Important observations, Dan. Do you think this sort of case differs deeply from the case of Drexel's new president? Fry obviously has a strong background in academic management, and I don't recall hearing complaints about his time as president of Franklin and Marshall from faculty (though I didn't pay close attention, either), and my recollection is that he was ABD in History, so he does have some academic background, too, though I do recall that, when he was set to move from Penn to Franklin and Marshall, there was some worry about having a non-PhD/Scholar as the president there. (My own reaction is to generally be pretty skeptical of such cases, but that in the case of Fry it seems that he's both proven himself able to deal with the challenges and has enough scholarly background to understand that aspect of the university.)
