A School for the People tells the story of OSU's nearly 150 years as a land grant institution through more than 500 photographs, maps, documents, and extensive captions. In-depth chapters focus on themes such as campus development, the growth of academics, the evolution of research as a major focus of the university, campus life and organizations, and, of course, athletics. A capsule history includes many of the iconic photographs associated with the university.

As one of the first colleges and universities to offer photography as part of its curriculum in the early 1890s, OSU is well documented visually. Most of those photographic treasures have made their way into the holdings of the Special Collections& Archives Research Center at OSU's Valley Library. Gleaned from hundreds of thousands of images at the Center, many of the photos included here have never before been seen by the general public.

Written by a longtime archivist at OSU's Special Collections & Archives Research Center, A School for the People tells the full, dynamic story of this multi-faceted and living university, documenting the inevitable ups and downs of the institution. Overflowing with visual riches, it will appeal to OSU alumni, faculty and staff, and anyone with an interest in the history of higher education in Oregon or land grant institutions generally

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Lawrence Landis has written a very appealing book that features a wide array of photographs that illustrate a great many themes in the history of Oregon State University (OSU). Landis has served as an archivist for the university since 1991, and his long connection with Oregon State is reflected in his careful selection of images as well as his appreciation for the university's rich history...A School for the People will rank high in the genre of university and college histories in the Pacific Northwest. Both Larry Landis and the Oregon State University Press should be commended."

-Dale E. Soden, Pacific Northwest Quarterly
