A broad cross-section of citizens from the city's business community, organisations and institutions joined forces in 1921 to form the organisation "Aarhus University Association", which, together with Aarhus Municipality, became the driving force behind the campaign to ensure that Denmark's second university should be in Aarhus. Aarhus set about the task with great thoroughness, building up scholarly collections, establishing academic associations, and ensuring that the Municipal Hospital was brought up to such a standard that it was the best in the province. Both before and until many years after the establishment of Aarhus University in 1928, the Aarhus University Association collected funds for university buildings and halls of residence. The state was not involved in funding buildings until the 1940ies. The book relates the story of the establishment of Aarhus University in great detail.
