"This is a book for the record, one every University of Kansas alumnus should own."--Manhattan Mercury

"For those who want to know how a university was born, how it survived and thrived on the prairie, how the politicians and the professors interacted, how educational fads congealed into clich�s, how the chancellors postured, orated, and appealed, how the teachers practiced mutual karate and how a preparatory academy became an institution of distinction, this is the book."--Salina Journal

"Traces virtually every aspect of the school's growth during its first century. Sports, pranks, feuds, social organization, and campus politics are included."--Kansas City Star

"An honest and fascinating portrait of KU's first century. Most of the university's great names march across its pages, and refreshingly, Griffin presents them without a cosmetic fa�ade."--Lawrence Journal-World

"To this book Griffin brings the gifts of clear prose, mastery of vast sources, detachment, and a disarming skepticism about his subject. Above all, he is candid."--Chronicle of Higher Education

"A monumental history."--Reviews in American History

"Highly recommended."--History: Reviews of New Books
