The American College President, 1636-1989: A Critical Review and Bibliography


Sontz's bibliography is the first work on this topic in 30 years. It includes biographical material on educators that has become available only during the past three decades as well as materials relevant to colonial and 19th-century academic presidencies. The "Review Essay" critically reviews the past and current role of the president and changes in function and perception from 1636 to 1988. Source materials are accessible and relevant; only those presidential writings that pertain directly to issues of education and academic governance are cited.
