Donald Youel, in Mankato State College - An Interpretative Essay, commented on the development of this institution for its first one hundred years. He did not chronicle each event, but rather provided the reader with an understanding of what happened and what it meant for the College and for society. He organized this essay from different perspectives: "the developing program, the enrollment, students, the state governing board, administration and faculty." He made the point well that "Mankato's story is a representative instance of America's dream that opportunity means, fundamentally, educational opportunity."
Mankato State University, the Second Century - the First Twenty-Five Years, is also an interpretative essay which is written from similar perspectives. The purpose of this essay is to review some of the events that occurred at Mankato State during the first quarter of the second century, and to discuss how this institution has addressed the challenges to higher education in a changing world.
