Long Description:

"To our students, however, it was remarkably clear that the early hesitation of the bankers in recognizing the industry and the peculiar consequences in its financial history -- to take only one example -- had parallels in many other infant industries." They plan to maintain and develop the connection, and it seems likely that many of this year's graduates will go into the industry.
