Excerpt from Benjamin Russel Hanby
A plain brick structure of ample size and pleasing propor tions, rising on firm foundations from a well - kept campus; a mute array of sentinel trees, guarding the shady silence of the place and leading outward along the avenue in two noble ... ranks that stretch forth their arms in salutation to the passerby; a beau tiful stretch of lawn, facing the afternoon sun and sloping gently toward the winding stream that with never failing current mur 'murs gladly on its southward journey; and, bordering all, the neat and orderly village of vvesterville, - such is the seat of Otterbein, honored preceptress of a worthy student body, beloved alma 'll-lal'ei' of numerous and devoted alumni, typical educational institution of 'the middle west, in the strictest sense a denomina tional college: in which founders and faculty built broader and better than they knew. In glorifying the Master, they ennobled man; in advancing the interests of a sect, they made no mean contribution to the world outside of the church; in preparation for the hereafter, they achieved something of immortalitv here.
