From its inception as a normal school in 1906, Eastern Kentucky University has provided a century of educational opportunity and has risen to meet the changing needs of students across the commonwealth. Dedicated to high-quality instruction, service, and scholarship, Eastern is a student-centered comprehensive public university located in Richmond, Kentucky. This volume covers the second 50 years of a regional university that has gradually shifted focus from teacher education to a more expanded curriculum including public health, law enforcement, and business, as well as the traditional liberal arts. Eastern Kentucky University: 1957–2006 illustrates the university's growth through more than 200 images from the Eastern Kentucky University Archives that capture the building of a university, athletic competition, academics, and student life.

Authors Jacqueline Couture, Deborah Whalen, and Chuck Hill are currently employed by the Eastern Kentucky University Archives. In the course of reorganizing a large photograph collection, they discovered a wealth of unpublished images that they felt would be of interest in Eastern's centennial year. They previously authored a volume covering the first 50 years of Eastern's history that was also included in Arcadia Publishing's Campus History Series.
