Grinnell College in the nineteenth century : from salvation to service by Joseph Frazier Wall( Book )

2 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 69 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this most engaging history of one of America's premier liberal arts colleges, Wall captures far more than the formation and growth of Grinnell College, Iowa. It is also a story about organized religion and religious values in nineteenth-century America, about westward expansion across the Mississippi River, and about town building on the prairies. Strong personalities drive the early college: Leonard and Sarah Parker, George F. Magoun, George Herron, Carrie Rand, Martha Foote Crowe, and above all, George Augustus Gates. Wall's quotations from personal letters and college minutes illuminate their backgrounds, motivations, and aspirations. The book was originally commissioned by President George Drake as a sesquicentennial history of the college. This volume contains the story Wall had completed when he died. Mrs Bea Wall finished her husband's last chapter

The WPA Guide to 1930s Iowa is a panorama of the Hawkeye State as it was during the Great Depression, but it nevertheless finds much to celebrate in the heartland of America. Nearly three dozen essays highlight Iowa's demography, economy, and culture, but the heart of the book is a detailed traveler's guide, organized as seventeen different tours that direct the reader to communities of particular social and historical interest throughout the state. Rarely has so much information about a place been gathered in a single volume. This unique book is a special invitation to share in the richness and diversity of Iowa and its people
