In the multitude of students so quickly gathered, in the high character of the instruction, in the variety and extent of original research, in the valuable contributions to human knowledge, in the uplifting influence of the University as a whole upon education throughout the West, my highest hopes have been far exceeded.
-- John D. Rockefeller, Letter to the President and Trustees of The University of Chicago, December 13, 1910
