Knox Magazine Spring 2012 Cover

This commemorative issue of Knox Magazine is dedicated to the rich and storied history of Knox College. President Teresa L. Amott opens the issue with an essay on the vision of Knox's founders and the continuing importance of a liberal arts education. The articles that follow explore a few of the people, places, events, and traditions that have contributed to Knox's storied history -- from long-lost campus traditions to an exploration of student activism on campus; from first-hand accounts of significant historical and athletic events to visions of the prairie, odes to pioneering alumni, and a guide to the final resting place of our founders. And, as President Amott says at the close of her essay, "may you be empowered by the idea that is Knox College."
