Postcards from Bethel College (KS)

"Postcards from Bethel" is a very interesting article by Keith and David Sprunger available in Mennonite Life.  The authors use postcards as a way to explore institutional history, in this case, the history of Bethel College in N. Newton, KS. 
Topics include: campus buildings and architecture, faculty and classes, student activities, cards used for marketing of the institution, and the messages written by those using the cards.

Keith Sprunger is also author of the recently published, Bethel College of Kansas, 1887-2012 (Bethel College, 2012).
