The Land-Grant Idea in American Higher Education: A Guide to Information Sources.
Songe, Alice H.
Sources of information on the origin and development of the land-grant university in America and on the histories and contributions of these schools that were created and maintained by federal aid are listed. This bibliography of 600 entries also includes sources of information on the effectiveness of the federal land-grant program, on the relationship of the federal government to these schools, on the role of the Afro-American land-grant institutions in providing higher education for Black Americans, and on the legislative history of the Morrill Act of 1862. To provide background studies for the social origins of the land-grant idea and development of the land-grant schools, general histories of American higher education are included as well as general histories of the American people. Resource materials consist of books, monographs, journal articles, U.S. government publications, Congressional documents, doctoral dissertations and masters' theses. The period covered ranges from the middle of the nineteenth century through the summer of 1979. A subject index and a list of the land-grant colleges and universities by state are included. (SW)
