It is located on the Neckar river in a fertile valley known as the Stuttgart Cauldron an hour from the Swabian Jura. Stuttgarts urban area has a population of , making it the sixth largest city in Germany.
Since then the building had continued to deteriorate, Vice President Atkins explained. While the college considered how to dispose of the building, both the New London Police and Fire Departments expressed interest in using it as a site for training operations.
It was originally built as a Cape Cod-style house and served as a residence untilwhen it was purchased by Elizabeth and Allen Crane and turned into a summer hotel called the Cranehurst Inn.
It accommodated summer visitors untilwhen it became a year-round hotel, which served visitors to the area until The inn was then used briefly as a restaurant until it was acquired by Colby-Sawyer College inwith assistance from some 60 local donors who contributed nearly 50 percent of the purchase price.
The college named Seamans House in honor of its builder and original residents. She was born in in Manchester, N. The week after graduation, she married H. Raymond Danforth, an educator who eventually became president of New England College, and with whom she raised their three children.
She shared a copy of her UNH diary, in which she wrote: It just gets one and it holds. Seamans House served the college well for nearly 30 years, but like some of the older structures that once graced Main Street, it reached the end of its life, not only in serving the campus, but as a building.
Separated from her family, whom she would not see again for over 30 years, she crossed an ocean and a cultural divide to seek an education. What she found was a new life in a strange land.
The eldest daughter in a family of nine children, she had no thoughts of applying to an American university.
Born to American missionaries and raised in Shanghai, the twin sisters were, at the time, the only students from Asia enrolled at Colby Junior College. Why not give one to someone from Asia? Because their father was Dr. After interviewing with Dr.
McCracken, her place at Colby Junior was secured. At that time,Japan had already invaded the northeastern provinces of China and was launching an all-out bombardment of Shanghai. Getting safely to America, though, was no easy matter, as it required perilous travel by ship.
There, joined by more than students — mostly men, mostly graduate students, almost all older — she boarded a Canadian ship bound for Vancouver.
Her journey across the Pacific Ocean would last a month. Despite the Japanese threat and the uncertainty of leaving her family for an unknown destination, the young student found the experience exhilarating. I left the troubles behind. Upon docking in Vancouver there followed a train ride to Seattle, and from there a weeklong journey by rail across the United States.
Waiting for her at the station were two advisors and President Sawyer himself. After the war, they settled in the Boston area, both earning their doctorates in sociology from Harvard and raising a family of three children.
By this time, Mao Zedong had established the People's Republic of China, and AiLi faced yet another obstacle in communicating with her family. I had a sister who had gone to Hong Kong, so during the Maoist years I used to write her the barest news: So communication was minimal.
President Nixon visited China, an historic event leading to thawed relations between the two countries, the Chins jumped at the chance. We followed Nixon right into China!
She explains that, although the Chinese were resistant to capitalist influences, they wanted to improve their factories. Of her family, four siblings now live in the United States, one sister having emigrated in the s, the rest making their way during the thaw of the s.
Has Ai-Li ever thought about retiring to China? She considers the question thoughtfully before shaking her head with a smile. All my cultural habits, my needs, my wishes are here. Yet there was another, more practical reason for his presence.
The bombardment of Shanghai had prevented Ai-Li from traveling directly to America, causing her to arrive after the beginning of the school term. As a result her dorm room had been given to another student.'Education and the Soul' by Jack Miller.
