IN 50 YEARS: Tufts professor predicts “moving picture films” will make professors obsolete

Moving_Picture_World_cover_(January_4,_1913)

The Boston Daily Globe reports on the speech yesterday by Professor Edwin C. Bolles of Tufts University, based on the recent inventions which “make moving pictures talk.” He predicted:

Fifty years from today a college faculty will consist essentially of a president, a janitor and a moving-picture man.  . . .  The professors will be able to give their lectures without even entering the class room, the moving picture films will reproduce their voice and every one of their characteristic gestures and postures.

One suspects fifty years may prove too short a span of time for such radical changes in our system of higher education.  Time will tell.
