Re: Errors in the article.

I would add that the article implies Bix was not expelled from Lake Forest when, of course, he was.

However, regarding my beloved alma mater, the University of Iowa, you are incorrect, Albert. It was founded in 1847 as the State University of Iowa; Iowa State was founded a few years later as the State Agricultural College and Model Farm, the nation's first land-grant college. So Bix did, in fact, enroll at the State University of Iowa, now known as the University of Iowa but which, at least according to Wikipedia, is still legally known by its original name.
