The Outreach University. A Case History in the Public Relationships of Higher Education, University of Wisconsin Extension, 1885-1975.
The gradual adjustment of the American University to the American environment has created a heightened awareness of the university as a public institution, a community of citizens rather than a community of scholars. This is the case study of the University of Wisconsin and its nationally prominent extension division, established in 1907. The division's history is traced from its beginning through the depression, world war, and recent years, and issues and problems are discussed from the public relations point of view of the university.
