I picked up The Literature of American History: A Bibliographical Guide (1902, reprinted 1966) and was skimming through the section on “Educational History,” and came across these two titles (grabbed screen shots at Archive dot org).
Here’s the blurb in The Literature of American History:
Together these two works, which are really companions, present a full view of Oberlin history for it first half century. The first one presents the colony and the college in their mutual relations particularly, while the jubilee addresses deal almost wholly with prominent phases of college work and influence. The books are strongly marked by Oberlin thought and feeling.p333
The founding of Oberlin is an interesting story. You can read or check out The Colony and the College at Archive.
THE OBERLIN COVENANT
Lamenting the degeneracy of the Church and the deplorable condition of our perishing world..
Feels like the folks to whom the Covenant is entrusted today have fallen down on their jobs, doesn’t it?
I blogged about the author of The Literature of American History previously. Interesting story.
