Description

Hampton University: Celebrating a Legacy and a Legend of Excellence is a pictorial history, documenting the extraordinary stories of this special place and reminding us of the countless individuals responsible for making Hampton what it is today.

This book consists of four parts:

Part I: “Institutional History” chronicles the school’s transformation and examines the philosophical ideals on which it was built from its beginning in 1867 through 1977, just before the administration of Hampton’s 12th president would begin.

Part II: “40 Years of Legendary Leadership” showcases the phenomenally transformative years of the Harvey administration. Readers gain insight into the role that family plays in Dr. Harvey’s success, while also appreciating the extent to which his accomplishments have shaped the domestic and international landscape.

Part III: “Family of Values and Legacy of success” reminds the reader that Hampton’s success goes beyond those who are highlighted in this book. The “Collage of the Extended Hampton University Family,” also a part of this section, is meant to honor all students, faculty, staff, alumni, trustees, politicians, community leaders—some distinguished, others unsung heroes—but all having left an indelible mark on our Home by the Sea.

Part IV is a collection of well wishes from a range of different sources—governmental officials, educators, community leaders, and sponsors.
