Referring to this book in One Hundred Years of Administrative Law (1937), Arthur Vanderbilt wrote that "Goodnow was the first to perceive the peculiar significance for the study of administrative law of the comparative method as applied to the administrative systems of France, Germany, England and the United States, which, although involving common problems, also present sharp contrasts at many vital points" (I:120-121). While a member of the Columbia faculty, FRANK J. GOODNOW [1859-1939] was the first individual in the United States to hold a professorship in administrative law. He became the first president of the American Political Science Association, which offers an annual award in his name. He was president of Johns Hopkins University from 1915-1929.
