Rosemond Tuve: A Life of the Mind
Peter E. Randall Publisher, 2004 - 325 pagine
This is the biography of Rosemond Tuve, a remarkable woman scholar, who began life on the prairies of South Dakota and rose to honor and acclaim in the United States and abroad. Professor "Roz" Tuve believed passionately in the power of education to transform the lives of men and women. Her story is told mainly in her own compelling voice through personal letters, diaries, and lectures that are witty, profound, and eminently readable. Tuve was an internationally recognized Renaissance scholar, lecturing extensively in the US, France and Germany throughout her lifetime. A tenured professor at Connecticut College, she was the first visiting professor to Harvard University in 1958, and to Princeton University in 1961. She received a Fulbright fellowship in 1957, and received a NATO fellowship in 1960 to Aarhus University in Denmark. An inspiring story of one of the leading educators of her time, a reading of Rosemond Tuve is a reflection on education and rewards of the life of the mind.
