Senior Convocation / Carleton Qualey
Carleton Qualey, a graduate of St. Olaf College and a retiring American History Professor, gives an overview of the nation's history and speaks on the role of intellectuals in shaping the U.S. He wants to inspire Carleton seniors to recognize their intellectuals' role. Continuing with the chronological themes thoughout U.S. political history, Qualey lists the events in a senior’s journey through their Carleton College career. He discourages the campus’ movement towards the far left, the far right is not an educated choice, either, since it is a "cult of traditionalism". Professor Qualey also warns against being part of pressure organizations, as in unions or specific lobbying groups.  Subjects include: Intellectuals; New Deal; Vietnam; activism; intellectualism; John Nason; Black Power Movement; “cult of traditionalism.”
