Covering almost 100 years, the new campus photo history book titled Humboldt State University shares the growth of the college on the hill over Arcata. A loyal alumna, Katy Tahja shares her love for her alma mater in this new book debuting just in time for the May 2010 commencement ceremonies.
Every university has hundreds of photos in their archives and author Tahja hand-picked more than 200 vintage images to depict a century of progress. The book is arranged with chapters featuring the six presidents who guided Humboldt over the decades, areas of study, professors, social life on campus, sports, and the physical beauty of the area.
Readers will discover photos showing campus reaction to serious themes like World War II and Vietnam, and silly events like Lumberjack Days and costume dances. Tahja tried to find photos never published before, and alumni sent in photos to be featured in the book. Every Humboldt alumni would enjoy the book just trying to find themselves in the photos.
Humboldt State University is available at the HSU Bookstore, independent book shops and other local retailers, as well as on-line. The author will be doing book signings locally and welcomes speaking engagements.
