POSTWAR CORNELL

Brad Edmondson's new book brings to life the crisis that re-made American higher education in the years after World War II. Enrollment at Cornell University increased 40 percent between May and October 1946, and most of the new students were war veterans. Postwar Cornell takes readers on "a marvelous journey back in time," according to foreword author Isaac Kramnick, "to the era when present-day Cornell was born." The book combines the first-person recollections of 67 Cornell alumni with contemporary letters, articles, and diary entries from 1944 to 1952. The material is grouped by themes and narration is kept to a minimum, allowing the story to be told in the voices of those who lived it.
