Higher Education and World War II. IHE Perspectives.
The January 1994 issue of "The Annals" of the American Academy of Political and Social Science provides an overview of thought and discussion concerning the role of colleges and universities during World War II and in the postwar era. Edited by T. R. McConnell and Malcolm Willey, the issue contained articles by educators, most of whom became more well known after the War. Published 6 months before "D-Day" and the enactment of the G.I. Bill, the articles show the seriousness of planning for the readjustments that would be needed after the war. The authors were well informed of the mistakes made after World War I, and they were confident that the United States had learned from these mistakes. The articles reflect concern for the planning necessary to accommodate the returning servicemen who would seek additional education. Taken together, these essays in this issue show remarkable foresight. (SLD)
