Since its beginning in 1876, Juniata College has remained a rare and distinguished institution. It takes an equally exceptional collection of photographs to illustrate the college's proud history. The following photographs, many of them never before published, tells the story in eloquent detail. Juniata College explores the first fifty years of the history of Juniata, from its simple origin in one room over a printing shop to the 1920s as Juniata emerged into a leading liberal arts college. Juniata College is a campus tour that includes visits to buildings no longer standing, recreations of many forgotten traditions, and a special chapter highlighting the town of Huntingdon. Picture postcards and posed snapshots, together with excerpts from historical documents, reveal an engaging story told in an informative and elegant style.
