FULLER ADMINISTRATION BEGINS
EARLY in 1882 Dr. Charles 0. Thompson yielded to the insistence of the trustees of Rose Polytechnic Institute that he come to Terre Haute, Indiana, to become first president of their institution. The offer of this post had been made to him time after time for nearly a decade, but he had steadfastly held to his conviction that it was his duty to remain at Worcester. The final call was flattering. The Rose trustees convinced him that they had been unable to find a man so well qualified to inaugurate the new school, and that the opening would be still longer delayed if he did not come. They also promised him a generous remuneration which he could not afford to ignore.
