Michigan Agricultural College: The Evolution of a Land-grant Philosophy, 1855-1925
Vintage photographs profusely illustrate this step back in time, reliving the stirring saga of America's premier land-grant institution, long before it became Michigan State University. Discover how forward-looking legislators, scholars, and administrators found an oak clearing in the midst of central Michigan swampland and there laid the groundwork for what would become one of the world's great universities. From the school's founding in 1855, and for the next seventy years that are discussed in this volume, the institution struggled to find itself and, in the process, helped to invent the notion of what it means to be a university "for the people," a land-grant university.
