" Dwayne Cox and William Morison trace the twists and turns of the University of Louisville's two-hundred-year journey from provincial academy to national powerhouse. They tell the extraordinary story of the Louisville Municipal College and U of L's separate division for African Americans during the era of segregation; they detail the political wrangling as the university became a state-supported institution; and they confront head-on the question of the university's founding date. From the dreams of the U of L's 1798 founders to the 1998 opening of Papa John's Cardinal Stadium, Cox and Morison reveal the fascinating history of the university that has educated hundreds of thousands of students.
