UNION COLLEGE HISTORY CAPTURED IN NEW BOOK

                                                                       

LINCOLNÑFrom the days of wooden sidewalks to the days of wireless technology, UnionÕs history comes alive in Union College: Light Upon the Hill. The history book, released in honor of the Union College Alumni AssociationÕs centennial celebration (1904-2004), highlights the historical firsts and long-lasting traditions that have come together to develop todayÕs college community.

            The book is a compilation of excerpts from Everett DickÕs original book, Union: College of the Golden Cords, combined with previously unpublished manuscript copy by current Union College professor and historian George Gibson and articles from CORDmagazine (UnionÕs alumni magazine), college staff and student writers. The text is accompanied by more than 200 photos from the late 1800s through the present, including a 16-page color section.

            This keepsake book is available through the Advancement office. For more information or to obtain a copy of Union College: Light Upon the Hill, e-mail advance@ucollege.edu, visit the Alumni and Friends section of the Web site at www.ucollege.edu or call Advancement at 402.486.2503.
