The man, not the building.

The College has a nice page about the 16 men that have served as president of Williams. Especially good is the section on Jack Sawyer ’39, thanks to an entry written by Professor Hodge Markgraf ’52. Alas, the other entries are spotty. There is nothing about Phinney Baxter, president from 1937 — 1961 and perhaps the man most responsible for turning Williams into a top tier liberal arts College.

That seems a shame.
