‘An Idea Comes of Age’
New hardcover book chronicles university’s 125-year history
Four years in the making, University of Wisconsin-Stout has published a comprehensive, yet readable, history of its first 125 years.
“An Idea Comes of Age: UW-Stout, 1891-2016” was written by Jerome Poling, assistant communications director for UW-Stout’s University Communications and a previously published author.
The book was commissioned by Chancellor Emeritus Charles W. Sorensen to coincide with the university’s 125th anniversary this year.
“Even though I have spent nearly three decades at UW-Stout, I found this book fascinating and enlightening,” said Chancellor Bob Meyer, a UW-Stout alumnus who also served the university as a faculty member, college dean and administrator. “I know anyone who cares about UW-Stout will want a copy.”
