Compelling and witty Mar 17, 2007
Harvey Asher chronicles the decades of turmoil and glory of an excellent liberal arts college in the midwest. No Drury alumnus will pass on this book. Yet Asher's account of an institution in transition should appeal to a much wider audience of students, educators, and those who take close to heart the issues of liberal arts education. Many generations of Drury students have benefited from Dr. Asher's www (warmth, wisdom, wit). It stands to reason that this one-of-a-kind teacher capped his career at Drury by writing a compelling story of the school that owes at least part of its success and vitality to his dedication and humanism.
