      To all of my friends who were in Tallahassee during the '60's and early '70's especially those who attended FSU, This is a wonderful read and well reading. Dr. Marshall is an excellent writer.

    2. Robert Vandiver on said:

      I am a little confused by the author designation here. The book I read was written by Dr. Stan Marshall, President of FSU in the early-mid seventies. Ihave no clue who Ms. Wells may be. The book was interesting from a historical first person perspective of the period. It kind of became bogged down in places with university politics(BORING)which was offset by the history of hiring not hiring and then hiring Bowden.
