Great personalities of the period included Sir Thomas More, Martin Luther, the religious genius-hero and the world's supreme poet and playwright, William Shakespeare. "It was an age of doubting and hesitation," said Daniel L. Martino, WSC chairman of cultural affairs. "Spurred on by the doubts, the reformation and the new faith, Protestantism, set about smashing the graven images of Roman Catholicism," he said. "To quote New York University President James M. Hester, many educators in that state have characterized the Civilization films as the most effective use of motion pictures for educational purposes they have ever seen," Mr. Martino added. Lord Kenneth Clark of Saltwood, England, is creator, author and narrator of the series.

|Description||Weber's current student newspaper, the Signpost, first appeared on September 29, 1937. For two years prior to that time, campus news was disseminated via announcements posted on a bulletin board known as the "Signpost". As a result, the masthead of the first issue of the paper itself featured a rudimentary wooden sign with the title spelled out in rustic-looking letters. Over the years the paper has been published continuously, though the look, size and style has changed several times.|
