article description
Recounts the complex, multifaceted process of growth and change that transformed Trinity from the "Hartford local," as it was known in the early 20th century, into a premier national liberal arts college. Expansive in scope, the book takes as its domain everything from presidential administrations to athletics, the U.S. Navy's V-12 program during World War II to curricular reform, expansion of the physical plant to student activism, coeducation to neighborhood involvement. Its pages are filled with the faculty, administrators, students, trustees, alumni, and friends who have cherished the College decade after decade and helped sustain its special character. Complementing the text of this richly informative history is a large number of illustrations taken from the College's visual archives and depicting subjects across the entire span of Trinity's history.
