A Lost Opportunity in American Education? The Proposal To Merge the University of Chicago and Northwestern University.
Barnes, Sarah V.
American Journal of Education, v107 n4 p289-320 Aug 1999
Describes the attempted 1933 merger between the University of Chicago and Northwestern University, discussing educational and institutional issues exposed during the debate. The universities and their presidents embodied very different philosophies of higher education. Circumstances surrounding the failed merger reveal much about the range of possibilities open to universities during this period in the history of U.S. higher education. (SM)
