In Service to America...165 Years of Career & Professional Education

The Imagine America Foundation (IAF) offers a .pdf of In Service to America: Celebrating 165 Years of Career and Professional Education.  Readers will find an interesting overview of the history of the career college sector.  While the focus is on the associations created to represent the institutions, the text and historical photographs explore changes and growth in the sector following emergence of the first private career school founded in 1841.  This book builds on a previous history written by George J. Petrello and published in 1988.
