The Gee Years, 2007–2013 chronicles E. Gordon Gee’s second tenure as president of The Ohio State University and the fourteenth in the university’s history. With previous posts at Vanderbilt, Brown, Colorado, West Virginia, and a previous term at Ohio State, Gee is the longest continually serving college president in the country. His second tenure with Ohio State boasted overall fundraising at record highs, created a $100 million fund for student scholarships, called for affordability for college education for Ohioans which helped to shift study body demographics, and led the charge for restructuring the state of Ohio’s funding of higher education. Part of Gee’s close circle, Herbert B. Asher writes from firsthand experience to relate the major events, developments, and successes of the university from Gee’s recruitment through the president’s departure. The Gee Years reflects on a leader who left an indelible impression on The Ohio State University.
