Chapters in the History of the University of California

In honor of the 125th of the founding of the University of California, the Center for Studies in Higher Education at Berkeley, in cooperation with the Institute of Governemental Studies, takes pleasure in publishing a series of "chapters" in the history of the University. These are designed to illuminate particular problems and periods in the history of U.C., especially its oldest and original campus at Berkeley, and to identify special turning points or features in the "long century" of the University's evolution. Histories are stories meant to be read and enjoyed in their own right, but the editors cannot conceal the hope that readers of these chapters will notice facts and ideas pertinent to the decade that closes our own century and millenium.
