Description

Excerpt from Yackety Yack, 1917 The fathers of the commonwealth, in the very founding of the Uni versity, categorically declared its object to be: The Great Cause of Humanity. William Richardson Davie, fine flower of our soil and life, avowed that the object of the University was to form citizens capable of comprehending, improving, and defending the principles of government; citizens who from the highest possible impulse, a just sense of their own and the general happiness, would be induced to practice the duties of social morality. In this high sense is this volume, the record of the life of the youth of the commonwealth, dedicated to the State which gave them this rich and ample opportunity of realizing here the meaning of education in a democracy - the preparation of citizens for the practice of the duties of social morality.
