Today 28 members of the Bowling Green University delegation of graduate students visited the University of Glasgow and were amazed to discover that it was a Glasgow Professor, John Nichol, who is credited with establishing the subject of American Literature with his groundbreaking book American Literature: An Historical Sketch, 1620 to 1880 published in 1882.
The students, who are on a study tour in Scotland, had an afternoon of informative presentations on the University of Glasgow past and present. Lesley Richmond from Archive Services provided a short overview of the history of the University with a North American theme. More information on John Nichol can be found on the University Story.
