RM 243 in the University Center In the Student Involvement Zone After 100 years of providing opportunities to fur- ther educate and cultivate great minds, the Univer- sity of Memphis is taking a look back on their rich history. Among the centennial events and beauti- ful Tigers around Town artwork, the details of the university’s historical journey are captured in a collectable book. “We felt the University of Memphis needed a “coffee table” book that would capture all of the exciting and memorable events and personalities in its 100 years of existence,” Dr. Beverly Bond said. University of Memphis history professor, Dr. Beverly Bond, co-wrote “Dreamers. Thinkers. Doers. A Centennial History of the University of Memphis” and explained after reading the book, one will be introduced to interesting facts about the university like why it’s been reincarnated so many times. “The school has gone through five “incarnations” starting out as West Tennessee Normal School, West Tennessee State Teachers College, Memphis State College, Memphis State University and the University of Memphis,” Dr. Bond said. “With each of these name changes, the univer- sity’s mission has changed as well. There are so many interesting and exciting events related to these changes that you’ll have to buy the book to read them all.” However, Dr. Bond didn’t mind sharing more details about an event in the university’s history she believes changed the university’s structure. “To me, the desegregation of the institution in the late 1950s significantly changed the campus and the student body,” Dr. Bond said. “The school was created under Tennessee’s 1909 Education Act as one of four schools for training teachers. There was one school in each of the three Grand Divisions of Tennessee for white stu- dents and one in Nashville for black students. De- segregation changed all four of these institutions.” Dr. Bond believes that learning interesting tid-bits about the university will help build a deeper ap- preciate for the university. She also believes par- ticipating in the different activities surrounding the centennial event will really help foster a stronger sense of Tiger pride. “Bring your friends and family for a tour of the Tigers Around Town tigers here on campus,” Dr. Bond said. “Or buy a cap, pin, sweatshirt, or t- shirt that celebrates our centennial year.” For Dr. Bond, her Tiger pride will shine for years to come through the centennial book. “For me it means a lot to be able to participate in writing the history book as a Memphian and three- time graduate of the university,” Dr. Bond said. “U of M has as proud a heritage and a boundless future as the city of Memphis itself. This school has always been an important part of the commu- nity and will continue to be so for the next one hundred years.”
