This chapter focuses on the period of A. Sidney Lovett's retirement as university chaplain. Men whom the president trusted were lobbying Bill Coffin. Philosopher Paul Weiss, the first tenured Jew on the Yale faculty, whom Yale President A. Whitney Griswold had asked to listen for “large rumblings from the faculty,” reported that “the most diverse types say that the right man to get as Chaplain is William Coffin....apparently a large number of faculty, religious and non-religious, Christian and otherwise, think that Coffin is the man. I think so too.” Impressed, Griswold scribbled a note to his secretary: “Pls. ack. by phone & say I'd like to hear more when I get back.”
