The Dahlstrom Projects
This page is devoted to the writing and recollections of Dr. Carl Enoch
William Leonord Dahlstrom, late professor of English, University of Michigan
at Ann Arbor, Portland State College and Portland State University.
For the PSU Center for Excellence in Writing, I am preparing a small book
on Nina Mae Kellogg Dahlstrom, for whom her husband endowed scholarships
and an annual lecture.
My major work is Dead Classics: A Memoir of the Humanities, a biography
of Professor Dahlstrom centering on the sixties and seventies, a golden
age for the English department and the Humanities at PSU. In the nineties,
the public library system fought for it's life by marketing means: flashy
renovations, and bookstore formats and collections . No longer is it an
archive of culture, an arsenal of information for our democracy.

But there will also, I think, always be men and women who will transcend
material existence. They will attain more and suffer more than others. But
they will live significant lives. ...Perhaps this is only tinkling brass.
But you can always be comforted by the feeling that you have elected to
be a human being of good will and good faith. You have elected consciously
to try to live up to your good will and good faith. I am convinced that
it will support you and give you strength in the roles that you assume as
well as those you take up voluntarily.
