Untitled address on the importance of education

Description

Box 2, Folder 13: A speech given by Welch when he received a L. L. D. (Doctor of Law) Degree from the University of Michigan. He talks about his time at the University and the importance of a good education. He praises the University for practicing the principle that intellectual culture is at its highest value when it prepares students for work. He advocates a combination of studies that are involved in our social, moral, and professional duties (a combination of the classics with studies such as mathematics) and that the early choice of a profession should determine a student's studies.
