This lively history of Yale traces the development of the college from its founding in 1701 by a small group of Puritan clergymen intent on preserving the purity of the faith in Connecticut, to its survival in the eighteenth century as a center for intellectual life, to its expansion in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries as a major international university.
