As part of Arcadia Publishing's Campus History Series, the book, Shepherd University, tells the story of the university from its beginning in 1871 through photographs and stories compiled from the Shepherd Archives, the Office of Communications, alumni, and ancient issues of the Cohongoroota and the Picket. Beginning with the early presidents and school activities, Shepherd University was written through the lens of teacher education, recognizing Shepherd’s beginning as a normal school.
