Burke Aaron Hinsdale

Regents Accept Grants of $208,000

(EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the 13th
. in a series of 21 articles featuring
the namesakes of the men's resi-
dence halls.)
Strangers said that Prof. Burke
Aaron Hinsdale was unsympathet-
Ic and harsh. His appearance was
described as that of a backwoods
farmer. His long, scraggly beard
and somewhat rustic manners must
have been foreboding to- people
meeting him for the first time.
Assuredly, the professor of edu-
cation and second holder of the
'U' on B -law
The Ann Arbor-Washtenaw
County Branch of the American
Civil Liberties Union sent a letter
of congratulations and apprecia-
tion to University President Har-
lan Hatcher and the members of
the Board of Regents Monday, ap-
proving the tentative Sec. 8.1'i.A
of the University bylaws, and urg-
ing permanent passage of the ac-
tion as soon as possible.
The new bylaw deals with out-
side speaker policies for Univer-
sity student organizations, and
provides that student organiza-
tions must inform speakers of re-
strictions against advocating any
action "prohibited by the rules of
the University or which is illegal
under federal or state law."
Freedom of Speech
'The letter says:
"The Ann Arbor - Washtenaw
County Branch of the American
Civil Liberties Union extends to
you its congratulations and its
appreciation for your affirmation
of the basic principle of freedom
of speech contained in the tenta-
tively approved Sec. 8.11 A of the
University bylaws, dealing with
sponsorship by student organiza-
tions of public meetings to be ad-
dressed by speakers who are not
members of the University staff.
"We believe that the p0-
sition a now taken is substan-
tially in advance of that previous-
ly taken by the University. In
some respects the bylaw is less
conducive to freedom of speech
and inquiry than is ideally desir-
able and this is especially of para-
graph 1(a).
"However, we wish to express
our support for the University ad-
ministration in its efforts to take
this forward step and to provide
on its campus a forum for the
free expression of ideas. We urge
that the tentative approval be
made permanent at the earliest
possible date.
"It is possible, of course, that
the technical provisions of the by-
law might be administered by sub-
ordinate officials of the Univer-
sity in such a way as to effect im-
proper corgtrol over the content of
speeches. \
No Such Abuse
"We have no reason to expect
any such abuse, and we foresee a
good faith effort to implemen
your excellent general statqmenl
of policy.
"We do hope, however, that you
will take an early occasion to
make clear to those persons
charged with actual administra-
tion of the bylaw that it should
be liberally administered in ac-
cordance with its spirit."
Commenting on the letter, Rob-
ert Ross, chairman of Voice Po-
litical Party, said that "this con-
tradicts the traditional libertarian
position. I understand that tradi-
tion to be one of viewing critically
and skeptically laws which woul
restrict the content of speech.
ACLU Interpretation
"It is clear that the new bylav
does just that, but the local chap
ter of ACLU has chosen to inter

pret it as they hope it will be in"
terpreted," he continued.
"Libertarians have usually as
sumed that laws will be enforcec
as they are written and have critic
cized their potential for restric
tion on that basis. The local chap
ter of the ACLU has accepted ar
guments of political expediency
rather than make a libertarian
argument," he said.
"I think their letter is a tragic

chair of the department of science
and art of teaching (the predeces-
sor of the School of Education),
was unrelenting in argument. He
would perceptively detect and ex-
pose the weak points in his ad-;
versary's position, perhaps incur-
ring dislikes in the process of do-
ing so.
Born in Ohio in 1837, Prof. Hins-
dale attended the Western Reserve
Eclectic Institute (later Hiram
College) where he struck up a
friendship with his teacher, Prof.
James A. Garfield, later President
of the United States. The two car-
ried on a 25-year correspondence
of which 900 letters are preserved
in the Library of Congress.
Opposite Directions
During those years the careers
of the two men went off in oppo-
site directions: Prof. Garfield's to
politics and eventually the presi-
dency; Prof. Hinsdale's to the sci-
ence of education, first as presi-
dent of Hiram College, then as su-
perintendent of schools in Cleve-
land, and finally as head of the
University's department of science
and art of teaching.
Despite the divergence of their
careers, the correspondents had
much in common: both were prod-
ucts of Western Reserve; both were
devoted to the Church of the Disci-
ples of Christ; both had been
brought up in the anti-slavery tra-
dition, and both were scholars in
outlook, men of ideas gifted with
President Garfield's success in
politics was matched only by Prof.
Hinsdale's achievements as an ed-
ucator. Prof. Hinsdale was a his-
torian of considerable eminence,
his book, "The Old Northwest,"
enjoyed a good reputation among
sor State Leader
He was prominent in the state
as a member of the National Edu-
cational Association and of the
National Council of Education. He
served as president of the latter
body in 1897. At the time of his
death in 1900, Prof. Hinsdale was
presiding as president of the Mich-
igan State Teachers' Association.
The bewiskered educator had
been influential in the shaping of
University affairs. He had been a
man of considerable common sense
and independence and a forceful
thinker and speaker.,
The Regents posthumously es-
tablished an honorary scholarship
in his name and the University
designated a house in East Quad-
rangle, "Hinsdale House.'
