Louis Waller: “The months I spent at the Institute were among the most agreeable I have experienced away from my own university. This was because of the ambience of the Institute, especially its small number of Fellows and the thoughtful support provided for each one of us. I wish I could have stayed longer.”
Muriel Casals: “An atmosphere where work, and both intellectual and social life were wonderfully combined.”
James Craigen: “All the Fellows I have ever spoken to have been favourably impressed with their time at the Institute, which at the end of the day depends on them as much as on others.”
Philip S. Elder: “One of the most beneficial aspects was the periodic series of seminars offered by the Fellows. I very much appreciated the exposure to the diverse fields represented by the various scholars, and the chance to test my ideas in such a congenial atmosphere.”
