Since 1884, Temple University alumni have overcome poverty, hardship and disappointment to achieve greatness. Daniel Aaron, a refugee from Nazi Germany, grew up in foster care and went on to co-found Comcast Cable, the largest cable television provider in the United States. Theo-Ben Guriab was born in apartheid Namibia and became president of the United Nations General Assembly. Edith Windsor, a daughter of immigrants, brought a case before the Supreme Court at the age of seventy-seven ensuring that all gay people in the United States receive equal protection under the law. Author Ronnyjane Goldsmith, who received her BA, MA and PhD from Temple, presents thirty inspiring profiles of what it means to be Temple Made. The author’s proceeds from the book are dedicated to the Temple University Alumni Scholarship Fund established by the author to assist future alumni.
