William Norwood Brigance and Wabash College: "Briggie" and the Cavemen.
Burns, David G.
Tribute is given to William Norwood Brigance, who for 38 years--until his death in January 1960--taught speech primarily at Wabash College, Indiana. In his accolade of Brigance, the author presents five reasons Brigance served his speech profession in a small liberal arts college: (1) he needed freedom to write his articles and textbooks, (2) he and his family felt ties with the area, (3) he had developed an extensive range of speaking opportunities, (4) Wabash College met his demands for both philosophical and financial support, and (5) he was devoted to the role of colleges such as Wabash in training students to participate effectively as both professionals and citizens in a democratic society.
