I'm late in posting this but University Archives assisted the Howard-Tilton Memorial Library in sharing a bit of Tulane's history with staff members last week when it gave away brand new copies of Clarence Mohr & Joseph Gordon's book, "Tulane: The Emergence of A Modern University, 1945-1980" (published in 2001) during Professional Development Da. Stop by the Professional Development Day in the LBC and pick up some goodies from the library including copies of the book Tulane: The Emergence of a Modern University, 1945-1980.

Tulane is the story of a southern school striving for national recognition in the post–World War II era of American research universities. Clarence L. Mohr and Joseph E. Gordon pre-sent a candid, in-depth treatment of the 150-year-old New Orleans institution during this transformative period, when it grappled with such pervasive issues as federal and private funding; academic freedom; an enrollment surge set in motion by the GI Bill and sustained by the postwar “baby boom”; the cold war; desegregation; the antiwar, civil rights, and student-power movements; expanding intercollegiate athletics; censorship; the clash between liberal and utilitarian conceptions of higher learning; revision of curricular content; and the role of universities as platforms for social criticism―all of which together profoundly altered the mission of American higher learning. In addition to these external forces, the authors examine the many individuals―administrators, professors, and students―whose responses in both calm and crises shaped the evolution of Tulane’s unique academic, physical, and demographic design.

Like its regional peers in the 1950s and 1960s, Tulane faced the challenge of transcending its past without repudiating traditions of lasting value. From a loose confederation of locally oriented undergraduate and professional schools, it developed into a nationally focused research university serving a diverse student body selected through rigorous admissions standards. Its journey over the past half century should remind those who support, study, or teach in American universities that their own institutions during that period have in a very real sense made history as well.

This is a wonderful book for any Tulane alumnus. The condition of the copy is excellent and it was shipped quickly. It was great fun to read about my bosses, Dr. J.C Morris and Dr. Robert Nieset, who did so much for me and the university.

Clarence Mohr and Joseph Gordon have done a splendid job in describing the recent history of Tulane University, the school I attended from 1965 until 1967 and again from 1971 until 1976, at which time I graduated. On the overall, they succeeded in making Tulane become alive, and how it developed since World War II. Of course, I could well relive my own experiences at Tulane, both as a student and a library staffer which I was from 1972 until 1979. As I read this book, I vividly remembered several events that I witnessed as I attended Tulane and also worked for that school. Names of teachers I had at Tulane appear in the book, and I remember some of these teachers very well, as I have learned a lot from them. The pictures help a lot in enhancing these memories I have. I have many fond memories of Tulane, and to this very day enjoy going back to the campus. And reading that book made me re-live Tulane, too.
