The Claremont Colleges Library<br />Blaisdell’s Vision<br />“My own very deep hope is that instead of one great, undifferentiated university, we might have a group of institutions divided into small colleges - somewhat on the Oxford type - around a library and other utilities which they would use in common. In this way I should hope to preserve the inestimable personal values of the small college while securing the facilities of a great university.” - James A. Blaisdell, 1923<br />
