Dr. E. Grady Bogue, the first doctoral graduate of Memphis State, has been associated with the University since 1964. He states that higher education will face a major morale issue in the 1970's and, in order to survive, will have to find alternatives to the growth-progress syndrome, the idea that increases in faculty, budgets, enrollment, graduates, etc., is synonymous with academic progress and quality.
