THE SESQUICENTENNIAL CELEBRATION

THIS MONTH IN KU HISTORY

(Historical facts have been compiled from the KU Archives and Special Collections of the Rohrbach Library; the archives of the Keystone; Kutztown Patriot, Allentown Leader and Reading Eagle; and Beacon on the Hill by Dr. Lee Graver.)

 

In December 1928, Dr. and Mrs. Amos C. Rothermel occupy the new "Principal's Residence" (the current president's residence) on the campus of Kutztown State Teachers College.  It's placement, "50 strides from the curb," and its colonial design made it unique to the area.  The Kutztown Patriot notes that it has unobstructed vistas in every direction.
