Earlham College, opened in 1847, is the second oldest Quaker college in the world. From a school intended for the “guarded religious education of the children of Friends,” it has evolved to become an international institution of higher education, with faculty and students from around the world. From a campus where Old Earlham Hall housed everything—dormitories, classrooms, administrative offices, kitchen, library, and dining hall—Earlham now includes over 20 buildings dating back to 1861. Its alumni include a Nobel laureate—Wendell M. Stanley, class of 1926—and two Pulitzer Prize winners—Edwin Way Teale, class of 1922, and Manning Marable, class of 1971. Earlhamites have been politicians, authors, activists, and above all teachers and scientists. A wealth of archival photographs illustrate Earlham’s evolution, highlighting leaders, faculty, student life, off-campus programs, athletics, alumni, and visitors to campus who have ranged from Martin Luther King Jr. to George Wallace.
