The Cornerstone on College Hill
An Illustrated History of the University of Alaska Fairbanks
Distributed for University of Alaska Press
A century later, the University of Alaska Fairbanks still boasts the most magnificent natural setting of any American university—but in every other way it would be unrecognizable to its first students. It is now a major research university, offering degrees in a wide range of programs to students drawn from throughout Alaska and around the world. This book celebrates the University’s centennial by telling the story of the journey from those small beginnings to the present, accompanied by historical and contemporary photos that make that history come to life.
