Tells the story of the remarkable transformation of Southern Illinois University between 1948 and 1970 under its leader President Delyte W. Morris-a university created according to his unique image and his personal crusade. At the same time it is a tragedy that involves too much success, a very different world of a different time-even a spent man. In 1970 these combine to destroy the man and severely damage the university he created. The book is based Interviews with over 100 persons from the time and additional sources.
