From evening school in 1913 to university status in 1969, Georgia State, an unwanted urban college, went through many difficult times. The problems included misguided recommendations from an elitist General Education Board, inadequate state funding, the Depression, opposition of the University of Georgia, a hostile board of regents, and the segregation crisis, among others. This sympathetic but critical account of GSU challenges some of the traditional interpretations of Georgia’s educational history.
