Inhaltsangabe: Laurence M. Gould had the opportunity to direct NASA or a major foundation.There were even those who urged the polar explorer and eminent geologist known as "Mr. Antarctica" to run for the US Senate or the presidency. Gould chose, instead, to devote his considerable talents toward furthering the fortunes of higher education in general and of Carleton College in particular, where he served for thirty years as a professor of geology and its colorful and charismatic fourth president. Drawing upon rich resources in the archives at Carleton and elsewhere, Eric Hillemann provides a detailed chronicle of the remarkable man who created of Carleton­ and, many would say, of his own life-"a beacon so bright" that it would serve those who study there as a guide for their entire lives. "While Carleton College likes to think of Larry Gould as its own, he commanded a national and international reputation as a world class scientist, explorer, spellbinding lecturer, and spokesman for liberal education. In his thirty years at Carleton (1932-62), seventeen as president, he was immensely popular with students and alumni while also presiding with an authority that today would be unthinkable. His students and younger colleagues were his family, and he was equally at home with eighteen-year-old students, major scientists, business leaders, and influential politicians. He had a zest for life, whether trout fishing, sledging in sub-zero Antarctica, enjoying a concert, or leading an academic conference. Eric Hillemann has written a fulsome, lively account that does justice to this multifaceted giant . It is rich in personal details but also puts Gould's life into the context of world and national events of the day. Many states and other institutions claim Laurence McKinley Gould, and Hillemann's account shows why." Stephen R. Lewis, Jr., president emeritus, Carleton College
