What is the secret of writing a good History Thesis
I am prompted to write in response to on Lloyd Reynolds. To me the dichotomy Willard proposes, “Was Lloyd a guru or a scholar?” seems unhelpful. When I took calligraphy from Lloyd in spring 1969, he was ready to retire and was no longer teaching English literature or art history, his academic subjects. At the time I saw his class as a respite from the rigors of writing a history thesis. In retrospect, I would say it had more effect on my thinking than on my still lamentable handwriting. Lloyd saw calligraphy as grounded in a certain intellectual tradition, that of William Blake, John Ruskin, William Morris, Edward Johnston, and Eric Gill. In that same academic year, Lloyd made another important contribution to Reed. When the became a crisis with the occupation of Eliot Hall, the community was polarized. Black students demanded a BSU-run college within a college. Conservative faculty insisted the discussion must wait until stern justice had been meted out to anyone in violation of the honor principle. Lloyd’s prestige on campus made his appearance at a public forum a defining event. Ignoring the terms in which the debate had hitherto been framed, Lloyd advanced the propositions that Reed had room for a black studies program and that creating one was the right thing to do. It seems simple now, but at the time his voice was a beacon of common sense in a sea of sophistry, obfuscation, and ideological frenzy. Lloyd said that to do good work you have to turn off the soap opera. It is easier advice to follow now, when the hormones are less out of control, but is not dangerous at any age. goodbye, eddie oshins From Thomas Forstenzer ’65
