"Our achievements speak for themselves"

“Judging from my experience as a graduate of one
university and the wife of a professor attached to another, it does seem to me that academic life in any country tends to make both men and women narrow, censorious and self-important. My husband, I believe to be among the exceptions, but one or two of his young donnish contemporaries have been responsible for some of the worst exhibitions of bad manners that I have ever encountered. Apparently, most dons grow out of this contemptuous brusqueness as the years go by; elderly professors, though often disapproving, are almost always punctilious. On the whole, I have found American dons politer than English, and those from provincial universities more courteous than the Oxford and Cambridge variety.”
