Bold Visions Daring Dreams
- Our Price:
Dr. Edgar M. Carlson, the ninth president of Gustavus Adolphus College, is remembered in a new book, Bold Visions, Daring Dreams, which describes his leadership at the College, his influence on private and public higher education nationwide, and his role in shaping student financial assistance programs. Carlson guided Gustavus through transformational growth and development, (1944-1968), led the Minnesota Private College Council in its work with legislative leaders on behalf of colleges and students (1968-1975), and, as a respected theologian and church leader, served the Lutheran Church worldwide. Using extensive research and rich memories, Joanna Carlson Swanson tells her father's story: one of talent, opportunities, contributions, relationships, and gifts that served the needs of church, college and society well.
