“Arriving at one goal is the starting point of another.”
–John Dewey

The University of Vermont, in Burlington, is the home of a portrait of John Dewey, as well as two-story high stained glass windows that are stunning and worth a stop. You can read about it at http://www.uvm.edu/~wlipke/artuvm/deweylounge.php. Burlington has a population of approximately 42,000 residents and the University of Vermont has approximately 11,000 undergraduate students.

Find out information on John Dewey, philosopher and writer of over 300 books, by visiting www.biography.com. Many of his books are published by Yale University Press. (He did not create the Dewey Decimal system, which was invented by Melvil Dewey.)

Take a look at the stained glass windows, notice the artistic details and think about the engineering precision needed to create them.

The University of Vermont is the second stop on our Vermont Trail!
