"Founders' Philosophies" (1976) - Julius A. Stratton

MIT President Emeritus Julius A. Stratton delivers an illuminating talk titled "Founders' Philosophies," as the first in a series of nine presentations by various MIT luminaries for an IAP (Independent Activities Period) event called "They Were There, " offered during January 1976. Quoting from a number of key documents in MIT's history, Stratton provides a detailed assessment of the scope and vision of William Barton Rogers, founder of the Institute, and a comprehensive historical context to the climate of the times.
