AN INTERIM WITH DR. CONANT
IMMEDIATELY after Dr. Engler's resignation the Trustees appointed a committee to propose candidates for the Presidency. The ideal candidate appeared to be near at hand, in the person of Mayor James Logan. There was much enthusiasm when it became known that the post had been offered to him, and pressure to accept it was brought upon him from many directions. Mayor Logan deliberated for several weeks, then, in a long letter to the Trustees, set forth several convincing reasons why he must decline the honor. Consequently, the Board decided to move slowly in its selection, and to investigate the qualifications of numerous candidates. In June, 1911, Dr. Levi L. Conant was appointed Acting President.
