The papers in this document present three themes: history of higher education; educational thought; and education and reform. "The University of Illinois' Long Search for a Permanent Campus in Chicago, 1946-1963: The Relationship between the Politics of Influence and the Conflicting Images of an Urban University" (G. A. Sprague) begins part 1 and describes the university's site selection, the mission of the Chicago branch, the concerns from other universities, and the lack of political support. "Between Two Worlds: The Residential College at the University of Michigan" (M. C. Hathaway) presents the four periods of the Residential College's history. "Maroon Farewell: The Abolition of Intercollegiate Football at the University of Chicago" (S. S. Cohen) tells of the team's final games and the press coverage of its demise. Part 2 begins with "William Rainey Harper: Christian Individualism and the University of Chicago" (D. B. Owen) which tries to uncover Harper's philosophy and how he applied it to the University. "Deschooling Revisited: An Examination of Ivan Illich's Social Thought" (T. Reagan) distinguishes between the medieval ideal of human society and New Liberalism and examines how Illich's social theory reflected the ideal in his critique of schooling. "John Lancaster Spalding: The Horace Mann of Catholic Education" (R. N. Barger) describes Spalding's involvement in establishing Illinois' parochial schools, the Catholic Educational Exhibit, the Baltimore Cathecism, The Catholic University of America, and the Institute of Pedagogy. Part 3 begins with "The WCTU and Education: Canadian-American Illustrations" (N. M. Sheehan) that describes the American Women's Christian Temperance Union's public school arm, the Department of Scientific Temperance Instruction, and compares its efforts to include the teaching of temperance through textbooks, and its ultimate failure, to similar efforts in Canada. "The Matter of Means: The Campaign and Election for the New York Free Academy, 1846-1847" (J. Mirel) describes the political controversy over the establishment of the Free Academy. "A Note on the Occupational Backgrounds of Public High School Students Prior to 1940" (D. L. Angus) reviews the 19th and early 20th century literature written about parental occupations. The conference program, business meeting's minutes, and attendance are included. (DJC)
