description:

This image scanned from the June 1924 (Vol. XII, No. 6) issue of the Indiana University News-Letter. The cover shows the "Spirit of Indiana" holding images of Indiana University. The cover reads, in part: "The Great Hoosier State Offers You Indiana University Mother of College Presidents."

This particular issue of the newsletter opens into a poster showing the buildings and grounds of Indiana University. At the center of the poster is a quote from the inaugural address of William Lowe Bryan which reads, in full: "What the people need and demand is that their children shall have a chance - as good a chance as any other children in the world - to make the most of themselves, to rise in any and every occupation, including those occupations which require the most thorough training. What the people want is open paths from every corner of the state, through the schools, to the highest and best things which man can achieve. To make such paths, to make them open to the poorest and lead to the highest, is the mission of democracy."

This image also appears on page 1 of the August 1, 1925 edition of The Indiana Alumnus.
