With unlimited archival access and a journalist's attention to detail, James L. Rogers updates and expands his 1965 publication to bring the university's history into the next century.

The founder of the Texas Normal College, Joshua C. Chilton, declared in 1890 the institution's aim "to become leaders in the education of the young men and women of Texas, fitting them to creditably fill the most important positions in business and professional circles.” By 1965 the eighth president, J. C. Matthews, presided over an institution granting doctorates in the sciences, mathematics, humanities, social sciences, teacher education, business administration, and the fine arts. In the last thirty-five years the institution has grown to become the University of North Texas System under the leadership of Chancellor Alfred Hurley and President Norval Pohl, with campuses in Dallas and Fort Worth. It now stands as the leading university of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Generously illustrated with over eighty photos of people and events on campus, The Story of North Texas provides the definitive history of this institution and is an inspiration to its alumni and friends..

"The story of North Texas provides the definitive history of this institution and is an inspiration to its alumnae and friends." Give me a break! Not all alumnae inspired by its history. Where's the part about the philandering President in the 70's who traded scholarships for sex or the English professor who stalked his female students, or the opera teacher who raped his female students by putting drugs in their drinks!!!
