Regional/History

An engaging look at the University's past fifty years, in celebration of its sesquicentennial.

The University of Minnesota is unique for its combination of land grant mission and research focus, urban and rural campuses, the size of its student body, and the breadth of its programs, from agricultural extension through organ transplants. This history of the University's past fifty years is a narrative account of the challenges and triumphs that have faced Minnesota's premier institution of higher learning.

Through recollections by celebrated alumni such as Garrison Keillor, Walter Mondale, and Eric Sevareid; interviews with students, faculty, and high-ranking administrators such as former president Nils Hasselmo and current president Mark G. Yudof; and stories of daily life found in the Minnesota Daily and other University publications, Stanford Lehmberg and Ann M. Pflaum offer an overview of the post-World War II campus, the social activism of the late 1960s and early 1970s, and the athletic, academic, outreach, and research achievements, as well as the controversies and economic challenges, that have characterized the past twenty years. This rich chronicle will be of interest to anyone who wishes to increase their understanding of the University's varied and intriguing recent past.

Stanford Lehmberg is professor emeritus and former chair of the history department at the University of Minnesota. Ann M. Pflaum is the University's sesquicentennial historian.
