West Virginia State College (1891-1991): From the Grove to the Stars.
This book provides a history of West Virginia State College, and also contains stories about the people who have been influential in the college's development and who, in some way, altered its historical course. The first nine chapters discuss the college's inception as the West Virginia Colored Institute and the development of the school through its first nine administrations from 1892 to 1991. Chapters 10 through 13 examine four of the school's outstanding programs over the years: (1) Military Training and the Reserve Officers Training Program; (2) The Aeronautics Program; (3) The International Studies Program; and (4) The Athletic Program. Finally, the last nine chapters tell the individual stories of nine alumni who have led exemplary lives. The appendix lists the various source materials and persons interviewed in compiling the history. (GLR)
