Sol Gittleman, author of An Accidental Triumph, to speak at library tomorrow


Special to the News, Nov. 7, 2023


WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 7:00—8:00 PM, Large Meeting Room, Winchester Public Library


Sol Gittleman, author and Professor Emeritus at Tufts University, will discuss his book An Accidental Triumph: The Improbable History of American Higher Education.

Hardly a day passes without some reference to the decline of American colleges and universities. America has created, mostly by accident, a higher education enterprise unlike any in the world. In the years after WWII, American faculty have come to dominate the Nobel Prizes, while millions of international students seek a place on any American campus. So, what are we: a higher education disaster, or the envy of the world? The answer is: both. How did this happen?
