1940 Asburian

50th Anniversary Golden Jubilee Yearbook

In 1940 Asbury College published a special edition yearbook commemorating the institution’s 50th anniversary. The first pages of that yearbook contained a brief history of the college, historical pictures, and a group photograph or photograph composite of each graduating class. The Asbury University Archives has made these pages available as a digital PDF file, which can be downloaded here:
