The tale of a teed-off philanthropist and the head of Bowdoin College, where identity politics runs wild.
I was reading an article this week in the WSJ about Bowdoin College in Maine, famous for being the place where Joshua Chamberlain laid down the book and took up the sword during the Civil War and to which he returned to serve as President of the College. Today the college is quite different.
