Abstract

This little brochure, after briefly recounting the growth of the university, emphasizes the permanent character of educational endowments. The history of universities has indeed shown, even through periods of religious, social and economic upheaval, that they are the most enduring of human activities. Methods of giving to Northwestern University are seductively set forth. The needs of the university are described in detail —for buildings and their maintenance, $58,000,000; for various educational purposes, from $17,000,000 to $42,000,000, a total of from 75 to 100 millions. It is encouraging, to say the least, to find that there are people who profess to believe that there still is so much money in the world.
