Review quote

"The essays in this volume tell the stories of remarkable individuals, all of whom came to play leading roles in their fields and make contributions of lasting importance. Reading them, we learn about the many motivations that drive such people, about what led them to make their careers at Illinois, about the challenges they faced, and about what they accomplished. Some of these people are well known; others are less so. They exemplify, in different ways, the rare joining of determination, ability, commitment to excellence, and, sometimes, genius that marks the academy at its best.... The story is appropriately and best told in personal terms, for a university is a magnificently human institution."show more
