THE MIAMI YEARS by Walter Havighurst


Email this review


On the occasion of the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary of Miami University, Walter Havinghurst has set down the history of this school, tracing it from its modest beginnings, a series of log houses in Ohio to its present status, a university with residence facilities which can house over six-thousand students. Non-sectarian, but largely predicated on the idea that religion is at the root of higher truth, Miami prides itself on being an ""inexpensive college..offering a simple and self-contained social life and a program of liberal interests and conservative practices, regarding intellectual breadth and liberation as the best things it can give its students."" An honest, if somewhat pedestrian appraisal, primarily of interest to those who are in some way associated with the school.
