John Carroll University Featured in New Book

Local author releases new book featuring stunning collection of vintage images

Jan. 23, 2013 - PRLog -- New to Arcadia Publishing’s popular Campus History Series is John Carroll University by local author Marian J. Morton. This pictorial history boasts more than 200 vintage images and provides readers with a unique opportunity to reconnect with the history that shaped their community.

In September 1886, St. Ignatius College opened in a working-class neighborhood on Cleveland's Near West Side. The one classroom building was unpretentious and its opening was ignored by Cleveland's daily newspapers.

Over the next 125 years the small college became John Carroll University, moved to University Heights, built handsome buildings on a landscaped campus, gained students and faculty, and achieved national recognition. This is the story of how that happened.

Marian J. Morton is emeritus professor of history at John Carroll University. This is her sixth book for Arcadia Publishing. The images in this book are from the John Carroll Archives including material from Integrated Marketing and Communications, the Center for Service and Social Action, and the Campus Ministry. Other images were culled from the St. Ignatius High School Archives, Cleveland Ursuline Archives and Cleveland State University's Special Collections.

Highlights of John Carroll University include:
•   Describes the university’s inauspicious beginnings in Ohio City, the obstacles the university had to overcome in the next decades, and its emergence as a nationally recognized institution of higher learning.
•   Contains photos of University Heights and the Ohio City neighborhood where St. Ignatius High School, the university’s offspring, is still located.
•   Captures the very significant Jesuit presence at John Carroll through the 1980s.
•   Provides a picture of changing student life from the 1880s to the present including past presidents and faculty.

Available at area bookstores, independent retailers, and online retailers, or through Arcadia Publishing at (888)-313-2665 or online.
