Donnybrook at Duke: The Gross-Edens Affair of 1960, Part I


Author(s):
Abstract:
This article examines the administration of Arthur Hollis Edens as president of Duke University from 1949 to 1959. It also looks at his relationship with Paul M. Gross, vice president of Duke's Division of Education. Conflict between the two developed over control of specific aspects of fundraising and the allocation of those funds at the university. While the conflict between the two began in 1956, it wasn't until early 1960 that those disagreements became public.
