Tappan's Hope
For University
Now Realized
(Material for this series has been
furnished by Dr. Frank E. Robbins,
Assistant to the President.)
The dream of Henry Phillip Tap-
pan, Michigan's second. presidengt, to
create "an American university, de-
serving the name" will be well on the
way to realization on Oct. 27 when
the tenth anniversary of President
Ruthven's service to the University
is celebrated in Yost Field House.
Although his ideas were considered
too "radical" for his- time, President
Tappan is today given much of the
credit for converting a small mid-
western college into one of America's
greatest universities within the short
space of 11 years.
A devout believer in educational
systems maintained by the state, Dr.
Tappan became president of the
University in 1852 after faculty mem-
bers had alternated in the position
since its earliest days.
He was born of mixed Dutch and
Huguenot parents on April 18, 1805
in Rhinebeck, New York. Only 16
years old when he entered Union
College, he received his bachelor's
degree in 1825. For a while he was a
Congregational minister; then he be-
became Professor of Intellectual and
Moral Philosophy at the University
of the City of New York.
In 1863, President Tappan was
forced to leave tle University be-
cause of disagreement over his edu-
cational policies. He spent the re-
nainder of his life in Vevey, Switzer-
land where he died in 1881.

Further questioning by Rapp brought
out the fact that Rempp had spoken
to the county supervisor and had
asked for an investigation, which
was granted.
According to Remp3p, Gibb had
told him that two checks were stolen
from his desk drawer and that he
would get the money in shortly.
These checks were not in the records
but Gibb had told Rempp that his
friends were helping him and that
everything would be straightened out.
The amount of the checks was $3,-
