Rutgers Ready for Celebration of 250th Anniversary

Adam Clark of nj.com wrote an interesting historical sketch highlighting the 250th anniversary of Rutgers.  Clark notes that the institution was "Founded as Queen's College in 1766 to train future ministers for the Dutch Reformed Church, the school was renamed Rutgers College in 1825 and grew into a land-grant institution and, eventually, the state university of New Jersey in 1956."  The article includes links to a number of historical images from Rutger's Special Collections and Archives.
