YALE'S NEW PRESIDENT
Yale is very fortunate in having a man of such excellent ability and such broad administrative experience as Dr. James Rowland Angell to succeed President Hadley. The Yale Corporation, after nearly a year's study and a consideration of some eighty of the most learned men of our country, decided on Dr. Angell, the son of the late President of the University of Michigan, as the best qualified and most competent for its new leader.
In this action, a precedent is set in that Dr. Angell is not a Yale graduate. But he brings with him an extensive knowledge of western and eastern methods of education; a wide experience secured in business and in public service; the practice gained as a leading psychologist in the War Department and as the present chairman of the National Research Council; finally, the highest ideals as to the promotion and expansion of education. We congratulate Yale on her choice and extend to Dr. Angell our best wishes for success in this new field of his endeavors.
