Overview

The history of LaSalle University, located in Philadelphia, dates back nearly 150 years. The institution has occupied various locations throughout the city, including the Bouvier Family Mansion from 1886 to 1930. Original photographs of Archbishop James Wood and the Christian Brothers, who founded LaSalle College in 1863, are among the featured images portraying the personalities who shaped LaSalle.
