Philadelphia University Organizational History
Philadelphia University: A Rich History, 1884 to 2007 (2007)
This history book couples a fast-paced narrative with compelling imagery to tell the story of the century-long transformation of America’s premier textile school into a modern university. The institution and its builders remain central to the account even as the context shifts from the nineteenth-century textile business to the world of twenty-first century higher education. Written to mark the transition of the Philadelphia College of Textiles and Science into “Philadelphia University” and based on exhaustive archival research and oral history interviews, the book is an example of the brief, lavishly illustrated organizational history book. Softcover, 9” x 9”, 110 pages in full color.
