The University of Oklahoma: A History. Volume I 1890-1917David W. Levy
Reading about the historical context of this institution has helped me understand the role I now play in the larger university community. I have learned about the early days of Norman, its politics and people, and how they came together to transform the prairie into a community of higher learning. David Levy's friendly narrative made the campus come alive with the stories of its past whispering in my ear. I enjoyed reading it so much that I now recommend it to my co-workers and the new students I meet each fall. I look forward to the next volume!
