Dr. Samuel Gladding’s latest book–The History of Wake Forest, volume 6, 1983-2005 The Hearn Years–has been published.
Except for the removal of Wake Forest College to Winston-Salem, there has never been a more exciting or impactful time in the history of the institution than during the 22 years of the Hearn administration (1983-2005). This book traces the events that led to the explosive growth and influence of Wake Forest. Within these pages you will read how the transformation of Wake Forest occurred. It involved thousands of individuals and is one of the most amazing stories of institutional change ever. Each year in the process is documented with highlights on the people, decisions, and actions, that made the overall conversion possible.
Congratulations, Dr. Gladding!
