Former Chancellor of Syracuse University, William Tolley, writes about the struggles of the library during the mid-20th century. This article was written amidst the dedication of the Ernest S. Bird Library in 1973. The main virtues needed of an academic administration in the trying times, he believes, is patience, thanksgiving, and the ability to utilize opportunities for learning.
