This book is a narrative of the Eastern Illinois State College at
Charleston, Illinois. I t does not attempt to interpret Eastern's role
in our national educational development. The writer has not used
the story of Eastern as a means for expounding educational doctrine,
and he hopes that his own pedagogical theories have not intruded
themselves in these pages.
The book has been written for the former 'students and teachers
of Eastern and for the present and future sons and daughters of the
school. Those who come to Eastern in the years ahead may find in
these pages some hint of the forces and personalities which have made
the school and some understanding of the school's traditions. Eastern
is a good school and here, at least in part, is why.
