A Book of Memories. Kent State University, 1910-1992.
Hildebrand, William H., Ed.; And Others
This book presents a historical overview of higher education trends, political climates, and social and cultural movements, as well as anecdotal reminiscences of campus life at Kent State University (Ohio) between its founding in 1910 and 1992. Essays by six faculty members and administrators provide their personal insights and memories of the major eras of Kent State's history, following the university from its normal school beginnings in 1910 to its present status as a comprehensive state institution of higher learning. The book also includes hundreds of black-and-white and color photographs selected from the University Archives, including pictures from the campus political upheavals that led to the May 4, 1970 intervention by National Guard troops and ensuing student deaths.
