This lively history of Yale traces the development of the college from its founding in 1701 by a small group of Puritan clergymen intent on preserving the purity of the faith in Connecticut, to its survival in the eighteenth century as a center for intellectual life, to its expansion in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries as a major international university.

 

"For tasting one of the well-springs of a peculiarly American version of higher learning, Yale: A History is clearly to be recommended to readers anywhere. It will be read with profit as well as enjoyment."β€”Times Higher Education Supplement

 

"Kelley sustains [his] theme well and reconstructs the institutional development of Yale with considerable skill and empathy. . . . A very informative book."β€”Journal of American History

 

"Useful both for those primarily interested in Yale as an institution and for students of the history of higher education generally."β€”The Historian

 

"A readable, accurate synthesis of Yale's internal history, fully comparable to the best single-volume treatments of other major universities."β€”Times Literary Supplement

 

Brooks Mather Kelley, a research affiliate in history at Yale University, has also held numerous other positions there, including university archivist and curator of historical manuscripts.
