A History of the University of Chicago: The First Quarter Century (Paperback)Thomas Wakefield Goodspeed (author)
- We can order this
As Goodspeed shows, once the main roles were cast-in the persons of John D. Rockefeller and William Rainey Harper-the University of Chicago was irrevocably headed for greatness. Without the support of both of these men it would never have become one of the nation's major universities in a mere quarter century. Although Harper died in 1906, his innovative mind and unflagging energy left an indelible mark on the university during the fifteen years of his presidency. The study provides detailed information on the founding of the university, the procurement of funds, the recruitment of faculty, the construction of buildings, student life, and the problems of continuing growth.
