History of Higher Education Annual, v3 1983
Historical developments in higher education are considered in six articles. Topics include: evangelism at Harvard University in the early 1740s; the New Haven scholars of the 1860s and 1870s and the adaptation of scholarly approaches usually associated with the modern university to secure the religious ends associated with the old-time college; the founding of the Wellesley College community and the concept of community as it relates to the development of women's higher education around 1875; the establishment of a university college in a small Australian country town in 1938; the development of college teaching as a profession; and the evolution of Hebrew University in Israel. Titles and authors of the articles are as follows: "Henry Flynt and the Great Awakening at Harvard College (1741-1744)" (Edward T. Dunn); "Between the Old-Time College and the Modern University: Noah Porter and the New Haven Scholars" (Louise L. Stevenson); "Incipit Vita Nuova: Founding Ideals of the Wellesley College Community" (Patricia Palmieri); "Establishing a University in a Country Town: An Australian Case" (Bruce Mitchell); "From Tutor to Specialized Scholar: Academic Professionalization in Eighteenth and Nineteenth Century America" (Martin Finkelstein); and "Vision and Fulfillment: The Evolution of the Hebrew University, 1901-1950" (Yaacov Iram).
