Description

By way of historical narrative and a series of thematic vignettes, author Marvin Henberg traces the story of Linfield College in McMinnville, Oregon, from its origins to its Sesquicentennial celebration in 2008. In the pages of Inspired Pragmatism, you meet many men and women who have not only shaped Linfield, but played important roles elsewhere in Oregon, the Northwest, and the nation.

Woven together in a rich array of photographs and documents, the compelling text and vibrant illustrations show how Linfield's leaders and graduates have served the public while responding to external challenges over the past century and a half. With its substantial commitment to global studies over the past fifty years, Linfield enters the 21st century poised to leave its mark internationally as well, a point detailed in the afterword penned by Barbara Seidman, dean of faculty at Linfield College.
