I May Have Been Right about Barry Mills

by Roger Clegg

When Bowdoin College president Barry Mills announced his resignation this week, I speculated that the National Association of Scholars’s scathing report on the school might have played a role. The archly-worded first sentence in this statement by Bowdoin’s board of trustees suggests that, indeed, Mills’s resignation was not entirely voluntary, since it applauds Mills for “his willingness to do what he thinks best for our College, even if it means stepping down from a job that he does so well and truly loves.”
