Elaine Kendall

Peculiar Institutions

“What makes Peculiar Institutions a delight is that Elaine Kendall has approached the subject with a sense of irony as well as a sense of history. Starting with the improbable and occasionally inadvertent founders of the colleges, Kendall describes these very special enclaves from their tentative beginnings through their splendid heydays to the present.”
