Kammen, Michael
History Teacher, v17 n1 p61-87 Nov 1983
In 1881, Tyler was invited to Cornell to fill the first professorship of U.S. history created at any American university. That episode provides the opportunity to examine history teaching in nineteenth century America, the origins of the historical profession, the Anglo-American cultural context that shaped Tyler's outlook, and his achievements.
