This book is a history of the University of Virginia from its beginnings until 1975. Despite the fact that the author seems to have gleaned most of his information from student newspapers and official correspondence (rather than interviews, historical texts, etc.), it gives a good sense of the university during the time that it covers.

However, as far as history books go, this book is not very well written. In particular, this book lacks an engaging narrative structure that might help the outside
Not Wills' best.
