Preface for volume 58

Robert G. Sewell


The current issue, while not technically a special issue, contains interrelated articles. There are two articles on World War II, one concerning changes that WWII brought to Rutgers and by implication, to American higher education in general, and another representing Rutgers’ WWII Oral History Project. The author of the former article, Richard P. McCormick, Rutgers history professor emeritus, is profiled in a third article that is based on an extensive interview with him. The final piece in this volume is on the nineteenth-century socialist, Robert Blatchford, by a former editor of The Journal, John W. Osborne, who has donated several books to the Rutgers Libraries by and about Blatchford.
