Abstract

The land-grant university system was established as an institutional mechanism to influence and control the agenda of scientists within a revolutionary system of higher education. It was explicitly anti -elitist-an experiment in democracy-as compared to the dominant British and European models of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. The land-grants were to be better than Harvard and Yale under the values of democratic America- they now may be just as bad.
