Synopsis

Written by former UNM president William 'Bud' Davis, ""Miracle on the Mesa"" covers the changes and growth experienced by the University since its founding on February 28, 1889. The story of the ""Miracle on the Mesa"" is told chronologically, within the framework of each administration, beginning with the 'joint presidencies' of Elias S Stover and Hiram Hadley, who served from 1892 through 1897, and ending with Louis Caldera, current president of UNM. More than just a history of the university, Davis' lively text also provides a unique look at Albuquerque and its citizens during each time period. UNM alumni, former and current UNM students, and former and current faculty members and administrators will enjoy reading about the efforts that have gone into making the University of New Mexico the quality institution of higher learning that it is today: the miracle on the mesa.
