This is the College of Wooster Index from 1946. At the beginning of the Index is a dedication to the "Rock of Ages." The dedication reads, "'Rock of Ages'...age of dreams...dreams of wisdom...In memoriam to those who through the ages dream of wisdom and consecrate themselves to it, we pledge ourselves. Under crosses on Iwo Jima and in the heart of France lie the 'might have beens'; in the classrooms of Wooster sits the future for which they sacrificed. To take up their crosses, to laden them with intellect and culture, to adorn them with integrity and virtue is our duty and privilege. It is to them, the youth who died, yearning for knowledge, striving for glory, that we are eternally indebted. Their names and deeds are engraved on our hearts; their hopes and dreams are forever embodied in our 'Rock of Ages.'" Then, there are photographs of the academic buildings on campus. After this, there is a section dedicated to the faculty of Wooster. There is also sections of portraits of students for each class, and a collection of photographs of student life and extracurriculars on campus. The Index ends with a student directory and advertisements from businesses around Wooster.
