The Emporia Gazette published several excellent articles by Bobbi Mlnar this week featuring the College of Emporia. The institution, located in Emporia, Kansas, was founded in 1883 and operated until 1973. The first article, "Birth of an institution," focuses on the founding and early history. In "Success of the 'Fighting Presbies," Mlnar covers athletic programs.
"The booming glory days," are the focus of the third article.
Mlnar then explores the institution's decline in "Falling on hard times: The end of C. of E."
The series concludes with "Alumni keep the spirit alive."
