Dr. Jeffrey Willis has compiled a vivid pictorial history of Converse College that is sure to become a treasured keepsake for alumnae for years to come. Converse College is arranged in chronological order and features vintage photographs that show both the Converse campus and her students over the past 112 years.
Dr. Willis, the Andrews Helmus Distinguished Professor of History at Converse, draws from his 35-year career at Converse in combining informative text with many previously unseen photographs. Wilson Hall is seen both as it appeared before a tragic 1892 fire and as it reemerged afterwards. Photographs through the years of students and faculty-some even taken by students themselves-allows the reader to step back into years past at Converse.
Converse College is on sale for $25 (which includes shipping and handling), with proceeds benefiting the Converse Alumnae Association. Orders can be placed by calling the Alumnae Office at (864) 596-9011 or 1-800-766-1125.
