Bryn Mawr’s fifth president, Harris Wofford, who led the college from 1970 to 1978, was profiled by The Philadelphia Inquirer on Feb. 28.
Wofford was profiled in connection with being awarded the Presidential Citizens Medal earlier this month.
From the article:
Omnipresent as a civil-rights and antipoverty crusader in the 20th century, Wofford remains an indefatigable liberal idealist and game-changer, his friends say.
“It’s like a twist on the old adage about not giving a man a fish, but instead teaching him to fish,” said the White House director of social innovation and civic participation, Jonathan Greenblatt.
“Harris … spent his life building factories to make millions of rods and reels.”
