    The Cornell- Los Baños Story
    Turk, Kenneth L. (1974)
    The Cornell- Los Baños Story by Dr. Kenneth Turk documents the dramatic two decades of Cornell's involvement with the rebuilding of the University of the Philippines at Los Baños after that university was severely damaged during World War II. Dr. Turk was director of International Agricultural Development at its beginning in 1963 and he spent a year (1954-55) in the early stages of the Cornell-UNLB cooperation. He introduces the story with a glimpse of "World Agriculture and Cornell (for example, the Cornell-Nanking story) and then unfolds in striking detail the phases of the Cornell-Los Baños between 1952 and 1972. The book was published by the New York State College of Agriculture and Life Sciences in 1974.

    Cornell University - The Global Dimension
    Colle, Royal D. (2008-07-17T20:50:24Z)
    From a small hilltop in Ithaca in 1865, Cornell has reached into many corners of the world for some 14 decades to share its knowledge and skills across national boundaries. And for many years the world has come to East Hill as illustrated by the appearance of students from more than 120 countries enrolled at the University. Cornell became global before the word globalization became popular. In these pages, we have tried to capture some of the history of Cornell's steps toward becoming what some have called a transnational university. The challenge to capture in print that extensive and far-reaching history was taken up by the Cornell Association of Professors Emeriti (CAPE). Its members recognized the importance of involving in the story many of those who experienced those adventurous years that laid the foundation for this global university.
