Elmendorf Resigns; Successor Sought For those who did not catch the brief announcement in the ments for alumni weekend, President John Elmendorf announced his resignation on May 1, effective June 30, 1972. Dr. Elmendorf said, "\1y decision to resign was based on an evidently irreconcilable impasse between my v1ews on governance and ive policy related to the role of the president and those of members of the Board of Trustees of ew College." President of the college since the start of the academic year in 1965, Dr. Elmendorf was granted a Sabbatical year by trustees and said that he \'liOLtld spend the time writing and consulting w1th other institutions concerned with innovative changes in higher education. Since Dr. Elmendorf's resignation, trustees have been leading a search for a successor and at least eight candidates have been interviewed by trustees, faculty, staff and students. The search ha narrowed considerably and an announcement is expected on the selection by early fall. 1ru tees said the change would in no way affect the policies of the college.

Elmendorf A number of faculty and staff were trying to figure out a way to honor Dr. Elmendorf a he cone luded his seven years as prc'>ldent of the college and finally they went to him for suggestions. He said that, rather than a gift or some static memorial, a fund be set up which would be used to bring back to campus graduates of "lew College who are working on their doctorates. Each of these graduate students would return for varymg periods of t1me to lecture, teach or consult with present students. Such a fund has now been set up dBegun and officially des1gnated as the John Elmendorf Fund Contributions are being sought from members of the ew College community, including alumni, ami some $732 has been contributed by faculty, staff and trustees to date. If alumni wish to contribute, they should make checks payable to New College and designate them for the John Elmendorf Fund. Send them to Funnan A.rthur, Director of Public Relations, P. 0.
