This is a picture book that reminds one of a college yearbook. The pictures provide a wealth of knowledge for anyone interested in learning about Bethany College, a Disciples of Christ college established by Alexander Campbell.I particularly enjoyed the first four (of ten chapters) entitled Alexander Campbell, Bethany, Architecture, and Legends and Landmarks. I was especially pleased to see, on p. 16, a photo of the Class of 1858, which included T. V. Berry and C. C. Moore. Unfortunately, individuals in the photo are not specifically identified, but it is nonetheless nice to see.Chapter nine, Notable Bethanians, was also a favorite, as I learned of several "famous" people who are alumni of the College.There is no index, but due to its size and organization, the book is fairly easy to navigate and a joy to read.
