New Mexico Military Institute featured as it celebrates 125th anniversary

The November 2016 issue of New Mexico Magazine features an article on New Mexico Military Institute in Roswell, NM.  NMMI is celebrating the 125th anniversary of its founding in 1891.   The institution was founded as Gross Military Academy. It became a territorial institution in 1893 and the name changed to New Mexico Military Institute. A junior college program was added in 1915 that continues. A baccalaureate program was offered from 1948-1956.

The NMMI alumni organization maintains a website that includes an extensive gallery with more than 35 postcard images as part of a larger virtual museum. Other pages include photographs, newspaper clippings, memorabilia, and other items.
