Overview

When Monmouth gained university status in 1995, it was the culmination of a long dream. Founded as a junior college in 1933, the school developed into Monmouth College and eventually grew into a modern learning institution that now boasts extensive undergraduate and graduate programs. This book tells the remarkable story of Monmouth's advances and trials as it evolved through the decades into a respected university on the Jersey Shore.

Monmouth University explores the origins of Wilson Hall, from its $10.5

million building costs and frequent summer visits by Pres. Woodrow Wilson to its destruction by fire, rebuilding, and eventual sale to Monmouth College. This unique collection of photographs captures the filming of the 1980 movie Annie, presents visits from such dignitaries as Elizabeth Dole and Martin Luther King Jr., and explains the connection between the university and the influential Guggenheim family. Sports victories, 1950s social events, and the journey to becoming a university are all stories told within Monmouth University.
