A. L. Rowse

This is a brief addenda to Anne Cuneo's message about Professor Rowse. 
In 1956 as a very young and insecure assistant professor of English at 
the University of Kansas, the Dean suddenly sent word that he was 
sending A.L. Rowse to sit in on my seminar. I was terrified. It would 
soon become clear to every one that I was ignorant beyond belief and 
should be cashiered like Dreyfus in the old movie in front of the entire 
MLA membership. Quite the contrary. No one could have been kinder or 
more gentle than Professor Rowse. He left me a model for how to behave 
toward younger colleagues.
