Hardt examined the baccalaureate origin of men and women who earned doctorates in the physical sciences, biological sciences, social sciences, education, arts and professions. His report was based on detailed information on the output of 295 baccalaureate institutions which produced at least 100 doctoral recipients between 1920 and 1961.

California Institute of Technology takes the top spot in the survey. DePauw was the highest-ranked Indiana college or university.
