Reflections by Sandra Looney, at the funeral of Stanley 奥尔森

I was a junior when I transferred to Augustana College and was immediately impressed by my professors: Don and Lucy Fryxell, 伯爵Mundt, 帕默艾德, 和斯坦利·奥尔森. And the respect I had in those early days only increased. 对我来说,这些老师是地球上的巨人. One of the richest courses I took was as a student of Dr. 奥尔森的《12bet中文官方平台》. 我对他感到敬畏. 奥尔森; he entered class with a briefcase full of books, and he loved those books. 他会讲述从阅读中获得的丰富感悟. I often thought I had never seen a face with a more kind countenance. 我在那双闪烁的眼睛里迷失了自我, 他在认真思考时摇头, 他思考学生问题时的沉默, the placing of his hand on his chin in his most characteristic fashion as he began his reply. Few teachers have ever conveyed to me the love of knowledge as did Dr. 奥尔森. 我纠结于奇怪的印度名字, 对琐罗亚斯德的传统感到惊奇, 对玛哈茹瓦的生平很感兴趣. Dr. 奥尔森's anecdotes etched themselves on my heart; they did not allow me to remain complacent. Other students had that same reaction: his manner was mild, 但那些轻声细语却令人不安, 迷人的, 澄清. 我仍能看见, 十七年后, his final examination before me: two long sections of names and doctrines waiting to be appropriately matched; then the pleasure of setting down some results of his teaching in essay form. I had determined that this gentleman-scholar who had given to me all semester must have nothing but my best in return. Dr. Stanley 奥尔森's class gave me the foundation knowledge of world 宗教s. As I walked through India years later, I often reflected on his teachings. But I received an even more important gift: the knowledge of what it means to be an educated person. Dr. 奥尔森教, 以他自己的生命, that "The entire object of a true education is to make men not merely do the right things but enjoy the right things, 不仅要学会而且要热爱知识, 不仅要勤劳,而且要热爱工业, not merely just but to thirst after justice" (John Ruskin).

道德价值主席的历史

In 1982 Augustana College submitted a proposal to the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) for a matching grant. This successful NEH challenge grant provided support for two endowed chairs, 对图书馆的资助, 以及对西方研究中心的支持. The two NEH endowed chairs were initially designated as the NEH Chair of Religion and 值, 以及NEH区域遗产主席. 教授. 亚瑟R. Huseboe served as the first NEH Chair of Regional Herit年龄. Dr. Huseboe还担任过英语教授, and as Executive Director of the 西方研究中心.

教授. 亚瑟L. 奥尔森 was named as the first holder of the NEH Chair of Religion and 值, 1985-90, 奥古斯塔总统威廉. 尼尔森. 与此同时. 奥尔森 assumed the post of chief coordinator/implementer of Augustana's general education curriculum, 随着新课程的实施.

作为NEH主席,Dr. 奥尔森 was particularly active in developing and teaching a number of courses related to questions of value.
