The Study of the History of Art in the Colleges and Universities of the United States (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from The Study of the History of Art in the Colleges and Universities of the United States The present report on the Study of the History of Art in Ameri can institutions oi learning assumes that it will be of interest largely to those who already realize the urgent necessity of Art History in our Colleges and Universities and are themselves actively in sym pathy with its advancement. It is hoped, however, that the infor mation here gathered may also be of some value in libraries and colleges where those who contemplate further work in the History of Art may find out the nature and extent of the courses offered by the Colleges and Universities, and thereby choose the place where they will carry on their advanced study. The material has been gathered from the catalogues of the lead ing Colleges and Universities and from circulars, asking specific in formation, sent to four hundred institutions. All those Colleges and Universities not offering any work in the subject have been omitted, save the ones that have more than one thousand students in attendance. These have been included in order that it may be seen how many large Universities and Colleges are failing to meet an educational responsibility. Although many small Colleges have failed to remail the circular asking for information, it will not be far wrong to assume that of the four hundred institutions listed in the World's Almanac for 1911 the following list of ninety-five Colleges and Universities offering Art courses is nearly complete and may, therefore, be used for certain generalizations.
