Gordon Gee, eleventh president of The Ohio State University, from the closely held search process to his departure.

The twelfth volume in the history of The Ohio State University, it includes the personal and public life of Gee. When Ohio State President Gordon Gee lost his beloved wife, Elizabeth, to cancer in 1991 and became a single parent, he not only carried on, but led the university through some of its most exhilarating but most contentious times.

By 1996, he was so popular, private polls said he could run for Ohio governor, and win--on either ticket. When he, and his new bride, Constance Bumgarner Gee, left instead for Brown University in January 1998, they left behind a stronger Ohio State and a string of stories about power brokers, politicians, and just plain Buckeyes. Populated by such figures as Les Wexner and George Voinovich, Andy Geiger and John Cooper, Bernadine Healy and John Glenn, The Gee Years is inside baseball, written by a member of Gees inner circle, his communications director.

From the board room to the press box, from fundraisers to sit-ins, this is the story of a singular academic leader and more than seven years in the history of the complex university he headed.
