A QUARTER CENTURY OF STUDENT LIFE  AT TULANE:  A Dean's Narrative Hitory, 1949-1975  by John H. Stibbs,  edited and annotaed by John Edgar Browning

In his extraordinary memoir about his 25-year career as Dean of Students at Tulane University from the late 1940s through mid-1970s, John Stibbs gives his personal observations and anecdotes in an engaging insider's look at some of Tulane's most complex and controversial moments in its history as an institution. Completed shortly before his untimely death in 1975, the same year he was to retire, Stibbs's memoir found its way in subsequent years to a used bookstore in the French Quarter where in 2010 it was finally discovered by PhD candidate at SUNY-Buffalo John Edgar Browning,who edited and annotated the original typescript. Browning has illustrated Stibbs's memoir with photos, facsimile reproductions of student "unrest" leaflets, articles from The Tulane Hullabaloo and New Orleans's daily newspaper The Times-Picayune, as well as some of Stibbs's speeches and correspondence. A comprehensive index is provided. This is an invaluable reference work on the history of Tulane as well as the modernization of the American university system.
