Regents' Proceedings 1124
To Roscoe O. Bonisteel, as he retires from the office which he has most competently exercised for the past thirteen years, his colleagues of the Board of Regents of The University of Michigan hereby express their sincere gratitude and heartfelt good wishes.
Few among its alumni and officers can match his dedicated loyalty to this University, and few indeed have sensed with greater clarity the vision of its past and present eminence and its potentialities for the future. In this spirit he welcomed the acquisition of the North Campus, foreseeing its usefulness to meet the increasing demands for newer and larger services.
In this spirit, too, and with a lawyer's circumspection, he has displayed genuine statesmanship with reference to the policies and government of the University and in regard to the developing program of higher education in the state of Michigan.
His genial presence will be missed at the meetings of the Board, but the accomplishments of his term of office remain as a lasting monument to his ability and devotion.
