Storer College alumni gather to honor the institution's legacy

A report on the annual alumni gathering at the site of Storer College in Harpers Ferry, WV was published by The Washington Post on October 22, 2015.  Stephanie Shapiro captures the emotional ties of alumni to their former institution that closed in 1955.  She also highlights the efforts of alumni and the National Park Service to protect the legacy of those who served Storer or attended as students.

A previous post on the College History Garden includes links to a collection of historical photographs, the National Park brochure for Storer College, and a dissertation focused on the institution's history by Dawne R. Burke.
