Laurence M. Gould had the opportunity to direct NASA or a major foundation. There were even those who urged the polar explorer and eminent geologist known as “Mr. Antarctica” to run for the US Senate or the presidency. He chose, instead, to devote his considerable talents toward furthering the fortunes of higher education in general and Carleton College in particular, where he served for thirty years as professor of geology and as its colorful and charismatic fourth president.

Drawing upon rich resources in the archives at Carleton and elsewhere, Eric Hillemann provides a detailed chronicle of the remarkable man who created of Carleton—and, many would say, of his own life—“a beacon so bright” that it would serve those who study there as a guide for their entire lives.

About the Author: Eric Hillemann is the Archivist at Carleton College in Northfield, Minnesota.
