…Ending with a Flourish is a Festschrift—a collection of essays—honoring William A. Jenks, a member of the Washington & Lee Department of History from 1946 until his retirement in 1983. Jenks was the chairman of the department from 1970 to 1983. Dr. Jenks’s reputation in history graduate departments in colleges and universities across the United States is legendary, as some of the most respected and noted scholars of the last 40 years in European history have come out of his classes. These essays offer observations on his style of teaching, his impact on the lives of his students, and on Bill Jenks himself.
