Join Tulane University Archivist Ann E. Smith Case as she recounts the history of this illustrious university using vintage images.
Tulane University was founded as the Medical College of Louisiana in 1834 by seven young doctors who saw the need for trained physicians in the city of New Orleans. In 1847, it evolved into the public University of Louisiana, also offering law, liberal arts, and science coursework; it became a private institution in 1884 after Paul Tulane's donation. The addition of Newcomb College, the nation's first coordinate women's college, completed the university's basic structure in 1886. In 2005, Hurricane Katrina struck, forcing Tulane to close for a semester. It emerged from the floodwaters restructured and renewed into the progressive university focused on public service that it is today. The photographs in this book take readers through the collegiate experience of former Tulane and Newcomb students to illustrate the meaning of the Tulane motto, ""Non sibi sed suis""--""Not for one's self, but for one's own.""

distinguished history. The years have brought a multitude of changes to the school--the name has changed, the location has changed, and the student
population has changed. However, what remains steadfast at Centenary is a commitment to the highest standards of academic excellence, and an
environment that fosters growth and achievement.
Within these pages, students, alumni, faculty, and friends of the college will discover the Centenary of the past--the early days in Jackson, Louisiana, the devastation of the Civil War, the move to the
Shreveport campus, and the championship football team that once was. Vintage photographs of the school's founders and supporters, the campuses, and the students will evoke memories of years past and
reflect the traditions that continue at Centenary today. Accompanied by informative captions, the photographs include aerial views of the physical layout of the school, early sporting events, academic
settings, and notable figures who contributed to the institution as graduates, teachers, and dynamic leaders.
