Two new books commemorate the 150th Academic Year of Gustavus Adolphus College!
Gustavus: 150 Years of Images and Stories
This book is organized around an alphabet of words, some expected and some not–a "Gustavus Adolphabet," if you will. Each serves as the theme for a featured story, and a layout including related photos and anecdotes is sure to evoke alumni recollections and dreams of this place. Readers may be entertained by perusing from cover to cover or by choosing a random path. The presentation is informal and inviting, yet is content-rich with stories and facts so that even the well-versed Gustie will learn something new.
Gustavus: 150 Years of History
Gustavus:150 Years of History captures the evolution of the College from 1862 to present day in a narrative that draws the readers into the story. It has been fifty years since the College produced such a narrative history. This book not only retells many of the familiar stories wonderfully documented in previous books, but also captures for the first time much of the remarkable growth and change of the last fifty years.
