Radicals in the Heartland

Another East Coast man, President Henry, unlike Stoddard, excelled at building and maintaining good relations with trustees and legislators. In today’s terms, he effectively managed up, not so much down, rarely interacting with or even being seen by students, while managing an extensive expansion of the school’s budget, enrollment, physical plant, and campuses. Students considered him an invisible man, while his superiors and peers valued him as a superb manager, if not a charismatic leader.

Keywords:   David Dodds Henry, board of trustees, Illinois legislature, postwar boom
