Dan Gediman, Arthur Morgan and This I Believe

Each week Bob is joined by Dan Gediman, the Executive Director of This I Believe, Inc. to discuss one of the original essays from the 1950s radio series. This week’s featured essay is by Arthur Morgan. He was a self-taught civil engineer, as well as an educator, a writer of more than 20 books, and a labor arbiter. Morgan served as the first chairman of the Tennessee Valley Authority, and as president of Antioch College in Ohio. Morgan’s essay speaks to his belief that a purposeful life is best supported by the free inquiry of thought. The Antioch College president cautions that loose living warps thinking to justify itself.
