Overview

"T. Marshall Hahn, Jr., became president of Virginia Polytechnic Institute in 1962. By the time he left twelve years later, the school had become a university. No longer a small military school that emphasized agriculture and engineering for white-male undergraduates, Virginia Technical Institute and State University had become a multiracial, coeducational research university with a thriving college of arts and sciences as well as burgeoning graduate programs." Bringing together the biography of a man and the history of an institution through a dozen years of transformation, Strother and Wallenstein discuss the school's tremendous growth in sheer numbers of faculty and students, the increased enrollment of female and nonwhite students, and the increased emphasis on intercollegiate athletics.
