Erickson, Ansley T. – History of Education Quarterly, 2016

Kimball, Bruce A.; Johnson, Benjamin Ashby – History of Education Quarterly, 2012
Rather than banking enormous gifts, Harvard University built its wealth by adhering to a coherent strategy that gradually became the common sense--the prevailing ideology--of how to build and maintain the wealth of private universities.

Laats, Adam – History of Education Quarterly, 2012
In this article, the author focuses on the Ku Klux Klan of the 1920s and educational reform.

Scribner, Campbell F. – History of Education Quarterly, 2012
The launch of "Sputnik" in 1957 sparked a crisis in American education.
