KIRKUS REVIEW

Any football fan knows the Aggies are one of the nation's perennial top elevens, and here's the story of the college that goes with the team. Established immediately after the Civil War under the land-grant act of Congress, The Texas Agricultural and Mechanical College grew from a collection of overcrowded buildings where students slept in hallways to an institution that owns a better than 5,000-acre campus, and a string of engineering grads who've been responsible for most of Texas' opulent network of state highways. Sketches of noted alumni, a chronology of the college, lists of college officials, degrees, enrollment, and athletic greats past and present make this a good Christmas gift for the region.
