Historian and President Emeritus Dr. C. Ben Wright has written a fascinating history of Dunwoody College of Technology and its founders – William and Kate Dunwoody. Their vision “To provide for all time a place where youth without distinction on account of race, color, or religious prejudice may learn the useful trades and crafts, and thereby fit themselves for the better performances of life’s duties” created Dunwoody College, a Twin Cities institution that has educated nearly 250,000 students in its 100-year history. Dunwoody, which is currently celebrating its centennial, remains a leader in technical education today. 

No RSVP is required. Alumni, friends and the public are welcome to attend. The event includes a book signing, readings from the book and author Q&A. For further information contact alumni@dunwoody.edu, or call 612-381-3064.
