Clarence Walton as Academic CEO: A Fine Mind on a Fine Line
This essay will be organized around themes available to readers of two books: The Moral Manager, by Clarence C. Walton (xcBallinger, 1988), and The Catholic University of America: A Centennial History, by former CUA provost C. Joseph Nuesse (xcCUA Press, 1990). Walton, widely regarded as the model of a “moral manager,” put his fine mind on the fine line of the presidency of The Catholic University of America in 1969, and served that institution, which is chartered by both the Vatican and the Congress of the United States, and sponsored from the beginning by the American Catholic hierarchy, for 9 years. He was CUA’s tenth president, the first lay person to hold that position.
