Beacon on the Hill: Our school's first
hundred years, now 100% online
Lee Graver's entire 1966 book in our web archive
When renowned local historian Dr. Lee Graver documented the first century of his school in Beacon on the Hill: A Centennial History of Kutztown State College
, he clearly knew he was creating a work for the ages. As head of Kutztown's History & Political Science department, Professor Graver understood the enduring value of a well-crafted historical text.
That's why a half century since its publication, Beacon
continues to draw researchers—and, yes, the nostalgic—to Rohrbach Library. Now you can save yourself the trip because we've put the whole book online
