Purdue’s people and highlights have been immortalized in two new books released for the University’s sesquicentennial celebration. “Ever True: 150 Years of Giant Leaps at Purdue University” chronicles the stories of the faculty, students, alumni and leaders who have played a role in the last 150 years, and “Purdue at 150: A Visual History of Student Life” tells Purdue’s story through decades of student papers, scrapbooks, yearbooks, letters, newspapers, historical photographs and memorabilia.
These books and others about the history of Purdue University are available from Purdue University Press.
