I'll comment before I read the full article.

Comparing a list of elite or "luxury" colleges to the fortune 500 is a bit of an apples to oranges thing. It would make more sense to compare the college list with changes in the lists of producers of luxury or very expensive items from 1983 or 50 years ago. Rolex, Jaguar, Brooks Bros etc.

If you look just below the Ivy Type luxury schools at the top of the list I think you'd see a lot of churn over the last 50 yrs.

For example there are quite a few Presbyterian schools that have a national rep in 2011. But in 1960 most if not all of them were good but unknown sleepy little schools that drew most of their students from Presbyterian congregations within a couple of hundred miles of their campus.
