Thousand of books, monographs, proceedings, and articles have been published concerning colleges and universities in the United States. As guides to his extensive literature, many bibliographies in the field of higher education in general, or special aspects of it, have been prepared. These vary greatly in comprehensiveness, in recency, and in usefulness. Few of them include informative annotations. None of them covers satisfactorily the office of the president--the prestige office of the American college and university world. The purpose of this bibliography is to supply this lack of information for the more than 2,000 institutions of higher education in the country, each of which has a chief administrative officer, usually designated as "president." Information concerning almost 700 publications in this restricted but important field, published during the 20th century, will be found in the present bibliography. This bulletin presents the first part of a two-part volume. It contains the following sections: (1) Foreword; (2) Introduction; (3) Periodicals Cited; (4) Chapter I: Reference; (5) Chapter II: General and Composite; (6) Chapter III: Selection and Qualifications; and (7) Chapter IV: Personal Factors. (Contains 1 footnote.) [Due to its size, this volume has been processed as two separate parts. The first part includes the foreword through Chapter IV. The second part includes Chapter V through the index. The cover page and table of contents are repeated in the second part. For the other part of this volume, see "Chapter V - Index" (ED544035). Best copy available has been provided.]
