Graduate education in the United States is now only about eighty-five years old and it is still in process of development. Since the establishment of graduate work at Johns Hopkins in 1876 the Graduate school has lived through a number of phases in responding to a variety of educational and social pressures; it has become the major home of research and scholarship, and the training thereof; it has incorporated both foreign and domestic features in its organization and programs; it has affected and been affected by the undergraduate program; it has moved and sometimes been torn between scholarly and professional emphasis; it has grown from a few disciplines in a few institutions to many in many; and it has always exercised its own influence at a pivotal point in the system of higher education.
