Linking Brooks to the Past

library While marking one of my student’s research papers, I noticed that he cited Henry Luce as an anti-communist source. I asked the student if that name sounded familiar, he said no. I then asked him about Brooks’ School Library. He looked at me strangely with an empty glare. I said that is okay. This is your first year here. Brooks’ library is named Henry Luce III Library; I went on to tell him that Henry Luce, the father, launched and edited Time Magazine. His son, Henry Luce III, graduated from Brooks with the class of 1942 and would later edit the Time Inc.
