Wayne State University History Cites
Distinctions by Jewish News Editors
Under the title "A Place of
Light," Wayne State University's
history, published by Wayne State
University Press, presents the rec-
ord of many notable achievements
and emerges as a valuable account
of this city's cultural life.
Written by Dr. Leslie L. Hana-
walt, director of History-of-Wayne
Project and professor of English
at WSU, this work, extensively
illustrated, fully annotated, re-
views the university's emergence
into its present status as one of
the country•s great schools of
learning in many fields.
"A Place of Light" is a thorough
work. Personalities of note who
served on the faculty, who are
presently associated with the uni-
versity and the many who had
their roles in the great school are !
given due recognition.
Reference is made to the
Leonard N. Simons Collection
of books and maps and to the
Kasle collection of Judaica pre-
sented to the university library
by the Abe Kasle; the role of
Leonard Kasle also is indicated.
There are numerous mentions
of the work in the university of
one of its pioneer professors, Dr.
Samuel M. Levin.
Interestingly, two Jewish News
staff membres receive special men-
tion in this history. Ruth Levine
now Mrs. Louis Cassel) is listed
as one of the "able editors" of
the Collegian. in the post she held
in 1945. She is a former city editor
of The Jewish News.
More extensive reference is
made to the present city editor of
The Jewish News, Mrs. Harold
Dubin, who as Charlotte May
liyams—in her junior year. (Sep-
tember, 1959) wrote the annual
welcome to freshmen in the Col-
legian. The WSU history quotes
the text of Mrs. Dubin's editorial
comment to the "freshies." includ-
ing the following:
"Wayne State University is un-
like any other school you have
ever attended or will ever attend
. It is not a campus college in
the rakish sense of the word, nor
does its football team plan a head-
on collision with Michigan State
in the Rose Bowl game. It is a city
university. You leave the house
in the morning and return at night.
