qThis is a major piece of work going far beyond California in interest, and you cannot doubt that I am an ardent supporter. Truly, on this occasion we can say that we will never see his like again.q--John Kenneth Galbraith, professor emeritus Harvard University qIn this account of his role in shaping the 'private' life of the University of California --its internal, academic, and administrative side-- Clark Kerr has given us much more than a witty, insightful, down-to-earth history of the University of California in its most active growth phase; he has provided an extraordinary chapter in the history of higher education in this country. But then, what else would one expect from one of the wisest and most courageous educational leaders of our time?q--William G. Bowen, President of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, President Emeritus of Princeton University qThis book not only contains the memoirs of one of the greatest university presidents of the 20th century, it also gives an illuminating, first-hand account of what is surely the century's most spectacular achievement in higher education: the rise of the University of California system.q--Derek Bok, President Emeritus of Harvard University qThis is a wonderful book at many different levels. . ..Clark Kerr --statesman, scholar, and thoughtful citizen of the academic commonwealth -- brings to his writing the modesty, generosity, commitment to principle and openness to many points of view, the humane values and sense of mission that have always marked his extraordinary leadership.q -- Hanna Holborn Gray, President Emeritus of The University of ChicagoUniversity of Illinois: cultural programs, 121; faculty salaries, 388; rankings, 57-58 , 78, 368-69, 406, 407 University of Kansas, Murphy and, 208, ...
