The story of the great transition of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill from a good small college in 1900 to a full-statured modern state university in 1930, with a solid claim to leadership in southern higher education, is told by a man who was an on-the-spot witness and in many ways a major participant as well.

Originally published in 1957.
