A Historical Perspective: The Land Grant Concept and the Community College Philosophy
Pullias, Earl V.
Community College Review, 3, 1, 45-49, Jun 75

The land grant college, which combined lofty idealism with hard practicality, and which established the concept of education for the masses, is a true forerunner of our community colleges today. (DC)
