"The People's School is a must-read history of Oregon State University...William G. Robbins succeeds where so many other writers fail. He has produced a first-rate engrossing, smoothly written and revealing contextual history of Oregon State University."

- Richard W. Etulain, The Oregonian

"For those of us who care deeply about OSU, as Robbins clearly does, reading this meticulously researched and precisely written book is like sitting down with a great-grandparent who has a sharp memory and a lot of love for the family, but is no longer worried about appearances. We get to learn all that stuff we've always wondered about the family stories, for better and for worse. Ah-ha moments, frowns and broad smiles abound."
