FOSL Sponsors Lecture on Kennesaw State University: The First Fifty Years

Thomas Allan Scott, Professor Emeritus at Kennesaw State University, author of the much-praised “Cobb County, Georgia and the Origins of the Suburban South,” (2003), spoke yesterday about his recently published “Kennesaw State University: The First Fifty Years, 1963-2013,” marking the 50th anniversary of the premier educational institution in Northwest Georgia.

Dr. Scott, who retired from KSU in 2011 after 43 years was witness and participant in much of KSU’s fascinating history and shared his thoughts on how the university transformed from a few buildings in a cornfield to the third largest school in the Georgia university system, with some 25,000 students.

The "First Sunday" lecture series is held in the Smyrna Public Library Meeting Room and is sponsored by the Friends of Smyrna Library.
