Edwin B. Bronner history course student reports

Identifier: HCS-002-006

Scope and Contents

This collection contains four student reports written for history courses taught by Professor Edwin B. Bronner. All reports pertain to the history of Haverford College. Two of the reports are formulated around oral history interviews with Archibald MacIntosh. The report about MacIntosh written by David Ford Walton (Class of 1974) focuses mostly on what the atmosphere of Haverford was like during the years MacIntosh was a student, professor, or acting president. The essay about MacIntosh written by Steven Blake Shubert highlights how MacIntosh's experiences at Haverford correlate with larger moments in Haverford's history. Another report contains findings from oral history interviews with two retired Haverford professors, Leon Rittenhouse and Cletus Oakley. The report was completed by Richard L. Falk Jr. Falk writes about his methodology for collecting and documenting both interviews and describes both interviews in detail. The report includes a summary of both interviews and an explanation for why it is important to speak with former Haverford professors. The last report was written by George R. Conyne and chronicles how Gilbert White's presidency ushered in an era fo reform for Haverford. The report also considers White's role as a Quaker president and examines how students and faculty received his presidency.
