Description

General Dwight D. Eisenhower and Admiral Chester W. Nimitz came to campus in 1946 to receive the honorary degree of Doctor of Laws from the University of Richmond for the major role they played in World War II for the Allies. At the Honors Convocation, General Eisenhower quotes Abraham Lincoln's famous "house divided" speech that originally referred to a country divided over the issue of slavery to make a comparison to how the United States can live in peace with other nations after World War II even if the two houses are "constructed differently, of different appearance, of different materials." Admiral Nimitz states that the greatest weapon is education, and that intellectual resources must be used "wisely, economically and decisively."
