The University of Wyoming Textbook Investigation: From Controversy to Academic Freedom.
Clark, Tina M.
OAH Magazine of History, v4 n4 p56-60 Spr 1990
This student paper, a first place winner in the 1987 National History Day competition, relates events of the first college textbook controversy in the United States. In 1947, University of Wyoming trustees authorized reviewing textbooks for "subversive tendencies." Faculty and trustees successfully negotiated the controversy, resulting in academic freedom policies still in effect. (CH)
