Book Signing Scheduled for Creighton University’s History Book

A book signing for the first comprehensive history of Creighton University will be held at the campus bookstore on Tuesday, Oct. 3, from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Author Dr. Dennis Mihelich, University historian, chronicles the school’s legacy through its first 125 years. Entitled “The History of Creighton University 1878-2003,” the book was commissioned by the Rev. John P. Schlegel, S.J., current president. It took five years to complete.

“Most university histories focus on administrative timelines. Ours is written from a student perspective and highlights the curriculum, activities and faculty that were an integral part of their lives,” said Mihelich.

Several photo sections are also included. Cost is $31.25 for hardback and $20 for paperback.
