Three Centuries of Harvard, 1636-1936

Three Centuries of Harvard, 1636-1936

Description

This one-volume history of Harvard is not so much a summary of Samuel Eliot Morison's monumental work [The Tercentennial History of Harvard College and University, 1636-1936] as it is an entirely fresh handling of his vast material.

With a mind saturated in the lore and tradition at his command, Professor Morison has sat down to tell the whole story of Harvard informally and briefly. Documentation and all the learned apparatus of scholarly research are therefore omitted; but the same genial humor, the same ability to see the human implications of past events, that characterize his larger, multi-volume series on Harvard are preserved in this. The result is a marvelously entertaining volume, the history of Harvard that everyone has been waiting for, a model of vitalized historical writing.
