History of Higher Education Annual, v10 1990
This annual compilation contains six papers depicting a complex array of relationships which have historically existed between the higher education academy and the community. These relationships reveal mutual involvement, dependence, support, and conflict. In "The University of Padua 1405-1600: A Success Story," (Paul F. Grendler) the beneficial, cooperative relationships between the Venetian ruling class and the university are revealed. Next, "When Professors Had Servants: Prestige, Pay, and Professionalism, 1860-1917" (W. Bruce Leslie), looks at turn of the century town-gown relations at four American colleges. The development of municipal higher education and female education are addressed in "Subway Scholars at Concrete Campuses: Daughters of Jewish Immigrants Prepare for the Teaching Profession, New York City, 1920-1940" (Ruth Jacknow Markowitz). A case of town-gown conflict in the 1930s is examined in "Politics, Science, and Education in New Mexico: The Racial-Attitudes Survey of 1933" (Lynne Marie Getz). In "The Gender Effect: The Early Curricula of Beloit College and Rockford Female Seminary" Lucy Townsend shows how a community intervened when a college board of trustees failed to live up to its mission. The last paper, "Toward a Political History of American Foundations" (David C. Hammack) reviews three books which question the claim that philanthropic foundations represent community interests to universities and colleges. (GLR)
