An Anglo-American Experiment; A Record of an Experiment in Co-operation Between ... the University of Hull, England, and the ... School of Liberal and Applied Studies of the University of Rochester, 1963-67, New York.
The main aim of this 1963-67 exchange program was to try, under the auspices of both a British and an American university (Hull and Rochester, New York,) to develop relations between the two communities involved, and to enable participants to become better acquainted with the host country than would be possible through the usual kind of vacation visit. Five two-week University of Rochester summer schools, attended by a total of 472 Britishers of widely varied ages and occupations, were the central part of this experiment. Lectures, discussion, industrial visits, and local tours were the principal activities, although the itineraries and program themes varied from year to year. In particular, British participants tended to withhold criticism and to report increased knowledge and appreciation of many aspects of life and work in the United States. A visit to Hull by two Negro leaders from Rochester, and the attendance of 24 Americans at an Anglo-American summer school in 1966, were among the other highlights of the exchange program.
