Chatham University

Chatham University History

Chartered in 1869 as Pennsylvania Female College, today’s Chatham University is well known for leadership programs in sciences, media, politics, and environmental sustainability. The retirement of a transformational president inspired the creating of a long-awaited University history. In collaboration with the writer and archivist, intense research was undertaken to gather the many archival photographs that illustrate the story. Contemporary design and a flexible format layer the robust imagery into the fabric of the story, enlivening the book’s 200+ pages.
