KIRKUS REVIEW

The story of the college that boasts one of America's top football teams, Perry's book takes the history of Texas Agricultural and Mechanical College from its beginning just after the Civil War under the land-grant act of Congress, through its growth from a collection of overcrowded buildings to an institution that owns a more than 5,000 acre campus, and has produced engineers responsible for most of Texas' opulent network of state highways. Sketches of noted alumni, a chronology of the college among other features, make this a good book for the region.
