A FACULTY FOR KNOWING:
Prof. Weaver Respects
Experience of Students

t

By FRED SCHOTT
EDITOR'S NOTE: This is the sec-
ond it a new series of weekly ar-
ticles on faculty personalities.)
Prof. Bennett C. Weaver, of the
English department, makes a con-
fession that students like to hear
from their teachers.
"Some of the students here
now," he said, "are richer in terms
of human experience than some
of their professors."
Prof. Weaver made that state-
ment in conjunction with a dis-
cussion of student-faculty rela-
tions, one of his favorite subjects.
Prof. Weaver is noted for his own
happy relations with students, and
he served on a student-faculty
council which no longer exists.
"No interest on the students'
part," he said. That was before
the War, however. Now he thinks
that student-faculty relations will
improve.
Browning a Must
Professionally, he is well known
on campus for his Browning
course. Some 'of his students are
bold enough to say that a "col-
lege education is not complete
without Browning from Weaver."
Prof. Weaver also teaches early

Prof. BENNETT C. WEAVER
19th century literature, world lit-
erature and Bible courses.
He also conducted an extension
class last semester in Ann Arbor
for townspeople and students on
classic poets and writers of many
countries, with an attempt to
view ancient wisdom in a mod-
ern light.
Chairman of Honors Course
One of his special loves is the
department's English Honors
Course, of which he is chairman.
It is a program unique with this
University, he thinks. Its purpose,
he said, is to "give hand-picked
students the benefit of special in-
struction" and to put "emphasis
upon the training of students in
critical and appreciative think-
ing."
There are 10 students in the
course now, he said. An indication
of what is expected from them in
the course may be seen from the
preface to the reading list:
"Every student is expected to
possess An Oxford Anthology of
English Poetry, to study its con-
tents systematically, and to bring
his copy to each class meeting.
"Each student is expected to
readaa considerable number of
books in addition to those spe-
cifically required."
The core of the course consists
of consultations between profes-
sor and student-and everyone we
know in it likes it very much.
Originated by Prof. Strauss
The Honors Course was orig-
inated by the late Prof. Louis
Strauss, former chairman of the
English department associated
with the University as student and
teacher for 47 years. Prof. Strauss
was "one of the big men of
this University, a man of rich hu-
manity and subtle understanding,"
according to his friend, Prof. Wea-
ver.
Prof. Strauss accompanied him
in pursuit of his favorite pastime
--fishing. Prof. Weaver says that
he's only snooty about one thing,
and that's his fishing ability. He
holds an almost insurmountable
record: he caught a silver muskie
in the Lake of the Woods.
"They hadn't seen one in thirty
years," he boasted.
Outside of fishing travels, Prof.
Weaver and Mrs. Weaver have
traveled extensively in Europe,
especially in Italy, where they
have explored the background of
Browning's poetry.
