe maties, it struck him more than favorably, as he said that that was his line of work, and that it did not give him any time to run the university and he wanted some one to handle the classes. We went around with his horse and buggy among the members Of the Board, and I found that the general scare which everywhere existed made them hesitate about making any arrangements for the future running of the school, not knowing whether or not it would ever open again. The presi dent, whose name I have forgotten, said that when school would open again, which he hoped would be in the fall, he felt quite certain that I would be offered a position as assistant teacher in mathematics. A majority of the board were really in favor of engaging me, and the other members were not op posed, excepting only their apprehension as to future pros peets of the university in such calamitous times. This came to pass in the fall, when I was on the government surveys in the northern part of Minnesota and could not accept. If this open ing had occurred or had been decided upon before I came to this state, it would without doubt have changed the course of my whole life.
