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.
