The Land-Grant Movement in American Higher Education. An Historical Bibliography of the Land-Grant Movement and the Individual Land-Grant Institutions.
Songe, Alice H.
Following the Morrill Act of 1862, the Land-Grant institutions developed, keeping pace with the industrial, social and economic changes in our national life. It is the purpose of this bibliography to present sources containing information on this development, through general references and histories of the individual Land-Grant institutions. The items listed are in two parts. The first deals with the history of the Morrill Act of 1862 and the Land-Grant movement in American higher education. The second part provides information on the Land-Grant colleges and universities, not only as individual institutions but also as part of the growth of higher education in their separate states. The items were published between 1858 and 1962, and should prove useful to those who wish to survey these historical facts. (Author/JMF)
