Abstract:

The collection contains a tape of the second interview conducted by Charles E. Moran with Spicer, 1976, and a transcript by Champ Clark, 2000, together with a transcipt of an earlier interview with Spicer, 1975, for which the tape is no longer extant.

Spicer discusses the Post-War College Committee appointed by John Lloyd Newcomb to consider the proper function of the College in maintaining a liberal arts program as opposed to technological or professional training. He emphasizes the importance of teaching over research.

Spicer also discusses his "extramural" work on the Virginia Commission on County Government and in the aftermath of the Gray Commission report [Governor's Commission on Public Educaiton].

In addition he mentions Colgate W. Darden's defense of academic freedom, his commitment to public education, support of the Gray plan and disassociation from massive resistance.

In conncection with the Gray plan he mentions Hardy Cross Dillard's support and Earnest Jackson Oglesby's opposition.

Spicer concludes with a discussion of the changes he witnessed, particularly co-education and the roles of President Shannon and T. Braxton Woody, and comments briefly on grade inflation.
