Author: Lovinggood, Reuben Shannon
In this letter to W. S. Sutton, head of the School of Education at UT, Lovinggood defends the teaching of the classical course at Samuel Huston College. Although nominally seeking Sutton’s feedback, the letter demonstrates Lovinggood’s absolute commitment to the intellectual merits of liberal education against what he saw as the limits of industrial education.
