The Cornell- Los Baños Story
Turk, Kenneth L.
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.
