Baker University Rhodes Scholars

August 16, 2007

Baker University has had four Rhodes Scholars during its 150-year history. They are:


Warren Ortman Ault was a member of the third class of Rhodes Scholars. He returned to Baker after Oxford but soon moved on to Boston University to establish the history department. He remained there for 40 years.


After completing his studies, Frank Baker Bristow began a law partnership in Salina. During his life, he worked as a photographer and journalist before his death in 1968.


Raymond Donald Pruitt continued his studies far beyond Baker and Oxford, leading to his status as a world-renowned cardiologist in the 1960s, including time as director of the Mayo Graduate School of Medicine in Minnesota.


Donald Wayne Taylor was a successful psychologist and educator. He acquired considerable prominence at Yale University, where he became chair of the psychology department in the division of social sciences.
