John Robert Greene With over four hundred photographs compiled from archives and private collections—many never before published, Greene draws on his own expertise as a historian and author of two previous books on the history of Syracuse University to tell a compelling story of a unique institution.
From the early founders to the greatest Orange athletes to the eclectically beautiful campus, The Hill illustrates the life history of this majestic institution. Greene portrays generation after generation of teachers, students, athletes, and benefactors who have graced its halls.
The book concludes with an enlightening interview with University Chancellor Kenneth Shaw in which Shaw reveals his vision for Syracuse University in the twenty-first century. Alumni and friends of Syracuse University will find that this cherished volume evokes not only personal memories but an estimable pride worthy of this noble and enduring institution.
John Robert Greene, professor of history and communication at Cazenovia College, where he has taught since 1979, also lectures at Syracuse University's University College. His previous books include Syracuse University, The Eggers Years, and Syracuse University: The Tolley Years, 1942-1969 (each published by Syracuse University Press) and several books on twentieth-century presidencies, most recently The Presidency of George Bush.
