Enduring Vision traces the past of George Williams College

Enduring Vision

The early history of George Williams College comes alive in a new book, Enduring Vision: From an Encampment to a Distinctive College by authors Rita Yerkes and Wilma Miranda. This book traces the story of GWC from its foundation as the Western Secretarial Institute at Lake Geneva in 1885 to its establishment in Chicago to its move to Downers Grove, Ill., covering the years 1884 through 1961.

With anecdotes of the remarkable individuals who shaped the college and its mission as well as an understanding of the external historical factors at play, Enduring Vision tells the comprehensive story of this important era in George Williams College’s history.

Meet the authors in person at GWC’s Coming Home Reunion on July 12, 2014, where Yerkes and Miranda will be signing copies of the book on campus.
