Description

Join Brian M. Ingrassia, history professor at West Texas A&M University, as he discusses Iowa's small colleges in the 1920s and 1930s, especially their changing views of intercollegiate athletics. Iowa colleges were on the cutting edge of a midwestern backlash against big-time, commercialized sports; they were also part of a national movement that consciously envisioned small, private colleges as institutions stressing a "liberal arts" curriculum.
