Four articles and two review papers are presented on themes relating to educational leadership within institutions, organizations, and networks and to the development and promulgation of ideas within academic disciplines. Three of the articles explore the opportunity structures that promoted the rise of two college presidents and one powerful educational administrator: (1) M. Carey Thomas in "'Putting a Woman in Sole Power': The Presidential Succession at Bryn Mawr College, 1892-1894" (Cynthia Brown); (2) Arthur Morgan in "'Forcing Them to Be Free': Antioch College and Progressive Education in the 1920s" (Judith Sealander); and (3) Abraham Flexner in "Abraham Flexner and the Politics of Educational Reform" (Steven Wheatley). A fourth article, "Exile and Return: Political Science in the Context of (West-) German University Development from Weimar to Bonn" (Rainer Eisfeld), focuses on the New Deal, wartime, and postwar experiences of German emigre intellectuals to the United States. The two essay reviews are: "Mixed Blessings: Science and Specialization in American Medical Education" (Ellen More) and "Lawrence Cremin on American Higher Education: A Review Essay" (James McLachlan).
