Yet they instilled in their son the values of education, self-improvement, and perseverance. Because of Wachmans beliefs in human progress, he learned not only how to survive in hard times, but how to flourish. A newly minted PhD, Wachman served in World War II as a combat platoon sergeant where he was first drawn to teaching by his desire for work of lasting value. He proved a man of vision and administrative ability, qualities that suited him to lead two great universities renowned for their commitment to extending educational opportunity. During the Civil Rights era, Wachman served as the president of Lincoln University, the countrys oldest historically Black college- later he guided Temple University through fiscally troubled times.The Education of a University President recalls Wachmans distinguished career in education and his steadfast dedication to liberal values.
