Scandal on the Plains: William F. Slocum, Edward S. Parsons, and the Colorado College Controversies
Dunn, Joe P.
Great Plains Quarterly, v30 n2 p117-134 Spr 2010
This is a story about a scandal that took place on the western frontier, a sexual harassment crisis involving one of the giants of late-nineteenth and early twentieth-century education and the disgraceful treatment of the man who pursued the case. The treatment of the two related incidents in the several official histories of the institution constitutes a travesty that one is tempted to call "scandalous." The physical place of this saga is important because the original events transpired within a burgeoning frontier community and at a young western institution that was successfully carving out its place in the national academic scene.
