This beautifully illustrated history of Northwestern University is now available in an updated edition. Published originally in 2000 in celebration of the sesquicentennial tribute, the book now includes a new chapter covering the years of Henry Bienen's presidency and a new foreword by the current president, Morton Schapiro. From the school's earliest daysa time of precarious financial conditions, a lack of students, and the struggle of building a campus in the wilderness that became Evanstonto the current era, with a leading endowment, top students, and three thriving campuses, the book chronicles Northwestern's fascinating history, from the effort to found "an institution of the highest order" to the rise of a modern research university. With historical and contemporary photos, this entertaining history brings to life the wonderful stories of the students, faculty, and alumni who have made Northwestern a world-class institution.
