Guess When and Who

I delighted in reading this:

The year of his divorce he moved on again … he stayed in the house of a well-known economist – and was a lonely and idiosyncratic man writing in the cellar …

He … summed up the perversion of centers of learning into high-powered public relations and football in the most stinging commentary ever penned on the American university … while it was still in composition he said that … it would be subtitled, “A Study in Total Depravity.”

That would be Thorstein Veblen writing in 1918.
