Temple University's alumni number over a quarter million, and include entertainment legend Bill Cosby and Shirley Tilghman, the first woman president of Princeton University. One of every eight college graduates in the Philadelphia area received their degrees at Temple. Temple Owls are everywhere! "Temple University: 125 Years of Service to Philadelphia, the Nation, and the World", by noted historian and Temple professor James Hilty offers the first full history of Temple University. Lovingly written and beautifully designed, it presents a rich chronicle from founder Russell Conwell's vision to democratize, diversify and broaden the reach of higher education to its present day status as the twenty-eighth largest university and the fifth largest provider of professional education in the United States. With its state-of-the-art technological capabilities, improved amenities, and new multi-million dollar facilities, Temple remains at the forefront of America's modern urban universities. The book captures Temple's long record of service to its North Philadelphia neighbors, its global reach to Rome, Tokyo, and beyond, and its development from a rowhouse campus into a lively, 11,000 resident urban village - all the while assuring 'Access to Excellence'. Along the way, we learn how Temple reacted to and helped shape major developments in the history of American higher education. Featuring 250 full-color photos "Temple University" provides a wonderful keepsake for those who already know the university and will become a valued resource for anyone interested in the urban university.
