T. T. Eaton on Education


In honor of the beginning of classes for a new school year today at Union University, I am posting this brief essay by T. T. Eaton on education. This is taken from the 1905-1906 edition of Lest We Forget, the Union yearbook. At the time of this writing Eaton was serving as a trustee of Union.


Ben Mitchell recently shared this essay, and I thought it was a great statement on true education. I am honored to begin my fifteenth year of teaching at an institution which continues in its heritage of providing the sort of education described here.

    Eaton had quite a gift for expressing a good word. And without him, there would be no Union University.
