Oberlin History by Geoffrey Blodgett
Book DescriptionIt was during the tumultuous years of the late 1960s and early 1970s that Geoffrey Blodgett turned his attention to the rich history of Oberlin College and its surrounding northern Ohio community. He understood that well-researched and thoughtfully interpreted history can help a community better understand its mission and values and address its current dilemmas, and his aim for these essays was to help put contemporary campus crises and conflicts into historical context. Although several essays included in "Oberlin History" were originally published in scholarly journals, Blodgett clearly wrote these for an Oberlin audience. Elegantly written and grounded in wide-ranging historical scholarship, Blodgett's work is far more sophisticated than most local and institutional histories.
