Excerpt from University of Pennsylvania, 1740-1893: The History of the University and Its Present Work The Wharton School and the School of American His tory represent each a new idea in American education. The former was founded as an experiment in the education of busi ness men, and as a preliminary to the law, journalism or public life and has eminently justified the foresight of its founder. It recognizes the need for a broader preparation than has usually been given in the fields just mentioned, especially that of gen eral business. The quality of work done in the school is best shown in two volumes, one on The Development of American Industries, prepared and published by the Class of 1891, and the valuable work on Philadelphia and its Government, which has just been published by the Class of 1893. The school's success is also seen in the places held by its graduates, and the high praise accorded it by such a body as the American Bankers' Association. The special Work of the school is done in the Junior and Senior years. An excellent library in economics, history, and public law is owned by the school.
