About this Item

ix, [5], 267, [5] p. 25 cm. Illustrations, Portraits. Footntoes. Bibliographical Essay. Index. Mark Hopkins (February 4, 1802 June 17, 1887) was president of Williams College from 1836 to 1872. An epigram-widely attributed to President James A. Garfield, a student of Hopkins-defined an ideal college as "Mark Hopkins on one end of a log and a student on the other". Excerpts from a 2013 on-line obituary: "Fred served the college in so many ways. Most notably, few faculty in the past half century have had more of a hand in the development of the Williams curriculum than did Fred, including with the introduction of what we now call the American studies program and of African-American history. Fred married his love of American history and love of Williams to write pioneering works in the history of higher education. His Ph.D. thesis at Yale became Mark Hopkins and The Log, an insightful look at not just Williams, but of colleges and universities in general, and of the social and political history of the nineteenth century." Very good. No dust jacket. Signed by author. Signed and dated on fep. Pencil erasure residue on fep. Cover and pages have slight wear and soiling. Bookseller Inventory # 70015
