dbo:abstract
  • Thomas Hedley Reynolds was the fifth president of Bates College in Lewiston, Maine and an American historian. He is known for widely expanding Bates' national reputation for scholarship and academic rigor. Reynolds increased faculty salaries exponentially and attracted many high quality professors. A pioneer of gender equality, he improved gender equity within the college administration as well as dramatically lowering the student to faculty ratio. He was instrumental in the guidance of Bates College through the campus tensions of the late 1960s and 1970s with an emphasis on community engagement in the decision-making of the college. He led Bates to strengthen its faculty and curriculum, add such key facilities as a modern library and arts center, diversify its student body and eliminate the SAT requirement. (en)
