Jacobs recounts the hostility of campus liberal intellectuals who had increasingly resented Eisenhower's presidency and were offended by the New York Times's endorsement of Eisenhower over Adlai E. Stevenson for the 1952 presidential campaign. Jacobs views Eisenhower's years as university president as playing a significant role in preparing him for his White House years.q qJacobs' insights on Eisenhower's presidency at Columbia will be of interest to Eisenhower's biographers, college and university administrators, American studies students, and the general public curious about Eisenhower's public service as a civilian before he became U.S. president.q--BOOK JACKET.aquot;A President for Certain Seasons.aquot; Wilson Quarterly, XIV (Spring, 1990), 110-19.
