Format: Paperback
This book is a classic, and if you are seriously interested in the history of U.S. higher education, you can't get around it. But it's also forty years old. Like most major works on the history of U.S. higher education, it pretends that the North East and Mid West can speak authoritatively for the rest of the country. The book is therefore quite incomplete, which should be taken into account when reading it. Check out John Thelin's 2004 History of American Higher Education, it's much more up-to-date and comprehensive.

Format: Paperback
By around 1910,according to Veywey, the Old Time College had been reinvented and the modern graduate school tacked onto it. The three functions of the new hybrid were to be teaching, research, and public service. This book is as scholarly and as delightful to read as Samuel Eliot Morison's histories of Harvard.
