Wake Forest College was founded in 1834 to train Baptist ministers. Now a nationally and internationally recognized university, it is renowned for both its graduate and undergraduate programs. Over 6,000 students attend this university nestled within the beauty of the North Carolina Piedmont. The school's motto, pro humanitate, meaning "for the good of humanity," reflects the university's emphasis on the importance of values, ideals, human service experiences, and faith in the educational process. Wake Forest University explores the founding of the college in 1834, its move to Winston-Salem in 1956, and its development into a modern university beginning in the 1960s. The enduring spirit of Wake Forest is celebrated in this memorable collection of more than 200 vintage photographs. Wake Forest University features many notable alumni that walked the campus pathways including Arnold Palmer, Tim Duncan, Brian Piccolo, W.D. Cash, and Al Hunt.

Thomas K. Hearn III, son of the University's current president, Dr. Thomas K. Hearn Jr., is a healthcare executive. This book evolved from a planned gift for Dr. Hearn, who celebrated his 20th year as president in the fall of 2003. Mr. Hearn was aided by several distinguished individuals in this endeavor: Gene T. Capps, director of the Wake Forest College Birthplace Museum; Chaplain Edgar D. Christman, retired chaplain of Wake Forest University; Dr. J. Edwin Hendricks, Wake Forest history professor whose class offerings include The History of Wake Forest University; and Dr. Edwin G. Wilson, University Provost Emeritus. The author's proceeds from this book will be donated to the Louise Patton Hearn Scholarship Fund at Wake Forest University.
