Editorial Reviews

Review

Although MIT is a world-class research institution, historians rarely include it in the saga of the emergence of the university. Angulo brings MIT’s genesis to life through the intriguing story of its founder's journey from early days as a geologist exploring Virginia through launching his famous university. Historians more comfortable with the liberal arts than ‘useful knowledge’ will especially benefit from a book that takes them into the mind of the man who converted the latter into a unique university mission.

(W. Bruce Leslie, The College at Brockport, State University of New York)

Nicely written, well researched.

(Choice)

MIT's founder, William Barton Rogers, has long needed a scholarly biography. Now, thanks to A.J. Angulo, we have a very good one.

(New England Quarterly)

The research is impressive, and historians of technology will benefit from Angulo's work.

(Bruce Sinclair Technology and Culture)

A.J. Angulo has provided a compelling biography of William Barton Rogers.

(Sean Patrick Adams Virginia Magazine)

Will be of particular interest to historians of education and historians of science and technology... This is a fine history of Rogers's scientific and educational ideals and illuminates a fascinating origin story of MIT in the landscape of early-nineteenth-century Virginia.

(Jamie Pietruska Review of Higher Education)

This book is fascinating reading for anyone interested in the history of science and technology, in the history of higher education and, or course, in MIT itself, and is highly recommended.

(IEEE History Center Newsletter)

A fine history of Rogers's scientific and educational ideals and illuminates a fascinating origin story of MIT in the landscape of early-nineteenth-century Virginia.

(Jamie Pietruska Review of Higher Education)
