From 1886 to 1892, William Charles Roberts served as the president of Lake Forest University (now Lake Forest College), a school located a short distance from Lake Michigan. His official inauguration took place on June 22, 1887. Johnson, a professor at Chicago’s McCormick Theological Seminary and a member of Lake Forest’s Board of Trustees, delivered the “charge,” which was later published in Addresses Delivered at the Inauguration of Rev. William C. Roberts, D.D, LL.D. as President of the Lake Forest University. June 22, 1887 (Chicago: Geo K. Hazlitt & Co., 1887). The charge was delivered outside Appalachia; it is included in the Library to help paint a complete picture of Johnson’s oratory.
