The People's College, the Mechanics' Mutual Protection and the Agricultural College Act.
Lang, Daniel W.
History of Education Quarterly, v18 n3 p295-321 Fall 1978
Traces the history of the People's College in central New York from inception (1853) to dissolution (1869). Notes its significance in relation to the Agricultural College Act (1862). Contends that the tension between reformers interested solely in mechanical education and those who did not wish to abandon the classical curriculum led to the failure of the College. (KC)
