Reactions to Hancher vs. Hilton

James G. Hilton, son of Iowa State University president J.H. Hilton:
“In my opinion, it is not only a significant contribution but exceptionally well written. The effort to obtain such detail is phenomenal… I did not notice any discrepancies from what I do remember.”

Julie Goodrich, Iowa History Journal:
“[Hancher vs. Hilton] does a remarkable job of approaching both men and their visions in a candid and clear manner. … This beautifully written book will appeal to those wearing Black and Gold, or Cardinal and Gold, or those who… just want to learn about these fascinating men.”

Dan Weeks, The Iowan:
“Kuhns’ book… details all the academic, political, financial, and personal maneuverings. If you live in a house divided, you might find some juicy anecdotes and argumentative ammunition with which to defend your alma mater here—no matter to which you pledge allegiance.”

KWIT’s Mary Hartnett featured my book on-air and interviewed me about Hancher and Hilton. So did Iowa Public Radio’s Charity Nebbe. Mary Richards featured an interview with me on KHOI’s Community Bookshelf, as well as a series of readings from the book.
