STUDY OF A CONTEMPORARY EFFORT TO BUILD A PROTOTYPIC COLLEGE IN SUBURBIA.
KELLY, SAMUEL PATRICK
THE PLANS, DECISIONS, AND EVENTS WHICH TOOK PLACE DURING THE FIRST STAGES OF FOUNDING A NEW COLLEGE IN A CHICAGO SUBURB WERE DETAILED. THE INVESTIGATOR EXPECTED THAT ACCOUNTING FOR ALL THE INITIAL FOUNDING OPERATIONS IN A SINGLE CASE STUDY WOULD REVEAL SPECIFIC PATTERNS OF INTERACTION. THESE COULD THEN BE USED FOR IDENTIFYING MOST OF THE FACTORS ULTIMATELY CRUCIAL TO THE SUCCESS OR FAILURE OF ESTABLISHING A NEW COLLEGE. IMPLICATIONS WERE THAT THE SCOPE OF THE ACTIVITY WAS EXTENSIVE ENOUGH IN ITS INVOLVEMENT OF PERSONS, GROUPS, AGENCIES, PLANS AND PROJECTIONS, AND DIFFERENT RESOURCES OVER A SUFFICIENTLY LONG PERIOD OF TIME (6 YEARS) TO HAVE ENCOMPASSED MOST OF THE MAJOR DECISIONS AND PROBLEMS WHICH INEVITABLY WOULD BE ENCOUNTERED IN OTHER ATTEMPTS WHICH MIGHT BE UNDERTAKEN.
