Lancaster, Pennsylvania, 1968. First Edition. 
Octavo, blue boards & grey cloth (hardcover), 45 pp. Fine. From Foreword: This is the story of two early American colleges which became one, and combined in their union some of the most significant educational philosophies of the western world. It is a story of ideas and men -- the really great ideas which made the liberal arts college distinctly characteristic on the American scene, as unique as the New England town meeting or the clipper ship; and truly outstanding men who were serious scholars, inspiring teachers, and universal humanists in their interests and attainments. It is a story of constant change from 1787 to the present, as new challenges and new problems brought new methods and new experiments and new opportunities. But it is also a record of consistent confidence in an ideal, for from the very first year of its founding, nothing was permitted to divert this College from constant emphasis on the fundamental philosophies which had brought it into being...”
